Ubisoft just registered a domain that could point to an HD Collection for the popular Assassin's Creed franchise.
Earlier today, a NeoGAF forum user spotted that Ubisoft had registered AssassinsCreedCollection.com. The website currently isn't live, but it could reveal Ubisoft's plans for the near future.
As we get further and further away from the previous generation, we're increasingly likely to see more past-gen titles remastered and re-released for Xbox One.
Most of the Assassin's Creed franchise still resides on the Xbox 360, and bringing the series to the Xbox One in a single collection would likely prove lucrative. Naturally, Ubisoft might only be registering 'AssassinsCreedCollection.com' as a contingency against domain squatters, but given the success of other similar collections, it seems likely to me that Assassin's Creed will get similar treatment.
An Assassin's Creed Collection would likely include the following titles, most of which are unavailable on current-gen consoles:
- Assassin's Creed
- Assassin's Creed 2
- Assassin's Creed Brotherhood
- Assassin's Creed Revelations
- Assassin's Creed 3
- Assassin's Creed Rogue
For Xbox One users, the situation is a little more unique. Ubisoft has already pledged support for the Xbox Backwards Compatibility program, bringing Assassin's Creed 2 and several other Ubisoft-published titles to the console. If you're a fan of the series without access to the Xbox 360 versions, Ubisoft will likely make it more cost effective to purchase all the titles as part of a single collection.
Whether the Xbox 360 Assassin's Creed games will receive visual updates like Gears of War Ultimate Edition, a full re-master like Resident Evil 2, or simply bumps in resolution remains to be seen. One thing is for certain; this won't be the last potential HD collection making headlines.
