I would much prefer not to have annual releases. The games have become rather shit because they don't have ample time to work on them. Remember that gap from the first and second game? Now, remember how freaking good the second game was?

Night Surgeon Think the part that makes me most uncomfortable if how he dismissed Boivin's remarks. Just goes to show that disconnect between some devs and publishers, which seems to be greater with bigger companies.

If it's the kind of thing where they've already got a team working on the next game alongside whoever's doing Black Flag, this could be okay.
If it's "Black Flag's done, lets get started on the next one now." Then we've got problems.

I read him saying they'll stop when the fans say no more... But I see underlying him saying they'll stop when we buy no more...

As a huge AC fan (been around since Altair's adventures back in ACI) I'm honestly getting tired of these annual releases. I'm also sad to admit that I've already preordered ACIV, so as much as these annoy me, I'm guilty of supporting them...

Agreed with Night Surgeon, ACII is still my favorite one to date, and not just because the character and the setting was better (sorry, stylized, beautiful architecture as opposed to gritty, brown and grays of the colonial buildings please,) but the game was just much more... Polished. Everything worked so well and fluid in that game, it was top notch. Things that extra time in developement and fixing only can do.

Also, can we get a new Prince of Persia, Ubi?

Lmao,so this roughly translates as; "yeah, we know we're milking it and we don't give a *bleep*."

If people buy them annually (I am one of these guilty people) then they're going to keep bringing them out. Can you blame them?
We only have ourselves to blame.

As much as I want to disagree, Mallet does have a point. As long as people keep handing over money, they will keep making them.

I think I maybe one of few people when I say that I didnt really enjoy AC3 as much as previous titles, and that includes Brotherhood and Revelation. They brought a lot more features, but they also took away/simplified a lot of great features/gameplay as well. It feels as though they've added/changed these features for the sake of changes, when many of it didn't. It was full bugs and glitches and worst of it all was the poor story. One of the main thing I love about the AC series, is then story.

So I would be one that would mind seeing a bit of gap between installments, but like the rest, I will probably pick it up anyway.

I think this series is going to die off even before it gets to the climax.
Seriously Ubisoft, Why?

I tried an AC game and I didn't like it so I don't care if it's being milked or not.
On another note if AC is being milked then what's up with Mario.
He has over 100+ games. I never see anyone complain about that.

By doing annual, they're just ruining the franchise on a yearly basis..Sad to see that AC has a potential but it has not been realized/achieved by developers since AC II and Brotherhood!

Not really. AC3 was in the works for like two years, and it was still shit.
