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.

That's why R* has found such success in their franchises, they're great, but the next doesn't come out until another 2 or 3 years.
Dude, I think AC burnt out a long time ago.
AC3 was actually a bit of a disappointment for me. Connor is emotionless and I didn't like his character. Desmond was a joke.
Releasing HD remakes of the portable AC games is a good idea.
Assassins Creed I wont buy
What? do we get again a new Assassins Creed game. Damn come on AC IV is not even released and they already announce a new AC game for us to play. Ubisoft what are you doing killing Assassins Creed.
I like the idea of more Assassin's Creed and the future of the franchise but if Ubisoft is going to pump out new sequels every year and in a way milk the franchise, it's going to reach fatigue very quickly
AC: Liberation has been OK so far. I hope Assassin's Creed: Pirates will be a PS Vita game, the Vita needs more games like these (and Killzone: Mercenary!). The AC series is (obviously) leading up to a modern age "grand finale", so why the hate?
This series is going to burn out really quickly if they don't slow down production of this franchise. Releasing a HD remake of Liberation on console is a great idea though.
Wow, more AC? I'm curious to see how Black Flag will be on next-gen.
I have all the AC games and still find AC2 to be my favorite. I have played it through eight times. Love the music and the story. AC3 was okay. Connor was a jerk, as were most of the characters in AC3.
