A lot of people on this forum asked for it…


I talked to Yves at E3 today about the idea of an interview with the AC community and he responded pretty enthusiastically. That said, his schedule is pretty busy and there’s a chance the interview might not happen but I'm going to do my best to make it work.


Again: I’m collecting questions, but the interview might not happen.


I think it goes without saying to be respectful in any questions you have. Use this link to submit and vote on questions for Yves: http://www.google.com/moderator/#16/e=1fc052


Don’t ask questions in this thread, they’ll be ignored.

Loomer... the fact that this "might" happen makes you one awesome guy imo!

Still hoping for Corey one Day too! Can't wait I hope it happens!

Asking a bunch of questions in hopes that just 1 gets answered. My plan is working so far. :rolleyes:

Much appreciated.

I personally wanted to know about the Templars and Modern day plot progresson (and admittedly a bit curious about connor) but whatever.

If other people don't want to know, I won't push it.


edit:

Oh pfft I'm an idiot.

This guy is a CEO.

I'm asking the wrong questions to the wrong guy.

I'm downvoting some of the ones that are AC centric because I don't think Yves will actually have any satisfying answers to those.

It was the one about Modern day.

Yeah I deleted it steve. My bad.

This person is a CEO anyway.

I assumed he was a creative director or writer off the bat. My questions aren't suitable for him.

Jexx it's funny that we are almost asking the same questions.

@steve

Yeah me too.

But I think we should save that for an interview with the creative director or one of the lead writers.

Any chance we'll get an interview with one of those, Loomer? :o

Looks at the ubisoft logo. His favorite color is Blue, CONFIRMED!

Don't feel sad! it's an interesting question!

I see your point, but there is no harm in asking.

I already finished collecting questions for Unity's Creative Director and Lead Writer.

So yeah, most of you already figured this out but don't bother asking Yves story questions...

can someone ask if he's aware of his negative reputation around certain fanbases? I'm too chicken to do that

you can ask! just check Anonymous vs showing your name. We'll all know it you but still he doesn't! haha.

The Unity developer questions aren't that bad, skimming over them.

Though I wish the modern day question asked how much progression in the Juno saga there'd be rather than the already answered "will it be first or third person" question.


edit:

and nobody asked if templars would serve a role other than villains in this game. HNGHHH

I don't really get the hate though

"Man maximizes profits in company he owns - and annualizes series because the consumers want it! Poilce are on the lookout."

He's also really nice and softly spoken when he talks - he's not Darth Vader.

I really hope that Loomer doesn't breeze over some of my questions because I'm asking so many >.<

They are up voted by the community so if ones up top it'll be answered.

It's a little unfair to ask too many though...

Nobody asked if the templars would have tricorn hats.

That's not something they're going to come right out and say... but the Polygon interview seemed to imply that they're exploring the themes of fanatics on both sides becoming more like each other than they realize, and I don't think they're just talking about the French Revolution.

Can you cut it down to 3 at most? A lot of these are good questions but I'm not going to do a community interview where half the questions are from one person.

Jexx21
06-11-2014, 09:34 AM
I cut it down to 5, will choose 2 more to remove later (hopefully).

For my first question will the PS TV cause you to adapt the same rental model. And my second is, will investing in the Wii U cause you to not venture into the Occulus? Now for my final question, do you choose which games are released for the Wii U?
