Assassins Creed Rumored for Egyptian Setting and Slowdown in Yearly Release

Discussion in 'GBAtemp & Scene News' started by chavosaur, Jan 5, 2016.


    Could Triple A devs finally be feeling the same fatigue us gamers have felt from yearly releases of the same old games every year?

    That possibility is looking likely, thanks to some recent leaked information from Kotaku:

    The article goes on to suggest this years big Ubisoft title could be replaced with Watch Dogs 2 over the annual Assassins creed, allowing the hunger for the franchise to build up a bit and revitalize some interest while innovating in gameplay and improving the games overall potential.

    What are your thoughts on this new information? Are you happy we may go a year without an Assassins creed game? Could we see similar action from say, Call of Duty?

    More development time is always better. If it's true, it's a good decision. There was no need to try pound out so many games so quickly and just build infamy from buggy broken messes. Granted, Syndicate seems to have been received fairly well (haven't gotten around to playing it myself).

    We live in a day and age where there's fuckloads of good games to play. Quality over quantity.

    Kotaku be like, "Why do game devs hate us? It's because we does good journalism!"
    I like the idea, kind of sounds like they are bringing it back to it's Prince of Persia roots.

    well of course they're tired, they've been for years and we all know it. that industry works understaffed and stressed beyond believe, in addition to being pretty much just one flop away from bankruptcy every time. even completing and delivering a good game doesn't guarantee you stay alive to make more.

    i'd much rather think that they slow down assassins creed, cause people are getting tired of it, sales are slowing and they already put too much money into this empires to completely halt the project. so they're slowing it down (and most likely slim down the team too)

    Finding that out myself.
    It's great they're giving more time to develop, that's always good. Syndicate was basically a Unity 2 and was boring af, for someone who played Unity that is.
    But I don't see how any new AC title could improve upon the best AC games, the series needs something new. (and not just a new maneuvering attack on titan ripoff mechanic, I'm looking at you ropelauncher)

    I always play them every year and do every last thing in the game. I enjoy them, but after ac3, they just abandoned their modern day story line. Oh crap, did we write ourselves into a corner? Let's just never ever speak of any of this ever again.

    Also, isn't Egypt rumored like, every single year? Eventually it has to be right.

    I'm the same I've platted the last 3 in a row despite not really being into the series lol.
    I'd like Japan, please give us Japan with awesome new combat engine.
    Could have naval too, like Red Cliff!

    I'm still waiting for feudal Japan, which seems like the most obvious setting, before I get back on board. I stopped caring when they killed off their main character without resolving anything.

    I only played Black Flag, and loved it. It was my first Assassin Creed game. After that, I tried the Murrikan Assassin Creed, and got bored with it after a few hours, and uninstalled it.

    After that, Watch Dogs came out, and I was pretty hyped, so I pirated the PC version, it ran like ass. So, I uninstalled it like an hour later.

    that's pretty much exactly my experience with it too. black flag is just so amazing. the next game "rogue" is like black flag but smaller/shorter.
