You guys act like like it is the same development team making AC every year. Ubisoft has 3 separate internal developers working on different Assassins Creed games. AC 4 is being developed by the developers of AC Brotherhood which came out 3 years ago. This game didn't just start development after AC 3 last year, it's been planned for over 3 years by the development team of Brotherhood.

Just don't buy the games then. Those that enjoy the games can continue buying them, those that don't can just play something else. Though I guess your desire to complain is similar to why I clicked on topic #9001 complaining about the number of AC games.
You know you have been playing games too long when you shout out the window to turn off the lights during the day.=)
I've played each game, I've enjoyed each game, and I'm looking forward to AC4.
I understand that the games are being annualized, but everytime I play each new title, it just really sucks me in with each game. I really enjoy the alternate history and awesome locations each game builds and creates. As long as Ubisoft can maintain the level of quality of the past games, I'll keep playing.
I enjoy the alternate history and unusual locations too, which is why doing pirates for 4 is so amazingly boring to me.
