Like the original, Assassin’s Creed 2 will not have a demo. This report comes direct from a Ubisoft representative on the floor of the Eurogamer Expo, and while gamers may not be too happy with it, at least one analyst predicts that Ubisoft’s sequel will still outsell the overachieving original.
The original Assassin’s Creed was predicted to sell roughly 3 million copies, however to date, the title has sold over 8 million — nearly matching the publisher’s predicted sales in it’s first month alone. Janco analyst, Mike Hickey, states:
“[Assassin’s Creed 2] is part of a strong stable of owned and internally developed franchises …”
In addition to Hickey’s comment, his company, Janco Partners, shared current estimates that put the preorder numbers for Assassin’s Creed 2 at 10-20% over those of it predecessor.
Assassin’s Creed 2 will be available in stores on Tuesday, November 17th in the US.
