Say what you will about the Assassin’s Creed series but Ubisoft has done so much with this long-running franchise in the past 12 years that it’s hard to ignore it.
Some may say that the series has grown stale, but Ubisoft continues to give fans new experiences that make each entry feel different from the last, especially in recent years.
Ubisoft also does a fantastic job at bringing new players into the series thanks to each game having its own self-contained story, for the most part. You could jump into Black Flag right now and still have fun with the story and the excellent ship combat and exploration.
Assassin’s Creed Origins and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey have also been game-changers for the series, opting in for a more traditional open world RPG with a leveling system and plenty of sidequests.
Considering that Ubisoft is taking a break with the series, at least for this year, we can expect the next entry to blow our minds with the setting that they decide to go with next. I’m hoping for a new title that takes place in Japan, but I won’t be holding my breath.
