Ubisoft recently dropped some exciting news regarding upcoming release Assassin’s Creed III. According to the developer, the stealth game, which lands in a mere five days, has lived up to expectations by smashing pre-order records. It managed to double last year’s Assassin’s Creed: Revelations pre-order sales, which was the previous record holder.
“Pre-orders for Assassin’s Creed III at GameStop are nearly 100% higher than last year, putting the game on track to be one of the top titles of 2012,“ said Tony Bartel, president of GameStop. “In addition, Ubisoft is offering high quality DLC available at launch to bring even more excitement to this title!
Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft also had his own to say about the new record, “Assassin’s Creed III is one of the most anticipated games of the year and this impressive pre-order mark is just a hint of the game’s potential. When players discover the new features, historical period, characters and gaming experience that the development team has worked so hard to create, we’re confident that they will agree that this is the biggest, best Assassin’s Creed game yet.“
It will be interesting to see how many pre-orders have actually been made for Assassin’s Creed III. Hopefully Ubisoft will share the figures after the game’s release on October 30th.
