Assassin’s Creed IV is being developed across seven different studios – here’s how

EDGE - Creation of the singleplayer missions in Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is being split between lead developer Ubisoft Montreal and supported by studios in Kiev, Quebec and Singapore. Ubisoft’s Sofia outfit is creating the modern day elements of the game, and two more studios in Annecy and Bucharest are handling multiplayer. (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

That is a lot of people for just one game I really hope it is worth it.

I wonder which studios are making which console version.

Because that went -really- well for Gearbox when it split development between two-three studios on Colonial Marines.

It's probably gonna be like where you have 1/5th of missions that doesn't suck, because the rest is made by the other devs, who have been scratching their head on how to deliver what the publisher wants.

As much as I want to look forward to this title after purchasing every previous AC on day 1 I just can't. Ubi are full of empty promises. There games are so over hyped now days even with WATCH DOGS it just oozes assassins creed even the visual effects with on screen text.

The AC4 title needs to be exceptionally well polished after previous gamed and also more main story

and for gods sake make combat a challenge

I agree with the combat, AC1 was actually a bit of a challenge.
The rest of the games were just way too easy to kill squad after squad.

In order to have yearly releases, you need more than one studio. Call of Duty has around 3 devs work aroud different Cod projects. Assassins creed needs all those devs, it's incredible on what teamwork can do!
