I didn't buy or play Assassin's Creed Unity because of the reviews and issues it had. But I still want to play a good Assassin's Creed game, maybe Victory will be it? This time next year it will be two years since Black Flag. I for one will be ready to get back in at that point.
Think back to the Black Flag announcement. Everyone rolled their eyes because of the game play and story telling of Assassin's Creed III. But Black Flag took everyone by surprise by actually being pretty good. Let's hope the same thing happens with Victory. This time a new studio is leading the project. I'm willing to give them a fair shake.
