Assassin's Creed 2 launches November 17

Hey, what is this? Something interesting out of the Ubisoft keynote? After several days of Ubisoft press conference, the company hit us with some Assassin's Creed 2 news and footage.

In addition to the crazy announcement that Assassin's Creed 2's Ezio has beaten pretty much the whole world to the invention of the gun, Ubisoft announced that the game will be out on November 17. ...Seriously, if you've got advanced weaponry like that in the 1400's, you could probably make a very tidy living as an inventor. Why all the running around and killing people?
