View Full Version : When will Ubisoft let go of Assassin's Creed?

Apologies if this is already a thread.

So this is something that has been on my mind a lot lately. Currently, as much as I love AC, I think that dropping it wouldn't really bother me too much. I've played enough, and my enthusiasm for the series has certainly reached its peak. From what I have gathered, with every new instalment, the once beloved series is receiving more and more negative feedback, so much so that AC is now seen by the majority of the gaming community as a 3rd person COD replica. Personally, i'd be happier if Ubi dropped the IP now and preserved some dignity. AC is my favourite gaming franchise, i don't want it to die being seen as some disease in gaming history. An example of 'what not to do' for other developers.

So my question is, when will Ubisoft decide that enough is enough and that it is time to drop Assassin's Creed?

Perhaps once they have found a suitable replacement? AC is Ubisoft's MVP. Its the buffer against poor sales of other franchises. Ubisoft can trust AC to save them when new Ip's let them down. Letting it go would result in a significant drop in annual sales. So perhaps Ubisoft are waiting for the 'next AC'. Something that triggers excitement in the community and something that can be milked for a couple years. Im sure they had hope in Watch Dogs to fill these shoes, but that they received pretty poor feedback. I feel like this could have been done with the naval franchise that a lot of fans wanted. A separate pirate game utilising the same naval mechanics. Perhaps too late now.

Or maybe Ubisoft have a certain amount or list of settings and time periods that they wish to explore before they relinquish AC. For example, once they create games in Egypt, Japan, Australia and Scandinavia they will be happy to end the franchise? Not sure about that one. Or maybe they just have a story they wish to tell. They want to conclude the Assassin/Templar war, seal up the modern day storyline and close off any remaining plot holes before they drop the franchise.

So what do you guys think? Do you want AC to end? And under what possible circumstances do you think that Ubisoft would drop AC? Despite all of the amazing memories, fun, emotion and moments that AC has provided me with, I feel that everything has to end at some point.

"Die a hero or live long enough to become a villain."
Incredibly cheesy, but I feel it applies here.

When it stops making bank

Joking aside, AC isn't like a normal being-and-end franchise. It's like nintendo IPs. There is no real end. There's a timeline, but the idea is to make each installment innovative and fresh. It's not a franchise that is meant to end. At least not now, anyway.

And there's nothing wrong with that as long as quality and innovation is retained.

That's pretty much impossible now, since if they drop NOW, it'll be seen as such and if it drops later it'll STILL be seen as such.

To be honest, I don't get this mentality. If you don't like, then drop it. If it's selling, it'll keep getting made. It's quite selfish to call for it to be stopped just because YOU want to.

I don't think they should drop it entirely, but not release one every year. Let everyone salivate over the next one. Build up hype for it, let people get anxious for it. Its the same thing with your favorite food. Let's take oreos for example, if you have oreos everyday, you'll eventually start losing interest in them. However, if you only have them once in a while, you never stop really enjoying them.

I think thats the problem with the AC series. We're becoming numb to it. We need time to digest and move on. Then we'll want another one. This also takes pressure off the developers, they can further innovate the games and try out new things and see if they'll work. Take Kingdom Hearts for example. I've been waiting years for Kingdom Hearts 3 to come out. While, technically, there have been other KH games released, none of them have been as big as KH 1 and 2. When you talk to someone who's a fan of KH, you can see the excitement in their eyes over the prospect of it being released.

I used to be the same way with AC, but now i'm starting to grow a little tired of it. I want the series to continue, but I really don't want to see any AC game after Victory for some time... Maybe instead of releasing a new AC game every year, how about doing small events in the current game. Or maybe do a small DLC that adds onto the story. Something that'll make people keep playing the current AC game.

Honestly I don't really care how the internet gaming community sees AC. There are very few game series that incorporate a historical setting, so I don't want AC to go anywhere just because some people on internet forums and communities have gotten a stick up their *** about Ubisoft in general. I am more than happy with AC continuing to be a yearly franchise as long as they make sure those releases are more polished than Unity at launch, which was likely an anomaly due to all of the new tech and systems being introduced.

It's really reactionary to say that each game is receiving progressively more negative feedback, or whatever you said. This time last year people were saying the series stock was high and on the up and up. One bad year does not a series make.


As for the answer to your question, no, absolutely not. AC is the only game in town for it's genre-the ability to freely explore an open world all throughout various time periods that aren't explored in other games really. The Renaissance, the Crusades, the American Revolution, etc etc. All these are wonderful moments in history that I wish I could go and visit and be a part of and that as far as I know I would never get to experience. But the AC series offers a little taste of it. So no. I hope they keep making games until I've seen all of history. I just hope they have the smarts to take the series back to what made it successful so that it can keep going and showcasing all those wonderful time periods in history.

I have my opinion, I've expressed it, but that doesn't mean i want to enforce it on other users or call for direct response from ubisoft.Im not expecting Ubisoft to drop AC on my behalf, that would be ludicrous.

As I stated, I agree to a certain extent. I don't want to see the series end just yet, but I would prefer if they let us fully enjoy the latest AC game. With the exception being Unity >.>.

I want to get every bit out of the game before i go on to the next one. I want more DLC to expand the story and environment. I want new missions being released on a weekly or monthly basis. I want to fully enjoy the game I have, before trading it in for the next one. WIth their current system, its next to impossible to really enjoy the AC game fully before the next one comes out.

I think they could make more money if they were to hash out more DLC content that would expand the story. I know DLCs are not very popular, but I do believe it would help the game out. Well thats my opinion anyways...

Speaking seriously, Imo it'll be perfect if they switched releases between AC and Watch_Dogs. But it's not gonna happen cause AC needs to be there for holiday sales it seems.

Concerning COD comparisons I've never been into that series and still bought one last year cause exoskeletons and cyberpunk. Yeah, it's a stupid reason but I'd expect a lot of regular players to buy AC games down the line the same way in case they like the setting/protagonist/new gameplay gimmick etc.

AC has the selling point of diff time periods.

There are only so many cool places hacking could take place. Chicago, Tokyo, etc

Eventually the settings will feel same-y and the only real selling point would be the limited hack mechanics and the plot

and we all know how Ubi has been handling plots recently

So basically a fancy way of saying stop annual releases right? Because then I agree. Im not sure about new missions every week, but I agree about more DLC story content. Especially if Ubi are going with the one character per game system. Just a bunch of DLC can help flesh out a character and develop them where they need developing. Even cutscenes in side missions would be great. Although i feel that annual releases is a whole different topic altogether.

Yea annual releases are going to leave the game feeling stale after awhile... What i meant about weekly missions is to go back to the AC Initiates website and have challenges or missions to do every week or month. Something to entice the gamers to go back to the game and try to beat it.

I actually quite liked those. They were in AC4 right? The hard part is providing a sufficient reward for completing these challenges without locking content for the players who can't access initiates. But, essentially I agree, i would certainly go on unity more if the challenges were there. Now that I've got platinum, I see no reason to go back on it.

Well, my apologies then. I just run into the logic of "i don't like it, so kill it" too many times. I definitely agree that it needs a breather, a year or two off.

No worries, Its pretty understandable. And yeah, I think I'd be satisfied with a year or two off. Hopefully that would give Ubisoft the time to take a good look at the direction of the series and where they want it to go. I'd imagine they could also generate a bunch of hype upon return as well.

Exactly!!! The series is starting feel stale because we don't have any time in between the games to take a real breather.

12 is long, but they need to make each section longer. Give more depth to each section. I could write a 1000 page book, but each page only has 1 word doesn't make it much of a book. They need to add to the substance. Which i think is hard for them to do when they have to make sure they have a game released every year.

Honestly, I do not have a problem with yearly releases. For example, both Brotherhood and Black Flag are both beloved entries in the series, and yet were both annual releases. I think the fall in quality can be ascribed this time as we had two short games instead. And I think if you were to add the single player content of Rogue to Unity, you would end up with the normal 25 - 30 hours of content that we expect.

That I feel is the problem, they can do a substantial amount of content each year, but in this case we got forced into paying out twice as much for the same amount of content. Hopefully with Victory we will revert back to the sole substantial release like Black Flag, and with only one game to bug fix, hopefully QA will be better too.

AC isn't going to die anytime soon. Ubisoft's marketing department is pretty good, even with Unity's launch people are still going to buy Victory and other upcoming AC games.
AC will only die when, just like somebody else said, it stops making money.

AC? To stop making money? Naw.

I don't want to see the series go away. I've enjoyed most of the games tremendously. I'm very attuned to the open worlds and the ways to traverse them that AC1 pioneered. I can't get enough of that, as long as it's done right. By that I mean what I get to do in these grand settings, and how freely I can go about it. Unity, for all its problems, is a step in the right direction. I hope the negativity surrounding the botched launch and the problems caused by pushing against the tech limits doesn't detract from future installments in the series.

If that's the case, then instead of saying "I wouldn't mind if it ended", why don't you STOP playing the game? It's quite contradictory of what you're saying. Asking when will they stop and you wouldn't mind but then contiue to play with each new installment.

That's what I find hilarious about your OP. Lol.

What dos it matter what others thought? If you're bored of it, don't play. There's lots of titles out there to replace it with. And I for one love that a new game comes out every year, even though i didn't enjoy unity.

And I don't understand why people continue to say that they should stop the annual releases. The games are not made annually though. These are games they are work on for years. It's just that they do them while doing others and release them when they are ready. I find it funny when people say these game shouldn't come or annually and should be every 2 or three years. There's a solution for all, don't play them annually then. Problem solved and let others that enjoy the annual iteration be happy too. :)

What you're saying makes complete sense, I totally understand. Its more to do with my personal faults and dilemmas to be honest. AC is my favourite franchise, it holds a very special place in my heart. As selfish as it is, I just don't want people to hate something that I hold dear. Its really just a individual flaw, where i get really concerned about what OTHERS think. You could say i have weak opinions I guess. If I see a bunch of people bashing on AC, i'll get worked up and protective. If i stop playing the games, Im still going to be conscious of the hate thats occurring. Retiring from the series isn't going to prevent other people from bashing it. So yes, its very selfish and i don't expect Ubisoft to stop producing AC because I said so. Its not even within the realms of imagination, I just wanted to see if anyone could relate.

So thats the main problem, its more of a flaw in my personality or mental strength. I get too worked up by what others think xD

I hope it odesnt, at least not now that we have an upgraded engine and despite what many people say Unity is one of the best AC in terms of fluidity of the character and richness of the enviroment

I think that as long as we have history, the AC series will not stop, not for a while anyway.

There are so many stories that can be told/learnt from history, and I guess it depends on the stories they do want to tell, along with the "other story" behind it.

Either that or when they realize that fans aren't gonna keep putting up with broken promises and the money stops flowing :rolleyes:

I don't know, there's more than one way to hack... Ctos only made it easier... And if deals like with abstergo entertainment is being made else where... It'll be ctos almost everywhere...

The assassins could use their aid and experience...

Hold up hold up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Lets give Watch Dogs time to grow before we go merging it with Assassins Creed, ok?

Trying to merge W_D and AC would be jumping the shark for both franchises. It would mean Ubi has no faith in W_D's ability to stand on its own, so they will treat it as a tie-in for their most popular series. How different would AC have been had they kept it as a Prince of Persia title, as was the original plan?

Probably would've had a lot better Unity >.>

Speaking of Prince of Persia. When are they bringing it back? PoP was an awesome game!!! I want PoP back T_T

No Prince of Persia
