Even though Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be coming to next gen platforms, the game will still be developed first on the PC, then get ported over to the other consoles later. The game will be the biggest Assassin’s Creed game to date, with multiple studios working on the game. Hugues Ricour, senior producer of the game, has told Edge that they along with five other studios are helping Ubisoft Montreal create this monster of a game.
“So we do work on a high-end PC, and that helps, that simplifies things,” he said. “We are discovering these opportunities for Assassin’s Creed in general so we know games are becoming more social, more connected, and we know this next generation is going to help us. Assassin’s Creed, originally, was a very singleplayer focused game but we have a section of our audience that loves the multiplayer. However, a lot of our fans are very engaged with the story, and the narrative, so how do we combine this with a connected experience? It’s still to be defined and we have a few good ideas. The game will remain true to its roots, and its roots are in the narrative and immersing the player into an experience and a story.”
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be launching later this year for basically every major platform, including next gen consoles. Which platform will you pick it up on?
