Ubisoft Toronto collaborating on next Assassin's Creed
Ubisoft Toronto has five projects ready to go after finishing Splinter: Cell Blacklist.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist developer Ubisoft Toronto has already begun working with other Ubisoft studios on the next Assassin's Creed title, which is due after this year's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.
Ubisoft Toronto studio manager Jade Raymond confirmed the news to Polygon and teased that the developer has five projects ready to go after shipping Splinter Cell: Blacklist in August.
"We have two big collaborations coming that we're not talking about, on two of the biggest franchises at Ubisoft," said Raymond. "We also have two new IP." The fifth project will be related to Splinter Cell.
Raymond also said that Ubisoft Toronto has completed its work on the multiplayer for the long-dormant Rainbow Six: Patriots.
While Raymond wouldn't talk about specifics relating to the next Assassin's Creed, she said it was great to be working with some of the people who helped start the Assassin's Creed franchise back in 2007.
"The thing that's great to me is that there is still some of my favorite people who, you know, we were in the trenches shipping that first one," said Raymond. "We lived through all of that stuff together and some of those guys are still on the franchise and have been there."
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is being developed by eight Ubisoft studios: Montreal, Singapore, Sofia, Annecy, Kiev, Quebec, Bucharest, and Montpellier. It will be released for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii U on October 29 in North America and November 1 in Europe.
