We said it would certainly happen…
They claimed it wouldn’t…
Ubisoft are clearly not short of a buck or two, what with them multiplying the not-inconsiderate original Assassin’s Creed team by a factor of 3 – that’s 450 people!
Maybe they’re taking Rocksteady Studio’s concept a step further and assigning guys to work on not just Ezio’s cape but his hood, demeanour and fancy trousers too?

Following a smart teaser that snuck onto the net earlier in the week (read more to see it), more information about Assassin’s Creed 2 has surfaced following the big reveal in the new issue of Game Informer.
In a nutshell, the sequel moves from the 12th century Crusades to 15th century Italy and follows the trials and tribulations of one Ezio Auditore de Firenze (another of Desmond’s genetic relatives) as he more than likely assassinates his way across Florence whilst evading capture by sitting on a bench.
