Speaking in an investor call, following the release of Ubisoft's fiscal third-quarter financial results
, company CEO Yves Guillemot made it abundantly clear as to why another Assassin's Creed
will unsheathe its stabby things before April 2011
. According to Guillemot, Assassin's Creed 2
, which launched in November 2009 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, has shipped 8 million copies. The original Assassin's Creed
had sold just as many by June 2009
-- roughly 18 months after its debut.
Although details regarding the new Assassin's Creed
-- set to star Ezio and some online friends -- remain slim, Guillemot wasn't mum on milieu: "This time, [Ezio] will strike directly against the templar's order in Rome." Can this Rome be built in a year, just in time for Holiday 2010?
