Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is doing quite well, moving over a million in sales in Europe alone, despite some serious competition from Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops, which released a week prior to Brotherhood.
Speaking with MCV, not only did Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot and chief of marketing Geoffroy Sardin talk about sales and content, but they even confirmed that the next big Assassin's Creed title can be expected by next year.
"Yes, Yves [Guillemot, Ubisoft CEO] mentioned it last week in our financials "“ and more details will be forthcoming. But what I can say is that next year we will have another big Assassin's Creed game," revealed Sardin.
Considering that Brotherhood is a direct sequel to Assassin's Creed II, it's perfectly logical to speculate the next big entry into the franchise will be Assassin's Creed III.
