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.

if there is to be a third assassin's creed why wait so long for the second? if the third takes 3 years to make then that's a total of 6 years, by then all interest will be lost because you have managed to out live the target audience. ok i want a decent quality but if you can't give it on a decent time-scale maybe rethink making sequels to games.

No longer than 2 yeas, Why?,
look at Gears of war 2: Major improvement high quality graphics better than the first one, and brand new gameplay with just 2 years .

I reckon wait. But not 3 years. Thats a bit long, people would get bored of waiting and not even bother. But someting like 1 and a half years or 2 is a good time to wait. Especially if you are going to make a third Assassins Creed.

Make the game longer, and have either shorter cutscenes or make them interesting.

Higher quality. I'll wait an extra three years, so long as it's WORTH it.

quality titles that last and don't get boring. I really looking forward to Prince of Persia, though.

I didnt think the original was that great because of the very long cutscenes that you cant skip. Hopefullly that will be fixed and maybe a longer story with more re-play value
