While not a big surprise, Ubisoft has announced that they are working on a new Assassin’s Creed title for the Nintendo Wii U, as opposed to a port of one the many previous titles in the franchise.
Gaming Gunion had the opportunity to speak with Brent Ashe, who is currently working on Assassin’s Creed Revelations.
“That hardware [Wii U] is interesting because, now it’s going to be in HD and wrapping that in with their control scheme – I’m curious to see where that goes.”
It’s unclear if this means the Wii U Assassin’s Creed project isn’t far enough along yet to involve the Revelations team, if the Revelations team is joining after they finish with Revelations, or if a different team will be producing the popular Ubisoft titular. All we do know is that if it’s a secret to Ashe, then it’ll probably be a secret from us for a long time. I doubt we’ll hear anything concrete about it until next year.
Either way, it’s nice to have another game confirmed for the Wii U.
Considering Ubisoft has managed to consistently release an Assassin’s Creed title every year, it is no surprise that there will be a new release in 2012, nor that Nintendo will be included this time around. Personally, I’m more interested in whether or not Ubisoft will be releasing ports of the previous titles for the Wii U.
