Confirmed by Ubisoft, the next entry in the long-running Assassin’s Creed series will launch by March 31, 2018, which is the end of their current fiscal year. This confirmation comes after numerous leaks and rumors, but officially from the Assassin’s Creed UK Twitter:

It would be safe to assume that Ubisoft’s next AC game can release Q4 this year, but expect to hear more at this year’s E3. Ubisoft declined to comment if the series is returning to the annual release format. This will be the first AC game we have seen since Syndicate, so it will be interesting to see what the team has been cooking up since then.
