Ubisoft hasn’t been big on HD remakes and assembled collections of their old games this generation, having preferred to focus on new IP and sequels to existing franchises. It seems that’s about to change.
It’s been rumored for some time that a collection of Assassin’s Creed games is coming, and now Korea’s Game Rating and Administration Committee has posted ratings for the the collection, spotted by NeoGAF.
The collection is titled Assassin’s Creed Ezio Collection, suggesting it would include Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, the three console titles in the series starring the Italian member of the order of assassins.
Ubisoft hasn’t confirmed the collection, nor any information about how much work they might do to modernize the games, which first saw light on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
A collection this year would make sense. Ubisoft has had new entries in the series every year for almost a decade, and they’re taking this year off to give the next Assassin’s Creed game more time to gestate. The Assassin’s Creed film starring Michael Fassbender hits in December, and not having a new title on shelves, even an old collection, seems like it would be a missed opportunity for a company currently fighting to stay independent.
If Ubisoft confirms the collection, we’ll let you know exactly what we find out.
