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.
