View Full Version : Ubi lists their five major releases for FY 15, no mention of Comet

Yves has spoken (about FY 15): "The year's performance will be led by five games - Assassin's Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, Just Dance, The Crew and Watch Dogs,"

So does this mean Comet won't happen? Hard to imagine an AC game not being one of the major titles.

Hopefully.

However, would Ubisoft really risk losing out on last-gen players' cash? I don't think so, they were probably just keeping it under wraps. Also, remember a statement from another exec stating that Ubi would never abandon their last-gen players? So I still believe we're getting two games this year - to my dismay.

If Comet turns out to be a game in Ancient Rome I'm all for it. If it's that Shay thing with New York... Well basically I'd hope that instead of it being Assassin's Creed: Comet, I hope it starts a Templar series that's basically linear Assassin's Creed.

Seriously, if Assassin's Creed was a linear game they would be able to take better advantage of historical events as well as historical buildings.

Yeah those are good points, maybe it will happen after all then lol.

I think Sushi made a thread once about a linear AC and said something similar.

just alternate linear and open-world games. would still have an "Assassin's Creed" game each year but there would be major differences between them each year which would be great.

I'm really hoping that they atleast mention something about AC Comet at E3... the suspense is getting to me :(

Very true.

Or maybe it's just too early to announce anything yet..

I have to admit, you would think that Comet would be more likely to be a leader in Ubi's lineup than The Crew. I would say Just Dance as well, but I'm pretty sure that's actually a top seller.

Comet might not be considered a Major release, just a simple annual release with very little work done in the case of a theoretical AC3 Pre-Sequal that certainly makes sense given just the pure amount of resources that could be reused from AC3 and 4.

by "simple annual release" I hope you are comparing Comet with AC3: Liberation and Freedom Cry and not ACB, ACR, AC3 and AC4

I don't see how this confirms anything one way or another. It might not be considered a "major" release. It was pretty clear what was happening if the rumours were true; Unity was getting all the love and ambition, while Comet was basically just a cash grab.

In any case, I hope Ubisoft came to their senses and decided to ditch the "AC's on last gen for the next several years" plan. If Comet really was about the time of Caesar (that was the most likely theory IMO) I'd love to see that game see the light of day on next-gen. But I'll be FURIOUS if they decided to keep the cross-gen plan and simply downgraded Unity to make it viable as a last-gen game.

There was a thread on the front page of our forums that had the link I put in my post, confirming that a last-gen AC is in development, while we were carrying on this thread like it had been cancelled.

It just means they dont expect it to do better than the 5 listed... aka its going to be ACB without ezio carrying it...

Oki-doki that settles things :). It's still a bit strange to me. The last-gen only installbase is huge so I think Comet could do quite well sales wise. I also think there's a good chance it will be more enjoyable than Unity, just as Brotherhood/AC4 were more enjoyable than AC3 imo. Weird if they would kind of send it out to die.

Funny, the article opens for a few seconds and then vanishes. I managed to read it when it was online though, it just say the conference call mentioned that AC will be coming for old gen systems "in the foreseable future". As far as I could understand, Gametrailer took this as a confirmation of Comet.

So if Comet isn't a "major" game, I guess it will be something like a mini episode. Maybe similar to Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes?

Well I certainly hope we can't finish it in 10 minutes... :rolleyes:

I see what you mean though, a cut-price game (maybe around £25/$30) with less content than regular titles - maybe a 5 or 6 hour story, smaller maps and stuff. I could see that happening.

I'd be up for that again, most refined experience of the generation.

It could also be that Yves didn't want to reveal Comet, but then he felt like he had to answer the investors.

Anyway I think a mod could LOCK THIS THREAD :)

I hope Comet will happen and I hope it turns out to be more experimental rather than another mainstream location/event. I think they didnít mention Comet either because itís not happening, because itís not yet announced, or because they donít wanna count 2 games of the same franchise.
