They better not end it before an AC game completely set in Modern Times & Maybe Future.

Snookies121023d ago

I'd love to see an AC game set in the future for once. That would be freaking awesome.

crxss1023d ago

Plot twist: it's watch dogs.

Haha that'd be so ridiculous

spicelicka1023d ago

@crXss

lol that would be awesome!

Honestly the Desmond stuff has hindered the progression of the series. That's one reason I really liked AC Liberation. It was 99% about the history and next to nothing about the scifi minus revealing the deeper truths to Aveline's tale.

I agree, I've found the present day segments mostly boring.

Just yesterday I went back to Revelations as I remembered I hadn't finished everything. It only took 5 minutes to remember why. Those stupid block stacking segments are dull and not very challenging. They should have just made cut scenes if they wanted me to listen to their narrative, I'm not going to slog through crappy mini games.

Kidmyst1023d ago

@NukaCola
totally agree, If I wasn't going for the Plat I would have skipped the block sequences all together. Didn't miss them on Liberation. I did like the Desmond scenes retrieving the items in modern day and battling the security guards and climbing towers and such.

this is like they saying+

"ok, we admit that we are milking the franchise but don't worry, once the sales faltered, we'll end it"

Mr_Pinky1023d ago

Well we could of had that if they wern't so greedy and decided to milk this for every last drop

I still believe that Watch Dogs in it's early days was the concept for AC3 before they decided to stretch the series out longer. Replace Aidan with Desmond, give him a modern Assassin look and there you go...the true AC3.

I mean they've totally ditched the present story in the AC games and yet they are still using Desmonds ancestors. Seriously AC4 should of been a spin off like Brotherhood.

-Mezzo-1023d ago

Agreed, as someone who has played & beaten all the AC games, i can tell you that after the first AC game with Altair, they went in a completely new direction.

It does not even feel like an Assassins Creed game anymore, they went in a new direction stretch it into something completely different in order to get the cash rolling.

xGrunty1023d ago

I've been saying this for so long now. Its crazy to think otherwise.

Mr_Pinky1023d ago (Edited 1023d ago )

@-Mezzo-

Exactly

I don't see how a game about stealth and hunting people down from the shadows can get a main game where most of the game is about naval combat

It's like they didn't want to waste the Anvil engine they created for naval battles and turned it into AC4. I mean a pirate game...come on it should of been a new IP, add some RPG elements and it could of been like the Pirates of the Caribbean game that was cancelled by Disney. They would have a brand new exciting IP on their hands, it's not like Pirate games are over done these days. I mean AC4: Black Flags...giving a main title game a sub title, I really feel like they are desperate now.

CrossingEden1023d ago

Watch dogs has been in development for years by a completely different team but yes keep living in your delusions..

@CrossingEden

Jeez don't be such a dick about it

"Watch dogs has been in development for years"

"Years"?

WatchDogs began development in 2009 and AC2 came out in 2009. So it's not like WatchDogs began years before AC.

Before AC2 came out they mentioned how it would be a trilogy. A year later Brotherhood happened, it's not so "deluded" to think that after the sales of AC2 they decided to milk it and turn AC3s concept "WatchDogs", which was in early development and started the same year, into Watch Dogs. Ubisoft have a habbit of starting projects before the next game comes out.

PSVita1023d ago

I can't wait for the 30 disk AC box set in a few years lol

solidjun51023d ago

@CrossingEden keep living as an immature brat.

Irishguy951023d ago

Coulda swore it was confirmed that's exactly what Watch Dogs was.

No doubt it has an end, just like MGS4 was the end game...

Then they'll start inserting prequels much to everyones delight yet these people will bleat about how the industry lacks innovation and its sequel after sequel. Yet prequels are perfectly acceptable practice, go figure.

Murad1023d ago

But the difference is that MGS4 truly did end, it wasn't a hoax in a manner of speaking. Solid Snake has finally gotten a chance to rest in piece. Also, many of the fans of MGS, just like myself, truly want to know about what happened during Big Boss's time. What it would have been in HD and all that and the emotions he got and so on. I mean, sure, we know the general story, but the details are what makes a true impact.

caseh1023d ago

@murad

I get what you're saying but we had Peace Walker which effectively done that, then we get MGS5.Ii mean to say, will that be it or are we gonna get even more.

I'm faily certain most of Boss' backstory was filed in the MGS Database outside of the games.

MGS should just be put to bed, its story spanned across 3 decades and I for one was happy with Snake's final salute.

Would be nice to see Kojima put his talents into something else, this is the guy who gave us Snatcher and Policenauts yet he was getting hate mail and stuff for not continuing MGS, meh wtf.

beebap1023d ago

I Would like to c a game or part of game about the boss. Possibly her training snake.As someone would only got into metal gear solid series at three I glad to c how big boss becomes bad guy but would love to c the boss get more attention as she possibly the best soldier training big boss and is his mentor.Also brillant to have strong female character has main.

3-4-51023d ago

I used to really like this series.

They need to end it ASAP, and then show us they can actually make more than 1 game.

They've essentially been making the same game since AC2 outside of the cool multiplayer they added.

Scatpants1023d ago

They seem to add more stuff than your usual sequel. AC3 had the Homestead, Trading, and naval Battles. AC4 seems to be doing an open world with deeper naval battles. I didn't really like 3 all that much, but at least they are offering something new with each one. They could have just given a new setting and been done with it.

elhebbo161023d ago

WW2 would be the farthest AC should go. no more than that.

darkesthour41023d ago

I was just thinking the same thing.

HammadTheBeast1023d ago

@Mezzo

Watch Dogs is what I'd assume the wanted.

Your next closest bet would be Infamous Second Son, with powers instead of the whole assassination business.

yeahokchief1023d ago

SPACE. THE FINAL FRONTIER.

TO BOLDLY GO WHERE NO ASSASSIN HAS GONE BEFORE.

Yes, the end is when it stops making them money.

-Mezzo-1023d ago (Edited 1023d ago )

Yeah, that's exactly what everyone kept on saying about COD, now look at Activision pointing fingers at the Next-Gen Console transition.

Everything Comes To An End, It's A Fact Of Life.

richierich1023d ago

@Mezzo I don't think everything comes to an end have you ever heard of Pokémon games

chobit_A5HL3Y1023d ago

pokemon games haven't been around forever. they've just been around for a long time. there's a difference.

admiralvic1023d ago

@ richierich

Replace Pokemon with Final Fantasy and you'll have a point. =P

schlanz1023d ago

They will have an ending to the story, sure, but that definitely doesn't mean the end of Assassin's Creed.

Kydawg1023d ago

I've always thought there should be an AC set in modern times but it might be hard to do. Instead of a horse you drive a car? I dunno how they would pull it off but it would be awesome if they did.

360ICE1023d ago (Edited 1023d ago )

Yup.

"we’ve always envisioned an ending to the story of Desmond Miles in which Desmond makes gradually less revenue so that he eventually can’t turn a profit."

GamingManiac1023d ago

I just want to see a feudal Japan setting before they end it!

AlphaCentyros1023d ago (Edited 1023d ago )

Yes that would be very nice! Or one in Ancient Egypt, surely they can figure something out with ancient gods, and artifacts hidden in tombs.

These artworks have got me really stoked about a setting in China as well: http://n4g.com/news/1150174...

Let's just hope that Ubisoft isn't stubborn/ignorant and that they won't finish the series without one of those amazing settings, because from now on I'm just gonna skip every European/Pirate Assassin's Creed.
