Three Assassins Creed Games Currently In Production

Apart from the highly anticipated title Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag, we are informed that two more games in the series are currently in production.

This was stated by the main Ubi himself, Yves Guillemot, CEO at Ubisoft...

In total Ubisoft is currently working on three Assassin's Creed games according to Guillemot. The only game that has been fully detailed is the upcoming Assassin's Creed 4, titled 'Black Flag', a game that will revolve around pirates and figures alike.

It wasn't so long ago that we were informed of the news that a total of seven development studios were working on the Assassin's Creed franchise. While impressive the franchise is a huge success and so its not all together surprising to hear that many devs are involved in making the AC magic happen. Another one of the three titles we have also heard about is Assassin's Creed 5 is being developed by Ubisoft Toronto.

Yves Guillemot:

"We are making sure the teams who are creating the different iterations have enough time—two years, three years, so that they can take risk and they can change the concept enough so that it can be appealing and fresh."

He continues: "Really, what we see is that we can have the capacity to regularly come with innovation. That is, for me, the formula: if you can really change the game on a regular basis and bring in innovation your fans want a product very regularly. Our job is to make sure the teams have enough power, enough energy and enough time to take the necessary steps to create a high quality game."

Well, we've seen a new Assassin's Creed game each year since the release of Assassin's Creed II. It seems as though Ubisoft would like to continue that trend, and who can blame them? The series is still getting more popular and known by the day.

Assassin's Creed 1, 2, Brotherhood, Revelations and 3 have made an appearance so far, in that specific order. Not only that, as Ubisoft also have an Assassin's Creed movie planned.

Nothing has been clarified about the third AC project at this time.

Last years AC3 was mainly set in the new world of the Americas. Mostly on dry land, but introducing the sea battle concept to the games mechanics. As this ship to ship combat was obviously a major investment focus, but given relatively limited attention in the sprawling land based AC3, this years AC4 Black Flag title is largely an open world sea exploration adventure around the caribbean.

AC4 Black Flag will be out towards the end of Oct or Early November 2013 depending on where you are from. This time around the PC version is not likely to experience any delays, compared to console release date as has been the problem in the past with Ubi console titles.

My question for you, dear GD readers - Will the Pirate Assassins Creed, sailing his way through the islands of the caribbean, exploring for treasure and trade offer the player a lot of fun? It was fun doing it all those years ago in Sid Meirs Pirates Gold, but will it work for the AC franchise?

I might shed some light to this matter;
Mega Man started as an awesome platform/shooter series but now the most recent ones are horrible attempts to "re-invent" the genre and so forth :/

Looks like someone has some gaming homework to be done. You have 10 days to play the original Mega Man games. I'd recommend playing 1-3 and X. :D

I prefer the Sonic The Hedghog example. Used to be wildly popular and innovative; now hated, obnoxious and newer games are seemingly only enjoyed by very young boys and er, well, grown men that aren't "all there" in the head department (such as Chris-chan.) ;)
Megaman I think is specifically aimed at a younger crowd though, right?
The way I see it is AC re-invents itself with each game; nearly every one has a completely different setting. Re-inventing it would not be a bad thing necessarily, but quality control will need to be strict.

And what problem does this make? AC4 is in production in last steps and AC5 is in the middle of production. That makes the game take the time it needs for development.

I really can't imagine why people are so haunted by COD?! You are all saying the series is being milked while you still have not seen anything?!! Cheer up mates and don't hate something because you fear it fails LOL!
Until now, Assassin's Creed offered the most complex gameplay setting and the most upgraded one year by year. Moreover, the best realistic graphics. For the story, you may like a story more than another but that doesn't mean the latter is bad! AC3's problem was not story, it was Connor's personality which we didn't like and Edward is about to change this. Please guys, you have not seen anything being milked from AC yet, so stop accusing them of milking the series and instead, try to be hopeful and support them :)

Brotherhood was really good but we can't ignore the fact that AC3 offered really great Gameplay and Graphics. Story was not very strong but that doesn't mean the series is going bad. They may just have chosen an incorrect era for the game in AC3 and that is all.

Finally, someone is writing positive things on this page..
and i dint know why people saying bad things about AC,innovation is a basic requirement for a long term success,and they are making new games with all new features for us.but people love Mr ezio.. He"s done man move ON...

Yea true enough. People were amazed by Ezio and Altair because the idea was still very fresh. It is like when eat Pizza for the first time and you are amazed by it. Whatever you do in it later it will still be Pizza so by this logic you should stop eating it so as not to repetitive and still, the whole world love it. AC is game with no competitor so we can't just tell them stop it. People should appreciate it LOL!

OK 1ST i must admit that your example was amazing LOL. and specially for those were giving lame reasons for stop making more ACS, and AC3 was the best for me because i had some more and new things to do and we were expecting it, and what about pirate missions, people loved that concept.

Thanks pal I really love Pizza :D Now they are focusing on pirates, later they do on Ninjas, later on Samurais, later on Russians, later on Persians, perhaps on Pharaohs or the Roman Empire. History is full with possibilities :D

I would prefer the franchise to die after AC4, it should have happened after AC3 but still they are pushing it, hope it doesnt get messed up and destroy the AC brand name as a whole :/
