Twelve … This is the number of games included in the main saga of Assassin’s Creed. If the turn that has taken place since Assassin’s Creed Origins leaves some on the floor, it’s hard to deny that it’s one of the most attractive licenses in recent years. But despite its strong position, Ubisoft is now more cautious about it. Granted, there’s Assassin’s Creed Infinity (which won’t see the light of day anytime soon) and some rumors, but there’s nothing tangible and concrete to get your teeth into by the end of the year. One can almost believe an end to the race for the license, which is often heard criticized on all sides. And yet, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was a real success, breaking the record for the number of launch sales for an Assassin’s Creed game and allowing Ubisoft to post a significant revenue for 2020. to the prosecutor. Nearly fifteen years after the launch of the first game, Assassin’s Creed has therefore continued to rise, following the release of the most emblematic opus.
Assassin’s Creed, nearly 15 years of murder
If we all have a little favorite in the Assassin’s Creed class, Assassin’s Creed II is undoubtedly the most popular. Deepening the formula in the first game, the title was able to impose the license as necessary. In the midst of its intrusive part, the murders, the representation of different periods of history, its scenario centered on a secret conflict in the world and its emblematic assassins, Assassin’s Creed then makes of its own DNA and breathed a little breath of fresh industrial air. At many points, this second opus therefore stands as the apogee of a license to suffer comparison long after that, despite advances. Subsequent stages struggle, for the most part, to develop the same aura. Others, like Assassin’s Creed Unity or Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, are not remembered for good reasons. Faced with these few setbacks and an ever-growing video game market, Ubisoft recently decided to change the formula to Assassin’s Creed.
In 2017, Assassin’s Creed Origins arrived and put a big kick on Ubisoft’s historic licensing formula. Less infiltration, an Assassin/Templar conflict that has become almost secondary, the disappearance of the Order of Assassins as we know it … There were a lot of changes and some license fans couldn’t find their account. But others follow all the same with this new formula that seems to be pushing the license to the top of sales. Because if Origins covers these different points, it is to give weight to others. From this opus, we find ourselves with a lot of open worlds, a greater emphasis on the historical part, a hundred hours of immersion or even more exploration. If many of them blame the past DNA on the license, they are at least in gratitude for this new formula and for its adoption. It’s hard to say what the license has in store for us in the future, however Ubisoft has a real goose with golden eggs in its hands and dropping it is a shame.
