Time for another Assassin's Creed report? You bet. Earlier this year we first started hearing about 'Rift', a rumoured small-scale Assassin's Creed title to hit store shelves before the big live service revamp with Assassin's Creed Infinity. As it turns out it's back in the headlines again, this time because of, well, a delay.
According to Bloomberg, 'Assassin's Creed Rift', which is reportedly set in Baghdad, has been shifted from February 2023 into the following fiscal year, which starts in April. The report says Ubisoft is currently aiming for somewhere around May-June 2023.
Kotaku also reports the very same delay, with less specifics as to the exact timing of Ubisoft's move. That report also touches on a wide selection of delays and cancellations currently ongoing at Ubisoft as the company is supposedly reshuffling to focus on titles with "higher priority".
Ahead of 2023, the company does have Skull & Bones finally launching this November. However, it doesn't seem like plain sailing over there either (sorry, we had to), with reports that the game lacks depth in every measurable area. Ouch.
Is there anything upcoming from Ubisoft that you're looking forward to? Comment below!
So many Ubisoft problems
@SplooshDmg Indeed. I hope this just means they’re slowing the f down and stop releasing half-assed stuff at launch. I like Ubisoft but if you want play their games in a less broken state you have to wait at least half a year post launch.
This is especially important if you’re on PC. Their PC ports are always released with garbage optimization in my experience.
Cancelling smaller products to focus on the larger ones that are having trouble being developed, seems to be a very common trend. Especially with larger companies selling off their assets.
It's almost as if the pressures of maintaining ever increasing profits on ever increasing production sizes isn't sustainable and it's all starting to collapse under its own weight.
@Richnj Don't be silly, they can just raise the prices to $100 and it'll all be fine! When you run out of budget, just charge more! It works for governments, it can work for discretionary entertainment products, too!
I started playing Shining Resonance (Switch version) and remembered why the PS3/360 was probably the greatest generation of gaming.
@NEStalgia Yeah, the PS360 was a great gen. Hardware was poor, but the software is absolutely the best.
Ubisoft has problems in house. I won't be supporting them again until they get their crap together.
