The lights are on
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot says that his company has three titles from three different teams in production for the blockbuster franchise.
Speaking with Kotaku, Guillemot said, “We are making sure the teams who are creating the different iterations have enough time – two years, three years, so that they can take risk and they can change the concept enough so that it can be appealing and fresh.”
Presumably, the three titles Guillemot is referring to are Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and the next two annual installments. It’s possible that he means ACIV, next year’s game, and some sort of mobile spin-off, but that would make it tough for the ACIV team to have two years on whatever the 2015 title ends up being.
Well they didn´t turn out bad for now, I would erase the multiplayer and focus on single player, or make a coop mode where we play as recruits from single player with the single player mechanics. And definitely remove the pay to win ***.
Hmmm... the intention sounds good: "Changing the concept enough so that it can be appealing and fresh." Wonder how it'll actually turn out in the coming years.
This is such a Western way of thinking.
"It is popular, therefor we must make as many installments/spinoffs as we can in a small amount of time to capitalize off-of it!"
It's a shame. AC was one of the few Ubisoft games I enjoyed playing, but knowing that it'll be like the next COD I can tell you I am officially out. Unfortunately there will be too many raving fanboys who will flock to the new installment as soon as it is out *coughcodcough*
RiP AC franchise AKA "The ubisofts COD"
This is the most easy way to make the consumer lose interest in a franchise.... Just Milking it... -.- too bad
After ACIII...... I'm done with the series.
Alright this is getting ridiculous ya gonna kill the series if ya rush it jeez Ubisoft the heck your thinking -.-
-_- ... seriously ubi. i love you but take a damn break
While I love assassins creed, it should not be a yearly franchise. After brotherhood, it started going down hill and they need to take at least 3 years before they even try to release one after IV
Ubisoft has officially sequel'd my favorite franchise to death. I no longer respect Ubisoft. They've become too much like Activision.
This is the action/adventure version of call of duty. Thank god for gamefly and sony!!
You say "next year's title" like it's a sure thing.
welp they pretty much are killing the hell out of this series
Yeah. Just beat that thing to death. There you go.
To be honest I actually really like this series. AC3 was fantastic (aside from the bugs). I also seem to be the only one who's really looking forward to 4. It's certainly possible that by the end of the next game I'll have my fill (I was certainly feeling fatigue with the AC2 sequels), but I really enjoy the over arching storylines between games and am excited to see what happens next.
Let me guess they are taking about ACIV the next Vita AC and ACV
There are enough Assassin's Creed games already. Can't you put one of those teams to work on a new Prince of Persia? **** dam***
Hopefully this means more play test time to get out all those plethora of bugs; AC III was horrifically plagued with bugs.
