Sega CEO Hajime Satomi says he wants to improve the quality of their games moving forward. That could mean a lot of things. It's nice to hear, but what they do next with their games is the real answer.
Ubisoft: We’ll Continue To Release Assassin’s Creed Games Every Year
Ubisoft’s vice president Lionel Raynaud, in a recent interview with Edge, revealed that Ubisoft still plans on churning out Assassin’s Creed games on an annual basis, and that it is still not ready to entirely abandon last-gen consoles.
“We will have games for PS3 and 360 for this year and probably the years after,” Raynaud said. “We want to be able to provide games to people who are playing on these consoles.”
Raynaud talked about the series’ immense popularity, and the vast amount of Assassin’s Creed games available on store shelves every year.
“We are able to offer people a new Assassin’s Creed every year because they want Assassin’s Creed’s every year. As long as this is true we would be very stupid not to satisfy this need, but it puts a lot of pressure on us to create something that will never disappoint.”
Raynaud’s comments come after Ubisoft’s announcement of Assassin’s Creed Unity, an 18th century Paris entry in the series that will only release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. A last-gen title in the series, entitled Comet, will also release at the same time frame as Unity and will feature a North American setting.
