Assassin’s Creed III On Track To Become The Most Pre-Ordered Game In Ubisoft History

March 29, 2012Written by Nick Michetti

Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed III is on its way to becoming the most pre-ordered title in Ubisoft history.

Assassin’s Creed III has only been available for pre-order for three weeks in North America and already has higher pre-order numbers than any previous Assassin’s Creed game in the same time period in North America. ACIII already has more than ten times the U.S. pre-order totals had by Assassin’s Creed Revelations in the same time period and has met Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood‘s “life-to-date” U.S. pre-order total. AC3 is on track to match the “life-to-date” U.S. pre-order figures of the game holding the record for Ubisoft’s most pre-ordered game, Assassin’s Creed Revelations, by this year’s E3 in June.

Tony Key, Ubisoft Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing said:

On October 30th players will experience the biggest game launch in Ubisoft’s history with the highly anticipated release of Assassins Creed III. With a development cycle of three years, Assassins Creed III is the true next-generation experience of the Assassins Creed brand. The production value of the game, combined with the biggest marketing commitment we’ve ever made, will make Assassins Creed III the highest-selling Assassin’s Creed game ever. Additionally, the new setting and hero makes this the perfect time to jump into the series for anyone that has not previously played an Assassin’s Creed game.

Assassin’s Creed III will release for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on October 30th. A Wii U version is also in development.
