Assassin’s Creed is a bit of a divisive franchise. To some the name will evoke fond images of free running and compelling time travel conspiracy tales, to others – images of disappointment and another overly milked cash cow.
It’s been two years since the initial spinoff title – Brotherhood’s release and now an annual Assassin’s Creed game, like a new COD or FIFA – has become a bit of a given. This meant that absolutely no one was surprised when an invitation for an Assassin’s Creed reveal event appeared in the hands of the press last week. What was unexpected however, was that the event would actually be the announcement of a full blown numbered Assassin’s Creed sequel – and a completely open world sequel at that.
