Assassin’s Creed U is going to be a new entry in the series

Assassin's Creed: Revelations

Yves Guillemot was recently interviewed by the Swedish site Aftonbladet. Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed project for the Wii U came up, and Guillemot confirmed that it won’t be a port of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed: Revelations for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, while declining to elaborate any further.

Aftonbladet: We saw something about a new Assassin’s Creed for Wii U. What can you say about that?

Guillemot: Our next edition of Assassin’s will be in a Wii U version.

Aftonbladet: Assassin’s Creed: Revelations?

Guillemot: No, not Revelations. For the future.

Aftonbladet: So it’s Assassin’s Creed III? Or is it something else?

Guillemot: I can’t tell you that.

It remains to be seen whether the Assassin’s Creed game for the Wii U will be an original project for the console or a port of a future 360/PS3 installment in the series. Either way, I’m already getting excited just thinking about everything the touchscreen controller could be used for in an Assassin’s Creed game.

    Excellent, a whole new Assassins creed.

    I can see them going multiple ways with this. In one corner you have the Wii and Wii U that have never had the prior titles. In the other is an exclusive side story of the franchise on Wii U only. So let me take a stab and suggest ports of the older ones in maybe a box set to introduce the franchise to those who haven’t had the opportunity to play them before… That’s the cheap route for Ubisoft. Heck if they give them a little face lift I’m sold. Then there’s the side story idea. Could go either way.

      Jesus, don’t overreact. You realize that Revelations is coming out this November right and that Assassin’s Creed 3 is coming out November 2012, right? It makes so much sense to release Assassin’s Creed 3 on the Wii U instead, why port Revelations one year after it’s release? We’ll get the same AC3 as PS3 and XBox 360, but with updated graphics and some cool utilization of the Wii U controller (look up Ubisoft E3 roundtable and you’ll see what I mean).
