CEO Yves Guillemot hinted another AC property would hit next year, but Geoffroy Sardin confirms it's in fact "another big" one. Assassin's Creed III?
"It’s the best launch in the history of Ubisoft’s European sales, and our best-selling launch title ever," declared Ubisoft's EMEA chief of marketing and sales, Geoffroy Sardin, speaking about Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and its stellar reception.
“Apart from the big marketing campaign that we started a few week ago, and which continues over the coming weeks, the main reason the game has succeeded is that we transformed the brand from a single player one to a multiplayer one,” he noted.
Brotherhood is the first time a multiplayer element has been introduced for the series and Ubisoft will be releasing some free DLC soon to add a new game mode and online locale to celebrate, with more likely planned to follow.
As for something AC in 2011? "Yes, Yves mentioned it last week in our financials – and more details will be forthcoming. But what I can say is that next year we will have another big Assassin’s Creed game,” teased Sardin. Brotherhood is a direct sequel to Assassin's Creed II and its leading ancestor Ezio, who relocates to Roma.
