After the release of Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, Ubisoft fans realized that the company decided to concentrate on quantity, and not on quality. The game gave gamers an open world with tasks and activities that stretched the gameplay for tens of hours.
Against the background of Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, the Unity project looks small, since the story takes 15 hours to complete. The adventures of Kassandra or Alexios will take 40 hours. In financial reports, Ubisoft boasted that the Odyssey pleases with its engagement indicators, and the company has no plans to return to more “small” adventures.
On average, players spend 60 hours in Odyssey, which is a lot for a single-player adventure. In addition, the project is supported by free updates, constantly filling the game with new content. Ubisoft began to invest more money in the development of projects but does not change the base price of $60. The company is not afraid to go this way, because games now live longer, and investments are paid off in the future thanks to microtransactions.
