More Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry coming in the near future, says Ubisoft

Thursday, 7th February 2013 19:54 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

The next game in the Assassin’s Creed franchise will feature a new setting and character, Ubisoft announced during its quarterly financial call to investors today.

The title is set for release during the firm’s FY14, meaning it is slated for release sometime before March 2014.

“We are delighted and proud to announce today that in FY14 14, we will introduce an all-new Assassin’s Creed hero, within an all new team and time period,” said company CEO Yves Guillemot. “We expect it to be another major leap forward for the franchise.

“It is the benefit of multiple teams working on multiple chapters of the product, each getting several years to make their versions of an Assassin’s Creed game.”

Guillemot also told investors that “fans certainly won’t have to wait four more years for the next Far Cry,” as the third entry in the series performed “way better than expected,” with its 4.5 million copies shipped.

Ubisoft announced today that total revenue for the firm was up 23% to €802 million for the period, and online revenue was up 143% to €55.2 million.

Big-sellers for the firm along with the aforementioned Far Cry 3 were Assassin’s Creed 3 with 12 million shipped, and Just Dance 4 with 8 million shipped and Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation sales hitting close to 600,000.

    Less boring mercenary shootouts, more animal hunting. With proper weapons, there was something retarded about killing tigers or sharks with ak47. This entire game shoulda been like Cast Away movie, with just you animals and nature etc.. only after you get to third island or so should you be able to get your hands on guns and kill mercs.

    I gotta get my hands on Far Cry 3 everyone is saying its good. I personally thought it would be another meh FPS in the jungle. That E3 12 demo didn’t wow me.

    @4: Crytek could actually do it. I mean Crysis 3 already has the whole Hunter-Theme. Now they just need bad-ass weapons, dinosaurs and reptilian-humans.

    At least 30 unique weapons.

    Definitely looking forward to more Far Cry, especially if they tone down the linear sections of the game for the more open structured type missions. Also I would love to return back to Africa and the diamond trade narrative in Far Cry 2. That games story was pretty deep and moving on an emotional level. Just a shame about some of the game design features. The most recent one has corrected the game mechanic flaws though. Now they just need to work on the overly linear main missions and not always good narrative, not that it was bad mind, just could have been better.

    That’s the good news for me. I love the Assassin’s Creed franchise. I hope understand and choose wisely. Ideas for Assassin’s Creed 4:
    The rise of Cesar’s Empire in Ancient Rome.
    The Napoleonic Wars.
    The Warlord Battles in Feudal Japan.
    The advent of the mighty British Empire during Victorian England.
    The invasion of the Americas by the Spanish Conquistadors.
    The Violent Conflicts of the Imperial Dynasties in Medieval China.
    Not to remove too much of these historical periods. Personally I would not want the next Assassin’s Creed to take place in the future or in the period of the Second World War.
