Ubisoft: Assassin’s Creed Franchise Is “Relevant” And “Has A Long Way To Go”

The Assassin's Creed franchise has been getting new entries on an annual basis for quite some time now, and Ubisoft has no plans of slowing down.

According to Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag creative director Jean Guesdon, Ubi has made it clear that the series has plenty of life left in it. “I think we have proven that this franchise is relevant, and that it has a long way to go. Our job as developers of this new opus is to surprise players and bringing fresh, different ideas, while at the same time ensuring that what makes AC such a stand-out franchise remains intact," he told OXM.

“With the scale and scope of the world we are building, the completely new setting, the new gameplay mechanics, and our new characters (both our hero and his supporting cast), we are definitely on track to get the job done and avoid fatigue altogether,” Guesdon added.

Are you confident in Ubisoft's ability to breathe new life into the franchise with Black Flag? Will the new pirate theme be enough to differentiate AC4 from the pack?
