Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag Trailer Talks Multi-Studio Development
In the latest trailer for the upcoming game; Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, Ubisoft shows its viewers the trials, tribulations and rewards of working on a project that is being build with collaborative efforts of several studios around the globe.
It is no secret that in the recent years, the Assassin’s Creed series has left sole embrace of its creator; Ubisoft Montreal, and as the scale and the scope of each subsequent game increased, so did the number of studios working on them.
Now, in an effort to keep up an annual release cycle, the Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is being developed simultaneously by seven different Ubisoft studios, each functioning in a separate location around the world, working together to portray the Golden Age of Pirates.
As the new trailer shows; keeping hundreds of employees separated by thousands of miles on the same track is a tall order, however the studio management seems confident that every one of their global staff is fully committed to the concept and vision of the game.
Whether that cohesion has actually been achieved with effect is the one thing that will ultimately determine whether Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag turns out to be a critical success or failure.
The forth numbered entry into the Assassin’s Creed series, Black Flag is scheduled for a 29th October 2013 release on the current gen consoles and on a later date for the next gen consoles like PS4 and Xbox One.
