Ubisoft Montreal's Jean-Francois Boivin doubts that there will be a new Assassin's Creed next year...
When it launches this November, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood will follow-on only a year after the release of Assassin's Creed II, but that doesn't mean that Ubisoft has plans to annualise the series Activision-style. At least, that's according to Jean-Francois Boivin, an Associate Producer on the game.
"I don't think there's going to be an Assassin's Creed in 2011," Boivin told Eurogamer. "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."
Although Boivin wouldn't be drawn on a rough release window for the next Assassin's Creed game after Brotherhood, he did indicate that the series won't be disappearing for more than two or three years at most.
"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," he said. "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."
Stay tuned for our impressions on the game from a recent Ubisoft preview, which will be going up on TVG before the end of the week.
