Xbox One's Kinect brings nothing to the Assassin's Creed experience, Assassin's Creed 4 associate producer Sylvain Trottier has told Edge.
"Would working on the next gen only be better? I never felt like working [across two generations] was worse," Trottier explained. "It never felt like it was a handicap that was slowing us down.
"At the same time, for example, [there are] new things that are introduced by the next gen, like Kinect, but it doesn't really blend in with the AC experience. A more precise Kinect isn't something that will help Assassin's Creed. I won't do the leap of faith in my living room for real."
Another glowing report for Kinect certainly won't help change the opinion of those who feel the device is adding cost to the Xbox One with no benefit to the gamer.
