Assassin’s Creed Origins development started in early 2014 after the completion of Black Flag. The franchise had been following a yearly release cycle, but after the release of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate in 2015, Ubisoft decided to give the franchise a break and hence Assassin’s Creed Origins was delayed to 2017. When asked to give series a break, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot stated that the disappointing sales of Syndicate were one of the primary reason, and hence development team was ordered to concentrate on improving the quality of the individual games.
This move looks to be paying off really well. Assassin’s Creed Origins is looking absolutely stunning, expectations of Ubisoft in terms of Assassin’s Creed Origins sales are also high. Are you guys excited about the game?
