Ubisoft announced today that AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Creed III, releasing on October 30, 2012 in North America, is on track to become the highest pre-ordered game in the companyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s history.
After only three weeks of the game being available for pre-order in North America, AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Creed III has made history for Ubisoft in North America with reserves for the title being higher than any previous AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Creed game in the same time period.Ã‚Â AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Creed III has more than 10 times the U.S. pre-order total that AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Creed Revelations had in the same time period, and the game has already reached AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Creed BrotherhoodÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s life-to-date U.S. pre-order total. AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Creed III is on track to match the life-to-date U.S. pre-order figures for UbisoftÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s previously most pre-ordered game, AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Creed Revelations, by E3 in June.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“On October 30th players will experience the biggest game launch in UbisoftÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s history with the highly anticipated release of Assassins Creed III,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Ubisoft. Ã¢â‚¬Å“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 weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve ever made, will make Assassins Creed III the highest-selling AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Creed game.Ã¢â‚¬Â
AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Creed III, the fifth installment of the acclaimed series, will be available on the Xbox 360, the PlayStation 3 , the Wii U and Windows PC. The game is being developed by the veteran AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Creed team in Ubisoft Montreal with support from other Ubisoft studios.
