The publicity for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is starting to ramp up. It’s no coincidence that we’re in the middle of E3 season, mind you, with developers and publishers pulling out their big guns to tempt dopey geeks like us with more money and sense to splash the cash into their coffers.
Ubisoft have even released the first trailer, which is very spiffy (and below), and as well as that they have revealed that the new game is in effect Assassin’s Creed 3, in that it is a full sized sequel to the Ezio Auditore story, but that numbered sequels will only be for games with a new geographical setting.
‘In terms of scope, yes it is Assassin's Creed 3, in terms of a brand we want to keep the numbers for when there is a new protagonist and a new era,’ said Ubisoft Montreal designer Patrick Plourde to CVG. ‘It's more consistent.
‘So you have Assassin's Creed in the crusades, Assassin's Creed 2 which is in the renaissance... let's say that we go onto the moon for Assassin's Creed Astronaut; that is going to be Assassin's Creed 3 - I don't want to spoil anything.’ The game is released on 16 November.
