Assassin’s Creed Strikes Again In 2011
During an investor presentation, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has unveiled that the next planned Assassin’s Creed game, due release for later this year will be a full retail title rather than episodic or downloadable content. He was very tight-lipped on letting slip any further details regarding the forthcoming title, but did reveal that the company are planning to show off some information relating to it in May of this year – so we will just have to wait.
As part of the conference call, Ubisoft also revealed sales figures for the franchise. Latest release, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, has now shipped 6.5 million copies around the world, and they are expecting strong figures from the impending PC release of the title. They also stated that Ubisoft is now the number three publisher in both the US and Europe. The Assassin’s Creed franchise is now clearly one of the strongest at the company, but some fear that making the series a yearly release will have a negative impact on the quality of the games.
Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood was released in November of last year to great success, and we scored it an impressive 10/10. Read the full review here.
