Assassin’s Creed III Director Shares How He Would Edit the Remaster

The recent announcement of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s season pass came jam packed with surprises. In addition to the nearly year-long roll out of extra content, the season pass features remastered versions of Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation. For a season pass that costs $39.99 USD, these two remasters may make the pricey purchase worthwhile. Apart from improved gameplay mechanics, Ubisoft has yet to reveal what the remasters entail quality-wise. However, AC3’s Director, Alex Hutchinson, has shared what he’d change, if given the opportunity.

In a Twitter thread, Hutchinson explained which edits he would prioritize. His wishlist includes aspects that only the game’s director would likely consider. Meanwhile, other suggested changes are in good fun. For instance, Hutchinson jokes he’d like Ubisoft to admit that the Tomahawk is Assassin’s Creed’s second best weapon, after the Hidden Blade. (There’s a case to be made for Brotherhood’s Bone Dagger of Romulus, but the Tomahawk’s cool, too.)

Check below for a few of Hutchinson’s most noteworthy suggestions.

None of these changes are granular by any means. Implementing them into a remaster would essentially turn such a project into a full on remake. That said, it’s interesting that Assassin’s Creed III‘s flaws are recognized and reflected upon by developers several years after its 2012 release.

Alex Hutchinson also directed Far Cry 4, but no longer works with Ubisoft. He’s co-founder of the Montreal-based developer Typhoon Studios. His company has not yet announced what game it might be working on.

The remasters for Assassin’s Creed III and Liberation will be available sometime in March 2019.
