UbiSoft Confirms Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood

After a Gamestop Employee/Kotaku reader leaked an image of the retailer pre-order box art, Ubi Soft confirmed the existence of the next game in the “Assassin’s Creed” series.  “Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood” continues the story of “Assassin’s Creed II” protagonist Ezio Auditore De Firenze, rather than the primary storyline.  Ubisoft revealed that such a game was being developed after rumors that a third direct sequel was already in the works, based on information in Ubisoft’s annual financial report.

According to the box art, “Brotherhood” focuses leading a group of assassins, rather than working solo.  Case in point, the box refers to a “never-before-seen” multiplayer component.  which had also been hinted in the annual financial report.  On that note, the box implies that fans who pre-order the game at Gamespot will get a special multiplayer character, if that kind of thing float your boat.

After confirming the authenticity of the box art image, Ubisoft said that they will be releasing more information some time next week.
