We can still innovate over the long term with Assassin's Creed says Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillmot
Assassin's Creed has become a regular fixture in the yearly games release schedule but Ubisoft still feels that the series has got plenty of room to innovate in the future.
Ubisoft's CEO Yves Guillemot has the belief that the Assassin's Creed series is still finding new innovations each year and, as they showed with Assassin's Creed IV: Blakc Flag, there's always the possibility of reinvention.
“I think a franchise can always be reinvented and lots of surprises can come from your teams if you give them enough time to try new things,” Guillmot explained optimistically. “I don't see why after a certain number of years we would decide that we'd done whatever we could with it. I believe we can innovate in the long term with the franchise.”
He added, “This year we are introducing co-op, which we think will be very interesting. You will see also that using technology to its full potential makes it really impressive. It shows what the machines can do and it's really cool.”
Assassin's Creed: Unity is due out later this year on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
