Next Assasin Creed could have no boats at all
Hello Assassin’s Creed fans! Maybe it won’t come as a surprise for you, but for those who don’t know it yet, Ubisoft will release a new version of your favorite game this year!
The company is trying to offer a new experience to all gamers by changing the location, but this can bring some disadvantages for those who are used to their improvements. For example, if the game will take place in Egypt, the great naval combats won’t have room there. So many features from Assassin’s Creed 3 and 4 can be lost. Ubisoft isn’t to eager to keep the old game technology, being more oriented on building entirely new things.
In an interview gave to the Edge, Darby McDevitt affirmed that “we always build on technology, nothing ever gets set aside. There’s often ways to creatively use old technology for new things. One of the things that made AC3’s naval combat possible–and then of course AC4–is that we were able to have characters climb and walk around on dynamically moving objects.”
Without giving any hints on what the new game is about, McDevitt continues:
“With AC3 we started working on that technology and it fed into the naval combat because the boats are constantly moving as opposed to being fixed to the ground, so all of this technology, it might appear in future games–it might just not be on boats. It might appear in a completely different way.”
Assassin’s Creed without a clear ending
Only a couple of weeks before, Ubisoft declared they haven’t perfected their Splinter Cell formula, and now they continue to say they don’t have a real ending for their whole storyline.
So this next version which will be launched this year will not have and any final content. However, the development team told to the Edge Online that they have “an idea of where the end is”.
On the contrary, McDevitt affirmed that “this storyline has an ending, but because all of history is open to us we see the universe as a Doctor Who type thing. There are so many possibilities we don’t want to definitively end the universe, but we can have storylines that have endings.”
He continued by sharing with the Edge that “the end of the Desmond trilogy changed slightly but it was always intended to end that way. And then about two years ago we planned for another story… [But] we’ve moved on from specifically defining when a story will end.”
So, what Ubisoft meant to say in a more subtle way is that they will keep doing new games every year, which is great news for fans. Because not even the lead manager doesn’t know what will be next, we don’t have to expect any end for the AC storyline in the some next consistent years.
