Ubisoft Sofia working on Assassin’s Creed IV, is why Vita isn’t getting its own game

Last year, Ubisoft put out Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation alongside the console game. But there’s no similar plan for Assassin’s Creed IV.

Game director Ashraf Ismail told VideoGamer that Ubisoft Sofia – the team behind Liberation – is currently assisting with development of Assassin’s Creed IV. So even though Liberation’s sales were “fairly decent”, the PS Vita won’t be getting an Assassin’s Creed this year due to the amount of resources AC IV requires.

“Liberation actually did very well – we’re very proud of it. Sales were fairly decent. But the focus for us was Assassin’s Creed 4, for current-gen consoles and next-gen consoles. From a resource standpoint, the team that worked on Liberation is actually working with us on AC4. They’re developing a specific part of the game for us. The amount of people working on AC4, Watch Dogs – that’s a massive game – the focus within Ubisoft right now is on these two games, and then you have The Crew and The Division as well.”

So if you have another console why would buy AC4 for the 3ds. Sounds like a waste of $$

Not AC4, it would be "Assassin's Creed Winter is Coming™" a spin-off in Westeros.

No surprise. I long knew this when I found out the studio listings.

It doesn't necessarily mean there won't be one in future. I'm sure they just wanted to make sure ACIV is perfect, which doesn't surprise me at all given the number of complaints before it has actually been released. :eek:

Umm... this makes me wonder how AC4 will be. It seems that they have pulled alot of resources into this game alone. If this helps with the overall quality of the game I really don't have a problem with no vita release this year.
