In fact, watching Ubi's conference was a real double-edged sword for me. I continue to find myself really impressed with the subjects/locations/themes that Ubi focuses on with so many of their games. The Division, Ghost Recon, For Honor, Rainbow 6, all look amazing to me. But past experience has taught me that Ubi has a hard time making the gameplay anywhere interesting enough to match the environment.
This mismatch of awesome location and art-design, but lackluster gameplay has plagued every AC game except Black Flag. From what people said about Watch Dogs, sounds like it turned out mediocre too.
