Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to Be Supported Through 2019

Assassin's Creed won't be getting a new main entry in 2019, but the upcoming Odyssey will be getting regular updates throughout the year.

Citing the fact that last year’s Assassin’s Creed Origins and this year’s Odyssey were developed at the same time, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot stated at Gamescom (via GameSpot) that there will be no full-fledged installment to the series in 2019.

Instead of a brand new game next year, Guillemot said there will be regular additions of new content to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey through 2019, adding there will be “some new possibilities for play” with the updates.

It appears the development team, which was separated for the simultaneous development of both Origins and Odyssey, will be brought back together for the latter’s updates through the year after release.

This is the first game in the Assassin’s Creed series to allow players to play as either a man or a woman, and it is also the first to take place in ancient Greece. Considering the improvements Origins brought and the series’ reputation for yearly releases, this new approach may give fans and the developers the room they need to really breathe some fresh air into Ubisoft’s flagship franchise.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is scheduled to be released for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on October 5 of this year. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more news and info on the franchise as it develops.
