[UPDATE] Ubisoft "working hard" on Assassin’s Creed 2

Speaking during a conference call with investors today, Ubisoft’s Yves Guillemot refused to divulge a possible release date for Assassin’s Creed 2, but confirmed the company is indeed “working hard on the product."

In related news, Giantbomb revealed that during the taping of Geoff Keighley’s Bonus Round with Kotaku’s Michael McWhertor and Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter, Ubisoft is planning on changing the time frame of Assassin’s Creed 2.

According to Patcher, Ubisoft said that they are moving from 1191 A.D. to “several hundred years in the future” or more specifically, “sometime in the 1700s.” It’s speculated that the sequel with have Altair running around during the French Revolution, as that’s a time period that has not been over explored by videogames, much like the Crusades era.

Either way, it’s great to know that the game is coming along. Let’s hope it’s not too long before Ubisoft reels back the curtain on this highly anticipated sequel.


According to VG247, a Ubisoft representative has replied to the rumor stating, "this is only a rumor and we would prefer not to comment on rumors."
