Having a chat with CVG at Gamescom, Assassin’s Creed III director Alex Hutchinson has defended Ubisoft’s decision to release the franchise annually. “The way we see Assassin’s Creed 3 now is as a franchise, like Mario or Resident Evil, that will have its ups and downs. It wasn’t the original plan to be an ongoing series, no, but it became the plan,” he has said, adding, “Since when is something less amazing if you get a new one every year? If Breaking Bad was shown twice a week I’d watch it twice a week. If Radiohead put out an album every six months I’d gladly buy one every six months.”
“But if you can keep a series interesting and fresh,” he concluded, “then I don’t see why it shouldn’t go on.”
