Ubisoft Has No Problem With Assassin’s Creed As An Annual Series
If it wasn’t official already, Assassin’s Creed is an annual series of games much like Call of Duty. Ubisoft Montreal boss Yannis Mallat says that he doesn’t believe gamers are turned off by the idea of playing a new Assassin’s Creed game every year. Judging from the sales of Assassin’s Creed 3, he’d be right, given that it had surpassed that of its predecessors—selling 12 million units since its release.
Eurogamer asked Mallat whether he thinks players are bored by the series. “No,” he replied. “The players will tell us. Right now there are more and more coming into the franchise, so I don’t see that day.”
“It’s our breakthrough. When you have quality content, the frequency of coming out with the game is not an issue at all. On the contrary, people expect more and more of that content,” Mallat added. “So it’s natural to be able to provide that content. The gamers are happy and it’s our job to make them happy.”
Ubisoft has released a new Assassin’s Creed game every year since 2009. The next title in the series, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, launches on October 29.
