Ubisoft: Assassin’s Creed 2017 Will Have Live Services Different From Ghost Recon & Rainbow Six

During Ubisoft’s earnings call yesterday, CFO Alain Martinez said this year’s Assassin’s Creed will include a live services model, but it will be different than what was seen in Ghost Recon Wildlands and Rainbow Six Siege: So what we can say is clearly all our games now are bringing live operations, different type. As you said, the live operation of Ghost Recon, are different from the one of Rainbow Six and will be different from the one of Assassin’s Creed. But clearly, the philosophy of all the game that we make is to be able to justify and to bring live operations for a long life, as long as we think it fits for the game. For the upcoming fiscal year, Ubisoft expects over 25% of their revenue to come from recurring players’ investment in all games, including Assassin’s Creed. Asked if Assassin’s Creed will come back as an annual franchise, CEO Yves Guillemot said they won’t be commenting on that, but the new game will be shown “soon.” Guillemot was also asked about Far Cry 5 possibly being a Western game, and he said they can’t comment on rumors, but we will get a “lot more information very soon on that game.” Here’s some other highlights READ FULL STORY…

Ubisoft Confirms New Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, and The Crew, For Some Reason

No matter how you pronounce its name, we can all agree that Ubisoft is one of the most prolific AAA video game publishers these days. While rivals like Activision and EA seem to narrow their focus on and a handful of hits, the French video game empire has a relatively wider portfolio. However, that doesn’t mean Ubisoft is above milking the same few cash cows, and thanks to a recent fiscal year earnings report, we now know which virtual teats are about to be squeezed yet again. Ubisoft confirmed that new installments in the Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, The Crew, and South Park franchises will all be released before the end of the next fiscal year. We already knew about South Park: The Fractured But Whole, the delayed South Park RPG sequel. However, the rest of these games are theoretically games that have yet to be revealed. [embedded content] We say theoretically because numerous pre-E3 leaks have already told us much of what to expect from the future of these franchises. After a taking a year off to give the awful Michael Fassbender movie time to shine, this year’s Assassin’s Creed will almost surely be READ FULL STORY AT GEEK!

New Assassin’s Creed Origins Report Surfaces, Claims It Features Open World and Two Protagonists

Yesterday, we shared a report that appeared on Reddit over the weekend, claiming that the Egypt-based Assassin’s Creed game (code named Empire) will release as Origins. We were also told that Ubisoft has placed an order for info materials pertaining to Origins as well as Far Cry 5. Now, another report has surfaced that purports to have more info about the upcoming Assassin’s Creed game. “Ubisoft sources” have told WWG on condition of anonymity that Origins will feature a “vast open world” set in ancient Egypt and will have two protagonists – a male and a female.

The site further writes: A development source we spoke to compared it numerous times to Bethesda’s Skyrim. They say that impressions of the project internally are so far positive. The game will apparently grant the player considerably more freedom, featuring a greater emphasis on exploration over previous entries in the series. One source tells us that this is the biggest Assassin’s Creed the company has ever created and is “huge” READ FULL…
