Ubisoft moving away from heavily scripted games
According to Ubisoft chief creative officer Serge Hascoet in an interview with Le Monde, each of the company’s games should be an “anecdote factory.”
While the games will still have a traditional story, more unexpected things can happen if players have more freedom like in series such as Watch Dogs and Far Cry. According to Hascoet, players should express themselves, and then share these unexpected moments with their friends.
The next Assassin’s Creed will be the first to fully embrace this change.
“For the next Assassin’s Creed, the designers have created a system in which what I do not only has meaning just now, but also long-term. My actions will change the world.”
