Assassin’s Creed 4 game director Ashraf Ismail has explained that the development team behind the game has ideas in place for the series eventual ending. However, Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot wants the game to be a yearly series, so there’s no chance of seeing an ending anytime soon. That’s unless fans decide they have had enough of the popular franchise and sales inevitably decline. Here’s what Ismail had to say.
“We have multiple development teams, then we have the brand team that sits on top and is filled with writers and designers concerned with the series’ overall arc. So there is an overall arc, and each iteration has its place inside this.”
“We have an idea of where the end is, what the end is. But of course Yves [Guillemot, Ubisoft’s overall boss] announced we are a yearly title, we ship one game a year. So depending on the setting, depending on what fans want, we’ve given ourselves room to fit more in this arc. But there is an end.”
