“No Plans” For Assassin’s Creed Origins On Nintendo Switch
It will likely come as no surprise, but Ubisoft has reiterated that there are “no plans” to release Assassin’s Creed Origins on Nintendo Switch.
The game will take players to Ancient Egypt at a crucial time that will shape the world, letting them discover the secrets behind the Great Pyramids, forgotten myths, the last pharaohs, and, engraved in long-lost hieroglyphics, the origin story of the Assassin’s Brotherhood.
“We’re shipping on Xbox One, Xbox One X, PS4, PS4 Pro, and PC,” game director Ashraf Ismail explained to Gaming Bolt. “There are no plans to release it on Switch.”
The most recent games in the series that saw release on Wii U were Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, although, after poor sales, led Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot to once state: “Nintendo customers don’t buy Assassin’s Creed.”
That saw Ubisoft recognise that Nintendo’s audience were more interested in experiences like Just Dance, and, therefore, had looked “to focus more on the types of games they are interested in.”
