'Assassin's Creed' Creator Introduces New Game Via Teaser Video, Drops Episodic Model

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is a third person action-adventure survival game.

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is in development at Panache Digital, a new studio founded by the creative director of the first two Assassin's Creed games, Patrice D├ęsilets, who left Ubisoft in 2013 after issues arose surrounding the production of 1666, which was another historical fiction game reportedly set in Amsterdam.

Patrice D├ęsilets has revealed the debut teaser trailer of Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey alongside a few new details of the pre-historical fiction title.

In a long and often rambling conversation on the game, Desilets hinted that resource management was a part of the game, as its story tracks human evolution from Africa to elsewhere in the world. The trailer's description adds, "The player will relive the early story of mankind with a documentary twist". The game was initially going to play "hour to hour" according to Desilets, but is now more open and holds the player's hand a lot less, making the episodic nature less viable.
