Ubisoft's just announced their future plans for the Assassin's Creed series, one of the biggest franchises of the WiiStation360 generation. Not only will it feature an entirely new protagonist, era, and location, it's going to be coming pretty darn soon. Ubisoft didn't give a real date for Assassin's Creed 4, but they did say it would see release during fiscal year 2014, which starts April 1st of this year and ends on March 31st, 2014. This is a very wide window, and I'm certain the release date will be on the far later side of the spectrum, seeing as how Assassin's Creed 3 released only months ago.
Do you have high hopes for the franchise? Personally, if feels a bit rushed to me, but then again, the entire franchise is actually surprisingly young. Even though there was never much more than a year between releases (even if some were spinoff titles, Ubisoft has always maintained pretty high quality. I'm hoping this next game takes us somewhere vastly different than the past installments, with entirely different weaponry; we have yet to see a game take place in Asia or Africa. Of course, there are reasons for this, but...imagine the different in gameplay! One can dream. What would you like to see in the next Assassin's Creed? Sound off below!
