After the sheer brilliance that is Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, we don’t blame you if you’re anxious to find out more about the series’ next instalment. Shortly after publisher Ubisoft revealed that Brotherhood has shipped 6.5 million units since its release in November last year (which understandably makes Ubisoft feverishly drunk on sweet, sweet success), Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot assured the gaming world that our next AC fix would definitely arrive this year.
“We will have an Assassin’s Creed this year,” stated Guillemot. “We are going to give you more details in May.” Ubisoft are clearly following through on their promise to mimic Activision’s business strategy, which involves inundating us with yearly releases of our favourite games – at least until the money well runs dry. We don’t really mind, so long as Ubisoft manages to maintain the stellar quality of the AC series.
On a related note, bear in mind that the PC version of Brotherhood is due for release next month, so PC gamers will finally get the opportunity to experience the game’s bodacioulescence.
