Assassin Creed which was developed by Ubisoft and has became Ubisoft most sold franchise in their history. They have covered multiple times in the world including Third Crusade,, The Renaissance era, Colonial Era, French Revolution, Imperial China, Victorian Era, Sikh Empire, and October Revolution. It has been around since 2007 and it brought a mix of great gameplay (at the time) and a story arc not many developers would of thought would of worked. Most say the story of Ezio Auditore which spanned over 4 games was the peak of the franchise and since then they have had some big flops. Assassin Creed Unity was the first one to make it to next Gen consoles (Xbox One & Playstation 4) when it was released it had major issues with bugs in multiplayer and the regular story But Ubisoft tried to fire back with Syndicate which in theory was a great game. The first release of that game that you could play as two characters and a great story placed in the Victorian Era. But the issue is the gameplay hasn’t changed since Assasin Creed 2 and that bothers a lot of gamers and add on the bugs and replaceable story arcs and the franchise has lost its buzz.
How do you fix it? It wont be easy to gain back some fans but it is possible. You have to go back to what made the franchise look good. Great storytelling and development into characters. The gameplay is a great base but it needs to be revamped for modern society. What worked 10 years ago wont work now because of the rapid success and change in the industry. They need to have another great idea as well. AC2 was successful because it changed alot on how others saw video games with the history included in the 4 games following Ezio Auditore. As a gamer and huge fan of the series i just hope they can either fix it or end the franchise. Thank you for reading and make sure to follow us on twitter.
