Assassins Creed is one of the more popular video game franchises known to the industry. There are more than six installments in the franchise and with each passing year there are new entries in the series. This year there will be two new entries into the Assassins Creed franchise, one for the PlayStation 4/Xbox One and the other for the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360. The new assassins creed for the next gen consoles boast incredible visuals, the graphics look so realistic that you cannot tell the difference between real life and the virtual life. This is incredible because the Sony VR Headset will be compatible with this game when the headset is released.
Ubisoft announced today that last generation consoles will only have new Assassin Creed games for the next three years, afterwards every installment in the franchise will be made to cater towards the next generation consoles. This doesn’t surprise anyone in the industry as eventually the developers behind these games won’t be able to make any more titles for the last generation as they will have maxed out the capabilities of the graphics for the consoles.
Ubisoft made the announcement saying this, “Unfortunately the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 won’t be able to handle the visuals of any of the new assassin creed games we release on the next generation consoles. We know that fans of Assassins Creed on the last generation will eventually grow tired of the differences in the software so in order to not upset our fans we won’t be developing any more Assassin Creed games for the Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 after the next three years.”
