Ubisoft has confirmed that the much-awaited Assassin’s Creed, first revealed in a lecture during GDC 2006, will debut this November for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC - while leaving reports of a DS version unaddressed. The title, which is being developed at Ubisoft Montreal, and was originally described at Game Developers Conference 2006 as being "set on redefining the action genre for next-generation consoles", has already seen 1.3 million downloads of its latest trailer on GameTrailers.com in less than a week. The game is set in 1191 AD, during the Third Crusade, and focuses on Assassins which intend to stop the hostilities by suppressing both sides of the conflict. Particularly showcased in various private trade show demos to date have been the complex crowd dynamics, with the main character, Altair, thrusting himself realistically through crowded streets. Ubisoft's press release announcing the game's debut repeatedly references Assassin's Creed as a 'franchise', but does not address recent reports, sourced from a GameStop product listing, suggesting that a version of the title may be coming to the Nintendo DS later in 2007. “Assassin’s Creed is going to be a huge launch for Ubisoft this year along with the added prestige of being the start of this exciting new franchise that is bringing something completely new to the market,” said Tony Key, vice president of marketing, Ubisoft. “We’re confident that Assassin’s Creed will exceed expectations as a ‘must-have’ title this holiday season and will achieve both critical and commercial success.”
