Ubisoft Confirms They're "Working Hard" On Assassin's Creed 2
Assassin's Creed was one of 2007's best, and we at PSXE have been craving a sequel ever since completing that memorable adventure.
Unfortunately, we first heard that Ubisoft wouldn't issue a sequel unless there was enough fan demand for it. Hence, a number of petitions popped up, prompting the publisher to get moving, and we believe the multi-million-selling AC should've been enough to prove that a sequel would succeed. Well, whatever the reason, it seems Assassin's Creed 2 will become a reality. According to Joystiq, a Ubisoft executive confirmed that the team was "working hard" on the sequel, although he wasn't about to issue an estimated release date. Some say it may not release until 2010 but at this point, we only care about the confirmation that AC2 is indeed in the works, because we absolutely loved the original. Of course, if they speed up development, this sequel will immediately become one of our most anticipated titles of 2009...think there's a way the fans can once again play a role? You know, something like, "c'mon, we want it sooner!" Or won't that work?
Anyway, despite the rumors, this is the first time Ubisoft has issued an official reply to the question, and we couldn't be happier with the answer. Now we'll start scrounging about for any new info for Assassin's Creed 2. Stay tuned!
