GREE and Ubisoft have announced an agreement to bring a brand-new Assassin’s Creed mobile game to the upcoming GREE Platform. GREE Platform will launch in Q2 2012, and the new Assassin’s Creed title will be available in December in English and Japanese, with other languages to follow.
Since its launch in 2007, Assassin’s Creed has become one of the world’s best-selling game franchises, with the first four console games selling more than 38 million units worldwide. This year, Assassins Creed 3 will mark the biggest launch in Ubisoft’s history, thanks to more than three years’ development spent on revolutionizing the franchise’s epic, intense and immersive gameplay and storytelling. Assassin’s Creed also has transcended console gaming by branching out into other areas of entertainment, including comic books, novels, and short films. With today’s announcement, Ubisoft and GREE are committing to delivering a new and innovative social gaming experience to the franchise, available exclusively on the GREE Platform and through iOS and Android devices.
GREE Platform is a global, mobile, social gaming platform that will connect gamers with high-quality content from around the world while offering developers access to a fully “borderless” cross-platform network of high-engagement iOS and Android players. GREE will continue to focus on building relationships with third party game developers and publishers as it moves towards releasing its new platform.
