Ubisoft has stated that innovation as a concept will be fundamental in the future of the company’s games and sagas. The changes in Assassin’s Creed and other franchises are revealed little by little.
The 15th anniversary of the Assassin’s Creed saga has left us with all sorts of headlines and a few games scheduled for the next few years. It seems that Ubisoft wants to put a new spin on its most popular franchise, but the company’s vision goes a little further.
After seeing a turn into the past with Assassin’s Creed Mirage and interesting ideas such as the possibility of experimenting with other genres as is being considered with Assassin’s Creed Hexe, it’s time to continue knowing the opinions of the French company.
The editorial vice president, Fawzi Mesmar, has spoken with IGN about Ubisoft’s plans in general and it seems that some important changes are taking place in terms of development and ideation for future games.
We have innovation as a key pillar for all of our upcoming games, which could be anything from a quirky new art style to a relatively new take on a genre and even new gameplay mechanics.Mesmar commented.
So every Ubisoft project will look at those aspects and try to differentiate, provide depth and deliver the highest quality standards, as well as providing new ways for players to connect, interact and express themselves.

In this matter, some changes can already be seen, such as not all future Assassin’s Creeds will have a duration of 150 hours, something that usually defines Ubisoft’s open worlds.
The company wants to offer different experiences: So the breadth is not what we aim for, but the depth of the experience to make sure that every hour counts for our players and feels like time well spent, Mesmar explained.
We will see what news Ubisoft will bring us in relation to other of its sagas, but all these changes have also added controversy, such as the fact that the company has confirmed a price increase for its AAA games for the new generation.
In addition, we have recently learned that some Ubisoft employees do not want to work on Assassin’s Creed Project Red due to the bad behavior of its director.
