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.
Assassin's Creed used to be favorite series, but now it's just an eye-sore. Ubisoft needs to chill out with these back-to-back releases.
NO!!! we are done we don't want anymore AC games for a while
when i heard they said after ac3 they were going to be done with games every year I thought they going to have more than a year between releases not just more than a year to develop them
Does one of them maybe have a female Assassin lead? And is NOT on a handheld system? Pretty please!
Don't get me wrong, I love this series (I'm the only one out of me and my older brother actually), but if they keep shooting out games one after another after another every year, people are going to get sick of it after a while. They shouldn't do like Square Enix with Kingdom Hearts and make us wait 8 years for a proper continuation, but make people wait for at least 2 3 years at the most. Don't beat a great game series like this to death for the sake of money.
I honestly couldn't be any more bored w/ the AC series than I am at this current moment. Three new titles? Give the series a rest -
Oh, hello Assassin's Creed. Still whoring yourself I see...
I'm ok with this. I myself really enjoyed 3 & am excited for 4. If they are given enough time with each game then we really don't have anything to worry about.
I like annual releases. It's nice to know you get a pretty good game every year.
your move, EA.
Please, just stop...
Yeah, was never a really big fan of the AC franchise, although this new one does seem interesting. Probably wont buy it until it drops in price though.
Thats cool, the games always turn out great.
Wow. Pretty cool. Not a fan of the yearly release cycle for game, but if they've already been working on it for years, count me in.
Since when is one release a calendar year too much? The Assassins Creed series is an excellent series and has successfully created compelling stories and gameplay with each title. I'm really thankful they have annual releases especially since there are so many places and characters to visit historically.
Ubisoft, keep the titles coming. You have my support.
