Next Assassin’s Creed Will be Announced in May

Ubisoft has struck gold with the Assassin’s Creed franchise, with each title selling millions of copies. Both Assassin’s Creed II and Brotherhood also received very high review scores, with the series gaining a loyal following. With such incredible success, Ubisoft’s plans for the future of the franchise are not that surprising.

During their financial call, Ubisoft announced that a new Assassin’s Creed will be releasing in Fiscal Year 2012, with more information set to release in May.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot announced:

We will have an Assassin’s Creed this [fiscal] year. We are going to give you more details in May

The publisher also released sales figures for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. The title shipped an impressive 6.5 million units since its launch back in November. Although Assassin’s Creed II shipped more copies, Brotherhood performed better in terms of revenue. Additionally, the company revealed that PSP spin-off Bloodlines, which released in 2009, has now sold 500,000 units.
