"To be honest, I'm not sure we're there yet," UK marketing boss Murray Pannell told Eurogamer when asked whether Assassin's Creed will be as big as GTA. "

I really enjoyed Assassins Creed 2 :)

It was all based on conspiracy such as the mason's, illumunati and all

Assassins Creed 2 was great, I loved that game. However, I don't think it will ever be as big as GTA...ever.

Ubisoft saying Assassins Creed will be as big as GTA, is like Pinocchio saying he's a real boy.

A great series of games, but to beat GTA sales is optimistic at best

Strange_Evil2898d ago

The game sold more than 7 million on both PS3 and 360 and that too at a time when games like MW2 and UC2 were released... So it's a big IP, maybe not as big as GTA now, but for a second outing it's not bad.

captain-obvious2898d ago

I dot think that it well be as big as GTA
PPL some times want to drive fast cars and shoot whores in the face with golden UZIs
now you cant do that in assassin creed

The problem with this claim (and I agre with T9X69), GTA has legendary status because its been genre defining. GTA has been around for so many years, assains is fairly new.
Should it become like GTA one day, it wont be for a few years at least.
Unless they turn out a game every year, but that will hurt the franchise, because they will just be milking it.

And sometimes people want to scale walls, run and leap across roof tops like an acrobat, and jump 30 feet down onto an unknowing victim driving a dagger deep into their neck. Can't do that in GTA.

GTA has more generalised gameplay which caters for all type of gamers whereas Assassin's Creed doesn't so no, AC will never be like GTA.

RedDevils2898d ago

AC will never be popular like GTA, if AC can define the Genre like Lbp then it will have the chance but however it's not

your comment has no relevance to this topic kthxbye :I

TrevorPhillips2898d ago

2 different games what are you on about, plus this article does not mention anything about halo.... O_o

Spenok2898d ago

It's always possible. Assassins is the best selling new IP of this generation. And so far 2 sold better then 1, and if that keeps up, then eventually, it "could" happen.

TrevorPhillips2898d ago

Do any of you guys know what Illuminati is?

DelbertGrady2898d ago (Edited 2898d ago )

It's the american word for 'democracy'?

@Agent-X - Interesting. Where can I meet these people?

TrevorPhillips2898d ago

They are the ruler of this world, they worship lucifer. This has been going around for generations now, ever since the babylonian days.

Eamon2898d ago

And Kanye West is the antichrist


Rumor2898d ago

you guys should really look into this occult meaning of stuff. they have a plan, NEW WORLD ORDER

Calm Down Sunshine2898d ago

I'm afraid Assassin's Creed doesn't have the simplistic story needed to capture the mass moron market.
