So, whereas it seems like that report will not be totally correct (at the least primarily based on what Schreier was in a position to study presently), the core parts of that leak nonetheless paint an interesting image. Despite the franchise’s latest business successes, it actually does sound like the subsequent main Assassin’s Creed recreation will dial issues again a bit and maybe strive to lower down on among the franchise’s latest gameplay glut.
