Title should have been 5 reasons Ubisoft should make more money by overextending themselve and gimping their launches. What was the reason for this article anyways? As if it explained to us anything we don't know arleady, lol!

Agreed itchy.

I don't think any game should really have annual releases, because there's not enough time to really bring evolution to the franchise within a year, unless the game is being made by multiple teams and even then it's rare and brings up the point that these 3+ teams all making one game, could have each released a new IP instead.

In the case of Assassin's Creed I think what IGN said is by far the best route for them. Have an Assassin's Creed game then rotate with a Pirate's Creed game each year. It puts each game on a two year cycle, allows the developer to still keep a strong following since both were well liked, and gives the games enough time to truly grow with each iteration.

I expect this gen to go on until 2020, and that would be 8 Assassin's Creed games all on one generation of consoles. That's ridiculous. Whereas the AC / PC would be 4 game each for the generation, still a lot, but not as bad.

Does not benefit the gamer if it comes out yearly. Only sports games make sense. I need the new roster every year and if they only did a update then the same exploits would still be used in the sports game.

Well I think sports games make even less sense considering a few tweeks and a new roster.
All the devs need to do is patch in any new tweeks and gameplay and update the rosters , EaSports also updates the rosters on their games regularly.

They could sell it as $20 DLC package but they know that they can get away with selling a whole new game.

I owned NHL13 I skipped buying NHL14 and for some reason my game became unplayable. So I bought NHL15 and there is very little difference between 13 and 15 other then interviews in be a pro mode and a new fighting engine. Everything else is just a fresh coat of paint.
No one can tell me that they couldn't have patched these changes in, the game still runs on the same engine.

That's what people don't understand. Assassin's Creed isn't made by one developer. They have 3 to 4 teams working on different Creed. Each game has been up to 2 to 3 years to make. Unity took them 4 years to make. I don't see what the problem is for annual release. Its just like a tv series. You wait next year for the next season. I beat assassin's creed in about 2 weeks and a year later is a good time for a next one.

I can understand a annual release would be stupid for 1 developer but when you got 3 to 4 different teams annual is fine. People can complain as much as they want but from sales I can see more people want Annual Release for Creed games.

I could easily find more than 5 reasons why AC shouldn't have annual releases...

It's a single player game. Unlike multiplayer games like COD, these games aren't going to last more than a little over a year.

That said, released finished games, Ubisoft.

this was the reason, why ac unity was full of bugs. so except the next one to be full of it.
