I'm a real developer from Ubisoft Montreal Studios. I've been worknig since the first Assassin's Creed. And I can confirm that the other 4chan user falsely claiming to be a developer was lying about the rumor that there will be no Assassin's Creed in 2016.
We already have an Assassin's Creed game 40% ready in development that's due to 2016 release. Exact release date has not been decided. We still have a lot to do. This AC game will be set in Rome, Antioch and many other explorable locations, where we play in the footsteps of Marcus Junius Brutus. The game is set between 68BC and 49BC. Events include the fall of Seleucid Empire, the assassination of Aretas III, Lutatius Catulus, Battle of Pistoria and so many more.
The game will have on foot and naval combat. Horses and boats are back as well. And naval battle is much more enhanced this time. We also have a lot of unique features in this game. This is our most ambitious project ever, and I can promise that you've never seen ANYTHING like this. This is a totally different game. The entire assassin and templar ideology was different and they were just in their early phases of development. This is also the most dark and gritty game we've developed in years.
The historical side of the game will explore on the dark mysteries of the Shroud of Eden that was never known. The modern day arc will remain hidden for now, but we'll provide more details in the coming months. Expect more details around April. And you can screencap this whole thread because unlike the other 4chan user, I'll be back after March. Do NOT thank me. It was never my intention, but I couldn't stand while some nobody makes false claims about our hard work.
How does it feel to watch the series you have created become objectively worse with every release?
Is it like having a retarded child? Where you love them at first...but now you just pray for someone to kill them to release you from your hell?
Same way i feel about COD, Halo, FF, Pokemon, and most recently, the Souls games. Though, cautiously optimistic about DaS3. BB didn't do anything for me, but i didn't hate like DaS2
Man I remember when the first assassins creed came out I just WISHED for a sequel, and fuck, look what we got. Guess you should be careful for what you wish for. Honestly the series should have ended after 2, or it should have atleast had a 3 or 4 year gap between the games. Anyway op, I don't know if you're really from Ubisoft, but I think its odd that someone from Ubisoft would browser this cancer of a website. Makes me skeptical.
Kotaku never had journalists who had our info. The Syndicate leak was passed through Kotaku that's why they managed to post that leak over the internet. But Kotaku took that advantage to fool gamers in future. Plus, we never hand target footage to a random insider in our studio.
I haven't worked on Syndicate, but everyone liked it. So I don't think our series is failing. Plus, majority of our fans love playing AC every year. It's not like we're making one game in one year. Each game takes at least 2 years for development. Our upcoming game had seen 5 years of development with a totally new engine. I'm sure you'll enjoy the game when it comes out.
>We already have an Assassin's Creed game 40% ready in development that's due to 2016 release
Go away fag, Ubisoft already confirmed there is no AC this year and the next one in 2017 will be set in Egypt.
I can see that being a potential setting, but I still don't believe you are telling the truth.
I just cannot see them going back to the setting of Rome, even if in a different time period, when it has already basically been done in two AC games before, one in which the entire game took place in the renaissance city.
I would actually love a roman setting though, especially with an AC-style game, and I think going back to the basics with swords would be welcomed because all these guns and gadgets are getting really fucking tired.
I think AC games belong in ancient history, and the more modern the games get the more boring and tired they become. There are so many historical periods that an AC game could be set though, but I would love to see one revolving around Julius Caesar / Brutus, etc.
where's my fucking orient creed game you slut
OP's setting is more believable than Egypt. We all know Ubisoft never allows the "weird" places to feature in a full dudebrocreed game. At best they get 2.5D platformers that everyone forgets.
So why are you posting this here, instead of an actual news site that is preferably not Kotaku?
>still no assassins creed set in feudal japan
do you guys not like money or what? you keep making them in the most bland shitty settings that nobody asked for. black flag was a fluke im sure
>"Of course, without official verification from Ubisoft, we'll have to treat it all as a rumour for now"
>Ubisoft has issued an official comment to IGN, stating, “We can’t comment on rumor or speculation. We’re always happy when players are excited about our games, past, present and future. In the meantime, we hope that the latest images from the Assassin’s Creed movie set will keep fans of the franchise happy and eager to find out more!”
Found the Kotaku staff member. Tell Jason to walk into oncoming traffic.
No we didn't confirm it. Only Kotaku said that from sources they never even told you about.
I'm not lying. We already had plans to feature AC games having the same location at different eras. This is our second game like that. the first game where this idea was implemented was ACSyndicate (Jacob and Lydia at two different time).
you seem like a good guy Dave, I screencap'd it. When they announce this game at E3, I'll post it in your memory.
Also, is Watch Dogs 2 going to be address the criticisms the first game had?
One last thing, can you give me any info on the new Ghost Recon? I'm dying to see that series make a comeback, been a big fan since the original.
Ok I will bite.
I know it is a marketing decision for the games to be easy as fuck to appeal to the lowest denominator. Is there however going to be a change? Like a hard mode you could activate which emphasizes stealth and improves enemy AI?
In short, are AC games going to be enjoyable and challenging gameplay wise?
I have no idea. We haven't decided future settings. A lot of decisions have changed last year. So, whatever setting you guys thought was probable, are no longer the potential settings. We are aiming to get a setting that would have a link with the Modern Day arc. The reason ROME (different places outside rome included) was chosen was to explore more on the Shroud of Eden's healing capability. Ok, I'm going to spoil a little bit of it: The Shroud of Eden can't revive a dead human because is First Civilization DNA is too low. However, for a sage (whose First Civ DNA is 5% give or take) that's a different story entirely. And the Modern story Arc will be much more vast this time.
sorry, I have no idea regarding the development details of watch dogs. i know the potential release date because my friend works there. However, Jonathan is really busy working on the new watch dogs from what I hear. I'm sure the next game will be a big hit.
we don't have any special mode in the game. but we are constantly tweaking the game to appeal both the hardcore and other fans who just want the general experience of peaceful exploration.
On the chance you aren't full of shit, aztec asscreed fucking when?
Jumping around Tenochitlan would be rad, and there's tons of neat natural locations with lake texcoco, jungles, swamps, and deserts.
can you retards just make a sequel to assassins creed syndicate what the fuck, syndicate already has a fucking modern day story, you retards need to team together and make a coherent story, not fucking singular shit
>this is what history majors do in their free time
