Ubisoft: Preorders for Assassin’s Creed II up 80% over original

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has revealed that preorder numbers for Assassin’s Creed II are up 80 percent compared to the original, which is in stark contrast to Monday’s report from Janco analyst Mike Hikey, citing preorders for the sequel were up 10-20 percent on the original.

This bit was revealed during Ubisoft’s financial call to investors, along with the news that the company expects 15-25 percent higher total sales of the sequel.

Guillemot also said that Ubisoft and Sony signed a television marketing deal this year, which means that TV spots featuring the game will be PS3centric only.

Take that other formats, we reckon.
