Ubi announces Assassin's Creed for PS3

Ubisoft officially announced yesterday that it would be bringing Assassin's Creed to the PS3 in 2007. The game, which is set during 1191 AD amidst the third holy crusade, is being developed by Ubi's Montreal Studio, who're responsible for the Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia franchises. Stating that the game will "captivate audiences and affect them on the same level as an epic novel or film," Yannis Mallat, Ubisoft's Montreal Studios' chief executive officer, seems confident that gamers will receive this title with open arms.

Ubisoft's chief executive officer, Serge Hascoet, commented "Our goal to introduce three new brands into the marketplace every two years is working. With Assassin’s Creed we’re introducing a franchise that will establish itself as the must-have next-generation game for the next-generation gamer.” A trailer for the game can be viewed/downloaded at the official site here.

1. Before somebody states that this will be available on other consoles too I would like to say - Nobody cares.

Personally I think the game can turn out sweet. Its a cool setting. Any word on what kind of game it is? Looks like something similar to POP wich inturn is one of my favourite series.

Since the game is beeing developed by the team responsible for POP its not unlikely.
