Assassin’s Creed 3 Is Ubisoft’s Most-Preordered

People clearly want very badly to play Assassin’s Creed 3. How do we know? Because apparently everyone is pre-ordering it. GameStop, weirdly enough, has issued a press statement bragging on Ubisoft’s behalf about the fact that pre-orders are double what they were last year. “Pre-orders for Assassin’s Creed 3 at GameStop are 100% higher than last year, putting the game on track to be one of the top titles of 2012,” said GameStop VP of international merchandising, marketing & digital Michael van den Berg.

So yeah, the game is probably going to sell very well and reward Ubisoft for making the awesome-sounding Evil George Washington DLC. But does that mean GameStop has to do Ubisoft’s marketing job for them? In the same statement, van den Berg added “In addition, Ubisoft is offering a Season Pass and high quality DLC available at launch to bring even more excitement to this title.” Thanks for letting us know about the excitement this title will apparently have. I’m totally going to get my copy from GameStop now. Because of all the sincerity.

Not surprising. AC is Ubisoft’s biggest IP, so it will obviously set records for the company. Plus, unlike the previous installments, this one looks to make significant advances with the plot. As much as I enjoy the AC games, the last couple could have easily been put into one game and felt like there was a lot of padding done to keep this lucrative series going. The thing is, I don’t think they even need to do such padding to keep it going. Since all of history is fair game for this series, even if they finish this overarching plot, there is basically a limitless source of material for a new one that focuses on other characters besides Desmond and his ancestors.
