Goddammit, does companies nowadays dont know the meaning of surprise?

This "reveal" is probably due to the leak, and now they are in a damage control of sorts, but still.Honestly this sucks.Eurogamer, Kotaku and all these damn leakers need to chill the damn down.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

Yeah, E3 gets less and less surprises each year because of leaks, makes it less fun to watch sadly. 



I am actually surprised that there will be a new AC so soon after Origins. I don't think it will release in 2018 though but rather February or March, pitting it against RDR would be really dumb



Nothing to see here, move along

Guessing it'll be a two year gap and release at the end of next year.

I still need to play Origins, and I saw a rumour that this was a sequel and you play as Bayek, which would be nice since I think the reason everyone likes Ezio the best is that we got to spend more time and learn more about him. Then again I won't really complain if it's a new person, either way Ancient Greece is pretty cool... not as cool as what everyone has wanted for ages, Fuedal Japan, but still cool.

A report from earlier today, which is probably why they confirmed it now, said there would be a new protagonist where you could choose the gender of the character. I hope you are right though, i'd rather play as a defined character like Bayek(or even Aya) than some avatar-character

The first AC Odyssey leaker a few weeks ago said they were aiming for Q1-Q2 2019, because they wanted to focus solely on marketing Splinter Cell Holiday 2019. The 2nd AC Odyssey leaker said it will release this fiscal year, so before April. Dunno if it will release Holiday 2018 or Q1 2019 now, Holiday 2018 is empty for them right now since Skull & Bones got delayed, and I can't see Ubisoft going a Holiday with no AAA releases, so I'm betting it'll release this Holiday.

The good news is, we don't have to worry about quality slipping because of the return to yearly, they have 3 main AC teams assisted by multiple smaller teams at other studios. Because Origins got delayed by a year, the games the other 2 AC teams were working on got delayed by a year as well. Which means that Odyssey, which is most likely being developed by the AC Revelations/Unity team, has been in development since AC Unity was finished in late 2014. Which means, with a Holiday 2018 release, Odyssey will have the same 4 years of development that Origins had.

What? like we didn't expect ANOTHER AC game was right around the corner? The setting is the surprise I suppose, but this was inevitable.

lol Odyssey. Mario much? ^^
(Yes, i know it's a book, but the coincidence is funny)
Anyways, i thought they had learned their lesson with yearly installments, but clearly not. Let's hope it isn't. Even if theres more time to develop the titles, the fatigue will settle in again.
