THE BUZZ: Ubisoft has revealed that they are considering taking some time off from the Assassin’s Creed franchise after the next installment to work on something fresh and innovative for the series.

The series has moved into an annual release schedule over the last few installments with the Revelations next month and the next installment in 2012, however the team is looking at changing this. “I think we have a nice process, a nice workflow,” said Ubisoft’s Rafael Lacoste. “But….I think we need to step back, to maybe take more time to do something fresh.”

“It’s still a big challenge, but we could make it with a little more time,” he added.

Lacoste also mentioned that fans love a new game coming out ever year and the quality hasn’t suffered as a result:

“If you make comparisons to television series; if the story’s good, they care about the characters and it’s compelling, they’re not going to complain when a seasonal TV series comes out every year, right? That’s not to say Assassin’s Creed will come out every year, but we feel like the momentum of ACII, AC Brotherhood and now AC Revelations will create a complete picture of Ezio’s life and also touch upon Altair. That’s something we wanted to do and we think the fans will enjoy it.”

EGM’s TAKE: Annual releases are a good thing for fans, but if it continues for too long then quality can begin to suffer and Ubisoft will want to avoid this.
