Ubisoft’s Next Creed Will Surprise You

February 18, 2010Written by Thomas Williams

When Ubisoft announced last month that another Assassin’s Creed game would hit within the next year, fans were shocked. Ubisoft then mentioned that the new title would feature multiplayer, fans didn’t know what to think. It seems Ubisoft still has some surprises up their sleeves and they don’t mind teasing you about them.

Speaking to P3Zine, Ubisoft Europe MD Alain Corre believes fans of the series will be surprised about the next Assassin’s Creed title.

For next year we have announced a few weeks ago that we’ve got a new Assassin’s Creed game – the next iteration that will surprise everybody – and we believe that will be a big success as well. We need to put enough energy and talent into each new game, so it can become better than the previous one.

What kind of surprises exactly? Well, here’s what we do know.

– The title will feature Ezio Auditore as the main character, so we know who we should be playing as. The game will be following his storyline after the shocking ending of AC 2, but if I remember correctly, isn’t Ezio close to 40 at that point?

– It will have multiplayer ‘modes’.

– It will be a full-priced game.

And that’s about it. A team of over 400 developers worked on Assassin’s Creed 2 alone, see we can’t imagine how many people will be needed to pump out another triple A title like the AC series in such a short time.

What do you fans of the Assassin’s Creed series think about the addition of multiplayer? Is it the next step in the series or will it be a waste of resources? Let us know in the comments below.
