Assassin’s Creed IIIis on track to become the most pre-ordered Ubisoft game in the publisher’s history.
The upcoming title has only been available to pre-order for three weeks in the US, but pre-orders for the title are ten times greater than they were for Assassin’s Creed Revelations, the last release in the series, in the same timeframe.
Tony Key, Ubisoft’s senior VP of Sales and Marketing, said: “On the 30th October, 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.”
Tony added: “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.“
