ASSASSIN'S CREED is set to get another instalment next year set in Victorian era London, but some fans are not so keen to see such a quick return for the franchise.
Defiantly for the best. I like the games and all but releasing a new one yearly is just to much.
totally agree, and I would call myself a massive fan of the series.
Ubisoft: ""Wanna a break?! .....have a Kit-Kat""
"Recently there has been a leak of a new Assassin's Creed game. The next-gen sequel to best-selling franchise will be called Assassin's Creed: Kitkat and is a response to screaming voice of fans throughout the world saying they want a break with Assassin's Creed. In recent interview random Ubisoft manager said this: "We cherish our install base like our own parents, we will always do what our fans want that's why we decided to make Assassin's Creed: Kitkat our number one priority. Not only players will be able to play exactly the same thing all over and over again with slightly different flavour, but they will also have the opportunity to order a Kitkat in the same convenient way they could buy a Season Pass, DLC or burn money in any way desired so they would finally stop bitchin' about our top quality products and buy more of them. For customers who are not themselves when hungry we went miles ahead and started developing a Kitkat spin-off called Assassin's Creed: Snickers which will introduce the ground breaking Sneak mechanic in to the genre." Ubisoft also announced new achievement trophy reward giveaway extraordinaire extravaganza bonanza system, which gives player points for each game bought and allows them to exchange it for other very samey games you already have or do not care in particular. The feature Ubisoft is most excited about is the ability to accumulate points by buying the same game multiple times for additional points. What do you think? Comment in the section below."
I also hate auto-correct & the word definitely... I have lost count of the amount of times I've told people "I'll do it defiantly". On topic though with the amount of content it includes the series should release at very least every other year.
I agree. They need to take a break to re-evaluate their core game and improve on it. I wasn't too keen on late 18th century France, I'll feel the same, but moreso, concerning 19th century London. There needs to be a paradigm shift. Assassins creed games would work PERFECT in a WW1 setting, and givin the advancement in technology to that time, it could really change up gameplay. If they HAD to go 19th century it should've been NYC 5 points, al la Gangs of New York.
We'll hear soon in the new interview: "AC Vic has been built from the ground up.New and improved combat,made harder.In addition to a 'dedicated' crouch button,there's a 'dedicated' prone button too.New character is called 'James' or something like that.James will me more brash,charismatic and will have more depth than Ezio.He'll join the Assassins and
Couldn't agree more! I think they need rethink their formula a little bit, with all their current releases they seem to re-apply their same formula. FC, AC, Watchdogs all follow a similar structure. AC is a brilliant title but I think it needs to go back to its routes, be less open world and much more focused on assassination!
thye need to sort out there AI issues and reduce number and things to create smoother game. nobody gives a shit that unity has 10000 people in the square,1000 and it would look full
Don't misunderstand however.Each game takes a 2-3 year cycle.AC U took 4.Though it's still broken.
Very true since they split it up among different studio locations. Every new game that comes out is more complex then the first which means more to break. Plus the dev kits are not the same as the released consoles. While I don't disgree that they need to thoroughly test the games on actual consoles before releasing, I do disagree that being against annual releases out of principle is stupid. The series is good and if different studios can develop for 4 years then stagger releases every year so be it. I'll buy them and play to 100% as I always do. By the way playing Unity on Max details on a R9 290 at [email protected] average. Given the level of detail with the level design, I'm good with that. The only thing I miss is the modern day story involving the gods/ancients
I look forward to the yearly release of an AC game. The leak of Victory was early but they would have announced it by March anyway. I'm sure Unity sold well and I while the vocal minority are beating their drums I don't hear the millions of fans complaining, quite the opposite in fact, most really like Unity. Until people actually stop buying them, Ubisoft will continue to provide customers with an AC game every year. Seven years later and I say we're not there yet.
I'd stand in line ever year for one.I'm a huge fan of AC and i can't get my fill so keep them comeing. More comics,novels and games. If ppl don't want it stop buying them but myself "i want more"
AC3...I was done after that....or at least I thought. AC4 was a lot of fun.....mostly because it wasn't really an AC game. AC:Unity was possibly more boring than AC3.... I'm DONE for a while...No urge to play this series anymore as it currently is.
Once sales drop, they'll put it away for a while like they've done with splinter cell, and until recently rainbow six
Wanna a break? DO NOT BUY IT!
Best to not make the game so they don't waste resources on a game nobody wants. Instead, they can allocate it elsewhere and when people want another AC game, they can start on it. But this is Ubisoft. @Luffy: Obviously people "want" it, but if they milk it with the same amount of polish applied to each game... They're gonna lose fans.
You assume that nobody wants it but if the game shows significant sales number UbiSoft was correct to milk that franchise. It all depends on the consumer. If UbiSoft sees no profit in releasing this franchise every year they just add another number to a different franchise of theirs.
I'm not interested in 19th century London. It should really be WW1 Germany / Europe. Despite the best efforts of the Assassins, The Templars assassinate Franz Ferdinand, sparking World War 1. The possibilities for new gameplay could revolutionize the series. They shouldn't fear technology. AC would still be applicable and relevant, even in a WW2 setting. Anything past 1945 gets iffy for me
This is all about the vocal minority complaining loudly that a new detailed game has bugs. What new game of this scale doesn't? Heck I remember back to the original playstation games having bugs too and those couldn't be patched. People should compare sales numbers to the number of complainers and see how big the issues really are. While I'll gladly take a free Far Cry 4 for the season pass from Ubi, I feel bad because I'm most of the way through Unity on PC and really haven't had but one or two random bugs.
Sure, we can take a break, but they'll still release a broken game every year.
Exactly. Unbisoft have stated in the past that the series was initially annualised because the fans were calling for it. Now they've come to expect it. While it still sells well it will continue to be released yearly.
Well said Luis Tired of these loud mouths that think everyone should feel the same way or have the nerve to speak for every gamer. No one is forcing you dweebs to buy the game every year! The same goes for any series that is annualized, cod, bf, Madden, etc. I haven't bought an ac game since brotherhood, maybe you loud mouths should try something similar, instead of talking out your necks on forums. These companies respect the dollar, not your worthless online opinions.
Ubisoft responds: "You want Assassin's Creed: Break? Sure, we can make that game too."
I'm still laughing! thx man
So good xD
It just doesn't sit right with me to have such a huge game with yearly iterations. If you were to play the whole game with all the side missions you'd probably only be done with it a short time before the next game is released. That's just milking the franchise to death.
Well, UbiSoft got many studios working for them. The engine is finished. They can use that and just concentrate on creating a new map, new story and characters and maybe some new little things for gameplay. They don't need to develop everything from gound up.
I know that and totally get it. To be able to have yearly releases they need to be able to re-use assets. I'm talking about from the point of view of the consumer.
If you want a break, wait for the game to Drop to $20 and pick it up then. If no one truly wants it, you'll see that price tag drop a lot quicker than normal.
Spot on! The consumer decides if UbiSoft is doing the right thing with annual releases. They wouldn't do it if sales were horrible and their would be no profit at all :D
people act like this game doesn't work or something , i've played most of it and its been fine , not the best AC game i've ever played but not bad either . Some years are better than others , i look forward to running around in a AC game every fall .
Your not alone and the act like there all broke everytime. New AC,New Consule.......hmmm going be problems unforseen. Seems like a no brainer but hey ppl need something to complain about.
I dont need a break. Why not its free right ?. After unity i will not buy one of their fails again. Screw you
Its not their being forced to buy it. I've notice this a lot lately, ppl prefer someone else making decisions for them.
Ding ding ding! It's unbelievable when you read the comments, they act like somebody is forcing them to support this practice, to buy these games. Bet they are the same people who rely on game reviews to tell them they'll like the game, instead of checking out YouTube or other various ways to get REAL game info, not that bias junk they call reviews.
Assasin creed unity is just waste of time , so many glitches .. nothing else. Go for a good game and spend your time hapily
I've lost interest after Assassin's Creed II, but bought III anyway - ended up hardly playing it. Then IV had the pirates theme going for it, so I had to have that - never finished it. I passed over Unity completely and I will over the next.
I dont see it selling well on xbone since a lot of them got the bundle with two games that were essentially the same. That would be 3 assassins games in one year. I dont see even the most avid AC fans playing all three
I only played an hour of Black Flag and not even bothered with the latest two games that have just come out. It's just got a bit too much now for me. I might get back into it sooner rather than later but 2015 there's going to be some amazing games keeping me busy!
I would definitely play Black Flag. I have owned it for a year but because of the amount of AC games that come out, just playing it now and I am loving it. Great story, collectibles are in natural places, user inferface is nice and clean, side missions are a lot of fun. Overall it is the best AC and one of my fav gamse in a long time. I had Unity on day one and it is still in wrapping til it is fixed and im done Black flag.
I think it would be for the best, if they stopped for at least 2 years people would appreciate it more.
So Victory is to blame for fast release of that broken Unity?
Nope. Made by two different teams in Ubisoft.
Yeah I wouldn't mind a break from AC. But Victory's setting is something I have been wanting from AC for a while. So I hope Victory still comes out next year.
If people keep buying them, they'll keep making them. In fact, I'll probably buy this one too. Yes, I'm someone that really liked Unity and I'm craving more! MORE!
There are a lot of us that look forward to and buy the yearly AC game. I doubt that'll change anytime soon as most fans actually like Unity, myself included.
I'm getting used to annual releases of AC games but holy hell man, do they really have to announce it this soon? Unity's just out, and I haven't even finished the game yet. Then comes a new AC game announcement/leak. They might as well announce the next game on the back cover of their AC game boxes from now on. The dissatisfaction of AC Unity customers regarding the game's technical problems didn't even cool down yet. If it's Ubisoft's way of saying "We'll make it right with the next game" they should know that gamers have almost zero trust towards them after the technical catastrophes of WD and AC Unity. WD was virtually unplayable due to an unsolvable case of stuttering on PC, and AC Unity's virtually unplayable on consoles with its pathetically low frame rate, with the most powerful PCs struggling to run the game at a reasonable fps. The sad thing is that those are GREAT games. I'm sorry but as much as I love AC games, I'm starting to feel like they're not worth going through all the technical difficulties just to play the bloody game. Ubisoft seriously need to get their act together in terms of their games' performance. Far Cry 4 runs good enough on consoles (even better on PS4) so here's hoping that it'll be a fresh start for them.
make first an assassins creed game set in japan/china then do a break fans wants japan/china..they are asking you for years so why not doing it ? i dont want another AC2--->UNITY--->VICTORY crap give me ninja and samurai give me noodles and sake FFS that fanboy ART designs where awesome...the potential is there UBI
I just started it yesterday and it looks like a pretty good game to me. Graphics are incredible and everyone knows the fluid AC Gameplay. I took a break tho too.
We'll hear soon in the new interview: "AC Vic has been built from the ground up.New and improved combat,made harder.In addition to a 'dedicated' crouch button,there's a 'dedicated' prone button too.New character is called 'James' or something like that.James will me more brash,charismatic and will have more depth than Ezio.He'll join the Assassins in search for revenge.His arch nemesis Shay Patrick Cormac who... etc." We'll also hear promises: "AC Vic will not be UNOPTIMIZED for PC or consoles.It'll have better crowd mechanics,train combat,carriage races etc...We're targeting 1080P 60 FPS and so much more.We'r getting more used to making games.Next year we'll be confident enough to ship 4+ AC games for current gen consoles.And 2+ for old gen consoles.We realized that there are still fans of old gen consoles who want more and more AC games frequently.So we'd like to support them."
No one forces you to buy it every year. I hope that still occur every year and I will definitely buy it. For Assassins Creed I will always have money.
Good that the core AC fans are taking action. If Ubisoft does not listen and do release this AC Victory, I urge everyone to BOYCOTT the game until we get a stable game. this is at the least.
You can buy the game at anytime? You don't have to buy the game when it comes out. You can buy the next game in 2 or 3 years if you want.
Assassin's Creed's greatest strength and source of it's longevity has been it's willingness to change, seriously even when comparing 4 and Unity changes are obvious. What Ubisoft has to stop doing is *not adding ambient music *releasing more than a game a year *even mentioning Assassin's Creed before E3 *a marketing blitz *for the love of god, no more trailers, 3 max *buggy launches, if the engine is broke, fix it
