Assassin’s Creed: Unity isn’t out yet, but Ubisoft has announced future plans for a new entry in the series. Ubisoft Quebec will spearhead the development of a future, next-gen Assassin’s Creed game, though they wouldn’t confirm if it will be next year’s Assassin’s Creed.
Ubisoft Quebec Managing Director, Nicolas Rioux confirmed the news on the Ubisoft blog. His team has been involved with the Assassin’s Creed franchise for years and is excited to finally lead development.
Since 2010, our understanding of the franchise has increased each year. We were involved in Brotherhood. We were involved in Revelations. We were involved in Assassin’s Creed III. With AC III we were working on the biggest DLC for the franchise – The Tyranny of King Washington. After that we were also involved with Freedom Cry. We have the confidence of the brand team and also from Ubisoft to take leadership of an upcoming Assassin’s Creed title. The team is ready for the next big step.
Ubisoft Quebec’s involvement doesn’t mean that Ubisoft Montreal is bowing out. The Montreal team will continue to develop Assassin’s Creed games, they’ll just get longer breaks between each installment. They are currently hard at work on Assassin’s Creed: Unity, which launches October 28 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
