If they were behind KoToR, hell, we'd see KoToR 5 already.

I can't care less for Watch Dogs, but FC3 and the silly spin-off were something that'll make me buy FC4 for sure. HoMM6 was fun, I'll buy HoMM7 too no matter the sad story behind it. And if JDR blesses AC3, hell, I could try that one too. If mobs don't respawn ofc.

But is it really good? I don't see how thousands of Nancy Drew games are positive for the adventure genre. Don't we need more variety?
Sure we need variety but not necessarily from ubisoft. There are plenty of other developers making games so if they want to focus on just franchises more power to them.

No interest in watch dogs? To each there own but that game looks excellent and would fall in to the variety category I would think.
