Ubisoft Sofia, the team that created last year's Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation, has been put to work on Assassin's Creed 4, which explains why there is no Assassin's Creed game on PlayStation Vita this year.

"Liberation actually did very well - we're very proud of it," game director Ashraf Ismail told Eurogamer. "Sales were fairly decent. But the focus for us was Assassin's Creed 4, for current-gen consoles and next-gen consoles.

"From a resource standpoint, the team that worked on Liberation is actually working with us on AC4. They're developing a specific part of the game for us."

He continued: "The amount of people working on AC4, Watch Dogs - that's a massive game - the focus within Ubisoft right now is on these two games, and then you have The Crew and The Division as well."

Assassin's Creed 4 will be released November 1 for Xbox 360 and PS3, with PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions to follow.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

Had Ubisoft really wanted a new Assassin's Creed title for PS Vita, surely it would have been able to find a team to work on it? You can't help but feel that sales of Liberation and the PS Vita in general haven't been strong enough to warrant a new game.
