Ubisoft: Number of Assassin’s Creed Games Complaints Only From a “Vocal Minority”

Assassins Creed Unity Preview 1

In case you didn’t know, there are two Assassin’s Creed titles coming out later this year. There’s Assassin’s Creed: Unity which will be released for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4; and then there’s Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, set to release on Xbox 360 and PS3.

So, not only is Ubisoft piling Assassin’s Creed games on an annual basis, it’s even releasing two games in the franchise just a month apart. While fans might relish the thought of being able to play two separate AC games in one year, to some people, that might be pushing it a tad too much. 

Speaking to Eurogamer at gamescom, Rogue Producer Karl von der Luhe said that he believed only “a vocal minority that feel that way,” with the thought directed at people who think Ubisoft is pumping out too many AC games too soon.

The producer adds that the studio is targeting gamers who still haven’t made the next-gen plunge, and that these gamers are “thankful” for the fact that they’ll have an Assassin’s Creed game to play on last-gen hardware.

There are the hardcore Assassin’s Creed fans that are happy to play two games and there are of course many fans who have not yet made that financial move to go to next-gen…And these are the guys that we’re really catering for – they’re thankful for the fact that they will have a compelling Assassin’s Creed game to play on either their Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3.

If you’re looking forward to Rogue, then go check out two gameplay videos straight from gamescom. Now, if you’re looking leaning more on Unity, then there’s a new trailer for that as well.

Do you think Ubisoft is going overboard with Assassin’s Creed releases? Also, should we expect two games per year moving forward?
