Many have discussed the need for a change of direction in the Assassin’s Creed series. A new report indicates Ubisoft are certainly listening.
A report on NeoGAF (First posted on 4chan), which most of the information was confirmed Kotaku, states that the next Assassin’s Creed title will act as a prequel to the entire series and will be released next year. Speaking about the next installment, the 4chan poster stated:
The original game included Greece, which you can travel to. But it was cut from the game due to scale issues. So the naval side is now a mystery to me. There are talks about making a trilogy of this same character, so they might explore Greece/Rome next.
It will be a complete revamp of the series. The game is going for a Witcher feel, with player progression, freeform combat system. Horse is back, and boats too. It’s made by the Black Flag team.
The poster also stated that players will have control of their own pet eagle, with the main character resembling a darker-skinned Altair. Ubisoft refused to comment on the report, releasing a statement:
We can’t comment on rumour 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!
