Ubisoft has announced today that pre-order numbers for their third proper entry in the Assassin’s Creed franchise have set the company’s all-time high.


With Assassin’s Creed 3 taking the franchise to the American Revolution, there’s no doubt that this setting change has excited a larger portion of the gaming community. In fact, the publisher went on to tout that not only is this game the “most pre-ordered in the company’s history”, its pre-order numbers are already double those of last year’s release, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.


According to GameStop president Tony Bartel:


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. In addition, Ubisoft is offering high quality DLC available at launch to bring even more excitement to this title.


As such, there’s undoubtedly a ton of hype right now for Ubisoft’s upcoming action adventure. Will it deliver the stellar experience everyone is expecting? We’ll find out soon enough, when Assassin’s Creed 3 launches this coming Tuesday.

True that. Though to be honest I don't think I'm going to lose any sleep over not getting 4 extra Naval missions and the Benedict Arnold DLC with my Xbox edition. If they decide to release those PS3 exclusives for download then I guess I can be the bigger man and forgive Ubi and Sony for such obvious favoritism lol.

WTF? Do you realize that there are a lot of people around here who are older than 13 years old and don't give a S about this xbox vs ps crap?
I think it's pretty logical when some people are fed up with the fact that they are missing out on content.

Yeah i know, it's how marketing works, but that doesn't mean that people have to agree with it.

How about none of us get the shaft for a change? I have nothing against PS3 players and I think anyone who is shelling out anywhere from 60 to 120 quid for this game deserves to get the DLC.

Great now the midnight launch line will be even bigger :(. Every year I go and feel so embarrassed waiting in line with a bunch of 16 year olds in Altair suits made out of their mother's sheets. I can't wait until the next day though.

This is the reason I ended up deciding to take the 'leap of faith' and do my first pre order ever this morning . . Each of the last 3 AC's, I had bought used or when prices came down (since I didn't stumble upon AC until Brotherhood had been out for months) & I really wanted to support this series since it's my favorite out of all other game titles.
I haven't been disappointed in any of the AC's yet so I think it's worth splurging for this year & shows my support.
I'm SO excited & nervous at the same time. I hope I like Connor as much as I did Ezio. :rolleyes:

Assassin's Creed 3 Breaks Ubisoft's Pre-order Record with 40 million Pre-Orders (http://www.forbes.com/sites/davidthier/2012/10/25/assassins-creed-3-breaks-ubisofts-record-with-40-million-pre-orders/)




ASSASSIN'S CREED® III BREAKS UBISOFT PRE-ORDER RECORD

SAN FRANCISCO - October 25, 2012 -Today, Ubisoft® announced that Assassin's Creed® III is the most pre-ordered game in the company's history. Pre-orders of Assassin's Creed III already have more than doubled those of last year's Assassin's Creed Revelations®, Ubisoft's previous pre-order record holder.

With more than 40 awards won since its announcement such as Best E3 Action Game from both Game Informer and IGN, Assassin's Creed III, will be available on October 30 on PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, November 18 for Wii U™ and November 20 on Windows® PC.

"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."

Assassin's Creed III is the next installment in the Assassin's Creed franchise, which has already sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. Players will step into the boots of a new hero, Connor. Set during the American Revolution in the late 18th century the Assassin will battle for liberty against ruthless tyranny in the most stylized and fluid combat experiences in the franchise to date.

"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," said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales & marketing, Ubisoft. "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."

They mean the AC franchise as a whole... No game would sell 40 Million on preorders.
