>the best Assassin's Creed game in years is a spinoff

Just keep on making spinoff game Ubisoft, they turn out pretty good.

RiPPn3353d ago (Edited 3353d ago )

Do we have a price on this?

Edit: never mind it's right in the article: It will be free for those who purchased an Assassin’s Creed Unity season pass or available to all for $9.99.

MegaRay3353d ago

Is this game coming to Vita? I remember a rumor about a vita release. Would get it if so, since i dont see myself playing a 2d game in PS4.

ArchangelMike3353d ago

This would be perfect for the Vita actually.

Phoenix763353d ago

Agreed. Chronicles for the vita and a port of Rouge for ps4.

TheNemesis5013353d ago

After barely playing unity I'm going to skip A.C anything this year. maybe when they spin off black flag into ins own series I'll coming back for that.

Takwin3353d ago

They did. It's called Rogue.

Ubisoft Montreal in Turmoil Amid What Developers are Calling Broken Promises

IGN writes: "On September 11, most of the over 4,000 employees at Ubisoft Montreal returned to office in Montreal’s Mile End for the first time in three years. But hardly anyone seems happy about it, and many are furious at what they’re calling broken promises from Ubisoft leadership."

Jin_Sakai281d ago (Edited 281d ago )

All this over working 2 days a week in the Office? Doesn’t surprise me coming from western developers.

“Montreal employees are expected to work a minimum of two days a week out of the office. "

lodossrage281d ago

Well 2 days a week or not, a broken promise is a broken promise.

According to the article, management told these workers they would be allowed to be 100% remote. 2 days a week is still lax sure, but it doesn't change the fact these workers were told one thing yet given something different.

Jin_Sakai281d ago

I guess they’ll learn to keep their mouth shut next time. They brought this on themselves.

Crows90280d ago

Right and I'm sure it was a promise made without any conditions...

There's a reason companies are trying tk get people back into the office. If performance across the board was the same or better then they wouldn't want to go back to the office....however, performance across the board is not at 100% it's less. Working from home is a privilege for the team.

MrCrimson280d ago

circumstances change. They were promised 0 remote at one point. They can quit and go somewhere else- the reason they are complaining on IGN instead of doing that is that there is nothing better.

abstractel280d ago (Edited 280d ago )

@MrCrimson Ah, yes, the old "If you don't like it, leave" argument. The same used when if you don't like the politics in your country you should just move. Consider what they are doing instead to be fair act of standing up to broken promises. They have a right to voice their concerns if this is true. Maybe quite a few people will leave, but that doesn't mean they should just leave quietly. There are also many reason you might not want to leave and hope management changes their minds so it's worth it to speak out.

Pfft hahaha 🤣, yeah you go ahead and let people walk all over you Jin, as if that'll earn you some favor in their eyes. You're just as disposable to them as pair of cheap shoes. Licking their boots won't change that.

Jin_Sakai281d ago

I know corporate don’t give a shit about you but do tell how working at home is better for game development?

fsfsxii281d ago

jin sakai is only concerned about worker's rights if their rights will affect the development of his favorite vidya gaem

@Jin_Sakai
Not every white collar job requires you to occupy empty space in an archaic office setting. I can speak as someone that's been working from home since covid started. I do VFX for a living, which can fall within game development among other things.

No commute. I don't need to wake up an hour in advance. No traffic making me late. No traffic coming back taking up my free time. Save on gas. Which in a recession is a godsend. I can focus on what needs to get done for the day without being pestered by others for unrelated work things because my domicile isn't a rotating door. Meetings are cut and dry. I save on time cooking lunches for myself in the kitchen. No need to overpay at an overpriced restaurant in the area. If family needs me I'm closer since my place of work is further out. Overall It's far more relaxing, better for my mental and financial health and has allowed me to improve on my craft.

1000% on everything stated here! My company tried implementing the exact same return to office policy as Ubisoft, but fortunately for me, I have an immediate supervisor that went against the grain and allowed us to continue work from home permanently. That's a hard custom to break once you've become accustomed to it for 3+ years.

crazyCoconuts281d ago

Not if your have actual skills. You'd find companies bending over backwards to retain you. When it's working well it's a mutually beneficial relationship.

shadowknight203280d ago (Edited 280d ago )

Shiore is 10000% right. I'm not a remote worker, but the facts speak for themselves here. If a job isn't necessary to work in an office, than why put undue hardship on your employees for the facts stated here, I can argue undue hardship is being done. Remember lockdowns, just 15 days to curve the virus? Then it was 30, then it was 30 more, this same can apply to 2 days a week, then its 2 days a week, turns to 3, then it'll be back to the normal 5 day system for everyone involved. Just because it doesn't effect me, or you, doesn't mean it shouldn't. The reason why we as a global society are in such turmoil across the globe financially (recession) has alot to do with every one of us complying. Doesn't matter what the topic is, if we see facts that stand to reason, and in order to comply those facts go against that reason, we need to stop complying. Plain and simple. There's a reason here in America the movement of "we will not comply" is taking form, and I'm seeing it in other parts of the world too. We as a human species need to stand for our rights together, if it affects 1 of us, then we need to see it as it affects all of us. This isn't 2010 anymore, alots changed in a short amount of time. Imagine what'll happen if we keep on letting these corporations boss us around.

Why are you talking towards something you clearly haven’t experienced or know almost nothing about?

GTFO

jwillj2k4281d ago

2 days turns to 3 turns to 4 etc. Learn to read between the lines.

shadowknight203280d ago (Edited 280d ago )

Someone here knows and speaks sense. And reason. 3 disagrees. Shows u how many sheep continue to be herded here.

Binarycode281d ago

Are you Japanese, where they work you to the bone, social status, looked down on if you don't earn a certain amount.

No employer gives a toss about it's workers unless they are high-end and pulling in big money. All people are replaceable.

But a Promise is a Promise. Don't give them out if you can't keep them.

shinoff2183280d ago

That's not completly true. Some employers actually care.

Couple instances.

I was on my way to work one day decided to hit up peach street(street with the mall and numerous other plazas, best buy, etc It goes on for 2 miles of stores and fast food) I broke down in the middle of the road 4 to 6 lane traffic. One of the owners sons towed me to the part store paid for my part and put it in. I went to pay it back when I got paid and they wouldn't let me.

Another, we have a guy thats about to retire next spring, he's slipping(in the head) they are letting this guy finish it out so he doesn't have to go find another job until then.

I've been there for 12 years and they legit seem to care. Now I've worked at a few bigger corporate type places and those type of places don't seem to give two fks about anyone and anyone is replaceable.

sadraiden281d ago

Go worship your corporate overlords justifying their real estate investments somewhere else.

We call your behavior "bootlicking".

crazyCoconuts281d ago

Oversimplification that demonstrates you've never had the responsibility of building an effective team. The world is too complicated to just go around and call people derogatory terms to shut down their opinion and think you're right to do so
