Future Assassin's Creed sequels may involve sharing your game world with friends and other players, according to a new interview with the lead designer of the latest in the series, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

"I think we're going toward a gaming place where the open world will be shared with other players. More and more," Black Flag's lead designer Jean-Sebastien Decant has told Game Reactor. "Socially speaking, but also maybe multiplayer stuff. And we will have to consider the open world much more like a platform that we could sustain for years.

It's all thanks to Ubisoft's upcoming hacking thriller Watch Dogs, in which players games will leak into one another. "Watch Dogs is kind of showing us the path for the future. Absolutely. But we have to create a... We have to respect our brands. So if we have to go that way with Assassin's Creed we have to think about how it could fit into Assassin's Creed."

Decant is very aware that game franchises grow stale if they keep repeating themselves, and finding a way to evolve Assassin's Creed while staying true to what fans love is top of his agenda.

"There is this idea of having the parkour - you can jump around - and then the notion of freedom that combines everything," he said. "These are the roots of Assassin's Creed. We will try and work and build upon them. We cannot tell you that we're happy and this is how we want the game to be and we're going to do ten more games with exactly that same gameplay. No, we are unhappy. We want to do more. There are lots of things we want to refine on the combat side, on the parkour, on the stealth. Of course."

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is out now. As for Assassin's Creed V... we'll have to wait and see.
