Is Ubisoft Releasing Too Many Assassin's Creed Games?

8CN: Gamers were hit with a double dose of Assassin's Creed last week with news regarding Unity and Comet (official and unofficial reveals respectively), the next two games in the series. Unity will be headed to next-gen platforms, while Comet will reportedly be released on the Xbox 360 and PS3. While it's still too early to pass any judgment on either title, many have lamented what they feel is a glut of Assassin's Creed games. Some gamers feel that the serious is close to franchise overkill, threatening to destroy the originality that made the initial entry so memorable.

Well according to ubisoft, its what we want so I'm assuming their sales figures for this series is still in good standing... Even though the last assassin's creed I played was part 2.

Assassins Crees Unity needs to offer something fresh. They did a good job with AC4 and the whole pirate thing. But Unity looks like its going back to that AC1 style. I'm not excited for it personally and I'm not buying it, but I'm sure my brother will buy it with his Christmas money, he does it every year.

Exactly. Fix the combat and climbing.
Combat is just boring...and easy.

Oh definitely, but they're still pretty fun. It'd be better for their image, and the fans if they took a year or two break to make some real innovations to their system though. AC needs a revamp

There naval engine is rather impressive how realistic it is.

I think AC could use a break

Bibmiester1450d ago

They could definitely use a break or just keep using a new setting like they did with AC4 to keep it fresh

Eamon1450d ago

AC Unity definitely needs to be as ground breaking as AC2 was. A wholly evolved formula. I see that the control design is supposed to be different with the whole "parkour up" and "parkour down" keys.

AND it needs a much more focus on ASSASSINATION. More in-depth social stealth gameplay or new imaginative ideas to stalk or execute targets.

It can't just be more crowds and more weapons. It needs to be a wholly new product.
