It appears that Assassin’s Creed‘s annual releases are set to continue for some time, if a statement by Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat is anything to go by.

“The players will tell us,” Mallat said in response to Eurogamer‘s concerns about the fanbase getting tired. “Right now there are more and more coming into the franchise, so I don’t see that day.

“People expect more and more of that content. So it’s natural to be able to provide that content. The gamers are happy and it’s our job to make them happy.”

When asked if he believed that too many entries would make the series become stagnant he replied, “The team that has delivered Assassin’s Creed 3, they’re not working on Black Flag. They’re resting. They are refreshing their minds and then working on something else that is not announced.”

While having numerous teams working on each game may reduce the risk of burnout and a lack of innovation it does open up the series to the danger of being watered down. As more and more people work on the series it runs the risk of losing its core identity. So far it has managed to avoid it, but eventually the things that made the first game so popular may get lost in a myriad of new ideas.
