Assassin’s Creed III preorder numbers surpass preorders for previous games

Looks like someone is onto a winning formula at Ubisoft, with the company announcing that preorders for their upcoming Assassin’s Creed 3 are set to surpass preorders for any other game released by the company. And that’s a pretty big deal for Ubisoft, and for the Assassin’s Creed series as a whole.

According to the company, Assassin’s Creed 3 has already surpassed preorder numbers for Brotherhood, and has more than 10 times the pre-orders that Revelations notched up in the same 3 week period (comparing US pre-orders, for those of you playing at home). Not too mean a feat for the series.

In other Assassin’s Creed news, it looks like Ubisoft is very keen to have PC players try the game using a controller rather than keyboard and mouse setup. According to the creative director of the game, Alex Hutchinson, speaking to GameSpy, PC players looking to gain the most out of the Assassin’s Creed 3 experience should be hopping on that controller bandwagon:

“We’re definitely supporting PC. We love PC, but I think it’ll be PC with a controller. I don’t see us investing hugely in a mouse and keyboard setup. I think if you want to play on PC and you want to play Assassin’s Creed, you have a controller.”

I guess that means we won’t be seeing Assassin’s Creed 3 themed keyboard and mouse combinations.
