Ubisoft comments on having multiple 'Assassin's Creed' releases each year

It seems like there are two possibilities to the average video game player these days: either a game is coming out too frequently or not often enough. When Ubisoft made the transition with Assassin's Creed into the realm of yearly installments, many fans were worried that it would affect the overall quality of the game. But with the upcoming release of Assassin's Creed Liberation HD, a remake of the PlayStation Vita title, for the first time we'll see two game's from the franchise release in the same year. And in an exclusive interview with Ubisoft, we asked if releasing so soon after Black Flag would impact sales at all and whether or not we should expect multiple releases each year.

Ubisoft Sofia producer Momchil Valentinov Gindyanov tells us, "Definitely [multiple releases a year] is a possibility. That being said, I don’t believe AC Liberation and AC IV are in competition as both games provide different experiences and I’m sure our fans enjoy both."

And while he may be right in that Liberation is aimed at a slightly different audience than the normal yearly Assassin's Creed titles, it's really interesting to note that the publisher is open to expanding the franchise even further.

What do you think? Is two titles a year too much? Let us know in the comments below or come discuss the development with us on Facebook or Twitter, we'd love to hear your opinion!

Liberation HD releases on January 15, 2014 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
