Richard Walker

Don't get too excited, as there have been no details revealed whatsoever, but Assassin's Creed III has been officially confirmed by Ubisoft today, complete with an autumn release date in line with the rest of the series.

Apparently, Assassin's Creed III has been in development for three years according to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot and will be arriving this October. "We will push the title a lot because it's a fantastic product that the team has been working for three years," said Guillemot. "What we have seen is just fabulous."

Assassin's Creed III will be releasing on October 30th, 2012, presumably picking up where Assassin's Creed: Revelations left off, which has also shipped 7 million copies since launch, Ubisoft confirmed.

  • It's way too early for the next game in the series. They should wait a few years really.
  • Awesome.
  • 3 years they've been working on it? What an awesome surprise!
  • I hope its just single player. They havent really mastered the multiplayer aspect of this game.
  • Looks like Ubi has got a regular Call of Duty on their hands now
  • I love you Ubisoft so much, you release 3 awesome AAA titles in 2012. Ghost Recon: Future Soldiers - May Far Cry 3 - September Assassin's Creed III - October Please do not letdowns on those titles. Believe you wouldn't messy up :):)
  • @5 Was literally about to type the exact same thing
  • @1 Its not too soon to start the brand new chapter seeing as the Ezio trilogy is over. And anyone who says "Shouldnt this be AC5" is stupid.
  • Cannot wait to finish of this great story. The multiplayer didn't like it in BH but really got into it in ACR. Although it was only for a month or 2. Nothing really enough to keep me going back. But a nice add on for a single player game. Roll on AC III
  • Shouldn't this be AC5
  • Lol, just keep churning out a game every year Ubisoft. I mean, Madden does it, right? -__-
  • @1 They are releasing it this year to coincide with the 2012 end of the world prophecy that's central to the story, your right though a bigger gap would've been preferable. if Revelations and brotherhood hadn't come out it would of been perfect, but it rakes in the cash so they will keep em coming personally I can't wait, revelations had an amazing ending....
  • @1 No, they shouldn't. If you follow the Creed storyline, it takes place in 2012 and is related to the 2012 rumored date of the 'apocalypse.' Hence, finishing it now, in the year it's supposed to be taking place, is a fairly nice touch. Maybe they should have held off on Revelations though... that game was disappointing, I'll admit.
  • 3 years theyve been working on it? Bull shit i think what they mean to say is "This is what we should have done, BUT we were to busy jacking off to Ezio we had to give the motherfucker 3 games" this series went from being one of the best to the call of duty of action adventure games
  • @5 and @7 Aside from yearly release, it isnt like CoD. With AC2, it was a complete overhaul of the first game, it felt completely different and it was good. With ACB they added a multiplayer component. and with ACR...idk. I guess thats their only faulty game. Point is that atleast AC is adding things that mean something to their game where as CoD is the exact same thing every year.
  • @1, the games main premise is around something happening in december of this year, why should they wait a few years to release AC-III? It makes no sense.
  • @ 1, 5, & 7... Why come here and comment? You obviously haven't played AC. If you had, you would know this series has had a tie in with 2012 all along. Why in the hell would they release the game that concludes the story after the year that they have emphazised so much? Idiots. OT: Can't wait. I'm gonna miss Ezio in the series though.
  • dammit! 3 assassin's creed games since the release of splinter cell conviction! and still no news about splinter cell 6, doest it take so much time ot make a new SC?
  • At #18 it is when all they care about is making ezio title after ezio title
  • Oh man, oh man, oh man! *girlish squeak* hahahahahha
  • @5 and 7 Yea, except Assassin's Creed makes meaningful updates between its titles. Annualizing a franchise, in itself, isn't a bad thing if you deliver great games that change up the experience and make meaningful improvements.
  • @17 Take a look at my played games and say that again! I actually have no problem with the games, but I'd put money on them putting another game out next year, and the next year, and the next year, and the next year.. and so on.
  • @17 You're wrong. I have played Assassin's Creed. My comment was directed at the yearly releases.
  • Good. It's time for a new assassin.
  • Can we not have multiplayer this time please?
  • Well they kind of have to. Considering that the "event" is to take place on the 21st December 2012. Which is when Absertgo launch their new satellite. Plus, as it has been in development for 3 years, it may have a new engine. Who knows?
  • Den assassins like BH please, Rev. was ugly.
  • its not like call of duty on development they have just done the last 2 as teasers really as AC3 has been in development for three years which is actually longer than the first AC was in development roll on release date for by far the best story in a very long time!!!
  • The fact that they've been developing it for three years pleases me. I know a while back they said that each numbered game would be the big steps forward, but with annual releases it creates the question of how much they can change. But three years, pleanty of time. And to top it off it's coming out three weeks before Resident Evil 6! I was expecting them to stick to the mid Novemeber releases the other four have had. Awesome.
  • For all the people defending this shit and neg repping the people who see that they're just milking it, get a fucking life. ANOTHER AC game, great.... -______- I didn't get Revelations and I'm not getting this or any further AC games until Ubisoft stop whoring out this franchise. Nobody with a basic understanding of literacy and how "businesses" bleed consumers will condone this, it's only the teen dumbshit fanboys who think this is a good idea. Grow a brain cell, this isn't going to be a high-quality game.
  • @25 I'm all for the "no multiplayer achievements" argument for pretty much all games (this one included) but why would you want them to take a perfectly solid part of the game away entirely? I'll admit the series is mainly about the single player but I know a good few people who've got some enjoyment out of the brotherhood/revelations multiplayer so I'd be perfectly happy to give an updated version of it a try in AC3.
  • "whoring out" ... YOU'RE RIGHT! Stop making games! Don't devs know that people don't like playing games anymore! Especially a game that I greatly enjoyed I'd hate to play more of it!!!!! And because they made it, it's existence inconveniences me and I have to suffer through playing it!
  • @22- Well, in that case you're a wanna-be hipster. Who plays all of the Assassin Creed games, contributing to their yearly release, then complains & compares it to CoD because that's the "hip" thing to do? A wanna-be. Go listen to your dubstep while reading your mustache aficionado magazine with your non-prescription over-sized glasses & leave the comments to people who care about the game. Thanks.
  • I've can't wait for assassins creed III to come out. I need to know what happens next. I hope there is more gameplay as Desmond. I just wish that the my multiplayer ranking would carry over to the next game.
  • I really wish they would have held out a bit longer, I still need to play 2, brotherhood, and revelations >.
  • final we get to see the number 3. as much as i loved the AC games, they have to come to an epic end before all the creativity is drowned by greed and we know to what this leads.
  • @30 GTFO
  • Yeah, 3 years in development, yes.... so true.... and so have AC:B and AC:R, or not? They are milking it, and nothing good comes from that. If you say it's a good thing beacuse of the 2012 blah blah you're just giving them a reason to say something about 2013 in AC3 and release an AC4 and so on.... I just hope its good, because I've enjoyed them until Revelations.... but I also enjoyed MW and after that they were all shit.
  • @30 and everyone complaining about the franchise being milked. Learn to read carefully, this game has been in development for 3 years. That means it has been in development since 2009. That is longer that the first one and the second. If they had rushed development right after ACR was finished then you would have reason to complain. I'm a different team is working on AC3 and now that ACR is out of the way. That team can join in on AC3's development.
  • @17 While I agree that it's logical that this game comes out this year because of the story, you still can't deny the link with cod.. A new game every year, really? The games aren't that long to begin with so they could've easiy bundled at least Brotherhood and Revelations into 1 game or something.. It certainly seems like they're milking this game for everyting it's worth
  • The article on trueachievements mentioned a new protagonist will be introduced. As I was under the impression Desmond was a protagonist, albeit not to the extent Ezio was in the last 3 games, I'm thinking they'll add another assassin in the past. Dear lord if that's the case this series will never end. Just finish off Desmond's story and then start a fresh series with someone completely different.
  • Getting fed up with people complaining how quickly they release the next assassins creed, I for one and very happy with how often they are coming out. Each one has improved from the last and i'd rather not have to wait 3 years for a great game. Keep up the good work ubi, you have my full support and this will definitely be a day one purchase for me as it always has been with each assassins creed.
  • @30 'Grow a brain cell, this isn't going to be a high-quality game.' No, please, you grow a brain cell. The rest of us are civilized enough to not be forced to swear and use vulgar language to get our point across. You sound like someone gave an 11 year old with tourettes a book of 'bad words', and let them loose on the internet.
  • lets be honest with ourselves black ops 2 will grind this in the ground sales wise.... with all the new innovations Activion promised us this year.
  • Well I for one am glad, love the series and more is great news, just cut out the MP please Uni.
  • I for one would appreciate a new ip or at least maybe not having an AC game shoved down my throat every year...
  • Can't wait! Anytime Walker -Sean
  • @#30 I hope you realize the irony of your comment when you're in line to buy the game in 6 months.
  • @40 Yeah a COD game has been released every year since COD 4. But only 3 COD games are actually linked together via a storyline. Black Ops and WAW have nothing to do with COD4, MW2 and MW3. All Assassin's Creed games tie into one another. Also read the article carefully, AC3 has been in development for 3 years, meaning since 2009 they have been working on it. Since MW2 came out,Black Ops and MW3 have been developed and released, AC3 has been in development. While it's spinoffs has been developed and released it has been in Development, taking whatever new features and such the developers are adding as well as the features that were introduced in Brotherhood and ACR. Ubisoft's plan is to end the trilogy in 2012 to go along with their storyline.
  • @46 If you feel like the AC franchise is being shoved down your throat then don't buy them. That way your throat is safe.
  • any kind of Assassins Creed is amazing news to me. I just hope they dont put ANY multi-player in it. and just focus mainly on Singleplayer. and only come out with Singleplayer DLC. but i HIGHLY doubt that will actually happen.
  • Been in development for three years? Maybe that's why Revelations was created by so many different Ubisoft branches and with any luck the A-Team of Ubisoft were working on AC3 the entire time. Bring it on!
  • Whoa, October? Jeez, Ubi, don't throw me off with your early releases! I like my Creed right were it always is: November. :P Either way, super stoked about this. One of my favorite still-running IPs, and even though Revelations was a bit of a let-down, it was still miles ahead of so much else on the market. They better make sure this one's less buggy and more innovative than AC 2.5 and 2.75!
  • i still havent bought revelations yet. i wont pay over $20 for their yearly CoD clones anymore
  • @ 1 - Read the article - It's been in development for 3 years. That means that Brotherhood and Revelations were pretty much their trial runs for the final installment in the numbered series. As long as it's obviously not an immediate annual release like BEFORE 1 year, I have no problem with Sooner the Better since you constantly read people whining and crying for a games release they want ASAP.
  • Well since Ezio is done, I wonder who this game is going to focus on. Desmond, or Altair. Could be a new person.
  • @49 No shit they aren't linked because Modern Warfare titles are created and developed by a different company then the others. Infinity Ward and Treyarch are two completely different companies. Just as Ubisoft has several divisions of the company, or branches. If AC3 has been in the development for 3 years, I would assume the main team started on it right away after AC2, and that's why Brotherhood & Revelations weren't as 'big' and created by the many different branches of Ubisoft. I say it'll be good.
  • @18 I completely agree man! Splinter Cell is such a great game and Conviction was alotta fun but I too haven't heard any news for a new one, not sure whether it's in the works or if it's because Conviction ended off with Sam Fisher like done with agency and getting his daughter back. We all have to remember that Ubisoft is currently working on Rainbow 6 Patriots. Give these guys more credit guys...They take a heavy load under their belt and although some titles (Revelations) may not be the best, they bang out awesome games each year. They're a huge company and to work on like 5 different games at once each year is fucking crazy, in a good way!
  • I find it amusing that I knew what the majority of the comments would be before I even clicked on the story. "OMG, I'm a wannabe elitist who thinks that putting out a yearly game is automatically a bad thing and that every publisher who does it is copying evil Activision's plan with Call of Duty even though it's been done since long before the first CoD came out and now I'm going to whine about milking even though I have no real clue how businesses work but I've been brainwashed to think that businesses are bad yet I'll probably buy the very game I'm crying about in this giant run-on sentence, OMG!" I like the Assassin's Creed series. I will have the money to purchase this game. No one will force me to buy it, and I will probably enjoy the game as much as I have enjoyed the four entries that have come before it. It's really that simple.
  • @49 Even though the story ties together in the AC games, that doesn't mean they aren't milking it. Like I said, the games aren't that long for story "heavy" games, they could've developed brotherhood and revelations into 1 game ending ezio's story for example. And the game being in development for 3 years may just as well mean they had 3 people working out the story and whatnot. In this day publishers are willing to say anything to make a sale/justify milking a franchise. Look at the promises with each new cod, or look at the lies Peter Molyneux makes everytime a new fable is scheduled for release..
  • Sorry to post multiple comments fellas, but @18, check Ubisoft's site and Wikipedia, it says Splinter Cell: Retribution is being worked on for 2012!
  • I've never played the assassin creed series but I'd like to get into it so anyone know which game I should start and follow through to understand the story?
  • If AC3 has been under development for 3 years, does that mean the AC Brotherhood and AC Revelations were knowingly rushed out by Ubisoft? Good going there guys.
  • @4 I hope there is Multiplayer. They have REALLY mastered that part of the game!
  • @everyone These have all been good games so far. Very fun. Sorry for all you who think they should slow down. I guess some people really can get to much of a good thing.
  • wow! OMG! i, like others, heard of Assassin Creed III before/after release of Revelations. 3 years, 3 years, making Assassin Creed III, whew. remember what Ubisoft did in 3 years while making Assassin Creed, 1 being Revelations in the 3 years @4: sighs, hope, but likely single/multiplayer, would be surprised co-op now. okay is this Street Dated 10/30/12, if so, pre-order. now i add this game with my Assassin Creed Series, including The Da Vinci Disappearance.
  • @62- Start with the 1st game. I thought it was a bit repetitive. But, it's important to the story.
  • @30 "For all the people defending this shit and neg repping the people who see that they're just milking it, get a fucking life." "Nobody with a basic understanding of literacy and how "businesses" bleed consumers will condone this, it's only the teen dumbshit fanboys who think this is a good idea." You know the first sign someone needs a life? When that person tells others to get a life and makes a comment like that. How can you say this won't be a quality game? Please don't pretend to act like you know more than everyone else because you don't. You have no idea about the developement process of this game, or anything about it for that matter. If you don't like what Ubisoft is doing, don't play the game or even pay attention to it, no one is forcing you too but yourself. Why is that? Why even bother with something like this if you have no interest in it? Also, why do you put other people down who are ok with this? Sounds like you might need to take your own advice and get a life.
  • case and point to how it has not been in development for 3 years. Look at the story specifically the apple Assassins creed 1: the templars destroyed altairs apple years beforehand (lucy says that) Number 2: Altair hid it in cyprus and ezio took it from rodrigo(also mentioned in codex) Brotherhood: Ezio put it in the vatican vault and desmond took it Revaltations: Altair never brought it to cyprus and held onto it and died with it at masyaf????? So your telling me that ubisoft has been making this for three years when they cant even maintain a single plot thread accurately? no they cant ill buy it but i dont believe a word they say theve proven already they are interested in milking this franchise it just seems most cant admit it
  • So they've been developing it since Assassin's Creed 2 was released? At least that explains why AC: Brotherhood and Revelations could have been better :/ Love AC and Ezio/Altair but it really felt like a chore when I heard Revelations was announced, ANOTHER game for Ezio? Meh. Cannot wait for AC3 with new characters :)
  • I seriously cannot wait for this.
  • Definately not buying this, they're the same game everytime now pretty much. I can only play it for about an hour at the most.
  • If it's been in development for three years, it SHOULD be released this year... it's not milking the series. This is a full blown title, not a spin off like Brotherhood or Revelations. Can't wait.
  • Ubisoft need to stop releasing them quickly. Assassins creed is an amazing single player experience but the multiplayer needs alot of work.
  • @69 You do know that there is multiple 'pieces of eden' (apples haha), right?
  • Fix the book achievement glitch before march 9th and i'll but the next one.
  • @ #69: There are flaws in your post that go beyond your butchering of the English language. I'll try to explain why you have it all wrong. Spoilers follow! The apple in AC1 and at the end of AC:R is really one of twenty-eight Pieces of Eden. It's what is called the Second Apple, and it's lost in the DIA satellite incident in modern times. Because they lose the Second Apple, Abstergo captures Desmond and throws him into the Animus in order to find other Pieces of Eden. This sets the stage for AC1. The apple in AC2 and AC:B is called Ezio's Apple. It's the one that the Templars brought back from Cyprus. It's the one that Ezio took from Rodrigo, it's the one featured in The Bonfire of the Vanities DLC, and it's the one that Ezio eventually hid in the vault beneath Santa Maria in Aracoeli. It's the one the Desmond recovers at the end of Revelations. End spoilers! Thanks go to the AC Wiki for some minor details. It seems that Ubisoft isn't the one having trouble following a single plot thread. Consider yourself educated.
  • Er, I made a mistake in post #77. "It's the one that Desmond recovers at the end of Revelations" should read "It's the one that Desmond recovers at the end of Brotherhood."
  • @75 and 77.1 yes im aware dont try to act all smart i knew there were 28 peices of eden, some even on landmasses that dont exist anymore according to viddic, and thats why they didnt kill desmond outright (o wait i forgot im retarded and cant spell). Second the codex in Assassins creed 2, you know, the last good one, altair says (in the codex) he put the apple in cyprus and thats the one rodrigo received. So wait I knew that without having to go to the wiki that is aware of these plothole and has admins that compensate for ubisofts mistakes and make mention in the notes column. Seriously you think that they actually knew where the story was going in this, they had noooooo clue. Educated, please im not the one blindly believing what ubisoft says, i can think for myself.
  • I'm with #18, I want a new splinter cell. But I'm still gonna buy this because I love Assassin's Creed and it is not gonna turn into CoD
  • I just hope it doesn't have that dumb fucking tower defense bullshit. Other than that, I'm rather looking forward to this game.
  • its too early they release AC3... Come on guy use a couple of years on the game...
  • As much as I love the AC games, I really hope that this is the last game or they're at least starting to wrap the franchise up. Better to burn out than fade away
  • @84 Except...both of them sort of have the "don't kill anyone" code and though it may happen from time to time when its out of their hands...;>_> mostly they're trying their best not to kill the baddies. Well...I'm excited! At least if the end of the world does happen, I can finish off this series with the third installment. Provided of course...they don't release something in 2013 that's an extension of the character in ACIII then make a sequel to that in the same light as Revelations. BTW, Brotherhood and Revelations are Interquels, though they're released like Sequels (since they both came out before the actual numbered title, ACIII). Basically they're just sequels that are usually released in-between numbered entries in a series, look at the Kingdom Hearts franchise - a BUTTLOAD of interquels there. So if they do something like Brotherhood and Revelations after ACIII, we'll have some more sequels (that end up being Interquels leading into a possible ACIV). This is all assuming Ubisoft isn't done with the series yet...and according to their CEOs, it's been profitable. Like asking the makers of Call of Duty to "stop making sequels", with MW3's financial success in sales they're not going anywhere soon. /rant over.
  • #30 they whore out COD, not AC
  • All very well them developing for three years, but what can they add that's new after they felt the cash-in titles had to resort to tower defence and first-person sections in order to add something new?
  • Can't wait! problem is Ezio isn't the assassin this time around...
  • Anybody remember reading the rumor like two years ago about the "next" Assassin's Creed starring a female character during WW1? Wonder if that rumor had any truth to it and was tied to this game. I mean, this game was a year into development two years ago. ;)
  • Another already...? sadly i still have to play brother hood and revelations >:(
  • Meh. I'll just wait for AC:3 Brotherhood of Revelations in October 2013. THAT'S where shit will finally get interesting. I hear there's an additional 3rd hidden blade being added >_>
  • @5 At least Assassins Creed has a better single player AND a better multiplayer.
  • THE NEW CALL OF DUTY ?? 2007 AC 1 2009 AC II 2010 AC BRO 2011 REVELATIONS 2012 AC III 2013 AC BLACK OPS ???? JUST KIDDING AND STILL I DONT FINISH THE SECOND ONE !!!
  • Nice! I can't wait. Wonder what time period this will take place in? And please no more first person wanna-be Portal crap!
  • My first thought was that the game was "too soon" but there are two VERY GOOD points as to why this is just not a valid point of view. 1.) The story is set to expire in 2012. It is currently 2012. We have to see how it ends this year in order to have the "full effect". 2.) I am VERY RELIEVED to hear that they have been making the game for 3 years. Don't overlook how important this is. That means that once they finished ACII, they had one team start ACIII while the other team(s) used the existing template to give us ACII:Brotherhood and ACII:Revelations. This explains why the improvements from the first game in the ACII trilogy to the third are not very significant... AND...more importantly - gives us reason to expect a big jump forward in the game play in the new game.
  • ANYONE who is truly ignorant enough to believe the AC series is being milked, PLEASE contact me via Xbox Live. The series is NOT being milked. If you fail to recognize the changes the series has undergone (AC2 being a completely revamped game, ACB adding a whole new multiplayer component) then you shouldnt be saying anything. Just because its a yearly release doesnt mean its milked. AC3 has been in development for three years whereas ACB and ACR have had smaller development times and were meant as experimental titles to expand on certain concepts of the game as well as the continuation of Ezio's story. Games like CoD and FIFA however ARE milked and are GARBAGE. The only changes they undergo are guns and stats, respectively. Thats it. THINK before you say a game is milked because after AC3 is done, Im sure its going to be atleast a year before we even hear anything about a continuation of the series. Ubi is simply just finishing the AC story onhand now.
  • i am just happy they make a new game quick enough for when i beat my current line up right now. it be just in time for a new game line up.
  • Dudes... Everyone keeps forgetting Brotherhood was all but an addon for 2.. and so is Revelations... They just decided to make complete retail discs/$60 games out of them... Which you may say, see, I told you so.. dlc for $60, 2 years in a row... But both games add alot of worldspace... worldspace takes the most time to create in developing... make too much, and presto, you have a new game... and a $60 to cover the cost of developing it...
  • awesome to bad havent started playing revelations yet
  • @96 Yeah okay, Luis! I'm gonna contact you over Xbox Live to talk about your opinions on Assassin's Creed. Thanks for the 535 AM laugh lol
  • All the comparisons to this and CoD are hilarious. Hopefully I'll get this one shortly after release. I haven't been able to keep up with the series. I've only played a little bit of the first one and Brotherhood but hoping to play them all sometime. It's good they're ending the trilogy and maybe start a new story if they ever come out with anymore.
  • @18 When AC sells more and more each year, and SC doesn't sell as much, it doesn't make sense to rush out a new SC. Granted, i'd love another in the style of Conviction, but i can make do with Hitman Absolution i suppose
  • It'd probably be out by now if they didnt waste a large amount of time,resources and manpower reskinning AC2 twice over to provide filler so people dont forget about AC.I know more people that got turned off of AC because of brotherhood/revelations alone than anything.
  • 30th Oct release, that gives us approx 7 weeks to play the game, and any others that are released around this time before the world ends........
  • @33 Not quite sure where my music taste, my apparent glasses (I don't wear glasses..) or my uhh.. mustache magazine come into any of this, and I'm not sure when it became hip to state opinions, but there you go. At the end of the day, regardless of my music taste/glasses/magazine-reading-habits, Ubisoft are milking the life out of Assassins Creed, and being called a hipster isn't going to change my opinion on that so go nuts fanboy!
  • @100 ....why are you online at 5:35 AM? Catch some Z's, tubby ;)
  • Simple point even the fanboys should understand. How many teams at Ubisoft do you think have been working on the AC games and franchise? "In development for 3 years" is such a loose and blanket statement, and yet you all accept it as an acceptable excuse for pushing out another AC game year on year. It is most likely that following the success of AC2 in Q4 2009 that they said : "Hey, this franchise has really taken off now. We'll definitely need to start work on a sequel." "Well, uh, the story hasn't really been thought through though. We have to bear in mind continuity, so what do we do?" "I have an idea. Let's 'expand' on Ezio's story and rework that back into the main story arc. We can make it into a standalone title and try to add some multiplayer to flesh it out." "OK, man. Sounds good. It should give us more time to figure this shit out." Then, after ACB's success in 2010 they asked the question about AC3 again, but they still couldn't make it. It's still convoluted like Metal Gear Solid and they're still figuring it out, so they dumped out another AC title (ACR) to milk the fans and to give them more creative development time. If "figuring out the story" and concept design is classified as fully-fledged "in development", then yes, they're telling the truth, but it looks all too much like a case of "Oh shit, we need to think of something fast." to me, and mark my words, despite the fanboys gobbling up every drop of crusty AC drivel that Ubi spew out, this won't be the game the rest of us want it to be. Disappointment is nigh.
  • @1 If you accualy decided to read the full story, you would see that they've been working on this for 3 years. I would agree with you if they just started this year, but 3 years is long enough.
  • @ 98 - No it wasn't. Or else it would've BEEN an "Add-on". The Add-On for AC2 were the missing memories. These were just "filler games" to dole out Ezio and Altairs revelations through to Desmond. It's called a Plot.
  • @107 What games have you been playing? If you have played all four games and understand them you would realize that they know where their going with the story and have clearly had it all planned out from the start. The reason they are coming out yearly is because Ubisoft can mange to create an incredible game and deliver it to us on a yearly basis. Their not rushing out games for the sake of it, or for the sole purpose of money. Also if you understand the games you will know that they have been leading to the events in 2012 with the supposed end of the world. So with that in mind it would only make sense that they get the games out before the end of the year so it can relate to the story.
  • I actually loved Revelations and thought it was a big step towards what game should be a la Uncharted. It was becoming stale ever since AC2 came out, but if AC3 can top Revelations then count me in=)
  • More AC yes plz
  • I like the Assassin creed!
  • Yes I can't wait to see what happens to Desmond. I wonder if they will use the animus much in this one.
  • @7 Me too lol. Minimal changes to the formula or game engine and bleed one out every year.
  • I guess it's time for me to get II then.
  • They are releasing these games far to often, i've still not played Brotherhood yet for crying out loud, let alone Revelations and I love the AC franchise
  • They all worth buying but I mainly play for the single player but dont get me wrong i love the MP in brotherhood but revelations not so much lets just hope they make this abit like skyrim so you have like 120 hours of gameplay and no MP :)
