New Assassin's Creed This Year Claims Ubisoft's CEO

Speaking to MCV, Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot claimed that a new Assassin’s Creed will be coming this year, stating that it will be “something interesting around the Assassin’s brand.”

Guillemot didn’t expand further, but reading between the lines, it’s possible that this year’s Assassin’s Creed game may not be a direct sequel. Of course, at this early stage it’s impossible to be sure.

Yves Guillemot also expanded on his desire to overtake the ‘big two’ in Activision and EA.

“We are the number three company in the world on our own – and our goal is to beat those guys,” he claimed.

“We got from number 25 to number three, so we think we can continue and that it is possible. It’s not certain, of course, but we are taking the steps that we think will get us there.”
