New Assassin’s Creed Confirmed For 2011

by Ernice Gilbert on April 12th, 2011, under Hot, News, PC, PS3, Ubisoft, Xbox 360

Looking at my AC: Brotherhood boxart now, I’m trying to find the date of release….Oh yeah, last October, I think. Well hang on to your sits, gamers, because according to Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot, a new Assassin’s Creed will be released this year, and it’ll be “something interesting around the…brand.”

Guillemot also boasted of his company’s rise from number 25 to number 3 in the world, and he’s fully confident that they could “beat those guys” and rise to number 1.

“We are the number three company in the world on our own – and our goal is to beat those guys. We got from number 25 to number three, so we think we can continue and that it is possible. It’s not certain, of course, but we are taking the steps that we think will get us there.”

Of course, Assassin’s Creed is one of the major reasons for the jump. The game is Ubisoft’s best selling and each new iteration sells more than the other. In fact, with just three games released, the franchise has already sold over 20 million units worldwide on all platforms. A respectable number in every sense.

Let’s just hope this new game continues the tradition of success both gameplay-wise and on the sales charts.

Thanks, MCV.

    no, november.
    november 20 if i remember right, a day after 2 released.
    sold over 20M just counting 1,2 and brotherhood.
    if you count bloodlines the PSP title, assassins creed and assassins creed discovery the 2 Iphone titles, and the DS and facebook iterations its sold allot more!
    best selling new IP if i remember right!
    not bad for what once was a poky french developer!
    i sooooooooooooooooooooo cant wait to play 3, just simply for the storyline!
    just finish brotherhood on my PC, the way they handled the truth video for the glyphs was pure genius!
    the story is what keeps me coming back for the series, the gameplays good and unique but the story is what keeps me there.
    as the saying goes, i come for the combat, but i stay for the story!
    best new IP ever, and one of the best IPs ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    doubt it.
    most i have heard of is hinting at the UK.
    Russia is another one thrown in there.
    i just hope they fix the dumb AI, and the stealth missions!
    this is suppose to be assassins creed, not splinter cell!
    thats what i cant understand about ubisoft.
    splinter cell is suppose to be a stealth series, so they turned conviction into a action game.
    assassins creed is suppose to be a action game, so they turn it into a stealth game.
    is it opposite day already?

    well an Assassin is suppose to be a silent killer and not be seen. He does not suppose to leave any trace of who killed the person, and get out without being seen.

    but you cant have a strict stealth game in such a open world.
    thats why splinter cell and MGS are restricted, so you can hide in areas and not have to worry about being seen.
    ACB you cant though, no matter where you are at least 1 person can see you.
    like the first level where you have to destroy Leonardo machines, every time id go somewhere a guard would see me, so i move somewhere else so a guard can see me, so i move somewhere else so a guard can see me.
    your in the living room but a guard can see you, so you move to the bedroom but a guard can still see you, so you move to the basement but a guard can see you, so you move to the kitchen but a guard can still see you, ect, ect.
    only spot you could go where no one could see you was to walk all the way to the right, hop over the ledge and shimmy across till you get to the end.
    but then you still had to climb up to swing across to the next area, and right where you swing across theres 2 guards behind you and one above you.
    i would not mind it being a stealth game, but the way the levels sort out you cant have a stealth game.
    its kinda hard to kill someone and not be seen if someone can always see you no matter where you go!
    then theres another problem, the games so linear!
    the mission where you have to dress in french armour for example, you have to go ahead and kill the french guards but you cant go too far ahead otherwise you desync.
    you cant go behind the guards otherwise you desync, so you have to get as much of a head start without getting too far ahead, and try take out the guards before he gets there.
    id be ok if you could go wherever you wanted, but you cant, the game shoehorns you into a small area and forces you to kill enemies without being seen.
    so if everyone can see you in that box, then tough cookies deal with it!
    then theres the last problem with the game being a stealth game, and thats the combat.
    the BEST part about this game is the different combat system, being a strict stealth game removes that.
    whats the point of that?
    id be like taking out the boss battles of GOW!
    the combat systems the best part of AC, so limiting you to single stab kills for 90% of the games missions is ruining the game, because your replacing new different engaging combat with simple boring single stab kills.
    i play AC for its different combat, and its great story.
    if i wanted a stealth game id go buy splinter cell, or MGS.
