  • My comment is for Jeff Cannata.

    I'm glad you're enjoying Assassin's Creed 3 but I must ask you. Don't you think that with every irritation it seems like the dev team are getting further away from what the core of AC games. Ship battles are fun and and all but what does it have to do with being an Assassin?

    The game just seems to become more like a comic book story and less about being a lone assassin fighting against a group of people hell bend on world domination. That's why to me the first AC will be the the purest (read, not the best) in the series.

    It just feels like every game game in the series is trying to 1Up (sorry for the pun but I couldn't resist) the one that came before it. I would not be surprised if the next AC you will be commanding a huge army. I have a feeling the next game in the series will be set in the US civil war time and Abraham Lincoln will be featured.

    I just feel like they are getting further away from the creed of the AC game. I hope they give the series a long deserved rest once Watch Dogs comes out.
