New Assassin’s Creed installment confirmed for 2012

After it was announced that this year’s installment of Assassin’s Creed, which is to be released next week, would be the last involving Ezio Auditore, many of us were left wondering whether there would be another. We previously brought you news that an Assassin’s Creed movie was on the cards, although it was later reported to be destined for failure, and now Ubisoft has confirmed that there will be another game appearing in 2012.

The reports suggest that the game is already under development, which would make sense considering it is to be released probably this time next year. The news was announced during an earnings call recently where Yves Guillemot, Ubisoft CEO, confirmed a new Assassin’s Creed installment would be released next year.

Guillemot was also recently reported to have said a few things about Nintendo, seemingly giving them tips for successful sales of their flagship handheld console, the 3DS. He believes that better software is key to winning the mobile gaming war, which basically suggested that better games were needed in order for continual success with sales of the device. He also believes that the Wii U will be a great console.

Unfortunately when it came to details about next year’s installment of Assassin’s Creed, he refused to reveal any. I don’t know about you but the fact that the franchise will be continuing annually is exciting enough for us. In regards to more recent activities involving the franchise, Guillemot claimed that the Assassin’s Creed: Revelations pre-orders are significantly higher than last year’s Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood’s were, as PSU explains. However he believes that overall sales will be significantly less than last year’s game.

Are you excited to hear there will be another Assassin’s Creed game next year?
