Assassin’s Creed: Victory and the Issue with Oversaturation

Ray Porreca of Entertainment Buddha writes: "It is in the idea that Ubisoft, seemingly with blatant disregard to their numerous hiccups in 2014 (from both Assassin’s Creed titles and Watch Dogs), is already hard at work on a new Assassin’s Creed title that is genuinely concerning, not the unremarkable setting of the game."

Yeah the yearly releases are getting brutal, and it doesn't help the franchise when the latest entry was a buggy mess at launch.

Yep. I enjoy Assassin's Creed, but I've taken to just picking them up every other year or so. Played 1&2, played Brotherhood, skipped Revelations, couldn't get into Liberation, skipped 3, loved 4, will skip Unity, might pick up the London one. There's just too many of them in my opinion and clearly the quality is suffering by them rushing the titles out every year.

Well, two this year, Rogue and Unity.
Hopefully next year they can squeeze in four or five.

lol, yah why not... heck why not just have every studio at Ubisoft make Assassins Creed games /s

The issue is a bit more than just over saturation on Ubisoft's part. This year they pushed out two titles. The Current Gen iterations was obviously rushed. The released a product riddled with bugs. The last count was over 300. What about dignity in your work? If they can produce a solid Assassin Creed game every year more power to them, but obviously, their release standards are in freefall.

I know I'm supposed to dislike AC: Unity, but the fact is I can't stop playing it. Even with all the bugs I'm still having a great time. Now, will I pick up next year's sequel? I think so, and this is from someone that had quit playing these games after ACII. To me, Unity went back to basics and fixed some issues along the way (the downward parkour button makes the series way more playable) and has a ton of things to do in it ensuring I won't be bored anytime soon.

Last year, when Unity was announce right after Blag Flag, I rolled my eyes so hard someone hear it in the next room.

This year I fear I've strained my ocular nerve.

I think I might start a class action again Ubisoft.

Unity was announced in March, about 5-6 months after black flag and only because the game leaked and Ubisoft confirmed with a trailer a week later

Bathyj1473d ago

Hmm, seemed closer and way too soon. Maybe because this franchise has had about 3 too many games already.

I admit Black Flack was a bright spot, mainly for the naval aspect. The parts that hadnt been flogged to death in Assassins Creed yet.

Wasnt that out in late November when the new consoles released?

It's like this person has no idea that AC games are in development for years by different teams. Hell, a different studio is handling this one.

The issue isn't about games being in development for X years or having any number of development teams on them. They are still being released with frustrating frequency, oversaturating the market and ultimately burning AC fans out.
