Lionel Raynaud has provided some comments regarding to the pressure of having to release a new “Assassin’s Creed” video game annually, including the upcoming “Assassin’s Creed Unity.” According to a report from Game Planet on March 31, the creative vice president of Ubisoft stated that customers crave a new title in the series every year.
As a result, the company would “be very stupid” not to satisfy the demand. You can check out the first screens from “Assassin’s Creed Unity” with the slideshow located to the left of this article and the first part of his remarks below (courtesy of Edge and Game Planet):
We are able to offer people a new Assassin’s Creed every year because they want Assassin’s Creed every year. As long as this is true we would be very stupid to not satisfy this need, but it puts a lot of pressure on us to create something that will never disappoint.
Lionel Raynaud is also aware that Ubisoft simply can’t release the same experience over and over again. Instead, the development teams have to implement something new to the table while improving on core mechanics at the same time. You can check out his next set of comments below:
We have to make sure we always deliver a better feel and overall experience every time while still bringing something that they haven’t seen before that’s consistent with being an Assassin in the world we’ve created.
Although “Assassin’s Creed Unity” is only coming to the PC, PS4 and Xbox One later this year, Lionel Raynaud also teased that another new iteration of the series would be released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 as well. In fact, Ubisoft is planning to continue support for the two current-generation consoles for the next several years.
“Assassin’s Creed Comet” is the rumored title for the PS3 and Xbox 360 game. It supposedly let players control a Templar.
