Scrawl: "Following Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot’s hint at a new Assassin’s Creed for 2011/12, Ubisoft EMEA chief of marketing and sales Geoffroy Sardin has confirmed a new release in the franchise for 2011."
This better not become a yearly series and get ruined or anything!
I do love AC series, but this is getting somewhat outta hand, although I wouldnt mind if they make an Altair spinoff game akin to brotherhood. Would love to go back to that time period again, just without the repetitiveness.
They already made Bloodlines for the PSP though. :/ Hate to say it but it looks like the milking has truly begun.
If you love a game franchise I would think you would want to continue to get more of that game as much as possible. If the quality of the game never diminishes then I would be all for getting more story, game play, and refinement. Unfortunately I have yet to play a AC game and my favorite games usually have me waiting at least two years before I can get something fresh from them.
Churn out anything "Assassin's Creed" yearly with some updates here and there, put your PR group to work on hyping and Voila! = Milking 101. Class has begun lol
@Nate. Milking is only bad when the game suffers. That said... Bloodlines was terrible. Every level was like every other level. Load times were long. The game was short. The only reason to play Bloodlines is for the unlockables in AC II. Money carries over as well. The DS game was crap too, I heard.
Played the first game and I thought I was enjoying it, until I finished it, went to restart the game and realized I couldn't bring myself to replay it! After that, no more AC for me! Come to think of it though, I am in the middle of my second playthrough of GTA4(bought it at launch) and am bored as Hell... but it seems different because after the first finish I did a lot of screwing around with the game(battling police, pushing people down stairs, beating up peds and running people over in various ways and vehicles).
It's a bit late for that now, JewelThief :). Although, I don't mind. I mean I played AC and it was good, but I didn't like it enough to give the sequel a go, which in turn made Brotherhood not even worth a look as I had missed the 2nd game and heard it helps if you played 2. Thus I will give this one a miss too. It's like Metal Gear Solid, if you miss the previous game, you are less likely to play the next one. OK bad comparison maybe, but I don't care I want to get back to GT5 lol.
I thought I recently saw an article saying there wouldn't be a new AC until nr 3? Haven't really finished AC2 yet, so this will put me way behind...
I am one of the people who LOVED even the first AC. I thought 2 was great, and Im still waiting to play brotherhood. As much as I love the series, I am not in a rush to go out and buy Brotherhood yet. It seems great still but im worried now that another one will be coming out next year too. Soon each one will just become blended with the others in our minds, kinda like how I hate family guy now. Hearing about a new AC game already has lost its excitement for me, now im just "meh" when I hear about a new AC game. Hope its amazing, but I bet they still wont make it challenging or have a hard mode.
I wasn't going to get it because it seemed like Assassin's Creed ODST. My first impression was it is just AC II with a Portable Ops game mechanic and multiplayer. If it didn't advanced the whole story, which I love, I wouldn't have bought it on release. Still I was looking forward to another time period, the French Revolution, Industrial Revolution, World War I...?
Dear UbiSoft Don't make AC a yearly game, It's a great game but for me it's going to lose it's value if it means one every year
Well apparently AC : Brotherhood is a really strong title even though it was developed in only a year. The only thing Ubisoft has to make sure of is that the next AC will be as long as its predecessors and will keep the intriguing plot we know the franchise has.
they played it smart they used the previous engine which was good and gave a story that answered questions about enzio that people actually wanted to know and an online that was pretty great
Brotherhood was their biggest launch title ever? Good, it's a great game and deserves recognition =)
Starting to turn into Assasins Greed. Hope it doesn't turn out like the Call Of Duty games.
Now that's milking!
Too early to say. We don't know how it will be content, story and gameplay wise.
I thought there wouldn,t be another ac game until 2012. I loved ac2 havent got brotherhood yet loved the beta for it il buy it soon though.
Not really. Brotherhood was more of an expansion rather than a new game.
Awesome,I hope they'll continue their good work
ac:b is not even worth calling it ac 2.5 it is more like ac: 1.75 (2 was ac:1.5) Long story short: UBI take your time and make a decent AC game
I don't know how you can't see the improvements in AC II. There was a lot more to preoccupy than the first game, extending the replay value considerably with the economic meta games with Monterigionni. Missions had more variety. The Notoriety system was more balanced. And the story was much better written. I can see if you were saying AC II is what the first should have been.
and 2 was great. Im looking forward to playing AC:B soon, but im not as excited about it as I was with the first 2. Ill wait till I see the next one to say if im disappointed or not. All I want from a new AC game is for it to be harder or have a hard mode. The first two were great but way easy.
its fine with me as long as they keep the storys interesting and giving me the wtf moments :P
Sad thing that he would think that the success of this game was due to multiplayer. I was on that thing all of 3 hot seconds. It's cute, but in the end its and an acquired taste and it will never replace balls to the wall fare like COD or MOH (that's Call of Duty and Medal of Honor for those that are just joining us). No, the REAL MEAT AND POTATOES of this game is the single player and if they continue to give us better and more varied things to do, and keep the quality UP then I say GO FOR IT. I mean Ubisoft is hurting for cash so they need to milk what they have. BUT, if they think that multiplaer was the factor and they intended to keep pushing that crap down our throats and wasting resources on that dead end. We are in for some painful times and the MOST painful will be if we see this great IP turn to utter shit.
england victorian times or somewhere in asia i.e. india or japan.
seriously all the got milk jokes are LAME as hell
Assassins Creed has perhaps the best game engine out of any game that has come out this gene (as far as brawler type games go). The combat was fun and satisfying and the free running mechanics was on point. My favorite games/series so far this gen is Uncharted, RDR, Assassins Creed, Arkyum Asylum, and ,as a self professed wrestling fanboy, Smackdown vs Raw 2010. By the by, none of the Smackdown games have shit on No Mercy or Def Jam: Fight for NY, gameplay wise but the creat a wrestler system is topnotch!
