While fans are waiting for the new Assassin's Creed Odyssey that will bring everyone to ancient Greece as Alexios and Cassandra, Lionel Raynaud, EVP of Ubisoft, is already talking about the new chapter that will see the light on the next gen consoles, presumably PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett.
On his blog Raynaud explained that the power of the new machines will change the approach that will occur with the triple A titles, allowing in the case of Assassin's Creed to have more timelines and more historical epochs in a single game.
It is also mentioned however Watch_Dogs e Far Cry, titles that may have different cities, even from different countries in the world, connected to each other:
In Assassin's Creed we could have different historical periods in the same world using the Animus to travel. In games like Far Cry or Watch_Dogs, however, you could have different areas of the world connected together to travel, one game and one experience.
Speaking of the Triple A titles in general, Ubisoft's EVP explained that probably we will have less games but more support: stories that will expand and allow players to spend more time on one game, without the need to buy many.
Who knows what the new approach will really be? Assassin’s Creed and if the big games of the next generation will allow to be enjoyed for many months, maybe years, thanks to a lasting support from the software houses.
