“Assassin’s Creed is an incredible franchise and there are a lot of expectations that it will continue to grow,” he said. “We are pleased with our continued success so far: in the U.S., Assassin’s Creed: Revelations was a Top Ten title for the entire calendar year, which shows that the demand is definitely there.”
“We think that delivering regular instalments and expanding the brand to other platforms will continue to satisfy the demand, while at the same time attracting new fans,” Guillemot added. “And we’re confident that the next instalment of Assassin’s Creed will be the biggest to date.”
EGM’s TAKE: Now that Ezio’s story has been completed will this year’s entry finally be the highly anticipated Assassin’s Creed 3? Based on previous road maps revealed by Ubisoft we’re guessing the answer is yes, as Ezio was to get three games before a new assassin took over. The question is who will be the new main character, and will Ubisoft give Desmond even more screen time in the present day now that his skills are sharpening? Whoever takes over the promise of the biggest game to date is enough to leave any Assassin’s Creed fan a drooling mess. With the extras added to single and multiplayer in Revelations, how can things possibly get bigger? A lot of questions have been asked here and not a lot answered, but isn’t that how the franchise works? If there’s no more questions then there’s no more Assassin’s Creed.
