Darby McDevitt, lead writer of the Assassin’s Creeds series, said Ubisoft has plans for a decade or more of content for the future of the series.
“We’ve created 500, 600, 700 years worth of history that we hope to start teasing out for the next 10, 20 years or however long we’re around,” McDevitt said. “I particularly love the lore. I’ve been working the past two years, with all the other writers, on getting a great document together on the First Civilization.”
As the company has annualized releases for the series, McDevitt’s statement could translate to as many as 20 more editions of the open world, historical fiction games.
McDevitt also added that Ubisoft doesn’t have plans to write off the modern day storyline that many fans noticed was given less screen time in the most recent release, Assassin’s Creed Unity.
Unity was originally planned to include a larger focus on the modern day world according to McDevitt.
“We always plan to have more modern day but we have to be really smart about how we do it,” he said. “There was a plan for a little more modern day in Unity –– a plan. Nothing that was actually cut.”
The next game in the series, Assassin’s Creed Victory, comes sometime this year after being confirmed by Ubisoft after details of the game surfaced late last year. The game is set in Victorian London in the 19th century.
