Assassin’s Creed has seen annual updates for a while now, but Ubisoft have suggested that they’ll be taking some time off after next year’s installment to work on “something fresh” for the franchise.
Atleast they are looking after there game I thought It had cod syndrome
and got massive disagrees. They should try making something else inbetween or taking two years instead of one to make every AC game
I agree. But you have to give them credit. Every AC that came out was an improvement over the previous, considering that they only had one year to develop. I mean even the cod guys technically get 2 years for each game (IW 1 year and Treyarch the next). Makes me wonder why they hell they don't upgrade. Ubisoft actually tries new stuff with each game. If they take 2 years, the product should be alot better than the previous.
You said hat except you and others make it sounds they were recycling things without improvements like cod . They actually kept assassin creed fresh and massively improved on it every game , even ultimately adding a great multiplayer experience to a genre that wasnt predisposed to it . I always have to laugh when some claims (not aiming at you) Brotherhood should just have been a AC2 dlc or included in ac2 . They obviously didnt truly play the game . Sure brotherhood started off from a bad idea (cutting off most of Rome from AC2) and greed , but it became its own beast and game . Anyway NOW that they feel they might tire it and will soon run out of steam , they'll pull back .
Rainbow six vegas should be the game in between or a new franchise.
I'm still looking forward to Revelations. Then I'd happily take a year off from the series to prepare for AC3, which will probably be on the next set of consoles.
LOL, man there's an AC for 2012 hehe.
AC3 has already been confirmed for 2012
With good reason to accomapany the story, AC3 will release next year. I hope its the final game this gen tbh. I dont mind waiting two, even 3 years or until the next gen for a new AC story arc. Hopefully this means we can get a sequel to PoP 08!
ugh i hated that one it was so boring
Yeah, I'm glad they're not going the same way as CoD and churning out an extremely similar game year after year
Bit late for me, already lost a lot of interest with the yearly releases. Desmond's story is the only thing really making me want to keep playing them and even then, it hardly progressed in Brotherhood :/.
That's because those arent actually sequel's. It's more of an expansion. Ac3 comes out next year.
They said the same thing I think after 2 came out.. but maybe they mean it this time.
Yeah and last time it was a dev of Brotherhood who said we wouldn't have a "big" AC this year. Their CEO then immediately claimed it wasn't his role to decide such things. And this time it's a dev too...
2 came out 2 years after 1
IMO they need to back off from that sh** excuse of a MP they included, god it was horrible
Its unnecessary yes, but its a surprising refreshing take on the Multi-Player style. We have too many cookie cutter FPS MP game types. AC's multiplayer is the first of its kind, so in being unique and different, its somewhat fun. But otherwise I would rather they cut out the MP aspect, and instead give us more story and side-quest missions.
This is my favorite franchise this generation. But even I have to admit that yearly games are not a good thing. Having said this, I still want Revelations and AC3 after it. Then, after AC3, Ubisoft should probably wait until the next generation to start a new age of AC games.
Yet assassins creed 3 is suppose to release in 2012...that's still annual to me.
Really? Who said that?
There was a story yesterday saying the series has been working towards 2012 and it would be silly not having a game in 2012.
Ya exactly, I Ubi said ac3 will be out in 2012, since you know, its part of the conspiracy that's mentioned in the game. I can't wait for it, but really I haven't even finished ac2. Lol.
I think it will be a good thing. I can see why they did a yearly instalments. Ezio is an important character and what he is doing directly effects what will happen in 2012. They said it all ends in 2012 for Desmonds story so setting up for 3 games was the plan. In 2014 would be a good time for another Assassin's Creed.
Lol they say this after releasing a game each year. However, I'm not complaining. I love AC especially since MGS hasn't been around I haven't been able to get my full on stealth. But absence does make the heart grow fonder. I wouldn't mind ubi taking two years to polish their game though. My wallet is running dry.
After the end of desmond story, i'll hope they'll stop and take time to build up assets for the next chapter
Great stuff, I never expected Ubi to come out and say something like this since they seemed to be going happy hour with the annual releases, I'm glad they realise that taking at least an extra half a year or year out to work longer on other games will be worth it. Not to mention it'll whet the apetite of us players even more.
It is too much. The storytelling is way too decompressed. Time to wrap it up and change eras/avatars.
