Ubisoft Toronto is apparently already hard at work on the yet untitled Assassin’s Creed V. This is despite the fact that the fourth iteration of the game series hasn’t hit the market yet.
The game developers have said that Assassin’s Creed IV will be out by April of 2014, it seems likely that the fifth title in the series will be out about a year after that. While we now know that the next chapter in the saga will actually be a bit of a reboot.
The next chapter will take place on the high seas, and is going to be called Black Flag. Ubisoft Toronto chief Jade Raymond has now come out and acknowledged that her company is working with Ubisoft Montreal in order to put out the game that will follow Black Flag.
Raymond also talked about a couple of other games that her studio will be working on, either independently or with other studios like the chapter in Montreal. In all, Raymond said her studio is working on five new titles and while she didn’t spill the beans on all of them, she did say that a new Splinter Cell was on the agenda.
Because of the nature of her work, Raymond really couldn’t give any details in what the newest titles would bring. It does seem quite promising for the franchise that there will be at least a fifth version.
One has to wonder whether the next Assassin’s Creed will be a sequel to the pirate adventures in the fourth game, or whether the series is going to start taking bits and pieces from different historical periods and start brand new storylines along the way.
The company tends to split up its studios to work on multiple projects like this quite often so the fact that work has begun on games that won’t hit the market for several more years isn’t totally shocking.
What do you think Ubisoft Toronto’s next Assassin’s Creed game will be?
