Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is not Assassin’s Creed 3
Ubisoft Montreal’s Jean-Francois Boivin revealed that Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood will be the last of Ezio’s story, and that we can expect an Assassian’s Creed 3 sometime after 2011.
He told Eurogamer yesterday:
I don’t think there’s going to be an Assassin’s Creed in 2011. I think we’re going to let it breathe a bit and really focus on bringing something new and exciting for the next time around. This [Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood] is the end of Ezio’s story. This is it. If we skip a year, I think we’re good. But yeah, I think we could do something really true to the license if we skip a year and release it in 2012 or 2013. We need to keep it fresh though; we need to keep it relatively close by, because we have to keep the interest there. I don’t think we do a service to this license if we pull a Duke Nukem on people, you know what I’m saying? It’s hard to answer.
He went on to say that the Assassian’s Creed team knows in what direction they are going. He told Gamerzines.com that “We know what we’re doing; we’ve had a plan for a long time where this license is going to go.”
Gamerzines also revealed that according to Boivin, each new numbered title will have a new character and a new setting. “Assassin’s Creed 3: new setting, new hero. That’s the way it works.”
I’m actually glad we won’t see one for a while after this year, because to me the Assassin’s Creed games, although extremely fun, become really repetitive before the game is half over. AC:Brotherhood is bringing with it the multiplayer aspect, which I really enjoyed playing at E3. Hopefully that will keep my interest longer.
