Delaying Assassin’s Creed 4 because of boredom
As we eagerly wait for the arrival of Assassin’s Creed 3 recent news on the idea of delaying AC4 because of boredom could be something that may not be entirely welcomed by fans of the series. The expectation now is that a new installment will come out annually and this could become tiresome, but if people enjoy it, there is no reason to slow down.
With no news on an actual release date for the next-gen consoles, Assassin’s Creed 4 could be a supposed title to come around the same time, with Ubisoft concentrating on bringing new life into the series. Passion For Games asks whether Assassin’s Creed needs to take a break before people get bored, and the declining sales numbers of the spin-off sequels in 2010 and 2011 could be a signal that things are slowing down.
This year we will get a proper sequel to 2009’s Assassin’s Creed 2 with more improvements and a multiplayer mode there is a feeling that we are overdosing on this franchise over the last decade. It has been mentioned that a new angle to embrace the next gen would be the ideal stomping ground for Assassin’s Creed to have a bit of time off, coming back to a scenario where absence makes the heart grow fonder.
It may be good for a franchise to be missed but we cannot see Ubisoft relaxing their reign on such a popular series, and to be fair listening to some gamers’ suggestions on what location should appear in the next game there is so much more that could be implemented to the world of Assassin’s Creed. Some may feel that more time between games would allow developers to create better quality games and other franchises should also consider this.
Only yesterday, we wrote about the amount of background accuracy that is involved in Assassin’s Creed 3 and Ubisoft’s source of information being the American Revolution historical records. Surely if a game is doing well developers should continue to bring out new titles. What is your opinion on whether Assassin’s Creed needs a break?
