Ubisoft is already working on the two Assassin's Creed games to follow this year's Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, but insists it's not rushing its development teams.
"We are making sure the teams who are creating the different iterations have enough time - two years, three years, so that they can take risk and they can change the concept enough so that it can be appealing and fresh," Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot told Kotaku.
Guillemot offered no details on the two games, but said innovation is key to keeping the fanbase interested.
"Really, what we see is that we can have the capacity to regularly come with innovation," Guillemot said. "That is, for me, the formula: if you can really change the game on a regular basis and bring in innovation your fans want a product very regularly. Our job is to make sure the teams have enough power, enough energy and enough time to take the necessary steps to create a high quality game."
As Ubisoft moves away from current-gen development expect the Assassin's Creed titles to become even more ambitious in their scope.
