Is Ubisoft working on an HD collection of Assassin’s Creed games? That is the question on every gamer’s mind after new hit that the company has registered a new domain for the title. The registration was spotted by a user on NeoGAF, with the listing showing that the “AssassinsCreedCollection.com” website was now owned and operated by Ubisoft.com, though the site is currently not operational.
Of course, this could just be the usual sort of cover-your-bases website purchase, where Ubisoft doesn’t want some malware riddled website housed on a domain that could be associated with them. However, with the recent spate of HD remasters hitting the current gen consoles, it totally makes sense that Ubisoft would be working on a collection of older Assassin’s Creed games for PS4 and Xbox One.
With that said, the only real question is, when will it come out, and what games will be included. This registration hints that it could be announced some time soon, which would then hint at a late 2016 or early 2017 release. If it exists and is being actively worked on, players should expect an announcement at E3 2016 at the very latest.
As far as what games are included, Assassin’s Creed 2 and Brotherhood are near certainties, with Assassin’s Creed Revelations also a high likelihood. Those are the most highly regarded titles in the entire series, aside from perhaps ACIV, which already came out on current consoles. They also have a osrt of self-contained storyline, with Ezio being the protagonist in all three games. Whether Assassin’s Creed 1 or 3 are in the package is definitely up for debate.
We’ll just have to wait and see at this point, but it definitely looks like Ubisoft is working on something.
