I posted this in another thread, but said thread was quite dated and I personally thought it may be worth a whole new shiny place on the venue here.

I spoke with a Gamestop guy a few months ago and we got on the topic of AC3 and how it would flow with the story line of existing releases. He told me (in his most whisperish, clandestine sorta way) that Ubisoft would be releasing another AC title following almost immediately the AC3 release because it all revolved around the whole world ending in 2012 premise.

As he said, it wouldn't make a lot of sense to release a game after the whole story line was supposed to end...

what do you all think?...might it be possible that Ubisoft would use the hype surrounding the AC3 release to cover the release of a follow-up that soon, or was this dude playing games?

I replied to your other post as well. No, I dont think they'll have back-to-back AC releases. Not many copies of it would sell if no one knows its coming. Plus, Ubisoft would have announced it at E3.

As far as the world-ending-in-2012 storyline, its been confirmed by Ubi that AC3 will directly address that (which is the reason that AC3 will be released before the end of 2012). That is probably what the clerk was talking about. Either he or you misunderstood that as indicating a separate release. Remember, each AC game has 2 stories - the Assassin ancestor (Altair, Ezio, Connor), and Desmond in present day (2012).

Your "Gamestop guy" must be pretty bored.

Yeah... what B. Kidwell said... u.u nice theory that adds up to some extent, but UBI hasn't really pushed any end of the world viral propaganda to premote such a thing.
