"More franchises can help quality", says Ubisoft

Ubisoft has long been known for games such as Splinter Cell, Rainbow Six, and Ghost Recon. More recently the firm has released its new IP, Assassin's Creed, which has seen mixed thoughts across the board. With that in mind, just how important is it for them, or the industry as a whole to create new IPs instead of just sequels from the current ones?

Fabrice Pierre-Elien, Business Development manager mentions that creating new intellectual property (IP), is a very daunting task, but can really improve the quality of games.

"Just to churn out sequel after sequel, we have done that in the past as well, and we are still very keen on establishing franchises - but we take the time in between those sequels to make the best possible game, not just another title of which the previous edition was out twelve months ago," says Pierre-Elien.

The story is too old to be commented.

New IP's are great. They offer us a new guy to root for in a new area and still offer us (for the most part) the tried and true way. The only thing I'm starting to notice is that some are trying to fool us into thinking that the only way to tell the story is with a trilogy and how long games are not what the gamer wants. So rather than making one complete game they hack the story in a 3 way split and you got your trilogy. Mass Effect, Too Human, Heavenly Sword, FF XIII, and I'm sure more that I can't think of right at this time but you get the idea.

Not saying those games aren't sweet it's just frustrating to see sometimes. Give us the game you wanted to make! Sure sure max the profit portfolio I get it but still!
