Ubisoft CEo does feel that the pirate setting is more appealing though.

Ubisoft has stated in a recent investor conference call that the publisher is not looking for year-over-year franchise sales of the Assassin’s Creed franchise to increase. For that matter CEO Yves Guillemot isn’t expecting Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag to exceed that of Assassin’s Creed III.

In response to an analyst, Guillemot stated, “To come back to Assassin’s Creed IV, in our numbers we have…we expect less than last year.

“We are actually pushing to achieve more than last year because we think the pirate segment is a great segment that can generate a lot more on a worldwide basis than what was achieved last year. But we wanted to be prudent on our expectations so that it can probably be a bonus if it comes.”

As such, Black Flag is already looking far more appealing than Assassin’s Creed III with its epic scope and expansive world. Let’s see if gamers respond accordingly and are willing to give the game another chance.
