oh and @M, I wish they did AC bi-yearly and then focus on neglected series like Prince of persia, you just have to go down 3/4 of the forums main page to know price of persias all but forgotten.

Well atleast they're asking for fan input. Credit where it's due they say? Although I'm fast getting tired of these yearly sequels..

Annual AC games will be pretty much the norm now , just like AC-B / AC-R to AC3 - Annuals are something to keep the playerbase steady or growing until the next Actual sequel.
If the next game was 2-3 years away too many would've moved on to a different series altogether - many ditched it between AC 1 & 2 .
Just business sense.

I think that definitely happens if they wait too long.
I wouldn't mind if they put out partial AC fillers at 1/2 the price or something at the 1 year stage to just keep us going on something with a 2 yr release if that would help game quality.

Oh & yesterday ghostsniper said that survey was thru Uplay accts. You need to get on there. ?
- - - - -- - - - - - - - - - - - -

I get why they do MP & Co-op, just that plenty of people can't use it or don't want to use it...
I'm fine with yearly releases, so many other series do the same but if it ruins game quality, then I hope they wait an extra year.
They already have this new engine built, I'm expecting less serious bugs & glitches. Alot of people had big problems with their game.

I agree on story being key - ACII & ACB's stories kept me interested thru the entire game. ACIII's so far is really good outside lack of more character bonding & buildup (imo).
Did they wait 2 years for Far Cry 3? I only bought the first one.

Actualy i have done the Survey and yes co op was mentioned but there was nothing about a new game being released next year , the last time i looked Matt Taylor the lead writer for AC3 said 2014 would be the realistic date and it kind of makes sense with all the next generation consoles breaking through.

I'd be highly disappointed if they roll out another game next year, unless they have been developing it since before AC3 was released. Co-op, I don't care, as long as it doesn't affect the single player story adversely. I'd rather them have a separate co-op mode rather than try to shoehorn it into the usual SP mode.

I'm totally ignorant on the subject of Consoles - when you say next gen, do you mean AC in 2 yrs would be on the new Xbox consoles?
If so that would suck. I usually have to wait a long time before I can afford new tech. If that's the case, then I hope they spit out one more AC next year on this Xbox so I can play it
:(

Same here w/ focus on Single Player. When MP crowds die down or whatever, you at least have SP to play. That's most important imo.

@prodigurl Alex Hutchinson Did say that he would consider doing another game with Connor based on fan feed back now that implies to me that beings as Assassins Creed 3 was a Success for many we could see another game next year with Connor ( dont take this for gospel because i am only speculating ) now seeing us the current gen consoles are coming to the end of their lifeline it would make perfect sense for Assassins Creed 4 to be a launch game on the New XBOX and PlayStation. you only have to look at Anvil Next the current hardware is clearly having issue with running it.

If a new Assassins Creed game does come next year i would expect it to be a contimuation of Connors story because Assassins Creed 4 will have be sooo much better than 3 to be considered a sequel and i would expect ubi would want to take their sweet time with it - hence the reason for the survey.

Seriously thou, after every Ac game they have always said they want to take a year break... then they announced revelations... and Ac3... then lied about AC3 taking 3 years to make... im sure they will crank something out by next november, even though they really should take a break

when you say next gen, do you mean AC in 2 yrs would be on the new Xbox consoles?That would entirely depend on whether new consoles would actually be released in the next two years. There're a lot of rumours about them, but no concrete release window for either as of yet.
To be honest, I kinda hope that the next one is on the new consoles. AC3 is pretty much the limit of what these aging ones can do, and as a result, Ubisoft can't improve upon this, as the consoles won't be able to handle it. Of course, it won't be a problem for a couple of more Connor games in the same vein, though, I guess. :p

That makes sense. I assumed by the framerate bugs that it might be too much for these older boxes. I guess that includes PS3's.
Do you have a guestimate about how much a new console will be when it's first released?

I only have one piece of advice for Alex and the next Connor game - HOOD UP. :p

Actualy they started work on AC3 in 2009 when AC2 was launched so they never lied about that - like i said AC4 will be on next gen consoles as Matt Taylor hinted , Alex Hutchinson said he would only do another game with based on fan feedback hence the reason for the survey.

Also Brotherhood and Revelations financed AC3 so we need to keep supporting them.

Not surprised but disappointed. There's no way this series can keep a consistent quality (story and gameplay) with unrelenting yearly releases. ACR showed that. I love this series and I hate this trend because it's going to run it into the ground. It's so painfully obvious these yearly releases weren't planned from the beginning and it's just Ubi milking this franchise for all it's worth. I know I'm not the only one who remembers reading articles where Ubi said there would be no AC game in 2011 and that they would take a break of a few years after AC3.

its not an issue with the hardware... its an issue with the new engine being a barely tested POS,

sure it looks nice, but under the hood in terms of how its systems interact, it is a royal mess... and explains why they have yet to release any detailed specs on it

Edit: also the 3 year lie was exposed by both the series historian and Alex Hutchinson... both saying that the first 2 years of development was only research (implying that only one year was spent on full production)

Hardware has an awful lot to do with it Anvil Next is a complete new engine that was designed using new technology and new methods the current consoles are coming to their end i garantee you that when the new xbox is released and if by example they used anvil next for the new game it would work fine.

Dangerzone50
11-29-2012, 01:27 PM
actually... there is an interesting thread elsewhere on the net (A mod site i frequent, so sadly i cant link to it here) which is beginning to prove that anvil next lifts half of its core running code from the previous iteration of the anvil game engine... hence why they just called it "anvilnext" instead of some new name... a close eye will even see several ezio animations playing on haythem and connor so its a closer relation than they would have us believe, and most of the improvements seem to mainly be new graphics modules (and a few AI improvements as well)

I can see their intention, to start making an engine which shoots ahead of the curve, and can drop right into next gen consoles and look even more amazing... but the curve as of right now is unknown. of all the new and separate modules/systems in this new engine, most of the bugs and issues in AC3 come from the various ways that the different systems can screw with one another... everything looks impressive by itself in a controlled test, but put all of it together in a real play setting, and well... you all saw what happens

Experience the jaw-dropping power of Anvil Next, the all-new engine designed exclusively for Assassin’s Creed III. The team spent three years building this revolutionary system from the ground up, and the results are nothing short of breathtaking.Ouch. They did say it. I thought that "three years" was referring to the game.

you do know that they are making a new Prince of Persia game right, and there are screens of it on the internet. It was showcased behind closed doors last e3


Drop in and drop out co-op is not the way to go Ubisoft, if you want a great co-op, make it as if you were making a SP but for two people. Leave the SP mode, then have a Co-op mode (with either a co-op story or a lot of missions [with some being continuation missions, meaning a mini story within them]) allow us to make our assassin (in small amounts. What i mean is let us pick our assassin from a line of other assassins, pick their clothing, their weapons, etc. And please improve stealth and the difficulty, add an assassin difficulty where you die in a few hits (3 or 4).

Also improve on the bow. Since the next game will be co-op why not let us attach a rope to the arrow and shoot it across to a building and then maybe use it as a zipline. Instead of removing entire features of the game, combine them in new ways.

Well when the game is put together well with a good story I dont mind waiting a couple years for the next title. I just hope the AC series doesnt get released every year like games like CoD where they are released so much the game is boring and old just a money maker for fan boys. Hopefully the AC series does not turn out this way. Im praying

I think ubi are taking the sensible step by delaying it for 2014 because lets face it COD will be dead and buried by the time the new consoles come out, but going by the chatter from the developers i would say that its logical that Assassins Creed 2013 will be with Connor ( i could be wrong but it seems logical )

Actually they do this every year, everyone knew what the new features in Revelations were in December because the exact questions were would you like a hook that sped up free running, and a question related to should the assassin be a new character or Ezio is another country.

They're not asking for fan-input they are just hoping people who respond agree with the decisions that have already been taken.

Unfortunately writing is already on the wall here, they are making a sequel for November 2013. I'm not sure whats worse, the idea of a game coming out on the PS3/360 that late into the cycle or them releasing a title on the new consoles that early into the cycle...neither sounds appealing.

*shrugs* its becoming Episodic, meaning they will continue releasing a new game every year (and every month, as far as dlc is concerned)... no matter what the fan base or sales do in response to any one title, their cash cow has come in and they will keep riding and beating it till it becomes a dead horse... then tease "an epic final chapter" just to hype the sales of that one last game... then revive it a few years later on the next-next generation

The first scenario sounds appealing to me - I doubt I'll be able to get the new console till prices come down on them so I might as well get all I can out of it.

There's an easy remedy so fans don't get burnout - just don't buy the game that year and play it the next year - pretend it's new
:p
By the way, I really get tired of this 'cash cow' labeling. This unfair judgment of their motive as if they don't care about anything but making more $$. - many games come out yearly - somehow Ubi is greedy and evil for it but everyone else isn't.

Yearly cycles are pretty much are pretty much happening, in a recent interview Alex Hutchinson gave that away, and I don't like the idea at all. Alex also said that they're "much better at planning the franchise" which probably means they have the structure and release plans for the next few sequels already sorted.

In December 2012 and November 2011, Ubisoft released two surveys/polls, (see them here: http://www.videogamesblogger.com/2009/06/10/assassins-creed-3-will-see-desmond-become-the-ultimate-assassin.htm)

One thing I don't get though, is that the poll in November 2011 asked about settings in the next AC game:

November 2011 poll: Which setting would you like to see in a sequel?

1) The violent conflicts of the Imperial Dynasties of Medieval China.
2) The advent of the mighty British Empire during Victorian England.
3) The culmination of the Pharaoh reign in Ancient Egypt.
4) The invasion of the Americas by the Spanish Conquistadors.
5) The confrontation between the British Colonists and native Americans during the American revolution of the 18th Century. (The Revelations ending leads to New York, USA)
6) The overthrow of the Tsar Empire by the Communists during the Russian Revolution.
7) The Warlord Battles in Feudal Japan.
8 ) The rise of Caesar’s Empire in Ancient Rome

Why would they talk about the American revolution setting when it was already in development for AC3?

It also makes me think that this new survey is probably for multiple sequels, not just the upcoming one.

The poll is asking what we liked about AC3 what our best points was and low points was and interestling enough it asks what the your best Assassination missions was and it asks you to be very specific , they also ask what would make you buy a new Assassins Creed game and what features you would like to see , obviously most of them are multiple choice questions so ubi have set the options also they present you with a selection of games and ask what ones you own and to rate them and funny enough MW3 and Blackops 2 are amongst the choices !!

@ACfan thats not the poll a choice of setting was not featured in the survey.

Not saying its bad, the difference is that in November 2012 it will have been 7 years since the consoles were out, When San Andreas the greatest technical achievement of the PS2 was released it was 2004. This Generation died last year, Frostbite 2, Creation Engine, Anvilnext are not fit for the 360/PS3 they should be on a PS4/720. Hell even the head of Ubisoft came out earlier this week and said this cycle has damaged the industry. The PS4/720 should have been out last year.

As I said, they never do an actual survey asking for input, all they want to know is how marketable it is and if they've made the right decision. They do this ever year for every AC release since they began these surveys. The next game has already been written, its already in production and it sounds like its going to include Co-op and return to the Revolution they just want to know how accepted that is.

Well, if its on this gen I won't be buying it. My money is being saved for a PS4 or new Xbox. I'm not intending to buy any games next year and this unless its on Vita/PC or a new generation so I won't be buying it.

That was my initial thought, and I also think that it's in full development already. The game after it is probably also in development too.

It does make sense because they started work in AC3 back in 2009 when AC2 was released !

You sure about that? As far as I know, despite the screens that surfaced, Ubisoft never showcased a PoP game. Instead, Ubisoft Montreal's next new big game turned out to be Watch Dogs.

yea there were many articles that said POP was showed behind closed doors at e3

Tuna...no.crust

HAHAHA

The survey asks what people thought about Uncharted 3. Guess Ubisoft is aiming for the next AC to be more of an Uncharted game than an Assassins Creed game.
Because you know, everybody LOVES paying $60 for a movie.

Well, I guess that's that then.

Shaking my head at the "why are they only spending a year developing a game" complaint. They don't make the game within a year. Ubisoft is composed of two different teams that make the AC games. The main group (A team) that did AC1, AC2, and AC3....and then another group (B team) that developed AC:B and AC:R. Ubisoft has even hinted prior to AC3's release that if fan reception of Connor was high that would go along well with their plans for the next game (hint: to feature Connor). AC3.5 has probably been in development sometime after AC:R launched. What do you think the B team has been doing since then? Twiddling their thumbs?

And yay for co-op! It's about time. Hopefully this forces Ubisoft to up the difficulty of AC.

Co-op and another game with Connor would be great. I'm not asking for a trilogy with him, but one more game to fully develop his character. I don't know if it would be a wise idea to create an entirely new character for a game with a 1 year development cycle.

They've mentioned in numerous interviews since February that part of the secondary team jumped onto AC3 after ACB was shipped, and the rest after ACR was shipped, they've all been working on AC3 (both core team and secondary team). I think they've had a whole new team (maybe with a few senior members) working on AC3.5 for probably (like you said) a year.

And why would you want to go there, anyway? Any time frame where automatic firearms existed is a bad bad idea for an AC game. Main reason an all out modern AC won't work either.

NeverThat
11-30-2012, 01:07 AM
Lol, so what's the plan? Make AC4 a co-op / multiplayer game with a campaign tacked on? Why not just make a separate spin-off AC game that is strictly co-op / multiplayer, where you and your friend are new recruits in an assassin brotherhood or even templar recruits on a mission instead of slapping a 4 on the title? Truth be told, I wouldn't mind if Ubi ditched multiplayer altogether let alone adding co-op. In any event, if AC4 is a next gen title, it will be at least a year or 2 after launch before I play it...if it's worthwhile playing. Maybe even longer. I will wait at least a year after launch before even thinking about purchasing a next gen console.

What does Uncharted 3 have to do with AC games? Pretty pathetic that Ubi is trying so hard to cater to everybody copying other popular games. It looks as if Ubi is more interested in popular gaming trends versus taking their time creating a unique and innovative story with a solid SINGLE PLAYER campaign. I'm hoping they're be more to AC4 than graphics, cool kill moves and multiplayer.

I think I must've wasted several hours due to stuff not popping up on the map and various side missions glitching. Ended up having to look at Youtube videos to locate stuff that should be on the map. At least I haven't come across an actual game breaking bug yet.
For a while I thought I won't be able to get 100% when an Assassination target just disappeared and never reappeared until I quit the game and loaded it back up, though.

from what I understand, alot just get it for MP?This is true and just breaks my heart. We'll never have another AC game where the budget was entirely devoted to SP again. :(
At least Ubisoft did the right thing this time without wasting much time/money on MP. Not upgrading MP to AnvilNext was a really great decision. I'm sure not many have even noticed. :p

I can agree with you here, AC1 was about assassinating 9 guys, AC2 was about assassinating 20ish guys (idk the real number but there was a lot), ACB was about fighting a war, ACR was fighting a war, and AC3 was fighting a war. We aren't soldiers, we are assassins. So let us play as such

Sorry, but I really don't buy into the idea that game companies need to keep games coming out on a yearly basis to keep the brand alive. Look at GTA V: by the time it releases, it will have been five years since the last numbered GTA game, but people are already FREAKING OUT over every scrap of news they can find on V. IGN even had an entire week devoted exclusively to GTA news. What I'm getting at is that if you take several years to make a game that's bloody incredible, people aren't going to forget that in 12 months. Hell, even if there had been no Brotherhood and Revelations, I guarantee people would have been drooling over AC3 after three years since AC2. It worries me when they say they're really going for an annual release cycle, because there's only so many little tweaks you can make to an open-world game in less than a year without it becoming stale.

I'm still not sure whether I'd like first person view for an AC game, though. The field of vision is really narrow in first person games, so it takes a lot out of seeing beautifully rendered areas.

I don't see the problem in using Uncharted 3 as inspiration. It's an awesome game, and I'm certain that if they're looking into that, then it's probably for cinematic purposes. Not to mention story and character depth has always been a trademark for the franchise. I think it'd be awesome if the next AC focused more on that, as long as linearity doesn't affect the gameplay too much.

I think if any inspiration is to be taken from Uncharted, it should be in terms of cinematography. Uncharted 3 had some pretty epic scenes in terms of presentation (i.e. the desert walk) but beyond that, I don't want to see any Uncharted influence. Unfortunately, ever since ACR, I think some of the platforming stuff has become more cartoonish and Uncharted-like. The platforming levels had a bit too much of Ezio and Connor falling and getting slammed around with zero injury for my liking.

The platforming levels had a bit too much of Ezio and Connor falling and getting slammed around with zero injury for my liking.

That's what I mean, yeah. Story, character development and general cinematography and presentation were well-done in U3. If Ubisoft will be using ideas from there, that's the place to start.

As for platforming, I don't mind. As long as it's fun and creative, and not repetitive.

I think the problem people, including me, have with mentioning Uncharted is the lack of context on Ubi`s part of what they intend to implement and Linearity is what automatically comes to mind..

Assassins Creed III has had a criminal amount of Linearity in some of it`s Assassination missions..

I'm not implying. I'm saying it straight out. If AC3 is "mindless and linear", you'll have to call 90% of today's AAA games "movies" instead.

1. Dishonored
2. Deus Ex
3. Hitman: Absolution
4. Farcry 3

All AAA, All focused around sandboxes and playstyle choice, all recent entries..ALL encouraging emergent gameplay.

AC3 is a joke thanks to the mission design, the parameters and the insistence of the narrative in cramming Connor into the most Un-Assassin like missions and completely and utterly ****ing the gameplay.

It would've been my GOTY..but NoooOOOoOOoOoooO...lets put Connor on a horse and have give a ride to an annoying and obscure historical figure for the sake of "living the history"

Oh wait it STILL wouldn't have been my GOTY..since technically The Witcher 2 was out on the 360 this year...so yeah..runner up.

You're Welcome.

I don't like that Uncharted question.

Is Ubisoft really planning to make AC even more linear and mindless? Uncharted is a good game but it lacks any kind of gameplay depth
Quoted For The Mother****ing Truth. I'm sorry, but to me Uncharted represents linearity, lack of any freedom, bare-bones gameplay and reliance on cutscene and scripted setpieces to be fun. Style over substance. The only thing that's worth copying from Uncharted is the production value of its cutscenes. NOTHING else.

they are, every AAA game released by a major publisher is dumbed down compared to its predecessor. I can't think of one franchise that has survived this gen. Especially Ubisoft games, Splinter Cell set in the middle east with wallhacks and pointshooting? Come on.

What I'm saying is, AC is miles better compared to that 90%.

Not really, atleast some of the games I'm thinking of have difficulty settings and semi-intuitive controls

As long as the quality is good, I don't care if they release it next year or next decade.

When it comes to AC series, single-player is still more important imo. They should polish that first before anything else.

AC WAS miles better...unfortunately it is just not growing enough in terms of pushing the boundaries of the core gameplay. It is stagnant as of now. I have high hopes for the next game though..since they've established the engine and the tech with this one I feel they can focus on actual gameplay improvements now.
