Since 2007, more than a dozen Ubisoft studios have contributed to the Assassin’s Creed franchise, but only one has been trusted with shaping its future. Until now.
Today, Ubisoft announces the development of the first mainline Assassin’s Creed game to be led outside of Ubisoft Montreal.
Ubisoft Montreal created and cultivated the series across all seven of its core instalments (including this year’s Unity), but the responsibility will now be shared with the studio’s unassuming neighbour in Quebec City.
Ubisoft Quebec has hitherto made somewhat peripheral contributions to the series, including Assassin’s Creed III‘s Homestead and Black Flag‘s island Hideout.
