Ubisoft appears to be so confident in its Assassin’s Creed franchise that it would be “unimaginable” to ever let its quality drop and according to AC: Unity Director, Alex Amancio, the dev team has the process “down to a science”.
During an interview, Amancio said that they key to the franchise’s success is actually the development team itself, stating that the team has been making these games for so long now that they “have it down to a science”, he told Game Informer.
“We’ve done this for a long time and we’ve gotten it down to a science. Maybe the first one it was like, ‘Oh, what do we do?’ But now, it’s just our daily business. We’ve been lucky, and I think it’s mostly because of the people who are behind the product.”
“The Assassin’s Creed people, we’re a huge family, and we love this brand so much that I think it’s unimaginable for us to ever let this ball drop. We need to always make the best game that we can possibly make. And so far, that heart and that level of effort and professionalism, has always pulled us through.”
Ubisoft games all do tend to fit a specific formula, involving large open worlds, tower points that unlock quests on the map and lots of side content. By the sounds of things, that formula isn’t going to change any time soon, especially when it comes to Assassin’s Creed. However, if the publisher doesn’t change things up, eventually people will get bored and move on.

KitGuru Says: Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed and even Far Cry 3, all play very similarly to eachother. It’s clear that Ubisoft has an open world game forumla that it applies to multiple franchises. Have any of you guys noticed this? Do you think Ubisoft needs to change things up a bit?
