A new Assassin’s Creed title is under development according to Ubisoft, and is being developed by the same studio behind AC2: Ubisoft Montreal. The new title will star Ezio and will be a “follow-up” to AC2. CVG reported yesterday that Ubisoft was hard at work on a sequel, which the company is due to release before March 2011.
“We have a new Assassin’s Creed that we expect will be a very high quality product that as well as an offline component will have a multiplayer component,” Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said today. “It is the same studios because it’s not only one studio creating the game, but an association of studios and they are working together to make it happen.”
A fellow Ubisoft spokesman then added: “The game will take place with the same hero, which is Ezio, and will follow-up the story that took place in Assassin’s Creed 2.”
