Ubisoft: New Assassin's Creed Will Be A Big Surprise
Last year's Assassin's Creed II was absolutely one of 2009's best, which is why we can't wait to learn more about the sequel.
However, despite the intrigue caused by the following comments, we can't be entirely sure if Ubisoft Europe boss Alain Corre is indeed talking about Assassin's Creed III. According to GamerZines citing a GamesIndustry.biz interview, Corre appears to be talking about the next AC, so we can only assume it's ACIII. He says the next entry in the series will "surprise everybody" and he's confident that despite the apparent uniqueness of the title, it'll still be a "big success." It certainly sounds like he's talking about ACIII:
"We need to put enough energy and talent into each new game, so it can become better than the previous one."
Well, it may be the new multiplayer-enabled installment, which is on Ubisoft's calendar for release in the 2010 fiscal year. The rumor is that it'll be a spin-off, although we keep hearing that Ezio will absolutely return in the true sequel...why it would "surprise everybody," though, we're not sure. ACII has already sold over 8 million copies and that's one hell of a tremendous accomplishment, so more titles in the franchise are inevitable. We'll try to get more info on any game with Assassin's Creed in the title; the games are just that good.
