Preparing for everyone to confuse Ancient Egypt with Classical or Medieval Egypt is more like it.

FC3 is also everything that's wrong with modern open world games. Horribly designed game outside of the missions. Open world games should encourage its freedom and experimentation, not give me a bunch of fetch quests and generic kill quests.[

Which open world game does not do this though? Every open world game has a bunch of fetch quests.

How can it be for Orbis and Durango when it was being in development since 2010-2011. I imagine they didn't have dev kits back then...plus the screen shot in the OP looks quite current gen.

Yeah I'm going to say cross gen which will also happen with Watch Dogs. Ubisoft is going to play it smart here.

Yeah. I expect Ubisoft to make all of their late 2013/ early 2014 'big' games cross-gen.

And possibly later as well. I don't expect a truly "next gen" Assassin's Creed for a while.

I don't know about you guys, but I honestly think Ubisoft is poised to have one of the most diverse lineups out of any publishers.

I mean, just from a pure historical standpoint (which most publishers don't usually touch with a 2 inch stick)...

They have:

The Assassins Creed Series
Watch Dogs (more from a futuristic standpoint)
Osiris
Prince of Persia

Plus they recently acquired THQ Montreal and have the presumbaly historical game

1666 (based around the great london fire)
Underdog (which could be prusmed as a historic game considering it's being lead by Patrice Desilets)

I mean, that's a pretty diverse historical game library all things considering what the rest of the publishers are outputting.

Based off 1 screen shot, and a handful of concept art you've already come to this presumption.

If someone told me that's from modded Assassin's Creed 1 or Assassins Creed 4 set in Egypt I would totally believe them.

Was PoP Zero supposed to be the cel shaded one? Anyway this looks like it could turn out to be pretty cool, or at least have some awesome day/night sequences considering the environment. Would be nice to see them get some Journey style sand working too.

So Patrice Desilets comes back to Ubisoft just in time to see two franchises he worked on getting shat all over.

edit: So this is not PoP anymore? Make that one franchise then.

Ubi's current console games run like shit anyway, I shudder to think what their PS360 versions of 'next gen' games will be like.

So which Ubisoft studio is developing this? I'm assuming Montreal?

They're also working on Watch_Dogs, R6: Patriots, and AC4 but they do have a ridiculous number of employees so it seems plausible.

Far Cry 3 is amazing (in a different way than 2). Assasin's Creed 3 continues Assassin's Creed: Revelations' trend of wasting players' time with too much useless/context-based complexity and training that takes HOURS. Splinter Cell: Conviction is a great action game.

Can't comment on Liberation, so it's a Vita game and I don't care.

I loved HAWX. Didn't like the voice-based RTS. Rainbow 6 Vegas and Rainbow 6 Vegas 2 were cool. Haven't played anything else they've done.

It will be an up-port like every early game on next gen systems.

Could be cool if it wasn't "from the studio that brought you Ass Creed". Might not be the same team though? Whatever, it's Ubisoft, so I'll remain careful anyway.

Open world part worries me. Actually if its anything like Assasins Creed 3 then I'm worried.

Too early to tell but will keep an eye on it. Generally at least Ubi puts good effort into a brand new IP. Its when they start milking the franchise that they go shitty.

Doesn't look like it. I'm a bit bummed, but excited at the same time.

It's been too long since a good PoP. Forgotten Sands was alright, but it definitely felt like it could've used more work.
