Ubisoft Would be “Very Stupid” not to Release a New Assassin’s Creed Each Year

March 31, 2014Written by Jason Dunning


Already a franchise that sees yearly releases, it appears as though Ubisoft is set to release not one, but two different Assassin’s Creed games in 2014 for consoles – Unity and Comet.

Revealing why we see a new Assassin’s Creed title each year is Lionel Raynaud, Ubisoft VP of Creative, who told Edge:

We are able to offer people a new Assassin’s Creed every year because they want Assassin’s Creed every year. 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.

While Raynaud didn’t confirm the existence of Comet, he was able say, “We will have games for PS3 and 360 for this year and probably the years after. We want to be able to provide games to people who are playing on these consoles. Black Flag was the first Assassin’s Creed game of this new generation but it was designed with that in mind, but I wouldn’t say it was a cross-generation game, as it has features that could only be for this generation.”

Do you think we’ll ever get to a point where Assassin’s Creed games don’t come out every year? Let us know in the comments below.
