Assassin’s Creed may have been milked into the ground by Ubisoft now, but once upon a time, it was a promising franchise with a vision for its gameplay and story. That was when it was under the stewardship of its creator, Patrice Desilets. Desilets ultimately left Ubisoft, and apparently, he has since been working on his next game along with his studio, Panache Digital Games.
Now, speaking at the Reboot Develop event in Croatia, he announced his newest game- Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey. A trailer accompanied the announcement, but it didn’t offer much information on the game itself. Suffice it to say, the game looks to have a historical framing perspective, and might be offering a look at the future of mankind and its inevitable technological progress.
No gameplay footage was available, and no further gameplay details were announced. We did not even get a firm date for the game’s release.
That said, I will be greatly interested in this title whenever it is made available. I just hope that they manage to come up with a name that’s less of a mouthful, is all.
