During the financial call for investors and analyst related to the latest fiscal quarter Ubisoft's CEO Yves Guillemot announced that the next Assassin's Creed will come in the next fiscal year.
i bought unity and had my saved file get corrupt and was told to restart tried to return it but it was digital never again buying this buggy piece of crap franchise at launch and never buying digital for sure.
Next generation where UBI actually becomes the new EA. Announce a game show running it on ultra high end pic Hype it with different gaming sites advertisement make it sound lIke the best promise proMise and more promise over hype when released bought reviews or has gaming journalists become gutless release it and it's average or brokeN say sorry and announce season pass promise better future and more community feedback Yet keep doing and making the same mistakes I miss the old UBI that didnot try to make every one of their games into yearly releases
"New Assassin's Creed Game Confirmed for Next Fiscal Year" Right on! "... Will Use AC Unity's Technology" FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!
Admit it. YOU people promise to NEVER BUY the next game but end up BUYING it on launch AGAIN. Thus telling Ubisoft that it's perfectly okay to make a buggy game at launch and still win money like lottery. Wait till E3 DEMO gets revealed and you guys will be like "OOOH!! GOTY 4 SURE! My no.1 game to buy at launch." Then the previews and hands on demos will arrive (Which I will hopefully publish on this website AGAIN like last year) and everyone (majority) will board the hype train. Not me. I'm done buying hype tickets.But I then began selling them!!!
Don't speak for me buddy, I was done with the Assassins Creed franchise after AC3
I admit I was going to skip unity until I saw how dull the current gen game lineups were. I'm definitely skipping this one this year but will be ready for next year when they are supposed to be taking the franchise to Japan. The birth of the ninja...that should be freaking awesome man.
I never played Unity, bf4, etc. I learned my lesson and if you look at the sales numbers for the games so did a lot of other people.
Not to mention a chunk of the game will be locked up to a mobile app, or ACInitiates that won't work 1/2 the time or sync up all past accomplishments. I've 100% synced almsot every AC game and got the platinum on them but AC Initiates showed the 100% but also said I never started the games.
ubisoft should refer to their farcry 3 game and read through this again: please excuse the language its from the quote Vaas: Did I ever tell you what the definition of insanity is? Insanity is doing the exact... same fucking thing... over and over again expecting... shit to change... That. Is. Crazy. The first time somebody told me that, I dunno, I thought they were bullshitting me, so, I shot him. The thing is... He was right. And then I started seeing, everywhere I looked, everywhere I looked all these fucking pricks, everywhere I looked, doing the exact same fucking thing... over and over and over and over again thinking 'this time is gonna be different' no, no, no please... This time is gonna be different, I'm sorry, I don't like... The way...
will use AC unity technology? will that include floating bodies, headless npc and possibly another 13gb patch
My favourite is still, 'oh, that man in the crowd suddenly has a hat, and that man is now a woman, and that woman vanished into thin air'.
Mines when your stalking the rooftops being ultra stealth, then there's a couple of NPC's standing next to you chatting about the weather.
LOL read this: http://kotaku.com/ubisoft-c... "A few things weren't perfect." A few.LOL.
We deserve to have them devote more time to each game. They should move AC to a release schedule of once every two years. They are harming their IP by rushing new games out every year, IMHO.
but most of the games already get 3+ years in development. Unity was the only different one, since they didnt have devkits that long ago probably. Its not just one studio making all the games
So you are saying that there are multiple $h!tty studios within Ubisoft. Wow could have fooled me....
That's a lie. The "3+ years of development" really means 2 years of writing and basic design work with the usual 1.5 years of actual development work that will result in the graphics, gameplay, and whatnot being done. There's a lot to "development" and they make it sound like the programmers and artists and QA are there through the whole point. They're not. They start "development" at the stage when they have the writers and researchers working on the concept of the new game. Edit: And while they do have multiple studios, the period of work is still the same. They hire or move people from one studio to another as needed to work on the content once they are done making last year's game (or done patching it, as the case may be).
Multiple studios does not automatically equate to better creativity or performance. All it means is that less stress for a single employee since jobs are spread out across more manpower. This applies especially with studios like Ubisoft that are more corporate than other studios (like Valve for example). Why Ubisoft needs to go back to the biannual release schedule is due to two major things: 1) More time for creativity: Since each game is getting more stale (exception is AC4). 2) More time for bug-fixing. AC3 and ACU proved that Ubisoft did not give enough time for fixing bugs and glitches. Every open world game has a ton of bugs/glitches.
@Christopher: The problem with your thought process is that when, say, a game like Unity is done the team responsible for it immediately starts working on the AC game that's coming out after the one that's coming out after Unity. So it's like this. AC Unity Team worked on AC Unity AC Rogue Team on Rogue. AC Rogue Team works on AC6 AC Unity Team works on AC7 Factor in heavily reused assets and voice actors, and you already have less work to do. I swear that Ubisoft has stuck with European settings for so long so they can just reuse architecture and they DEFINITELY reuse voices. I've heard it. That's how they can release a new AC game every year and still take the 3 years to develop one game. That said, the fact that they are so big is the franchises biggest problem. Too many Chiefs, not enough Indians as the saying goes.
***The problem with your thought process is that when, say, a game like Unity is done the team responsible for it immediately starts working on the AC game that's coming out after the one that's coming out after Unity. *** That gives them the ~1.5 years I mentioned above to work on the game prior to release considering they don't move on until major patches and DLC are done on the one game and finish the other game at least a month prior to actual release (which is what we get into our hands) when they then move onto patching and ongoing DLC work for the game. I probably didn't explain how I came up with the ~1.5 years, but it took into account moving people from one game to another. And, I still stand by that the first year, at least, is comprised primarily of designing, writing, and research. Essentially the stuff that gets converted (or cut and pasted from older games if possible) into the game world.
Assassin's Greed. Please Ubi, finish the story and move on.
I would argue that they should just eliminate any regular release schedule, and just release the game when its good, and ready.
For some reason, that's a foreign concept to 75% of the developers out there. Even more if you include Greenlight/Early Access.
@Christopher: Come on now, you know that that's being too generous. Waiting is a concept foreign to at least 90% of publishers.
What a surprise! another AC game...
Assassin's Creed at one point was fresh and new. Now we get it annually.
Will Use AC Unity's Technology ?? Don't know if that a good thing, or a bad thing.
It could be a buggy thing. :)
"Will Use AC Unity's Technology" it will run like horse shit on every platform confirmed
AC Unity is gonna be my last game from ubisoft given the major screw up AC unity was at launch
They need to stop. I know these games sell tons every year though so why would they. I just do not understand the appeal with this franchise anymore. To each his own I suppose.
I'm shock... oh wait no I'm not.
Speak with your dollars, you can cry all you want, but Ubisoft sees it as any pub is good pub. Stop buying underdeveloped and unpolished games, and they will stop cranking them out like rabbits.
This this this one gazillion percent Gamers cry about everything and we want new IP's yet buy the same darn sequels every year Where were the sales for sunset overdrive it was a new IP and a great game? Oh that's right a broken ac and same old same old COD will outsell it. Same people who are complaining are the ones who buy yearly sequels Gamers are the biggest hypocrits. Speak with your wallets and watch how these publishers actually listen But it's cool to want new IP's but it's better to buy yearly releases because your friends are playing and you know what to expect fellow Xbox family so yall should be ashamed for not supporting sunset overdrive Next time you go to buy a game try Something new
god pleas make this game play like blackflag and make it just as open.
On the one hand it could turn out like a buggy mess. Im staying hopeful as this project is being led by a new lead studio and the kotaku leak mentioned that an up and running demo was available, signalling perhaps a better development life. Of course Ubisoft should pay for the mistakes of Unity, and should be very concerned for the series. Its a great franchise, but its being destroyed by annual releases. I would be very happy if the next instalment was delayed into next year.
They need to make sure this game, The Division and RS6 Siege are perfectly running games. They cant afford another 2014 disaster. No way am i buying these games at launch.
Uses AC Unity tech does NOT a good marketing slogan make! Though Ubi have had that monumental f'up to learn from. Sensibly, I waited until mid Jan to buy it, works way better than launch window.
can't say im surprised
People, please stop buying these games.
Hey, maybe we will get the extreme cinematic experience of 10 fps!
They won't stop milking AC just like Activison doing with CoD or EA with BF. Ubisoft is the new EA/Activison.
I'll happily buy something that includes AC IV: Black Flags tech and ships, but not something based on that turd known as Unity.
So a new game releases in a couple of months? Is the initiates thing back up yet? I want to unlock the altair out Has the weapon glitch been sorted yet? I want to use all of the guilotine guns and about 15 other weapons that i cant equip. Im a big fan of ac but unity so far has been the biggest slap in the face regarding player saves, unlockables and glitches.
I did not even play AC Unity lol lazy greedy bastards ruined potentially awesome story for AC series :[
Well, as I have said before, if we are not getting what we want out of Assassin's Creed, simply put, don't pay for it. I wish that we can hit Ubisoft where it hurts, which is profit margin below par. They create a game that is buggy, shallow story, stale, same mechanics from over 4 years ago, barely optimized and full of bugs and glitches with a 60 dollar price tag. With Ubisoft and EA specifically and any other game company that doesn't care for quality products, I am only buying the games when the following is true: 1. I am interested 2. Multiple professional reviews showing more good traits few bad ones. 3. Reviews of users are mostly positive. This is most likely 1 or 2 out of 7-10 games they release per year. until maybe next year, the year after that or in 3 years or more, comes another 1 or 2 games that are actually good. Back to Assassin's Creed, the franchise have died with the passing of Ezio and Altair. To me, AC 1 to Revelations were the golden ages.
AC Unity technology? Why? Here's an idea, take 2 years for the next AC & give us something worthy of the name like AC:Brotherhood
AC2 > Brotherhood IMO
Out of all the games we have played over the years I never would have thought a game like assassin's creed would be milked to death. It seems every year another one is releasing.
What technology lol? It was bugged to hell and the same formula since the original assasins creed... the only creed worth talking about since the original is the last one with the ships. Gotta admit that was badass. The game itself was boring but my god sailing the seas and battling other ships was epic. Why dont they take that ship formula and make a pirate game with rpg elements and fully destructible ships. Id buy day 1.
Gamers need to stand up and quit buying Assassin's Creed.
I'm going to get ripped apart for this. I bought Unity post-patches discounted on Black Friday and I really loved it (ended up Plat'ing it). There definitely were still some bugs, and the connectivity with Initiates website not working is stupid. I also didn't like that this had nothing to do with the Main Storyline beyond finding the Sword of Eden and some Sage's body. I bought Rogue but haven't played it yet. I'll do the same thing with this AC, wait a month and see it's status!
