Ubisoft just confirmed that Assassin's Creed II will release on November 20 in the UK.
The game was fixed for a November 17 US date at E3 last week.
Game of the Year? Unless something goes badly wrong, it looks as though it may well be one of them.
Update - Britain's getting a special edition as well, according to Play listing noticed by EG. It'll include "a 64-page leather-and-parchment-style Conspiracy development book; an Ezio figurine wearing Master Assassin garb; three in-game bonus quests promising to cover 'the most prestigious moments' of the Italian Renaissance; the soundtrack by Jesper Kyd; and behind-the-scenes developer interviews."
