Edge Magazine did an interesting interview with Ubisoft’s Vice President of Creative Lionel Raynaud on the weekend, primarily related to the
next current generation of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and Ubisoft’s plans for the previous generation.
More importantly however, Raynaud explained why Assassin’s Creed was a yearly franchise – and the answer shouldn’t be particularly surprising:
“We are able to offer people a new Assassin’s Creed every year because they want Assassin’s Creed every year. As long as this is true we would be very stupid to not satisfy this need, but it puts a lot of pressure on us to create something that will never disappoint.”
Which, frankly, makes sense from a business kind of view (although not the view I would expect from the ‘Vice President of Creative’.) Even my four year old nephew loves Black Flag (don’t worry, his motor skills keep him away from violence and limit him to sailing my ship into islands.) And if they are all as great as Black Flag, then I would be pumped. If we have to sit through an Assassin’s Creed 3 or three (admittedly good) variations on Assassin’s Creed 2 every time though, I might pass.
