I'd leave too if I were expected to manage the creation and execution of 5 super-interesting stories in 5 AAA games in the same 5-year span.

Never got into the AC series, and I kind of wish I would have. I feel like I'm really missing out on some good games. I REALLY don't feel like going through the first on though.

i honestly never intended to play Revelations either, and i'm a huge fan/completionist of the series. getting it as a gift however means that i will, i'll just have to watch that amazing Woodkid trailer again before i do

Whatever the next AC game is, I won't buy it until after the reviews are out or maybe even wait for the first price drop. ACR was a pretty unnecessary pre-order.

Well considering how bad ACR was, this sounds like a good thing for the franchise.

After getting to the AC party late I dragged my feet about half way through. After finishing the 1st game I immediately replayed it to S rank it. I bought AC2 2 months later and at the halfway point I was burned out. I keep planning to go back to finish it but other games, guitar, and work get in the way. There will be 10 of these games by the time I get through Brotherhood.
I hope Activision doesn't burnout the fans with the early AC.

I've mostly enjoyed the Assassin's Creed franchise (though the first one was a chore to make it through and the last one was . . . meh), but I can completely see that after four years of making essentially the same four games, I'd want to move on, too. Live is finite and you only have so many games, movies, books, paintings, whatever in you to produce. Why waste it creating the same thing? Well, because the money is good, obviously. But no shame in moving on as soon as you can.

I seem to recall reading somewhere that AC3 is speculated to have you playing as Altair's son in Egypt or something, which, while would make for some very different scenery, only takes the series backwards and wouldn't fit being apart of the next numbered big step for the series.

And by AC3, you mean AC5, right? :)

Well, shit.

Maybe these people are leaving because they're unhappy with how the whole thing is going. Personally I thought that Brotherhood was amazing, but since Revelations they NEED to get on it again.

It's going to at the very least feature a new character so they'll be calling it AC3 - which seems fair, given AC3/Brotherhood/Revelations was primarily centred around Ezio and it was his own trilogy more or less. If you mean AC5 in the literal sense, does that you're also going to be calling GTAV GTAIX?

@James_ex_machina: Ubisoft, you mean Ubisoft.

All you need to know is that Revelations was down to $40 after less than 2 months on the market. But man, seriously, fuck that game. Everyone on here is saying exactly what I am thinking. Please make good game this year. I would guess that they are limiting the director's control by not allowing them to extend the story. Like hence why the story in this most recent iteration was butt fucking pointless. I would quit too. I am only so angry because I thought I wanted this game every year, but they clearly are getting ready to jump the proverbial shark. In a perfect world this last piece of shit they called AC was just a setup to make fans appreciate the next one.

As long as AC3 has a new game engine it will be better to play and look at.

Well, it almost certainly won't have a new engine.

honestly, in MTL people leave and rejoin companies left and right as long as you get a salary increase. Him leaving has no bearing on the quality of the franchise.

I have friends who have done UbisoftMTL->EAMTL->EidosMTL->UbisoftMTL in the matter of months. Doing that, you get big jumps in salary much quicker than staying in the same place.
