Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag just launched last year on both current and next-gen consoles. Additionally, two new Assassin’s Creed titles are expected to hit stores later this year. Given the sales numbers above, it’s easy to see why they are so committed to releasing a new game in this series every year.
With E3 2014 only a little over a month away now, rumors have been swirling that Far Cry 4 and a new Prince of Persia game are expected to be revealed during Ubisoft’s press conference. Let’s also not forget that Rainbow Six Patriots is also in development and we are long overdue for an update on this too. It will be interesting to see if another new game from any of the top selling titles listed above is also revealed at the show. In any event, we won’t have to wait too much longer to find out now.
