Ubisoft on annual Assassin’s Creed: ‘We would be very stupid to not satisfy this need’

Posted on March 28, 2014 AT 09:58am

Ubisoft’s vice president of creative Lionel Raynaud has insisted that the publisher wouldn’t be able to release a new Assassin’s Creed every year if fans didn’t want it.

Recently Ubisoft announced the latest entry in the franchise, Assassin’s Creed: Unity, which is set to release later this year for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. This follows the release of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag last year and Assassin’s Creed III in 2012.

“We are able to offer people a new Assassin’s Creed every year because they want Assassin’s Creed every year,” he told Edge. “As long as this is true we would be very stupid to not satisfy this need, but it puts a lot of pressure on us to create something that will never disappoint.

“It needs to keep the series core values and we need to really make sure that we have a good, high level understanding of what it is to be an Assassin. We have to make sure we always deliver a better feel and overall experience every time while still bringing something that they haven’t seen before that’s consistent with being an Assassin in the world we’ve created.”

Earlier this week, reports started circulating of another Assassin’s Creed title in development titled Comet. The game will be set during 1758 along the North Eastern costs of North America and the Atlantic Ocean. According to reports, the game’s protagonist, a sailor named Shay, will not be a member of the Assassins, but instead the Templar Order.
