the game is amazing and deserve all the success. I hope Ubisoft don't turn this franchise into an annual series.

PS4 absolutely killed it. They better not rin this with yearly releases. 1 game every 2 years is perfect. If they want to milk it release an expansion for the gap year similar to blood dragoon.

I don't think a 2 year release cycle is good enough. The game feels too similar, which isn't completely bad. Many who enjoyed the game wish they diversified the game a bit more. In fact, all of Ubisoft's products are too homogenized.

But man, 54% of week 1 retail sales from PS4 is quite surprising.

seems Ubisoft has the better games lately otherwise people wouldnt complain (care) about them in the first place. EA and Activison had their days obviously.

considering they are reasonable for assassins creed at best you can say they have produced a mixed bag of good games and complete and utter crap.
