Ubisoft isn’t planning to end the Assassin’s Creed anytime soon.
The developers behind one of the most successful video game franchise in history has announced that it plans to release a new installment in the series every year. Once the fans get tired of games, Ubisoft says it will pull the proverbial plug.
Ubisoft Montreal’s Yannis Mallat explained that the company currently has several teams working on new Assassin’s Creed titles. In addition to the group putting the finishing touches on Black Flag, Mallat said developers are working on a title for the next generation of consoles.
“The players will tell us. Right now there are more and more coming into the franchise, so I don’t see that day. It’s our breakthrough. When you have quality content, the frequency of coming out with the game is not an issue at all,” he explained to Eurogamer.
Mallat added, “‘Assassin’s Creed’ is mature enough in terms of reaching the critical mass of players and community, but also in terms of envisioning enough content for years to come, and in terms of technology to sustain all that.”
In other words, fans of the franchise won’t have to worry about the series coming to an end anytime soon. As long as people keep buying the games, Ubisoft will keep developing sequels.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will let players take control of an assassin who also happens to be a pirate. The sequel will allow gamers to become captain of a mighty vessel as they sail the seas in search of adventure. The game is expected to launch later this year.
Although Ubisoft recently revealed that the company was developing another Assassin’s Creed title for next gen systems in Toronto, details about this particular project are presently under lock and key.
