Next Assassin’s Creed biggest yet — Guillemot

The next Assassin’s Creed title will be the biggest yet, Ubisoft has said. And we should expect it this year as, according to CEO Yves Guillemot, “delivering regular installments and expanding the brand to other platforms will continue to satisfy the demand, while at the same time attracting new fans.”

Last year’s Revelations was a top 10 title in the US for the calendar year. Proof that “the demand is definitely there,” the exec says, adding: “And we’re confident that the next installment of Assassin’s Creed will be the biggest to date.”

While no official announcement has been made yet, the game — previously said to be a “major, full-fledged” offering — is expected to ship this fall. It’s been said to be Desmond’s “grand finale” but with new characters being introduced as well.
