Massive Entertainment Cranking On Assassin's Creed Title?
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood was yet another stellar entry in Ubisoft's franchise, and we all know yet another title is on the way.
The publisher wants it to release towards the end of 2011 - thereby turning AC into an annual phenomenon like Call of Duty and Madden - although it hasn't been confirmed. However, we're fairly certain that's in development with Ubisoft's premier internal staff, which is why Massive Entertainment's project has to be something quite new. Joystiq spotted a recent Tweet from Massive, which states that the Swedish studio is "teaming up on a project for Assassin's Creed." They might be referring to the new 3DS installment, Assassin's Creed: Lost Legacy, and recent job listings at Ubisoft suggest Massive is currently toiling away on an MMORPG of some kind. Could we be talking about an AC MMO...? Or are they looking to branch out and try something new in the AC universe? Well, regardless of what it is, we're interested; this is one series that will always have our interest.
We expect to hear an official announcement some time soon, so stay tuned for the info.
