We had known for a while not that Ubisoft wanted to annualize the Assassin’s Creed series. So we knew that there would be a new game coming this year and now we finally know what it’s going to be. It still isn’t Assassin’s Creed 3, but it is being billed as the last chapter in Ezio’s story. Ezio is going to travel over Constantinople and do a little adventuring there. The game promises though that this time you will not only be playing as Ezio and Desmond, but also Altaire from Assassin’s Creed.
The Assassin’s creed games have been some of the most popular and well made open world games right after the Grand Theft Auto series and their last one was just as good as Assassin’s creed 2. It seems like a scary proposition when a studio tries to annualize a game. We have seen it go sour with many franchises, Guitar Hero and currently Call of Duty. Ubisoft seems aware of the danger and is putting as much backing as they can behind each game. Utilizing multiple studios to ensure that they can keep up quality while also being able to have one year after year. As long as they can keep the games fresh, there shouldn’t be much of an issue.
