Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell and whatnot?
Ubisoft Toronto’s Jade Raymond has said that Ubisoft’s Toronto studio is currently working on five projects, all of which are unannounced, and that two of those projects are being worked on by multiple studios (we’re assuming these are Ubisoft studios).
“There are definitely a lot of plates spinning,” said Raymond at the SXSW expo in Texas. ““None of them have been announced.”
She also said that Ubisoft is working hard on bringing its games to other media, such as television of feature films, much like the Assassin’s Creed film that is currently in production. “Our business is making games,” Raymond said, “so we have to make sure we’re making good games, first and foremost, I don’t think we can think out the gate, ‘How is this going to be a good movie?’ I don’t know anything about movies. I’ve never made a movie in my life.”
Raymond also said that Ubisoft was also focused on making good handheld and mobile titles. “A good game on those devices is different from a good game on consoles, so I definitely believe they deserve their own franchises,” she said.
We’re guessing that at least one of those titles is Assassin’s Creed 5.
