The lights are on
A graphic showing logos for some unannounced Ubisoft games has leaked to the Internet, revealing a couple of new Assassin's Creed games and more.
The graphic (above), which was posted on A9VG and found by NeoGAF, shows titles and logos for a number of previously unknown Ubisoft projects, including Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD (which we assume is a console port of the handheld game), Assassin's Creed: Pirates, Rayman: Fiesta Run, Autodance II, Endwar Online, Rabbids: Big Bang, and Valiant Hearts: The Great War.
The games are supposedly set to be announced at Ubisoft's upcoming Digital Day event, meaning they are likely downloadable, mobile, or free-to-play titles.
Our Take:More Assassin's Creed. It never seems to end. While it's still one of gaming's premier frachises (and I'm honestly very excited to play as a pirate in Black Flag), I think Ubisoft is really running a risk of burning out this franchise. Assassin's Creed games just don't feel like an event anymore. Contrast this to the hubbub surrounding the upcoming release of Grand Theft Auto V. While gamers always clamor for more, sometimes it's better to play hard to get, especially with your biggest franchises. However, I will contradict myself a bit when I say that I hope the Liberation HD port is real; it's a good game not enough people got a chance to play.

AC is held up by its story driven content. The game's flair and interesting gameplay died a few years ago. Hell you don't even assassinate targets like in the older ones anymore!
I still love the series, but I've stopped trying to keep up with the AC series as of recent. I own ever console release in the franchise, but am still only halfway through brotherhood as to avoid burnout.
I'd actually really dig a Liberation HD port to PS3 or something, it always looked like an intriguing enough game with an interesting protagonist. Having it expanded to non-Vita systems would help it a lot. What I'm most disappointed about is the fact that they didn't bother making Aveline AC IV's new heroine. Huh, maybe they were too afraid of sexist gamers not playing it or something. In any case, short of the moderate chance of Liberation HD, I'm sure the AC Pirates game is just some cheap Facebook or Ios game that's not a full one anyway. Anyone know what happened to that Legacy title? Enough rambling for now.
Still waiting on AC4 on PS4.
How about waiting at least a few months after ACIV before revealing a new title? Or, better yet, wait a few years between between them?
Remember how much better ACII was than AC1 when it spent 2 years in development? Ubi sure doesn't :/
idk what to say about this -_-
In my opinion, they burnt out their franchise with Revelations. 3 was better, but still meh. I have no intention of buying Black Flag for awhile. Also, the naval combat was the worst part of 3...
I hope AC: Liberation HD turns out to be real. I never played it on Vita but I would buy it instantly for PS3.
I love Assassin's Creed, and I'll probably get ACIV on Black Friday(in 2014) when I get my PS4, but its really becoming the Call of Duty of open world games. Too many, too soon, too much of the same. The sea is cool and all, but I want to play as an Assassin, not a pirate. I want stealth, political intrigue, alien artifacts, hidden blades, and calling down the Brotherhood, not shark spearing and treasure hunting. Unless they can come up with some good ASSASSIN related innovations, like Brotherhood letting you become the Master and call in recruits, it will never feel fresh again.
Definitely sounds like IOS device games.
I hope Rayman: Fiesta Run is a endless runner.
They make it hard for those who might've missed a game and need to catch up.
Maybe Rayman: Fiesta Run is a sequel of Jungle Run.
I'm a big AC fan and i really want to play liberation on my console
