Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood has only been out for a little over a week and Ubisoft has already announced they are preparing a fourth installment of the series for release next year.
This announcement, reported by MCV, comes close on the heels of Brotherhood’s European release, where it sold over one million copies in less than a week. This makes it Ubisoft’s fastest-selling game in Europe and one of its biggest global franchises.
Geoffroy Sardin, Ubisoft’s marketing and sales chief for Europe, Middle East and Asia, declared Brotherhood as the best launch in the history of the company's European sales. He also chalked up the game’s success to the fact that Ubisoft “transformed the brand from a single player one to a multiplayer one.”
As pointed out by Joystiq, the announcement of a new Assassin’s Creed title directly contradicts a statement made by Ubisoft associate producer Jean-Francois Boivin in July. Boivin said he thought the series would be allowed “to breath a bit” before the next installment.
It’s a strategy that worked for Call of Duty: Black Ops this year, but what do you think of annual installments of the Assassin’s Creed series?
