It has been an interesting week for the Assassins creed franchise, the 3DS title has officially been canned and now it has been confirmed Assassins Creed Revelations will not be on the Wii U at all. However, there will be an Assassins Creed game on the system; could this be Assassins Creed 3?
Aftonbladet.se hosted an interview with Yves Guillemot, Head of Ubisoft. Via Google translate, Yves said “Our next edition of ‘Assassin’s’ [will be] in a Wii-U version”. So, it looks like we can expect something on the Wii U, although we are still in the dark. Is it Assassins Creed 3? Is it a Wii U specific spin off, maybe adapting the 3DS game into a full Wii U title? We don’t know.
What is clear is that Yves wants this future project kept under wraps, for a little while longer at least. When questioned whether it was AC3 they were developing for Wii U; he simply replied, “I cannot say.”
For the past 3 years, Assassins creed has been an annually releasing game, a release next year would happily tie in with a supposed 2012 release for the Wii U, possibly as a launch title.
