Only ‘vocal minority’ complain about frequency of Assassin’s Creed, says Ubisoft
Ubisoft has defended its decision to release two Assassin’s Creed games this year, saying that only a small vocal minority of people have complained about the decision to release multiple AC games in consecutive months. AC: Rogue and Unity will be the newest titles to be released this year, and it sparked a bit of outrage among Ubisoft’s consumers.
In an interview with Eurogamer, Assassin’s Creed: Rogue producer Karl von der Luhe spoke about the decision to offer two titles.
“There are the hardcore Assassin’s Creed fans that are happy to play two games and there are of course many fans who have not yet made that financial move to go to next-gen,” he said. “And these are the guys that we’re really catering for – they’re thankful for the fact that they will have a compelling Assassin’s Creed game to play on either their Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3.”
Assassin’s Creed: Rogue launches on PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 11 with Unity launching two weeks earlier on PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 28.
