Ubisoft remain tight lipped over Assassin’s Creed PS3 exclusiveness

Assassin's Creed

As rumours fly that forthcoming action adventure title Assassin’s Creed won’t be a PS3 exclusive after all, Ubisoft is remaining interestingly non-committal on the subject.

Speaking this morning, a representative said: “At the moment, other formats of Assassin’s Creed are unconfirmed.” Which suggests they’re at least considering an Xbox 360 release – despite stating that the game would only only be out on PS3 when it was first announced.

Assassin’s Creed is set in 1191 AD, during the Third Crusade, and sees players take on the role of hero Altair. It’s being developed by Ubisoft Montreal, the same studio who brought us the Prince of Persia and Splinter Cell games.

It looked fantastic at E3 last week – rather intriguingly, gamers were given an Xbox 360 controller with which to try it out, which has added fuel to the rumours that it won’t be a PS3 exclusive. Although it might just as easily have meant it was being demoed on a PC. OH IT’S SO CONFUSING!

As has a report on, which claims that a Ubi employee has also stated the game is in development for Xbox 360.
