Assassin's Creed Game Director Benoit Lambert stated that the team wants to take the time to develop a great game, with a unique and meaningful experience for players.
I'm all for taking a year off from the formula. Last year felt one-note with Mad Max, Batman, and AC: Syndicate all sharing that same style of combat.
It's nice to hear that, but since almost every Ubi game is practically the same but reskinned now, i'll see it when I believe it.
Far Cry, Rainbow 6, The Division, Assassin’s Creed, etc. Really all the same things, can't tell a difference.
I think this is wise. The pressure is huge as look at COD. Sure more time would be great but your stock holders want a new game every year. So they added a third developer which allowed a game a year and gave the other two an extra year of development time.
They just have to release Beyond Good and Evil 2 by the end of the year and that could replace Assassin's Creed this year
Yeah and no bugs or glitches this time right?
In theory, taking more time should also translate in more polish. Then again, open world games will always have some bugs.
Until you reboot it and give the series a meaningful overall story so it doesn't just feel we are jumping from location to location where that's basically the only "wow" factor of the new instalment I can't imagine people getting excited again no matter how long you spend on it
It doesn't need a reboot, just another story arc so it's not just mindless locations with no real plot.
Course it does. It's went no where and is going no where They need to go back and filter out most of this First Civilisation stuff while having someone like Desmond to keep everything together
@-Foxtrot (POSSIBLE SPOILER)I have a feeling Desmond is going to be brought back to life with the shroud in the next one...
Can't wait to see how Assassin's Creed Egypt is in 2017
Me too, the setting is a nice choice.
It's a 4 year dev cycle (double the usual) and the first reoccurring team since Patrice Desiltes got the boot. It better be good
