Ubisoft coy on Assassin's Creed 3 2011 date

Ubisoft remains non-committal on reports that Assassin's Creed 3 will not be released in 2011.

This summer, Ubisoft associate producer Jean-Francois Boivin claimed the series' third outing will abandon the two-year release cycle and skip 2011, in order to give it a "breather".

Speaking to CVG, however, senior international brand manager Eric Gallant called the comments "personal opinion" - while keeping quiet on whether or not the statement's actually true. (Assassin's Creed: Revelations, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I thought they said it would be 2012 for the game but if there is another game I would be happy it is one of my favourite games this gen.

They did say 2012.

Don't they know 2012 is the end of the world? So they should release it earlier!

Lucreto the Associate Producer said that, and he just got smack down by the Senior International Brand Manager saying the Associate Producer is out of the loop, and the decisions are made with upper management above his head.

So basically the developers have no controle over the franchise.

Its not uncommon to loose control of your franchise, especially if its successful.

wait, so AC:Brotherhood isn't a true sequel?
Thecraft1989  +   1737d ago
No its just pointless cashin to the next one comes out.

How is it pointless? It carries on the main story, and it has a unique multiplayer mode.

Would you rather have them rename it as Assassin's Creed III just so you don't think it's a pointless cashin.

Because, apart from the title of the game, it's a direct sequel.

AC3 and Bioshock Infinte are great game in 2012.
just wonder, there another good games in 2012? just tell me.
The Meerkat  +   1737d ago
Gran Tourismo 5 maybe.

Haha, funny >_>

ROFLMAO

It's should be 2012, as that's the year the Assassin's Creed Trilogy takes place..
Eamon  +   1737d ago
That's what I presumed as well.

I just hope Ubi don't go spilling the beans on ACIII until a fair amount of time has elapsed on ACB's release.
