There is a negative correlation between the annual release of Assassin’s Creed games and review scores. Some quick research on Metacritic(used media outlet scores) shows the series’ original high scores have begun to slide with each release. Media outlets, who praised Ubisoft after the release AC2, have slowly changed their tune. It didn’t help when the reviews for AC3 weren’t up to gamers’ expectations. With AC4, it seems the company is grasping at straws to find the “trick” for their cash cow. Pirates…they are going to make a game about pirates. Why not let the series rest so the team can spend time coming up with fresh ideas and new mechanics. Will gamers enjoy climbing to the top of a mast only to climb up another mast to open the world around them? Do you feel like Ubisoft is making a mistake releasing the next game this October? Or am I the only one?
