Many gamers have been worried that their time with their PS3’s and Xbox 360’s is nearly at an end as the next generation of gaming has been on the shelves since November. But Ubisoft have vowed that for as long as there is a demand for these games, they will continue to make them for these consoles.
In an interview with Edge, Vice President of Creative, Lionel Raynaud said: “When you do a game that has old-gen and new-gen versions, we decide which one is lead. So if you decide that new gen is lead for all of your games, then you have no restrictions at all – you’re just saying that the other generation will maybe not be able to have everything but still be a better game than we’re used to having on this generation.”
Although no details have really been released about the game yet, other than it is rumoured to be surrounding a Templar hero, it is expected that Assassins Creed Comet will be made only for the PS3 and the Xbox 360 and will be released around November 14. At the same time, Assassin’s Creed Unity will also be available for the Xbox One and the PS4.
“We are able to offer people a new Assassin’s Creed every year because people want Assassin’s Creed every year. As long as this is true we would be very stupid to not satisfy this need,” Raynaud said, “but it puts a lot of pressure on us to create something that will never disappoint.”
Ubisoft will continue to make these games for the old-gen system for as long as there is a demand for them which means that they could be going for a few years yet.
