Which Needs A Year Off More: Assassin's Creed Or Call Of Duty?

Activision and Ubisoft have confirmed new Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed games, but which series could use a break? Which needs extra time to retool? (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

The companies behind both franchises are going to run them both right into the ground.

Either way...if I had to be one, the choice is EASY

Assassin's Creed! /s

But yeah, in all seriousness...BOTH -_-

uh heres the best answer possible, hows about both take a 5 year break, and ubisoft makes a prince of persia,rainbow 6,and beyond good and evil sequel, and activision makes some new ips.

AC3 was amazing, but Black Ops 2 online play was an INDUSTRY REVOLUTION. My opinion is COD should ride BO2 one more year, and just release new map packs and guns for an extra year. This was the release we've been waiting for, why not milk it and make it that much more amazing for another year?

Assassins Creed always tells a great story, so I welcome a new release every year.

Uh....how was it a revolution? It's was the exact same as BO1 and mw3 set ....12 years from now....

Assassin's Creed.

The Call of Duty franchise has no possible way of redeeming itself. The talented developers who did 1, 2, 4, and MW2 are gone now. So, there is no hope.

I agree. The AC series needs to be revolutionized, and fast. Call of Duty, as you stated, is gonna be the same game no matter what so may as well keep dropping em every year.

i think call of duty can redeem itself, but they really need to get its crap together and fix what so many people have issues with, give it a rest for a year or 2 and return with a better engine/stories. assassins creed on the other hand continues to be excellent games because they atleast try to fix issues each year.

the sad thing is the dev teams do work on these cod games for 2 years and dont change anything. AC3 was great and with a lot of changes made to the game. they should just all the bad things about it and improve upon it. They could keep cod going with dlc. However, they would never take a year off

I enjoy Call of duty every year and get hours upon hours of enjoyment, well worth the $60

AC3's ending was complete crap. AC needs saving. Who cares about CoD. Everyone will keep buying.

Both. Call of Duty's mediocrity got old two titles back, and I don't want to see Assassin's Creed die in the name of 'milking it'.

Actually, sod CoD. Save Assassin's Creed and let Activision's shooter kill itself off.
