My reaction when I first heard of this:
After I saw the teaser:
I always wanted an Assassin's Creed game on France, but now that the series is just spamming itself through yearly installments and no continuation to the present story whatsoever (with the whole Google/Abstergo First Person segment in AC IV being totally worthless).
And for a whole "Welcome to Next-Gen" thing, the graphics don't look anything visually appealing like in Metal Gear Solid V, Witcher 3 or Watch Dogs.
But, graphics are the thing I least care about, so that doesn't get in my way TBH.
