Did the Assassin’s Creed Series destroy itself?

It has been awhile since I have played an Assassin’s Creed game.Ubisoft has taken a break on their main annual series. The fourth game in the series got mixed reviews and many said that Assassins’s Creed Unity was a technical mess.

Anyways, it has been awhile and I feel bad. The series,  once upon a time, was one of my favorites. The story was great and the characters were good. Overall it was a solid series. Then they turned it annual.

It was fine at first, then it became the same every year. Game play is is fun, but there is not much they can add besides different missions, different types of game modes, or small amount of detailed things. The multiplayer has became a staple in the game and Ubisoft has to continue adding more content to balance it in the game.  With it coming out every year, they continued Ezio’s story but after that they moved on the Assassin’s Creed 3.

The ending of Assassin’s Creed 3 which is when the series story really ended.  The question now is where do they go?

I think that is where the issue lies. The war between the Templars and Assassins is now bigger than ever so the ideas can still be there. There can be another Animus user like Desmond that can be followed. The series still has a lot of potential. I almost forgot that a movie was coming out so there are still story ideas.

I really look forward to what they are going to do next with the series because now they have had a break. Also, Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed are technically all in one universe so they could keep it going in some type of form.  If they wanted to change the game play they can get ambitious, and start doing different things that might be frowned upon but do it anyway.

It is just now finding the narrative and continuing on with it.

  1. I really feels like Assassin’s Creed 3 is the game that really messed up the series. Not only was it probably the worst entry, but it completely botched up the real world story with Desmond and co. Since then, they’ve focused almost entirely on the world within the animus and almost forgotten that there’s a real world story happenings. I’m hoping that with this year off, Ubisoft can bring it back strong next year with an official Assassin’s Creed V and bring the series back!

      1. Indeed! I only hope that with this year off, Ubisoft has actually used the time to focus on the quality of the series!

        That said, do you share your posts on any other websites? I work over at Creators .Co (we’re part of Movie Pilot and Now Loading) and this is the sort of content that makes for an interesting read. If you were open to the idea of posting your work on our sites in addition to also having your blog/site here, I’d be more than happy to help you get started. My e-mail and more info can be found on my page. (o^.^)b

  2. I’ve only played Assassin’s Creed IV, but from what I’ve heard of the series, it seems as though the overarching plot (especially in the present scenes) became way too convoluted with many of the treads trailing off without resolution. If that’s true, we could be looking at the video game equivalent of The X-Files.
