Two New Assassin's Creed Titles, One Is An Upgraded Liberation

You know about the upcoming Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, but you probably didn't know that Ubisoft has two more AC titles on the horizon.

During the publisher's Digital Days event, Ubisoft revealed Assassin's Creed Liberation HD, a high-definition re-imagining of last year's PlayStation Vita effort. This will be coming to consoles and PC as a digital title. They also announced Assassin's Creed Pirates, featuring "brutal naval combat inspired by Assassin's Creed III, and this one is headed to smartphones and tablets.

Liberation HD features unique assassin gameplay mechanics, a solid narrative, and one of those great environments for which this franchise is so well known. The upgrade boasts "a complete graphical overhaul, remastered music and sound effects, a revamped gameplay experience, and new missions." Check out the debut trailer below.

As for Pirates, players will "explore the Caribbean during the Golden Age of piracy." You will play as Alonzo Batilla, a young and ambitious captain, and you can upgrade your crew and ship, recruit new members, and participate in real-time naval warfare.

This is how that game should look on Vita. I'm glad I didn't pay you Ubisoft for the original, which was full of bugs and crappy framerate.
Now, just look at Killzone and see how big titles suppose to be done on a handheld.

This. The vita version is pretty much a mess. I quit playing it a lot sooner than I usually give up on AC games. :P

This franchise is going to come crashing down someday. It's headed the Guitar Hero route.

What is the point?

Goddammit Ubisoft...AC IV is looking interesting, but I can't take all these AC titles.

I intentionally took a break from AC (played 1, 2, Brotherhood, skipped Revelations and III), just so I wouldn't get sick of the franchise.

I shouldn't have to impose limits on myself so that I can enjoy your games!

Ubisoft, you're doing it wrong...

Oh, and bringing Liberation over to consoles just defeats the point.
Exclusive experience on a handheld that differentiates it from the console? No!
We could never...! Lets just port it over in HD!

Its true that too much of a good thing is a bad thing.
I really do admire AC and enjoy the series but I'd respect it more with the releases only being AC, AC: One of Ezio's, and AC3.

I never played AC III or Liberation on Vita, out of the timeline which one comes first: Liberation or III?

AC: III = 1754 to 1783
Liberation = 1765 to 1777

So technically AC:III, Liberation just happens in between then.

Liberation might be my AC ever! Simply because she is the only playable female assassin!

For goodness sake, just end this series...!
Playing AC:III and the quality's taken a nosedive already.
I intend IV to be the last AC game I get.

Anyone else think that Pirates is just a pared back version of the naval multiplayer that was reportedly culled from Black Flag, ported to mobile so that its flaws will be glossed over?
