Ubisoft knows how Assassin’s Creed franchise will end
The developer of the popular Assassin’s Creed franchise has confirmed that they know how the series will end, though the upcoming Assassin’s Creed 4 will not be the final game in the series.
Ashraf Ishmail, game director for Assassin’s Creed 4, stated, “We have multiple development teams, then we have the brand team that sits on top and is filled with writers and designers concerned with the series’ overall arc. So there is an overall arc, and each iteration has its place inside this.”
He goes on to state, “We have an idea of where the end is, what the end is. But of course Yves [Guillemot, Ubisoft’s overall boss] announced we are a yearly title, we ship one game a year. So depending on the setting, depending on what fans want, we’ve given ourselves room to fit more in this arc. But there is an end.”
So, it seems that the number of remaining Assassin’s Creed games depends (somewhat) on what the gamers want. If they want more, the company will squeeze in a bit more to the arc, but if they want it to end, it seemingly will soon.
What will gamers and Ubisoft decide for the franchise? Will we get more or fewer Assassin’s Creed games? And which would you prefer?
