Ubisoft confirms sequels and shocks the world

I hope you’re sitting down for this: Ubisoft has confirmed that sequels for Assassin’s Creed, Red Steel, Ghost Recon and Splinter Cell are coming before March 2010 (that’s the future!). While rumblings have been going around these wild internets that Assassin’s Creed and Red Steel, which sold ~14 trillion copies combined*, would be getting sequels, it’s nice to get something concrete. And hey, Splinter Cell: Conviction has been hiding in the bushes for so long, it would be nice to see its face so we can file that police report.

Ubi also made mention of a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fighter for Wii developed by Game Arts who know a thing or two about those kind of games. Although some will debate Super Smash Bros. Brawl as being a real fighter and I say that’s what GameFAQs’ forums are for (zing!). The enigmatic I Am Alive is expected out within the release window, slipping from its surprise buttsecks March 09 (snicker) release. Looks like the folks at Ubisoft have a little something for everyone coming in the next year. I know I’m one of the 19 people that actually enjoyed Assassin’s Creed and Red Steel so I’m slightly pants-tented.
