Ubisoft could be developing two different Assassin’s Creed games for 2014, according to Examiner sources said to be familiar with the projects.
One of these games would be exclusively for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while the other game is in development only for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Different AC games for each generation.
The source also says that the franchise “is under a massive re-scope“ and does not mention PC or WiiU versions.
Looking back, Ubisoft senior vice president of sales and marketing, Tony Key, already talked in November about the next-gen Assassin’s Creed game:
Right now, all publishers are transitioning their development resources. For a game like Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, most of the sales are still going to be on current generation platforms. We can’t make a version for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One that’s so wildly different that we can’t market them together.
So, for now, developers and designers are focused on making a game that works really well on all of the systems – but as we transition resources to the next gen, it’s going to be more difficult to do that because the power of these machines is going to allow so much more creativity.
And, of course, “Ubisoft does not comment on rumors and speculation.”
