More information regarding a last-gen Assassin’s Creed will be revealed soon, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said today during an investor call.

Hmmm... perhaps it will be a 2D platformer, like the Prince of Persia games, coming to XBLA and PSN... using the same engine they used for the Rayman games, and Child of Light!?

MatthewBandeira3658d ago

I doubt it. I think it will be similar to AC IV: Black Flag.

Yi-Long3658d ago

I doubt it. Full retail games often get info released for them usually a year orso in advance, sometimes maybe 6-8 months...

... but many downloadable games often get announced only a few months prior to release, if not even shorter.

The fact that we haven't read, seen or (really) heard anything about this new 'last-gen' Assassin's Creed, whil release is just a few months away, makes me believe it will be a smaller downloadable-only title.

And a while back there were rumours that Ubisoft was working on a new 2D Prince of Persia game, so perhaps that was actually a 2D Assassin's Creed game. Jumping roofs, sword fighting. It's not that farfetched.

Anyway, we'll see, but it wouldn't surprise me if this turns out to be a downloadable-only game, and a 2D platformer at that.

Which I would welcome, btw.

@Yi-Long

Assassin's Creed Unity had its first info released in June at E3, which is 4 months before the game comes out. Also, they don't want to take any of the thunder away from Unity so soon after its reveal by introducing a new AC title for last-gen consoles. That's probably the reason why they haven't said much about the last-gen AC game.

@ vampetz

The first teaser trailer/announcement for Unity was released back in April which is when Ubi usually announces new AC games. So that's about 6 months out from release.

@JimmyDM90

While AC Unity was announced earlier, it was announced with relatively no info about the game or how it would play. And the OP talked about full retail games often getting info a year or so in advance, then saying maybe 6-8 months, which is what I was replying to in my original post.

could just be something like liberation...little side story type thing

360ICE3658d ago

I see absolutely no reason why they wouldn't use the same formula they've always used. Few things seem less realistic than this not being a normal AC game. I mean, this is AC we're talking about.

Neixus3658d ago

Last-Gen? Wouldn't previous-gen be more correct?

Allsystemgamer3658d ago

No. They mean the same thing. The last generation before the new generation.

LightDiego3658d ago

And we will pretend that we are surprised when they announce a port to the current generation a few months after the release.

Yi-Long3658d ago

Of course they will. It's Ubisoft.

Immorals3658d ago

And the tagline will be 'in full 1080p 60fps'.

And still charge full price

starchild3658d ago

PC will get both Assassin's Creed games either way.

ginsunuva3658d ago

I actually had a dream last night where I woke up and suddenly asked myself "What happened to the other AC game supposed to come out for last-gen?"

Then I realized "Wait, who cares?!" and went back to sleep.

Ubisoft Teams Up With Double Jump Tokyo To Work On Its NFT Multiplayer RPG

It appears that Ubisoft is still pursuing NFTs. It has partnered with Double Jump Tokyo to work on an NFT multiplayer RPG project.

-Foxtrot9d ago

NFT? Lmao

It’s over Ubisoft where you guys been, Jesus.

Smok918d ago

Well you look at how many games are in development with NFT’s currently you can see they’re preparing for the next bull-run this Fall.

porkChop9d ago

Man, I haven't even heard anyone mention NFTs in ages. NFTs are dead. The Guillemot family just keep finding ways to damage their business. They need to go.

gold_drake9d ago

big eyeroll moment

gamers: "hey we hate nfts"

Ubisoft: "oh u really really like NFTs u say?"
