Assassin’s Creed Utopia - (by Ubisoft)[Universal]

We met with Ubisoft and GREE yesterday, where they revealed a partnership to create a new Assassin’s Creed game for iOS…

Details where scarce – I was met with many answers of “we can’t talk about that yet” – but what I can tell you is that the game will be called Assassin’s Creed Utopia, and that it will take place in the 16th Century (pre AC3) during the colonisation of what is now the United States of America. Obviously Abstergo Industries are interested in that time peroid and use the animus tech to find out more.

Again, details on the gameplay itself were not revealed, but like all Assassin’s games it will feature a strong narrative. What we were told is that it won’t be a card game (which many of GREE’s titles on show at E3 were). It’s being developed internally at Ubisoft and under the watchful eye of the Assassin’s Creed brand team – to ensure quality and continuity to other games in the series – so the key message from the meeting is that this will be a quality product that will appeal to AC fans.

Using the GREE platform will allow the game to connect to potentially 230 million users on the GREE network, and will harness the core APIs from the acquisition of OpenFeint for social/multiplayer features in the game.

We’ll have more on this in the coming months as Ubisoft reveal more to us.

Really??? Truly??? Sanuku, you've dug up some real treasure here. Hopefully something comes on this, I would love the real AC on iOS. Wonder how well it might control, though...and a4 would probably get nixed. Still, this is pretty exciting.

FYI I'm using the app so I can't edit my post.

I wonder if this is some sort of tie-in to AC: Liberation which was announced for the vita.

Nice! Excited to hear some more details in the near future!

Also, PvP SAAN! If you know what I just said, nice (it's related to GREE). If not, then you probably don't watch their YouTube videos so keep on moving.

I can't wait for this! Been keeping a close eye on this for a while.

I'm glad to hear it's not a card game - we've already got one of those!

As long as it plays similarly to console versions, I'm happy. Not keen on the top down versions, or the 2.5D.

If something online is free, you are not the customer - you are the product.

Felt a rush of excitement, then saw the word Gree.. ugh. Still hopeful that the game will be playable without using OF/Gree.
