Ubisoft Sofia’s working on a new “undisclosed AAA project” according to the resume of several of its employees.
The purported project, has been in development for at least six months at the Bulgaria based division of publishing giant Ubisoft. Best known for their development work on Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation for Sony’s PlayStation Vita, it’s more-than-possible that they’re now hard at work developing a follow up for the handheld platform.
It’d come as no surprise – certainly not after the success of Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, which last we heard was approaching a benchmark of 600,000 sales. An impressive feat for a handheld that’s underperforming, as of this time.
There’s also – not to forget – the earlier announcement that Ubisoft’s already in the process of developing the next Assassin’s Creed. Possibly meaning Ubisoft Sofia’s developing another title to coincide with it’s the franchises next console-based release, in a similar vein as to last year’s Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation – which both released in October 2012.
The fact that development appears to have started on the unannounced project a mere month or two ahead of the release of Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation also indicates it as being more than a possibility.
Ubisoft is set to hold an event on February 27 in London, whereby it is widely expected that they will announce the next Assassin’s Creed. Perhaps we’ll be treated to two new releases.
