Assassin's Creed: Revelations Summary
It's been a few years since the original Assassin's Creed released, and there's been four major new titles since then. Obviously it's time for a bundle. Ubisoft usher in the Assassin's Creed Heritage Collection. They bill it as a "high value compilation" starting with the original haystack-diver Altair in Assassin's Creed all the way through to frontier-exploring Connor in Assassins' Creed III.
UbiSoft has reported that the company enjoyed a profitable 3Q of 2012, chiefly due to the success of Assassin's Creed 3 and "back catalog" sales. The publisher enjoyed an increase of 23% in year-to-year over Q3 2011, going from 652M euro million to 802M euro.
Swedish-based Ubisoft Massive is tinkering around on a next generation online RPG, according to game designer Marc Cartwright's LinkedIn profile. It's unclear if Massive is leading development or not. Speculatory eyebrows are raising at the notion this could be the 'God of War lite' project that was leaked back in August, which looked a little Prince of Persia, but wasn't related to the IP.
Ubisoft announced today that the Assassin's Creed Anthology, a collection containing every Assassin's Creed game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, will be released exclusively at Amazon in the UK on 30th November, 2012 for £119.99.
Ubisoft has announced that Assassin's Creed 3 has become the publisher's most preordered title in his history. While the publisher didn't give an exact figure, it did say that the game has doubled Assassin's Creed: Revelations preorder figures.
