Toronto Sun writes: " The game-making gurus at Ubisoft Montreal have finally shed some light on Assassin's Creed II, the upcoming sequel to their 2007 blockbuster about a medieval hitman eliminating key figures during the Third Crusade.
This time the action jumps forward 300 years to Renaissance-era Italy, with a new assassin in the spotlight and new foes to terminate through stealth, subterfuge and stabbing. Lots of stabbing.
We snagged an exclusive chat with Assassin's Creed II producer Sebastien Puel and grilled him for details about the sequel, due out this holiday season for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. (There was no knife-to-the-throat duress involved, honest.)"
