No new Assassin's Creed game in 2016

I'm glad they are taking a year off, the franchise could really benefit from it. I still need to play Unity and Syndicate, so at least I have until 2017 to get caught up again. I guess we'll also see Watch Dogs 2 take it's place later this year.

Itís an exciting time for Assassinís Creed.

Weíre only a few months removed from the debut of Jacob and Evie Frye, the stars of Assassinís Creed Syndicate. Weíre proud of the talented team in Quebec City, and all of our studios around that world that took part in bringing the Victorian London adventures of our twin Assassins to life. We truly hope you enjoy playing Assassinís Creed Syndicate as much as our studios enjoyed making it.

Also, we recently unveiled the first images of Academy Award nominee Michael Fassbender in action as our lead Assassin in the upcoming Assassinís Creed movie that hits theaters on December 21, 2016. Having already visited the set, we canít begin to describe how surreal and exciting it is to walk the real-world halls of Abstergo, or see the intricate replicas of Assassin weaponry. We have an outstanding cast and crew that want to honor the rich lore of Assassinís Creed and bring a fresh perspective to the ongoing battle between Assassins and Templars thatís fit for the big screen.

This year, we also are stepping back and re-examining the Assassinís Creed franchise. As a result, weíve decided that there will not be a new Assassinís Creed game in 2016. Since the release of Assassinís Creed Unity, weíve learned a lot based on your feedback. Weíve also updated our development processes and recommitted to making Assassinís Creed a premier open-world franchise. Weíre taking this year to evolve the game mechanics and to make sure weíre delivering on the promise of Assassinís Creed offering unique and memorable gameplay experiences that make history everyoneís playground.

Weíll have more to share on all of the above soon. In the meantime, we want to say thank you to our millions of fans around the world for your continued support.

I'm OK with a break as I have five unplayed AC games, and that doesn't include Syndicate, which I hope to play someday assuming I'm not completely burned out on the franchise.

That's fine, willing to wait. Only one I haven't beaten yet is Rogue (or any of the 2D Arcade scrollers). Love the franchise.
