Ubisoft Could Make Assassins Creed Series a Definite Annual Franchise

By   /   4 years ago

It appears that Ubisoft CEO, Yannis Mallat, is under the impression that the fans are in high demand for the Assassins Creed series to become a proper annual franchise, much like Call of Duty. He believes that the fan demand for the series is so high that it will be very likely to succeed if released every year as long as they maintain the proper quality that fans have come to expect of the series.

Speaking to Eurogamer he said:

No. The players will tell us. Right now there are more and more coming into the franchise, so I don’t see that day.

It’s our breakthrough. When you have quality content, the frequency of coming out with the game is not an issue at all. On the contrary, people expect more and more of that content. So it’s natural to be able to provide that content. The gamers are happy and it’s our job to make them happy.

Assassins Creed series has already become an annual release with 4 games released in 4 years with Assassins Creed 4 being the 5th entry in the series for 5 years in a row now. I think Ubisoft shouldn’t ignore the buggy launch of Assassins Creed 3 which made it clear that the game had been rushed past development. It would be wise of Ubisoft to learn from their past mistakes before dwelling into such thoughts.

Do you believe that the CEO is right? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
