Ubisoft have a vital year ahead of them. With the disastrous Assassin's Creed Unity demonstrating total publisher neglect, a lot of players are disappointed at the rushed nature of the first PS4 and XBOX One instalment of their beloved franchise. Ubisoft have a lot to atone for, and that's not even counting The Crew and Watch Dogs issues.

But thankfully, a lot of us are willing to forgive and forget in the hopes that the developer can turn around their streak of bad games with 2015. [Tom Clancy's The Division](tag:2684169) , [Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege](tag:2768317) and Assassin's Creed Victory represent their three biggest games for the year, and The Division is one of the most anticipated in any category. But could it exceed the success of AC?

Could Tom Clancy's The Division Beat Assassin's Creed Victory?

As we're aware, Assassin's Creed Victory will be following [The Order: 1886](tag:2707754) (terrible game), and heading to Victorian England. We don't know too much about the upcoming title, though we're sure E3 will have a whole host of information for us all. I wouldn't expect too much to change though.

I'm fascinated to actually know what the general public are thinking of Assassin's Creed games these days! To be honest, I really feel cheated by the franchise. The first game was an insane tease, and when Assassin's Creed 2 arrived, I couldn't believe how much the series improved. It was genuinely fantastic. Since then, despite a bit of fun in Assassin's Creed: Black Flag the series has felt dull and far too repetitive, and what on earth happened to the great story arc they were working on?!

The story in Assassin's Creed Unity is indicative of Ubisoft's laziness. It's the same thing over and over, simply pasted onto a new area and released as a new game. It's disheartening to see so much money poured into this franchise, but at least some of the profits are funding little gems like Child of Light and Valiant Hearts!

Are you guys still a fan of the AC Video Games? Are you looking forward to Assassin's Creed Victory? Let us know how you feel about the franchise in the comments! Could this be Assassin's Creed's last year on top? How many more instalments can they really make?

As I stare at Ubisoft's new IP, I can't help but get excited. I'm waiting to see if they can get something new going with the power of Assassin's Creed 2. I certainly hope The Division won't have the teething problems of Watch Dogs or The Crew. If so, we're in for another disappointing year. But The Division has the potential in my mind to exceed the success of Assassin's Creed Victory.

However, this could simply stem from the fact that I've long stopped caring about the AC games. What are your thoughts on Tom Clancy's The Division? I have no hope for AC Victory, and I hope that The Division can shine if it truly deserves it! Be sure to let us know what you think about Ubisoft and their 2015 franchises.
