It is starting to look good for 2010! Assassins Creed 2 has been confirmed and will be in our greedy little hands by March of 2010. A number of other titles have been announced as well.
Ubisoft’s third quarter earnings report has finally officially confirmed that the sequel to 2007’s best selling assassinate-em-up, Assassin’s Creed, will be available before the end of March 2010. While technically impressive, Assassin’s Creed was a bit lacking in the gameplay department, we felt. A great proof-of-concept, but without enough fresh content to keep from getting stale after a while. Something we’re hoping to see improved in the sequel. Ready for another year of seeing Jade Raymond wherever you turn?
The report also mentions that there will be seven franchise titles being released during the fiscal year starting this April, including Splinter Cell Conviction (which we can assume is still 360 exclusive), Ghost Recon and, as we’ve already mentioned, Assassin’s Creed 2. There will also be three new IPs, including I Am Alive. No other games in these categories were mentioned, so no doubt Ubisoft has a few more surprises up its sleeve.
