Why 'Assassin's Creed 4' will save the franchise

"Assassin's Creed 4" has just been confirmed from Ubisoft, and it looks like "AC IV" will be the next installment in the series, not "AC III.2."

With the game scheduled to be released sometime during spring of 2014, it looks like this will indeed be the next iteration in the series, which is a saving grace to report.

While they are all the same series, it is not the same with each installment. As painful and costly as this may have been for Ubisoft to say no more with "Assassin's Creed III," it will end up serving the franchise very well in the long run. (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Next-Gen, PS4, Xbox One)

I didn't realise Assassin's Creed needed saving?! :/

it dosent need saving it sold a ton. I just want it to better than ACIII and more like ACII.

Sales does not equal quality. In ACIII's case, that's a perfect example.

I disagree. The setting is brilliant, the protagonist isnt. Why not choose a pirate from a time period shortly before or at some point prior to change events leading up to AC3. U can use ur ship as ur home, recruit assassin pirates and travel from america to europe and help build the new country. It highlights the strength of AC3 and what better protagonist than an assassin fearsome pirate. It could jntersect with AC3 story. And it can begin to fix some of the problems like combat and leveling ur character.

Imagine a next gen AC game set on the high seas. It would be awesome. U go from a lowly pirate to swashbucler of the seas, controlling the Atlantic. There can be cities in America, Europe and the Caribbean. And bring in someone who works with each studio that is a proven writer to tie everything together.

That all sounds more like downloadable content ala' gta4. I think they should continue to explore different time frames with ancient china or japan being next in line. with samurais and/or ninjas which are the mark of true assassins.

Why the Assassin's Creed series should die along with Call Of Duty.

ACIV is going to have to do A LOT of things right if it wants to save this franchise. Revelations and ACIII really put this series in the shit hole.
