Assassin’s Creed: Unity is ‘a new narrative start’ for the franchise, says Ubisoft

Posted on July 9, 2014 AT 05:35am

Assassin’s Creed: Unity will serve as the perfect jumping on point for the Assassin’s Creed franchise due to it representing a new narrative start, according to Ubisoft.

“It’s a new start, it’s a new narrative start. That is symbolized by a completely new context for the present day,” creative director Alex Amancio told the Examiner. ”You’ve seen a little bit of an evolution with Black Flag, [but] we’re not going to do the same thing. What we’re doing with Unity is really the beginning [of] this new cycle of Assassin’s Creed games.

“Because it’s new, we can actually explain it properly because nobody is going to feel like it’s redundant. I would say that Assassin’s Creed Unity is the best entry point for the franchise since [the first Assassin's Creed].”

Assassin’s Creed: Unity is set to launch October 28 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
