Three Assassin’s Creed games in development

Ubisoft pumping out the hooded assassins.

Ubisoft is currently developing three titles in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, company CEO Yves Guillemot said at E3.

“We are making sure the teams who are creating the different iterations have enough time – two years, three years, so that they can take risk and they can change the concept enough so that it can be appealing and fresh,” Guillemot told Kotaku.

Presumably, one of the games is this year’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. As for the other two, it’s possible Assassin’s Creed V is already in development and perhaps another handheld spin-off similar to Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation.

    I barely played them all and I’m already tired of the series

    • Budgiecat

      I have yet to play one other than the DS & PSP ones

  • Ace

    Assassin’s Creed: Call of Duty edition.

  • $18114340

    looks like ass creed got the ubishaft.

  • GetOffMy_Lawn

    So sad to see what was once such an original, energetic, fun franchise be undermined by its owners’ desire for money.

    • DichaTesoro

      Nearly every game series out there.

    I dont get why everybody is crying about annual releases of AC. Every AC titel(except the ones on PSP, DS, VITA) were great games. THe ending of AC 3 was a huge let down though…
    I like the fact that I dont have to wait 2-3 years for another installment in this great franchise. And since every titel is 2-3 years in development Im cool with that too

    • OverlordZetta

      Agreed, though admittedly Liberation is actually my first go at the series. There’s nothing inherently WRONG with games having annual releases, and the more content the better, right?

    • Elvick

      I think AC3:L was a great game.

      Why people overlook Uncharted’s similar faults and consider it great on Vita, but act like Liberations is Sonic ’06 is beyond me.

  • kickersu18

    I really like the Liberation on the Vita! Great game with some problems.

    • Cry_Zero

      For a first try on vita, it was good. But the story was terrible. And the performance too

  • Zackasaur

    Annual releases are fine if you’ve got the development teams to support it, so that each gets the time and resources they need!

    This series has upheld phenomenal quality. Thus, I’m all too eager to buy another every year. In fact, if they’ll make another Vita game, I’d love to buy two. :3

    • xMCXx

      Wasn’t the third game a bug-ridden mess?
      I also don’t want shitty filler games like Revelations.

      Also, the story of AC is getting ridiculous.

      • Raiyu

        They really shouldn’t have tried to connect the plot togethers like they did with 1-3.

        I think the franchise wouldn’t get as much hate as it gets and would do better if each were a standalone installment or weren’t linked to Desmond. Because honestly, I didn’t play the games for Desmond’s story. I played it just to play as a different assassin in a different time period in history.

        • xMCXx

          Yeah, I think so, too.
          At first, the Templar – Assassins story was intriguing, but then they introduce Aliens or some shit and it got way too convoluted.
          Just let me play an Assassin. xD

      • Cry_Zero

        Actually Revelations was the AC game with the best story…(in my opinion)

      • Elvick

        The majority of people give Bethesda passes on their bug ridden messes.

        Hell, open world games in general tend to get passes on it. Except I see a lot of people bitching about it with AC. Probably just so they can have some “valid” reason to talk shit on the series.

        If you don’t like AC, don’t play it.

        • xMCXx

          I sure as hell don’t give Bethesda a free pass on their bug ridden games.
          I don’t give anyone a free pass.

          • Elvick

            Hence why I didn’t say, “YOU GIVE BETHESDA A FREE PASS STOOPIDFACE” and said, “The majority of people”.

            Because the majority of people do give them a pass. Since literally every game they release is riddled with bugs (the nature of the beast… in other words bound to happen with the types of games they make). Yet people always buy them in droves and they always do well critically and have tons of happy fans.

            Plenty of happy AC fans too.

            • xMCXx

              That’s because people are dumb.
              I know I’m not buying a Elder Scrolls game at release. ever.
              And not for consoles.

              If you are contempt with their bugs, then they won’t change anything.

  • OverlordZetta

    I’m okay with this. I have to assume that at least one is a Vita title, which is doubly good, so that leaves one shrouded in mystery. 3DS? iOS?

    Honestly guys, nothing bad about annual releases if its a good series. I kind of wish more series would go that route. Really, what’s bad about a solid series getting a solid release every year? This “oh there’s too much of a good thing so now it sucks” mentality is just silly – I’d kill for some franchises to get this kind of attention.

    But I guess I’m weird in that I like to actually PLAY (not complain and only complain about) video games, making me part of a dying breed it seems.

    • DichaTesoro

      I like your opinion here, man!

  • confused_wanderer

    This is getting crazy, the last one I played was 2 and I loved it. It’s overwhelming just thinking of getting back into the series. Have to play brotherhood, revelations, 3 and soon to be 4. Sheesh talk about a lack of time

  • dzeidzei

    I wonder what that Rising Phoenix stuff for the Vita was about. I see E3 went by and we got no mentions of it.

  • Lynx

    Anyone else remember when it was just supposed to be a trilogy? I sure don’t.

  • SuperLuigi

    I am such a hypocrite…I was gonna bash that there are 3 in devopment, but, I am planning on buying all 3 zeldas that are in development right now. I will try all 3 Acreeds if they feel different and not just add ons.

  • kenshee

    Ok, so not too long ago I finished AC3 and I was very happy I finally caught up for once.

    It’s actually not that good that I was THAT happy to be done XD

    The gameplay can get frustrating for me at hard parts and boring at any other time…
    The stories always have cool moments, but usually a ton of boring stuff as well.

    And god the sidequests…
    I’m just happy I sort of started ignoring them in AC3 because there was no point whatsoever anymore, no real money/equipment upgrade system so it was best to just focus on the story and be done with it. (in my experience)

    Also, the current time story? I don’t get it at all, whatsoever, anymore. (or I get it, and it’s just not that … good)
    And I get the feeling the characters sometimes don’t either, which should make it better, but it makes it worse XD

    • Zero

      I really thought the best stuff was the naval missions. I thought those were really fun.

      I couldn’t help but feel a bit underwhelmed with Connor. I thought Haytham was much more interesting.

  • Elvick

    Another Vita AC please and thank you.

  • Raiu

    I’ll be happy if there’s a sequel to Liberation on Vita… Great game despite it’s problems and performance…

    Note: Aveline will be on AC4: Black Flag as Playstation exclusive playable character….

  • Zero

    For everyone who liked Liberation –

    Aveline will have exclusive missions in AC IV : Black Flag. These missions are exclusive to the Playstation versions of the game.

    They have only revealed 3 exclusive missions so far. I’m not sure if Ubisoft plans to make a sequel on the Vita or not. I think it’s good that Ubisoft hasn’t forgotten about Aveline.

    Some interesting details about AC IV …

    – You’ll be playing in the present as an employee of Abstergo Entertainment.

    – You’ll have a job at the company. A desk. Your own computer.

    – This will allow you to dive into the past of legendary assassins like Assassin’s Creed IV lead, Edward Kenway.

    – There will be modern era gameplay. The devs aren’t talking about it much currently.

    – In parts of the game, characters will talk to you as if you’re in the world.( I presume this is in the modern era stuff.)

    – The developers have confirmed that other Assassins will be mentioned in the game.

    – The developers would not discuss the possibility of missions that could feature past characters. (Such as Ezio.)

    (Source is the internet. Various interviews floating around the web.)

    • Elvick

      I’m glad Aveline is getting some more attention. I think she’s great. I wish that Liberation had had more character development for her though.

    • Cry_Zero

      Sounds good, but i dont like aveline. She couldve been amazing, but they did not bring out her full potential in liberation. And think I did not even understand the “true” ending in Liberation….
