Assassin’s Creed The Ezio Collection Marketing Material Surfaces Online, To Feature Reworked Textures And More – Rumor
This year will be the first in a very long time without a new Assassin’s Creed game. However, it seems like fans of the series will be able to enjoy again some of the best entries of the Ubisoft series with some enhanced features.
Earlier today, French website GameBlog shared what seems like marketing material for a yet to be announced Assassin’s Creed The Ezio Collection. According to the website, this collection, which is apparently launching this November on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, is going to include the three games starring Ezio Auditore, Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed Revelations. The three games are also getting some enhancements such as reworked textures and will supposedly run at 1080p/60FPS. Additionally, the Assassin’s Creed The Ezio Collection will also include all DLC packs released for the three games as well as two animated movies, Lineage and Embers.
While GameBlog has proven to be reliable regarding rumors in the past, we must still take everything with a grain of salt until an official confirmation comes in. Such a collection seems quite likely, so we probably won’t have to wait much longer to get an official confirmation.
As already mentioned, there won’t be a new Assassin’s Creed game this year, as the team wanted to take the time to re-examine the franchise to eventually release the best possible open world game.
This year, we also are stepping back and re-examining the Assassin’s Creed franchise. As a result, we’ve decided that there will not be a new Assassin’s Creed game in 2016. Since the release of Assassin’s Creed Unity, we’ve learned a lot based on your feedback. We’ve also updated our development processes and recommitted to making Assassin’s Creed a premier open-world franchise.
The Assassin’s Creed The Ezio Collection has yet to be officially announced, but we should hear more about it soon enough, if it’s indeed real. We will keep you updated on it as soon as more comes in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
