In a third-quarter sales report posted earlier today, Ubisoft have confirmed that Watch Dogs 2 is planned to release before April 2017, the end of their fiscal year.
In the same report, Yves Guillemot, Ubisoft Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, announced that no new Assassin’s Creed game is coming this year. He stated:
“We are now in a position to take the decision not to release a new Assassin’s Creed game in 2016-17 [fiscal year]” as an attempt to“give the brand a new dimension.”
He also made reference to a “new high-potential AAA brand with strong digital live services” which has not been announced yet.
