Is prepared to wait in order to build anticipation for the sequel.
Speaking to Forbes, Laurent Detoc, president of Ubisoft North America, has revealed that the publisher will be returning to its hugely successful Assassin's Creed IP, but isn't rushing to do so. Instead Ubisoft plans to wait so that when the franchise does return "there will be more anticipation for it".
It's a lesson Ubisoft has learned with the Prince of Persia franchise. According to Forbes the first game, Sands of Time, sold over two million units during its first month, but back to back sequels didn't perform as well at retail. The publisher has taken a three year break from the franchise, with the Prince set to return in an all-new adventure this winter.
