Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag just released on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, PC, and PlayStation 4, with an Xbox One release coming later this week, but Ubisoft’s Jean-Sebastien Decant, who served as the lead game designer on that excellent game,already has his eyes set on the next game in the franchise. In an interview with GameReactor, he talked about his vision for the future of the series.

“I think we’re going toward a gaming place where the open world will be shared with other players. More and more. Socially speaking, but also maybe multiplayer stuff. And we will have to consider the open world much more like a platform that we could sustain for years.”

This sounds a lot like the just released Need for Speed: Rivals, or even Ubisoft’s own upcoming Watch Dogs. To this, Decant responded: “Absolutely, Watch Dogs is kind of showing us the path for the future. Absolutely. But we have to create a… We have to respect our brands. So if we have to go that way with Assassin’s Creed we have to think about how it could fit into Assassin’s Creed.”

Fitting a wide ranging concept like that into Assassin’s Creed should not prove to be a problem: in recent years, the brand has shown itself to be extremely versatile, and it can basically be refitted to work with whatever Ubisoft has up its sleeve.
