Let's try this again

Did you know that Assassin's Creed Unity didn't have a smooth launch? It's no secret that the highly anticipated title was a major disappointment for almost everyone due to its myriad glitches and flaws that mired an otherwise beautiful game with ambitious design changes, as we pointed out in our review. Post-launch patches and many apologies – such as in the form of free DLC – have remedied the situation slightly, but these mistakes have already dealt significant damage to the publisher's reputation like a hidden blade in the back. But in its third fiscal quarter earnings meeting attended by multiple analysts, Ubisoft still remained positive about its franchise's future.

The publisher believes that it has established a stunning game engine to deliver top-of-the-line visuals, but this feat came at the cost of developmental issues. "In the case of Unity, we had to re-do 100 percent of the engine," said CEO Yves Guillemot. "When you do that, it's painful and it has to be re-calibrated. With this game, a few things were not perfect when it launched and it's going to help the brand shine in the future." Indeed, the company believes the stumbling blocks that came with Unity will assist it with the development of its leaked 2015 title, Assassin's Creed Victory. "We are very confident that the experiences earned and lessons learned on Unity, along with customer feedback, will help us take Assassin's Creed to the next level," Guillemot said.

Do you consider the publisher's comments to be as valuable as a Templar's lies, or will you stay your blade before slashing future Assassin's Creed games off of your wanted list?
