Fans of Assassin's Creed like to decode riddles, right? Then they'll enjoy the cagey way the CEO of Assassin's Creed publisher Ubisoft described his company's line-up for next year.
On a call to address the company's financial performance and explain the delays of four upcoming games, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot was asked to describe his company's game line-up for next year.
Responding to a financial analyst who asked about the coming year's games, Guillemot said:
We have a very good lineup for next year… We have lots of products that are coming from the brands we own. You will see lots of follow-ups to the brands that are already established. We think you will also be able to see some elements concerning the Assassin's Creed licence.
Assuming the question referred to Ubisoft's next fiscal year, this plan would kick in in the 12 months starting on April 1, 2010.
No clarification on what those "elements" will be was provided.
The original Assassin's Creed launched in late 2007. A DS game was released in 2008. A console sequel and an original PSP game are slated for release this year. From Guillemot's comments, it appears that Ubisoft intends to continue delivering some sort of Assassin's Creed product annually.
