Assassin’s Creed will one day come to its eventual end, and how that might just happen has already been in the planning stages. In a conversation with Eurogamer, Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag Director Ashraf Ismail, explained the franchise’s bosses have a rough idea of how they wanted the series to finish.
“We have multiple development teams, then we have the brand team that sits on top and is filled with writers and designers concerned with the series’ overall arc,” Ismail explained. “So there is an overall arc, and each iteration has its place inside this.
“We have an idea of where the end is, what the end is. But of course Yves [Guillemot, Ubisoft’s overall boss] announced we are a yearly title, we ship one game a year. So depending on the setting, depending on what fans want, we’ve given ourselves room to fit more in this arc. But there is an end.”
We already know a few details about Assassin’s Creed 5 – or whatever 2014’s AC entry will be called. One of the primary studios working on it is Splinter Cell: Blacklist developer Ubisoft Toronto, which is headed up by one of the series’ original co-creators, Jade Raymond.
