Ubisoft On Future Of Assassin's Creed And Expanding The Brand
The Assassin's Creed franchise has become one of the most popular and critically acclaimed of the generation.
And that's why everyone wants to know about the upcoming new installment, Revelations. At Comic-Con, Ubisoft writer Darby McDevitt first confirmed that they intend to release Assassin's Creed III at some point, although he offered no further details. For Revelations, set to launch this November, he said fans can expect "better integration of the Brotherhood with more opportunities to do specific things with them." Also, the way we meet and recruit those members will be different; it was basically the same each time in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. The Animus will also be changed a bit in Revelations (because the main character, Desmond, is changing), so that ought to be interesting.
Also, transmedia producer Louis-Pierre Pharand spoke about "Assassin's Creed: Embers," which is a 21-minute animated short film that follows Ezio in his later years. Ubisoft is looking to expand the brand even further with this project, as they wish to "improve their asset pipeline." As far as we're concerned, just about anything related to AC gets our attention, and we'd love to know what they have planned for ACIII...we're finally going to need some new characters, Ubisoft.
