The next installment for the critacally acclaimed assassin game, Assassin's Creed by Ubisoft, could be delayed until 2018.

Re-Examining The Franchise

Ubisoft announced earlier this year that the Assassin's Creed franchise will be 're-examined' and that no new games will be released in 2016. This sabbatical could extend however until the year 2018 or as long as until the game is ready.

According to an interview with GameSpot, co-founder Yves Guillemot said that the series will be back when it's essentially ready and not necessarily on the year 2017. When asked why Ubisoft decided to give Assassin's Creed more development time, Guillemot answered that they saw an opportunity to "take it to another level." So they decided to take time to make the "experience" more "fantastic."

Ezio Collection

The disappointment at the absence of a new game is quelled temporarily as the new Assassin's Creed Ezio Collection will be released on November for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The bundle will include remastered versions of three Assassin's Creed games starring fan favorite Ezio Auditore da Firenze. Assassin's Creed 2 from 2009, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood from 2010, and Assassin's Creed Revelations from 2011. It's complete with all the single player campaign and all the DLCs. The Ezio Collection will also include the three-part short movie called Assassin's Creed: Lineage featuring Ezio's backstory and the animated movie Assassin's Creed: Embers.

The Ezio Collection will not include the hide-and-seek multiplayer modes however, and will costs $59.99. The Collection will also include a coupon worth $8 off for a ticket to the upcoming Assassin's Creed movie adaptation starring Michael Fassbender.

Assassin's Creed Movie

The movie adaptation of Assassin's Creed are impressing fans so far. Especially when it's been confirmed that all historical scenes of the movie will be in Spanish. They played around in English for a while, but it was obvious that speaking in Spanish is the way to go. Subtitles will be present of course.
