Twelve … This is the number of games included in the main story of Assassin’s Creed. If the turn that the latter has taken since Assassin’s Creed Origins has left some on the floor, it’s hard to deny that this is one of the most iconic licenses in recent years. But despite its strong position, Ubisoft is currently pretty discreet about it. Admittedly, there is Assassin’s Creed Infinity (which does not see the light of day yet) and a few rumors, but nothing tangible and concrete to put your teeth into for the end of the year. One could almost believe an end to the race for the license, which one very often hears being criticized from all sides. And yet, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has been a real success, hitting the record number of launch sales for an Assassin’s Creed game and giving Ubisoft a significant profit for the 2020 financial year. Nearly fifteen years after the launch of the first game, Assassin’s Creed is therefore still on the rise, well after the release of the most emblematic opus.
Assassin’s Creed, nearly 15 years of murder
If we all have a little favorite in the Assassin’s Creed class, Assassin’s Creed II is without a doubt the most popular. To elaborate on the formula of the first game, the title has managed to impose the license as a must. Between its infiltration side, the assassinations, the representation of various historical periods, its scenario centered around a hidden world conflict and its emblematic assassins, Assassin’s Creed then creates its own DNA and breathes a little fresh breath into the industry. In many respects, therefore, this second opus stands as the culmination of a license that will suffer under comparison for a long time thereafter, despite the improvements. Subsequent episodes mostly struggled to develop the same aura. Some, like Assassin’s Creed Unity or Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, are not remembered for good reasons. Faced with these few setbacks and a constantly evolving market for video games, Ubisoft recently decided to change the Assassin’s Creed formula profoundly.
In 2017, Assassin’s Creed Origins arrives and puts a big kick in the historic formula of the Ubisoft license. Minor infiltration, an assassin / temple conflict that has become almost secondary, the disappearance of the Assassin’s Order as we know it … The changes are numerous and some fans of the license can not find their account. But others still stick to this new formula, which seems to drive the license to the top of sales. For if Origins has obscured these various points, it is to emphasize others. From this opus, therefore, we find ourselves with gigantic open worlds, a greater emphasis on the historical side, a hundred hours of content, or even further exploration. If many of them regret the previous DNA of the license, they are at least as much to appreciate this new formula and have embraced it. It’s hard to say what the license has in store for us in the future, however Ubisoft has a real goose with golden eggs in its hands, and dropping it would be a shame. While we wait to find out more, we invite you to take a quick look at the series through a quiz. The goal ? Test your knowledge of the license. Real mentor or simple novice?
