"The tragedy is that Ubisoft and Ivory Tower didn't know when to stop"

Sounds a lot like an Assassin's Creed game that fell, vomiting, out of the gates just a few weeks ago.

The whole "Ubisoft game" template is now beyond a joke, now stacked with microtransactions, even more invasive Uplay bullshit. This is production line game design where good ideas go to die (or get transformed into bloated, inconsistent, unsatisfying experiences).

Even the generic revenge storyline is being shoved straight into games it has no business being in!

Would Forza Horizon 2 have been better if Ben murdered your father? Would BurnOut Paradise be better if you had to avenge your brother? NO. It's like Ubisoft are running on a weird template that makes all their open-world games bleed into each other.
