Two new Assassin’s Creed games in 2014?

According to Examiner, we may be getting two core Assassin’s Creed experiences next year. We already know January will see the release of PS Vita port, Liberation, on 360, PS3 and PC, so we’re assuming this doesn’t include that, but according to a source close to the matter, the first project is for next-gen platforms only (PS4 and Xbox One). The second project is for PS3 and Xbox 360.

Whether the second project would come to next-gen platforms as well is anyone’s guess, but this certainly creates an interesting scenario.

It is also being suggested that the series strategy is being reviewed going forward.

In a recent article on USGamer, it was suggested that the latest piece of content, Assassin’s Creed IV: Freedom Cry, will offer hardcore Creed fans a glimpse at the series’ future and give them an idea as to where the franchise is going next. Is it safe to assume that will tie in with one of these projects?

Will Edward Kenway get a chance to sail the seas all over again? Will Adewale assume lead responsibilities or will we be introducing two new characters to the franchise? Obviously this is all speculative at the moment, but news is sure to trickle out over the next few months.

On the back of Black Flag’s success, the franchise is once again enjoying critical acclaim and demand, but are Ubisoft pushing the series too hard?
