Ubisoft hope to keep the Assassin’s Creed series going as long as they can, producer Vincent Pontbriand has revealed.
But don't start the milking with AC3. With Brotherhood now out I DON'T consider AC franchise to be milked, and I don't understand if people think so. BUT, for AC3. Here is where the milking has the possibility to start. Don't release AC3 in 2011. Wait till 2012 and rather support Brotherhood with some decent DLC. Yearly releases is in my eyes a sign of milking so please don't go that road. Let's rather feel the pain of waiting for AC3 in 2012 instead. AC: Brotherhood is freaking sweet btw :D Still an impressive SP, and the MP gives an extra few hours of gameplay.
wait for the lame DLC to come out, which will be clearly cut from the original game.
We need a conclusion to the assassins and templars story; don’t do X-Files where there is never an end. It's possible to finish this one and start a whole new story with other secret orders. History is full of them.
Urrrrg. I WANT there to be an ending. I like the AC series but I don't want them to needlessly drag it out just to make a buck.
"support Brotherhood with some decent DLC." right because support=DLC sorry to burst your bubble to DLC is just another way to milk a game.
Well AC is already milkedif the next AC is out november 2011 ( and it most likely will ) then it's good bye for me AC2 was plagued by 2 sequences DLC AC:B will be plagued by multiplayer Dlcs if not spécial sequences for one console and not the other ... yep i call that milking ....
yep, i call your thinking retarded
yep call others "retard" and you feel better , yeah ? go on ... impressive answer by the way
And im gonna support the franchise as long as i can ! i think its the best new IP this gen.
It has been one of my favs too. It's fairly unique to play and i love the eras it has so far been set.
AC AC2 AC:brotherhood AC:Altair's Chronicles AC:Bloodlines its getting to that point. when you start pushing out DS/iphone/psp versions it starts to become apparent. for me the series needs to be thinned out, a release every year will burn out the gamers as well as the developers. please keep it a two year cycle.
imo they're already milking it with all of that. i thought there were only 4, but 5? damn
yea i guess thats 5, #6 with AC3. and you can bet they have some more ds/iphone/psp/xbla/psn/webgame s planned.
good thing I have cookies! no but seriously, I hope they are not implying that this series will never see an ending( at least an ending to the desmond arc). I want to see a satisfying conculsion to the desmond arc and then do another storyline, maybe in modern times?
They've confirmed that AC3 won't be out before 2012, so I'm not too worried on that front. Just wish Patrice were still on the team.
That's great, but a 2 or 3 year cycle would be better to avoid milking. And is it me or does everyone else think Patrice leaving the team will make future games... lack that certain flair that these games have?
I'm lactose intolerant so I am against the milking of anything, except human female breasts, I'll milk those dry if you let me.
just focus on fixing the ugly look of the character and the embarrassing walking animations in your next game ubisoft...
its already played out lol
but ill play it as long as they keep making improvements. I well get seriously mad if they milk it DRY.
Assassins Creed is gonna become Ubisofts COD.
They'd better not take forever to end the Desmond story- I want to support the franchise as much as I can, but if that goes on forever, I could just get bored. There are other secret orders (as someone said) that they could use after they've finished with the templars. The Illuminati, The Church of Jesu (though that might be kinda similar with the whole pope thing, but still, just throwing it out there) etc. I'd hate to see one of my favourite franchise die out because of over-milking.
