They're just churning them out now, like Call Of Duty, I feel its one of those games that get replaced by a "successor" in a matter of months or a years time like Call Of Dutys, the grasp of the storyline is slipping, multiplayer is almost exactly the same, maybe they should go back to a single Assassin again like AC2-Revelations or something, I just feel Assassin's Creed has become one of those games that become dry quickly, after you complete the main storyline, and do a few explorations, maybe try out multiplayer and its just dull after that, even the GTAs have more taste imo, I can go back and play GTA 3, Vice, San Andreas or even 4 and not feel this dullness that is coming from the Assassin's Creed titles these days, There's a ton of memorable moment in a few of those GTAs and other titles "All you had to do was follow the damn train CJ!" After I finished AC3 it got uninstalled, I feel I'll do the same with AC4, it's a shame really because the concept of it is kinda deep, the Animus, Templars etc using real world locations, conspiracy theories and spinning them to the game's view and perspective and making their own story out of it.
Imagine if they made a Bioshock game every year (Yes I know the studio got shutdown recently) Imagine they made a Far Cry, an Infamous or a Mass Effect game every year, there's one thing with progressing the storyline with sequels and new places to go, but if you haven't got any depth, memorable moments and the same gameplay to show every year it's going to get dull.
Watch Dogs looks promising, I hope I dont see Watch Dogs 3 in 1.5 years time.
