IGN has reported that the developer sent out a questionnaire to series fans asking them what things they would want in the next game. Also, the survey posed another, bigger question: would you like to have a game that is pirate based but not Assassin’s Creed?
Now what does this mean? I see that they are rethinking their options. Probably they think that its time they give a new touch to the pirate based games. Do you?
Nevertheless, a couple of other questions asked refer to cooperative multiplayer naval combat by asking fans whether they would like to “sail and fight with my friends” and “sail and fight with other players.” This one was probably a no brainer, I expected the game to introduce naval based co-op.
Another question asked “what would be the most important elements among these below?” and the choices given included ships, hideouts, customizable pirate characters, additional activities at sea or land and interestingly a deeper economy.
Lastly, fans were asked what they would love to see in Assassin’s Creed 5 giving an option to have a new modern day hero, like Desmond’s narrative arc. Of course the survey also asked about what improvements would you like in the gameplay as well as the historical setting.
