Ubisoft: We'll Release Assassin's Creed Games Every Year

Also planning to support last-gen consoles in the future.
Speaking in a recent interview with Edge, Ubisoft vice president of creative Lionel Raynaud has defended the somewhat controversial yearly release cycle of Assassin's Creed games. "We are able to offer people a new Assassin’s Creed every year because they want Assassin’s Creed every year.” he said. He also added: "As long as this is true we would be very stupid to not satisfy this need, but it puts a lot of pressure on us to create something that will never disappoint." Ubisoft has released a new AC game every year since 2009's Assassin's Creed II, so it comes as no surprise to hear that this trend will continue.
Raynaud also revealed Ubisoft's plans to support the Xbox 360 and PS3 in the years to come. “We will have games for PS3 and 360 for this year and probably the years after.” We want to be able to provide games to people who are playing on these consoles."
Ubisoft recently announced Assassin's Creed Unity, which is set to launch on Xbox One, PS4 and PC later this year, with rumours of a second Assassin's Creed coming to the Xbox 360 and PS3 this year as well, with the new title being code-named "Comet."
