We are going to be flooded with new information come Monday for the next iteration of Assassin's Creed, but that doesn't mean some crafty people haven't already uncovered some details thanks to a page that was discovered on the official website. Unfortunately, Ubisoft has since rectified the problem, but we have the above screenshot testifying to its existence. The biggest news to be gleaned from the page since the Trailer wasn't working is that the release date is October 29th, and it plans to also release on next-gen consoles.
Of course, many have been speculating that most of this years "biggest" titles could be on both current and next-gen consoles, which does make upgrading to the next console definitely not seem as imminent. The real question is how long this trend continues. With rising developer costs and an already established fan base, is possible we could see cross-generational games for another couple years?
It also speaks volumes that some people aren't ready to move on. As much as developers like Ubisoft clamor for a new generation, they aren't completely jumping ship either. It has yet to be seen if consumers are ready for a new generation, but so far the developers seem unwilling to drop support in favor of a new console outside of the Wii U, where none of the new games outside of possibly Just Dance will appear on the old Wii console. Oh, we also have a piece of new art to show you as well.
