Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said:
:Assassin's Creed 2 could be one of 2009's biggest titles", indicating that the company intends to launch the game by the end of the calendar year.
The original Assassin's Creed, released in 2007, "greatly outstripped" Ubisoft's sales expectations, selling 2.5 million units worldwide in just one month.
Guillemot also announced a new Ghost Recon title, opting not to mention a finalized name for the game.

Ubisoft's fiscal 2009-2010 will see the introduction of seven new franchise titles including Assassin's Creed 2, Splinter Cell: Conviction, a new Ghost Recon, Anno and the "unofficially" announced Red Steel 2.

Three new brands will launch as well, including I Am Alive
, which was pushed back from the current fiscal year.
