Kotaku: Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot claimed that a new Assassin’s Creed will be coming this year, stating that it will be “something interesting around the Assassin’s brand.”
Awesome another must buy for me this year, "If It Comes Out", i just want to have a decent ending this time.
I want a conclusion to the current story arch, no more cliff hangers.
Well, if it's the final entry in the series then yeah there won't be a cliffhanger.
@Eamon They did say ac was supposed to be a trilogy. I don't mind them doing spin offs kind of like Halo with reach and odst. But in terms of story I would like to see a conclusion to the current story.
Yes, a conclusion would be nice and it would also be nice if they improved the graphics, quite a bit.
@Eamon I just hate it when a franchise gets into perpetual releases and never has a conclusion to the story. Then they end up ruining the franchise. AC is one of my favorite franchise this gen so I don't want to see it ruined. While spin offs and a different story would be nice to keep the franchise going since it is a good franchise, a conclusion and non perpetual releases are what I seek.
I'm actually going to defend cod here so bear with me. You got one studio putting assassins creed year after and it takes 2 years for treyarch and info.ity ward to put out a buggy cod title. Sry on my evo. Hate touchscreen
it won't only be a trilogy! there will be more coming!
Well somehow I don't think AC3 will be the last game considering the huge scale of the story. There's so much story to tell in just a single game.
They are seemingly moving towards the annual CoD-direction. And this CoD-direction will in the end be disastrous for the quality of these games. Money money money
Well, Brotherhood didn't suffer despite the fact that it came out a year later.
True, but Brotherhood was built on the foundation of AC2. They already had a lot of material and assets to work with. If the next game takes place in a whole new region & era (as I hope it would), that short development time will make it very hard to pump out the same amount of content.
I think the next AC game was being made at the same time as ACB. So it would have been 2 years worth of development.
To be honest, if the milk tastes good the by all means milk it. The difference with COD is that the milk has expired.
^^Pretty much this Whats wrong with having having a sequel every year so long as its actually good, and an improvement on the previous iterations. People can call it milking, but If I get more of what i love, whats wrong with that?
Assassin's Creed: Black Ops I hope not. Guitar Hero is dead and CoD is a laughingstock. Milking a franchise doesn't end well.
As much as i love Assassins Creed series, i will say that releasing a Sequel each year is SH#T, literally SH#t. From all 3 i love the first one the best, it was repetitive as hell, but it had a unique and different feel to it.
I think the 1st one was more detailed and more care went into it, I'll have to see, as I'm going to replay all three pretty soon anyway. And it would be very nice if they released trophies for ACI on the PS3, it really irritates me seeing ACII and ACB in my trophy list but not ACI...
YA, trophies would be wonderful, if they release it. Will be a good enough reason for me to play them again.
They already said that there would be one last year before brotherhood was out
Lots of milk from ubi
Luckily it's delicious milk and not sour milk.
Please stop turning assassin's creed into call of duty i like this series....can't you just end the plot line and be happy with that then in a couple years come out with the assassin's creed trilogy set containing 1,2(including brotherhood since thats just the rest of 2) and 3
Amen brother. I don't want to see this franchise ruined.
There's been 3 Assasin's Creeds since 2007. Cool your fuckin jets people
also a few handheld AC games too. I love the series, including AC1, but I think every year may be pushing it in the long run. I didnt really care abut BH when it came out, but I really enjoyed it when I got it. Ill enjoy this one too Im sure but I think that I will get tired of it soon, like how im tired of COD now.
a year later Assassin's Milk 2
Hey, if it's good i saw keep them coming.
ok, then it will continues to Assassin's Milk 3 after that and 4 and so on...
This is old news. I wouldn't mind more Creed since Brotherhood was superb.
Best one yet IMO.
Yep sure is and to do it in a year is crazy.
arent they complaining about originality>?
But I am starting to become worried that a new Assassin's Creed will be out every year which is not good news if you want the series to improve.
I love Assassins Creed brotherhood but there was something about it I didn't like. I think there was too few side quests or more of the area was unlocked straight away. AC2 we were drip fed content throughout the game brotherhood didn't do that. AC3 should remedy that I hope. Brotherhood had little new to offer but was fun.
Are you crazy?? Brotherhood has a SH*T load of things to explore. There is soooo much more in Brotherhood.
Agreed Brotherhood had lots of stuff to explore and do, in fact it's the only game i didn't felt was repetitive.
What I am saying is that enjoyed slowly getting content. I could take out all the towers as soon as I got to Rome. I would have rather have areas locked off and gradually unlocked like in the first 2 games.
Well it kinda is the only Ubisoft game thats any good. But damn hopefully this new one does something new.
I agree, there isn't much Ubisoft brought out this gen.
Just Dance? I don't know if it's a good game or not but it's hilarious that you guys commented like the Wii doesn't exist lol!
i said good. Sales dont = good. Just dance is awful, i gave my gf my wii (hehe) and she bought just dance 2. Its fun when drunk but that doesn't really count.
My tits hurt.
Its What I Feared, The Milking Has Started
It started with Brotherhood, i think it was an amazing game, but they must have taken their time with it.
and in other news...the sun comes up tomorrow morning..... But doesn't make me any less excited....though that makes 6 must buy games from sep-dec this year....I didn't need money anyway
"I want a conclusion to the current story arch, no more cliff hangers. " Just like I said last month! It's been listed at EB/Gamestop for awhile now. But anyways to answer your question, hopefully our listing will make you happy. I kid you not, it is listed in our computer system for preorder as Assassin's Creed Final Ep. If you go preorder it at Eb/Gamestop ask them to let you see what it's listed as, in Canada at least that's what we got on our computer system.
Cannot wait for it. :D
another series turning into an identikit annual franchise. wonderful o_O so the single player campaign getting shorter every year while the multiplayer and map packs become all important. still that's one less game series i have to worry about having enough money for.
I hope something comes up this year's E3. Well last year Sony announced their exclusive stuff with Ubi Soft DLC, Beta before release and so on so I am guessing Sony might say something about it this year.
