Here’s a fun fact for you: The last time we missed out on a full, new Assassin’s Creed game was 2008. Since AC2 released in November 2009, there has been a fresh game every year - usually around October/November - without fail. Some years we’ve had multiple Assassin’s Creeds. We’ve had the games on console, mobile, and PC. We’ve had comics, books, and short films. We’ve had figurines and replica clothing and even bottled water. Quite frankly, 2016 was time for a break.
