Title: Assassin's creed 5 (?)
Platforms: X360, XB1, PS3, PS4, PC
Release Date: TBA (expected in 2014)
As Ubisoft stated a few years ago, there will be a new Assassins Creed game every year...
...Because the adventures of Edward Kenway sold better on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Ubisoft plans to continue releasing more installments on both generations. This also means that we may see a multi-disc game next year as every installment tries to be bigger and more impressive than the last.
Right now, all publishers are transitioning their development resources. For a game like Assassins Creed Black Flag, most of the sales are still going to be on current generation platforms. We cant make a version for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One thats so wildly different that we cant market them together. So, for now, developers and designers are focused on making a game that works really well on all of the systems but as we transition resources to the next gen, its going to be more difficult to do that because the power of these machines is going to allow so much more creativity.
- Tony Key, Ubisoft senior vice president of sales and marketing.
While the Assassins Creed 5 release date will most likely see it once again on current and next gen consoles, there wont be that dramatic a difference between the two.
