Ubisoft Says “There Is An End” To The Assassin’s Creed Series

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.”

  1. Thank goodness there is an end to this overrated boring series, i hope the ending comes soon. Seriously people buy this shit every year? “Desmon! desmond! your father watches porn ooh”, what the fuck dude?

  2. well Ubisoft you shouldnt have made it a yearly title for something that was amazing in the first 2 games, its become stale and repetitive

    1. Which is why i’m going to get it on Wii U, i’m hoping that it will make it a bit different from the others

    2. Black Flag looks good though!! I haven’t played AC before, but I’ve always wanted an awesome Pirate game!! 💋

      1. They ruined the concept of assassin in AC black flag. Up until this point assassin’s creed was very well know for making good storylines for assassins. AC 1,2, Brotherhood, and even revelations were all great games, assassin’s creed 3 storyline was good but connor was dull and boring. In AC Black Flag, this game seems more based off on a hooded pirate named kenway…

        1. I don’t know man, Assassin’s creed III was pretty bad in terms of story. I liked the change of pace it gave me to play in the modern times but it added this distasteful Sci-fi feel to a game mainly about stopping British soldiers from taking your land and taking your own revenge. Black flag has some cool looking things in it, but I don’t think I’ll trust assassin’s creed enough to play another future installment.

          1. Your point of view is very productive, i agree the parts where it gets more unrealistic i didn’t like, I enjoyed the desmond side more, until the horrible ending…

  3. Thank the god.
    No series should go past 4th installment.
    4th should be that ugly child of yours you had to have, because you missed having a baby,
    but later on regret having.

    1. Mario? Zelda? Metroid? Mega Man? Mario Kart? Star Fox? Kirby? I could keep going on, but why are you only saying this now, and not about the countless Nintendo series that are well past their fourth instalment?

      1. The difference is that all of these game tell a self contain story in each game and none of them have promise an “ending” in a “third instalment”, exept Metroid Prime, but that one did in fact end in the third instalment

  4. Thank god… starting to get sick of the same game every year. Kind of pist off at Ubisoft after blaming Nintendo for ZombiU sales and cutting the co op mode in Splinter Cell BL and OH! SCREWING Nintendo on Rayman Legends exclusive cause everyone knows that Rayman Origins was such a blockbuster hit on multiple consoles before… Dumb asses…

    1. Just wait, I smell more excuses and blame on Nintendo in the coming days, plus an expected rant from the creature Pachter in the near future aswell…

      1. Pachter was last seen ranting about the Vita being unnecessary (in his opinion), so it appears he’s switched focus for the time being,

  5. Well, maybe this will finally make my dream of playing as Jesus in an AC game come true!!! Seeing how Ubisoft wants to make a yearly AC game and want to base them in every period of history and country I think they will eventually get to the point where they have to make a game in Jesus period of time, I can’t imagine how cool would that be!! Jesus would be the most awesome badass assassins with a lot of super powers and skills!!!

  6. The third one was the last in the series, but ”no we announce a new one every year” NO, NO MORE!!!! ASSASSIN’S CREED 4 IS GOING TO BE THE LAST!!!! YOU RUINED THE SERIES, UBISOFT!!!!! ASSASSIN’S CREED 3 WAS IT, BUT NOW, YOU’RE MAKING 3 MORE ASSASSIN’S CREED GAMES? THEY BETTER NOT BE ASSASSIN’S CREED 5, 6, AND 7!!!!!! NO MORE, UBISOFT, FIRST YOU DELAY RAYMAN LEGENDS TO SEPTEMBER AND MAKE IT FOR PS3 AND XBOX 360, AND NOW YOU CONTINUE THE ASSASSIN’S CREED SERIES?!?!! NO MORE!!!!! ASSASSIN’S CREED 4 WILL BE THE LAST, ALSO STOP MAKING A NEW ONE EVERY YEAR, TAKE A BREAK!!!!! JUST STOP UBISOFT, DON’T BE ANOTHER MICROSOFT OR MICROSOFT NUMBER 2!!!!!! JUST NO MORE, ASSASSIN’S CREED 4 WILL BE THE LAST ONE!!!!!! YOU BETTER NOT ANNOUNCE ASSASSIN”S CREED 5 NEXT YEAR!!!!!!!

  7. it’s like Ubi’s version of that cash cow called CoD from Activision. Even though I find the AC series to be better I found key points of the last game to be.. lacklusture.
    Hopefully AC4 and future games will at least have a sense of direction. It IS about taking down Juno after the final events of AC3 after all..

  8. granted the series has become a bit stale, but I would hate to see it end soon, its one of the few Ubisoft games I can live with, I really wish to see CoD end, at one time, if my brother plays one more F***ing round of Black Ops online, full of gunshots I will shoot myself, but I digress, point is, if Assassins creed is cancelled before CoD I will be pissed, plus as long as it does not effect Nintendo in a negative way, Ubisoft can make a game about a tap dancing communist unicorn for all I care,

  9. Seriously, what’s wrong with you? All the games have been well made so far. I know it kinda feels exhausting to have a new chapter every freaking year, but Ubisoft really puts great effort on all their games. This is just like Zelda and Mario. There are so many games but in general all of them are awesome (even though they lack in some areas or other things would have been better). Though Zelda is not a yearly franchise (which is good), but Mario games…. Well, it’s another yearly franchise and no one here says “STOP BRINGING MARIO GAMES EVERY FUCKING YEAR!!!! DAMN NINTENDO, YOU’RE JUST LIKE ACTIVISION AND CALL OF PUPPY!!!!!”….

  10. SO…they are telling me that if I really want to se the true ending of this story I need to stop buying their games? I think I could do that

  11. Do the Civil War and customizable Assassins/ Templars in story mode and i can live past AC4
