Ubisoft Will Eventually End the Assassin’s Creed Series

Watch Dogs Ubisoft

Ubisoft has revealed to the media that they will not allow the Assassin’s Creed name to get dragged into the dirt via ‘Guitar Hero’ style overkill of releasing too many titles. Eventually, though not stated how or when, Ubisoft has plans to kill off the franchise and give it a concrete end-point. There was talk about the series becoming a bit long in the tooth after fans were surprised how quickly the gap is closing between iterations. Assassin’s Creed III is a hate it or love it title for their cult following and casual consumers will begin having trouble keeping up with the many AC-related purchases that must be made to get the full AC experience as AC4 hits current-gen consoles Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U this October 29, 2013 as well as next-gen following after. This statement was also sort-of contradicted though when Ubisoft also stated that they could change their mind at any time, such is the case with forward-looking statements and this is not to be taken as set in stone as it is not a future-proof plan just yet.

Ubisoft Faces Lawsuit Over Assassin’s Creed Franchise

In what seems like just another one of those crazy lawsuits, (or is it), John L. Beiswenger is suing Ubisoft for allegedly ripping off his story (which seems to read exactly like the storyline of Assassin’s Creed). Will he be able to provide substantial evidence that actual copyright infringement occurred and not simply coincidental creativity? Only time will tell.

Leviathyn reports:

“According to Beiswenger, the creators of the Assassin’s Creed franchise stole the main premise of his own novel Link, a story about a scientific discovery that allows for ancestral memory to be “accessed, recalled, relived, and re-experienced” via an invention similar to AC’s animus. He also claims that the book includes themes of assassins, the bible, the Garden of Eden, and the Forbidden Fruit.

The author is asking for damages from not only the four games released since 2007, but also the guide books, comic series, and two trailers. If his request is honored, he will receive an amount no less than $1.05 million dollars. And, if the judge rules that Ubisoft did in fact infringe on his copyrights, Beiswenger could walk away with as much as $5.25 million. He also requests that the court prevent the release of Assassin’s Creed III and anything related to it.”
