Ubisoft has made no secret that they are loving the money that is being pulled in by the Assassin’s Creed franchise. They’ve gone as far as to say that they would like to make it a yearly franchise. The gap between Assassin’s Creed 1 and 2 was a fairly standard two years. But in a few days, Assassins Creed: Brotherhood will be hitting shelves, just one year after the second installment.
According to Kotaku, Ubisoft is charging ahead with an annual release schedule for the series. Yves Guillement, the CEO of Ubisoft, said that there would be “something around Assassin’s.” This announcement doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Assassin’s Creed 2 sold extremely well, and Brotherhood is poised to repeat that success.
The only question is whether or not this game will be Assassin’s Creed 2, or another spin off. Personally, I would love to see another Assassin’s Creed that focuses on Altair, but with the improved game play of the second game. But the smart money would probably be on a full fledged Assassin’s Creed 3, although Guillement refused to comment on the nature of the title.
