Yearly AC's are not bad as long as they are fresh and and original. I hope they continue to make a new Assassin's Creed every year!

Theres a rumor(well its pretty much confirmed) that there will be a season pass for AC3. If that happens every year, then thats just ridiculous. It's hard to justify spending $80 minimum on yearly releases on a franchise when there are PS2 JRPGs out there that offer more content for a fraction of the price.

Even though I love AC... I hope they take a break after 3

Come up with new settings, new characters, and new gameplays that fit those settings

The 2012 story fits there yearly releases now... but I want them to take a break, before the games become stale

You need to make new variety, and coming up with those ideas take time

AC3 is refreshing... i don't want the next one to be a small update to 3, but rather a new experience

I highly agree. I just hope that they wrap up Desmonds story.

What about an ending?

"Oh, we'll just make an ending when the publisher says that we're not pulling in the profits we desire, so we'll cut the series loose."

I don't want a video game to be like an ongoing comic, such as Batman. I desire closure.

Even though I love ass creed and has been there since the begging, I gotta say time to take a break im all ass creed out I dont even anticipate this one, I hope ubi lets it rest next year and make a sequel to pop08 finally.

If they can keep it to a standard were it is not detrimental to quality then why not?
