It seems like there is no shortage of statements on the current state of gaming, and today is no different. Assassin's Creed III creative director Alex Hutchinson believes AAA games are becoming fewer in number, with AC3 as one of the last. Some studios have turned to smaller projects while independent developers have risen. Many indie games feature compelling gameplay while offering excellent value, especially when you factor in the sheer number of indie bundles. Certain indie games even have incredibly small staff, with a few people or even just one person working day and night to deliver the product. Big AAA games that have multiple studios working on them, like Assassin's Creed III, are not that common anymore, according to Hutchinson. He says it is the "last of the dinosaurs," which may be a true statement in the coming years. There are still AAA titles on the horizon, but there are also plenty of indie games in development, too.
