The Assassin's Creed series may soon finally see a game set in Japan, according to a recent fan discovery.
I think they need to retire this franchise... either that or they give the next game a 2 year development window and rework the mechanics. I've not been interested in the series since AC3 bored me to tears. Just my opinion... although a Japanese theme would be cool, it's just re-skinned.
reading the title reminded me directly of Onimusha 3. What an amazing game that was.
I feel the same way. The last time I was interested in Assassins Creed was when III came out. The story's been extremely weak since then and I also miss the gameplay style of the Ezio trilogy!
I don't think they need to retire the franchise, but they need to create an end goal with the story, AND.. They should make this game every 2 years, instead of every year. That way, they have more time for writing and more time to fix their crap before they release.. I am a HUGE assassins creed fan but was SOOO disappointed with AC Unity. It's so bad, I'm not even going to play it (too many glitches and lag issues). Black Flag was my favorite. The writing was great, and had a bunch of stuff that was new and awesome! As for a AC in Japan, that would be cool I guess. Just hope the writing does A, suck. B, game has little to no glitches. C, isn't crap..
Well, maybe they shouldn't stop the series as obviously it has a huge fan base. Like we both say, I think they should make it every couple of years. Id rather wait longer knowing something was well made and created with more care and attention. I enjoyed the series up until AC3... I wish more developers worked like Kojima and others who try and make perfection every single time, no matter how long it takes. IF they do set it in Japan and it comes out with a good story and minimal bugs then I'll more than likely buy it. I do think they need to update their mechanics though...IMO :)
Assassins Creed franchise is the best.
No one forces you to play Assassins Creed. Why withdraw it because you do not like yourself? Do not worry as there are many who want to play Assassins Creed. I personally want to play it every year.
Was about to post the same comment. :)
Yeah, I hope this is true. So many of us have been asking for this for so long. It would be an amazing setting for an Assassin's Creed game.
Assassin's Creed Tenchu edition? That would certainly revive my excitement for the series.
As long as the time and effort is put. Quality Control Ubi! Do not release a broken game. Again
Assassin's Creed should go on a long holiday to never land.
If it's set in Japan with ninja and samurai and all that you can count me in. It would mark the first AC I buy. Vita please, as always...
I just started playing Unity, first AC game I have ever played...
if true...ABOUT GOD DAM TIME !!! ubisoft listening gamers...thats new...they will make sh!tload of money if they do AC in japan.. since Ac2 gamers asked japan or china
it'd be good if they actually progress the story. i actually got interested with what could happen after ac 3's ending but nope...nothing of interest since. i'm not sure if i completely understand why they're trying to find a sage. or whatever the guy they're looking for is called.
As far as they've told, the Templars are looking for Sages in order to sequence the First Civilization genome. I'm not sure they said this in the games, but they probably want the DNA to fully control the Pieces of Eden, which they'll use to force Humanity into world peace.
Actually I have a feeling they'll be heading to Cairo, Egypt. AC Rogue had a dropped employee log in Abstergo talking about the location, and at the end of Dead Kings it references Cairo.
This could be interesting and good since a new Tenchu is nowhere in sight :(
A new game in the franchise may release every year, but these games typically have been in development almost congruently with other AC games after development closes... AC3 was in development for 4 years. Ubisoft Montreal started working on that as soon as AC2 launched while other AC games go into preproduction at other UbiSoft studios around the world. AC Victory the next one launching this year started Development over at UbiSoft Sofia/Quebec shortly after AC3 launched, at the same time Ubi Montreal started working on AC Unity. When Revelations launched UbiSoft Montpellier was crafting away at what would soon be AC4 black flag. This franchise has pretty long Dev cycles but the games generally share a common engine and most of them are in R&D phases months before another is set to release. Its part of the benefit of having 15 studios working in tandem. On your most popular IP... And even within those 15 studios they each have multiple tier development teams working on core concepts for the next game and New IPs. UbiSoft Montreal released AC Unity and Watch_Dogs in 2014... UniSoft Quebec Released AC Rogue last year and will be releasing AC Victory with Sofia as lead this year. And both of those games, (AC:Rogue and AC:Victory) were being developed at the same time about 3 years ago. They don't need longer development time what they need is far more QA testing and a serious drop in frequency in the market. There are 13 games in the franchise that have released if you count the one on Vita PSP and DS. And the 14th game launches this year, its really Ubisofts biggest IP since most of those games average 12 million units life time sales. We just need less. 1 game every 2 -3 years the break up the franchise fatigue with bold fresh ideas that really liven up the franchise. I loved AC2 and while it was a slow burn, I enjoyed AC3, I passed on Rogue, AC4 and AC:Unity... And I'll likely pass on AC:Victory this year as well and will likely jump back in with 2016's release. The story is awesome but I just do the summary explanation of the entire franchise every year with the YouTube video.
