Upcoming historical action romp Assassin’s Creed III has become the most pre-ordered game in Ubisoft history.

The game, due out next week on October Wednesday 31st, has already doubled the pre-order levels of its predecessor Assassin’s Creed Revelations.

Assassin’s Creed III is one of the most anticipated games of the year, and this impressive pre-order mark is just a hint of the game’s potential,” Ubisoft’s marketing boss Geoffroy Sardin stated.

When players discover the new features, historical period, characters and gaming experience that the development team has worked so hard to create, we’re confident that they will agree that this is the biggest, best Assassin’s Creed game yet.”

Ubisoft adds that the game was developed over three years and enjoyed twice the production capacity of any previous title.

Total sales for the series stand at 40m units.
