Look at how bad AC1 was in 2007. Compare it to contemporary games like Crysis and UT3. And then two years later they flop out another game that looked no better - In fact, worse in many aspects, just look at the shadows and draw distances. AC2 I found particularly frustrating, as I'd always wanted someone to make a game with that kind of Italian countryside for me to explore, and then they made a total pig's arse of it. Honestly, it was like looking at a game from 2002 outside the cities, like Hitman 2 or something. And they continued to recycle that damned engine.
The AC series has never been 'next gen'.
