No New Assassin's Creed Title In 2019

At Gamescom, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot explained that fans won't get a new Assassin's Creed title in 2019, but instead the company will support upcoming title Assassin's Creed Odyssey (out on October 5).

Back in 2016 Ubisoft announced that the series wouldn't be annual as it had been up until that point. Indeed, after the release of Assassin's Creed Syndicate the series skipped 2016, following it up with Assassin's Creed Origins in 2017.

As to why Origins and Odyssey came out in successive years, Gamespot reports Guillemot said, "It's just because the team were working separately, so we have two games now, on year after the other. But next year you're not going to have a fully fledged one."

Soulcalibur VI Adds Tira As DLC, Introduces Libra Of Soul Story Mode

Soulcalibur VI Adds Tira As DLC, Introduces Libra Of Soul Story Mode

With Soulcalibur VI launching later this year, fans are wondering which of their favorite characters might be returning for this soft reboot. While mainstays like Sophitia and Mitsurugi were never in doubt, Soulcalibur VI has not had many major returning villains yet with characters like Cervantes still MIA. The villainous aspect at least is being addressed with the reintroduction of Tira through a new trailer today.

Tira is the first announced DLC character for the game, which itself does not come out for two months. While she is part of the season pass, she will also be available as standalone DLC later, though Bandai Namco's wording seems to imply that preordering the season pass is the only way to get her early. The Soulcalibur community is fairly split on whether announcing the DLC before the entire roster for the game has even been revealed is alright or not, but Tekken brand manager Mark Julio argues that it's an extra incentive to reward players who purchase early.

People look at DLC as a negative. It’s a preorder bonus, so if you were buying game anyways you’ll get access to Tira no problem. There’s nothing wrong with giving incentive to those who are purchasing the title.
