Ubisoft officially revealed Assassins Creed 3 today, thus confirming the wide speculation that the new installment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise is already in development. It gets even better to, as they’ve already released their target date: October 30th of this year.
“We will push the title a lot because it’s a fantastic product that the team has been working for three years,” said Ubisoft Chief Executive Officer Yves Guillemot. “What we have seen is just fabulous.”
Ubisoft also revealed that it is seeing solid sales for Assassin’s Creed Revelations, coming in at close to 7 million sell-in units, which slightly exceeded forecasts.
Yves Guillemot further stated “Our unique positioning as a creator of brands for both core and casual gamers enabled us to capture new market share in the console games segment in 2011 while significantly growing our online business. In fiscal 2012-13, we will start to capitalize on the large-scale investments we have undertaken more than three years ago, with the ramp-up of our offering for core gamers and notably a strong comeback into the major segment of shooter games. We also expect to see sustained growth in our online and digital revenue during the year. In the longer term we have solid opportunities for continued growth and profitability thanks to the arrival of the new generation of consoles and our plans to extend to all our titles the benefits and economic models of online games.”
Assassin’s Creed III Release Date is October 30th, 2012.
