Assassin's Creed 2: Confirmed

January 22, 2009

Assassin’s Creed 2, the long-awaited sequel to the parkour/templar ninja progenitor of the series, is going to be coming to consoles by (at the latest) March of 2010.  The first Assassin’s Creed was a massive hit, but suffered somewhat from lulls in action necessitated by cross-level horse rides. 

Horse riding is kinda fun, but not as fun as stabbing strangers and jumping off buildings (duh).  Hopefully we’ll get more of that in the sequel.

This is excellent news to anybody who finished the first Assassin's Creed and encountered that gigantic wall of glowing, ball-tinglingly interesting wall of cryptic messages.  One of those with tingly balls, if you haven’t guessed, is me.
