It's the news you hoped for, and probably the news you expected, but Ubisoft has confirmed that while the upcoming Assassin's Creed III will mark the last time series hero Desmond Miles slips back in time to inhabit one of his ancestors, it won't be the last we see of the Assassin's Creed universe and that more games will follow on an annual basis.

"The way we see Assassin's Creed 3 now is as a franchise, like Mario or Resident Evil," creative director Alex Hutchinson told CVG. "It wasn't the original plan to be an ongoing series, no, but it became the plan."

For those who worry that putting out a new game every year will mean a drop in quality, Hutchinson has words of comfort. "Since when is something less amazing if you get a new one every year?" he argued. "If Breaking Bad was shown twice a week I'd watch it twice a week. If Radiohead put out an album every six months I'd gladly buy one every six months."

"If you can keep a series interesting and fresh then I don't see why it shouldn't go on", he concluded. "Nintendo has been great at reinvigorating their franchises, as have other Japanese companies, so we feel we can too."

Assassin's Creed III arrives on October 31st for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with versions for PC and Wii U to follow. The game takes place during the American Revolution, and incorporates realistic weather, wilderness locations and even naval ship-to-ship battles.
