Assassin's Creed 3's project lead thinks the move to next generation consoles will be an "interesting hardware transition", as production costs counter the increase in graphical capabilities.
Creative director of the blockbuster, Alex Hutchinson, believes that the "jump" to new hardware will offer "a little bit more detail", but that with such a transition "comes higher cost".
"So in a weird way we're at that point where everything that is a plus is also a minus because we have to pay for it," explained Mr Hitchinson. "I think it's going to be a very interesting hardware transition for the business."
He also believes that the distance between blockbusters and "lower budget games" will grow even wider, citing a number of studios that collapsed under the strain of moving from PS1 to PS2.
Assassin's Creed 3 is out on October 31.
