Ubisoft compares Assassin’s Creed’s franchise potential with Mario and Resident Evil

Posted By | On 19th, Aug. 2012

Ubisoft has mentioned that Assassin’s Creed is a long term franchise like Mario and Resident Evil.

 

People usually bash Ubisoft for releasing Assassin’s Creed games yearly but they have said that it’s going to be a long term franchise and they’re doing their best to not drag down the franchise’s quality.

“Since when is something less amazing if you get a new one every year? If Breaking Bad was shown twice a week I’d watch it twice a week. If Radiohead put out an album every six months I’d gladly buy one every six months,” creative director Alex Hutchinson told CVG at Gamescom.

“If people want these massive triple-A blockbusters, people will have to accept that we have to make our money back somehow. It’s rare that you’ll make your money back on the first one. Assassin’s Creed 3 is a huge undertaking – we went back to basics on a number of things, including tech. Any revenue that a publisher can get to make riskier projects is cool with me.”

He also said that sometimes games don’t score so well, but that’s normal.

“We were reading reviews about Assassin’s Creed Revelations and a few people were asking whether this was the end of the franchise, and we were thinking ‘er slow down’. I mean, I’m no huge fan of Metacritic but the game got an eighty on there. That’s not too bad really,” he revealed.

“The way we see Assassin’s Creed 3 now is as a franchise, like Mario or Resident Evil, that will have its ups and downs. It wasn’t the original plan to be an ongoing series, no, but it became the plan. The curse of success, for want of better phrase.”
