Every time an Assassin's Creed titles comes along, the hype for the game is usually impressive. The game certainly gets the recognition it deserves. Assassin's Creed III may change the meaning of "hype" for Ubisoft. Ubisoft reported that Assassin's Creed III has already gotten more preorders than Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, and the game has 10 times more preorders than Assassin's Creed: Revelations when looking at the three week span that Assassin's Creed III has been available for.
Ubisoft also has high hopes for the their new game's showing at the Electronic Entertainment Expo this Jun. They expect that the total number of preorders will exceed those of Assassin's Creed Revelations by the time Assassin's Creed III hits stores on October 30th.
