Ubisoft Toronto Already Developing Next Assassin’s Creed
Studio head Jade Raymond revealed the company's plans to Polygon, adding Ubisoft Toronto had work on five new games lined up to follow Splinter Cell. While one of those games will be another Splinter Cell title, the others remain a mystery. "We have two big collaborations coming that we're not talking about, on two of the biggest franchises at Ubisoft," Raymond said. "We also have two new IP."
Obviously details on the 2014 Assassin's Creed are non-existent, but Raymond claimed she was happy to be returning to the series she helped launch. "The thing that's great to me is that there is still some of my favorite people who, you know, we were in the trenches shipping that first one," Raymond added. "We lived through all of that stuff together and some of those guys are still on the franchise and have been there. So it's a just for me to work with some of those people again."
That Ubisoft is already prepping the next Assassin's Creed isn't all that surprising, but it will be interesting to see how the franchise progresses on a yearly cycle for the next generation of consoles. Whether this new game will be Assassin's Creed 5 or a sequel along the lines of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood remains to be seen.
What do you think about another Assassin's Creed being announced so soon?
