"We would be very stupid" to ignore fans' need for annual Assassin's Creed, says Ubisoft

Ubisoft's VP of creative Lionel Raynaud has said the company would be "very stupid" not to satisfy the consumer's need for an Assassin's Creed release every year.

Speaking with Edge, Raynaud said that as long as fans want an Assassin's Creed game, Ubisoft will provide one.

"We are able to offer people a new Assassin's Creed every year because they want Assassin's Creed every year," Raynaud said. "As long as this is true we would be very stupid to not satisfy this need, but it puts a lot of pressure on us to create something that will never disappoint.

"It needs to keep the series core values and we need to really make sure that we have a good, high level understanding of what it is to be an Assassin. We have to make sure we always deliver a better feel and overall experience every time while still bringing something that they haven't seen before that's consistent with being an Assassin in the world we've created."

While Raynaud wouldn't comment on the rumored Assassin's Creed Comet for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, he confirmed that Ubisoft plans to continue its support of last-gen consoles "this year and probably the years after."

"We want to be able to provide games to people who are playing on these consoles," he said.

Assassin’s Creed Comet is reportedly set to launch alongside Assassin’s Creed: Unity this holiday season and it's rumored that the game stars a Templar named Shay.

Purportedly, the game is also set in North America and players will be able to sail the Atlantic.

Thanks, OXM.
