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?
