Hey Ubisoft, I've got your next big idea for Assassins Creed for you. We live in a day and age where big block-buster titles come out every year. Like Call of Duty--there's no doubt that though there will be a new Call of Duty each year that there will still be a huge user base for each Call of Duty that comes out. That's fine and all that, but what about the multiplayer part of games like Assassins Creed? If I booted up Assassins Creed Revelations, who would still be playing it? I'm sure some people would. When I load up AC:IV my XP from Brotherhood, AC:III is all lost and I must start over. The modes from Revelations didn't repeat in AC:III and I suspect AC:IV won't have the same maps as Brotherhood. This splinters your user base. What if I loved a mode or character or set-up from a previous Assassins Creed game? It's essentially a dead market.
So this is what you do: release a Assassins Creed Multiplayer game on the PSN and Xbox Live networks. This way you can add constant DLC to ONE user base of fans who work on one load-out & and one character customization. Imagine the skins from Constantinople, Early America and Pirates all running around in a map from Venice or Rome? New DLC bringing new customization options, new DLC with new skins for your multiplayer characters and best of all new maps with every new release of an Assassins Creed game. This will encourage one place for all AC fans who want to play multiplayer for a long time and really invest in building their XP. Make a budget $30 Assassins Creed Multiplayer bundle that sells online and stop just tacking multiplayer onto every new game--it'll unify your user base, create amazing variety in a single package that will make you TONS of money. On top of this, you won't have to spend extra money to re-tack on that multiplayer mode onto next year's Assassins Creed.
It's a good idea, I know...just send me a free voucher to download the PSN edition and the idea is all yours. Have fun making tons of money and making Assassins Creed fans happy everywhere...seriously...think of your community--make them happy--in turn it'll make you money.
