Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection Brings the Best Assassin to PS4 and Xbox One

Ezio Auditore da Firenze takes back the spotlight in this remaster collection.

Ubisoft has announced Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, bringing some of the series' best games to new platforms. As the name suggests, The Ezio Collection brings Assassin's Creed II, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, and all single-player DLC together in one package.

This is a single-player-only romp across Ezio's history, so none of the multiplayer content will be making the transition. The Collection also includes the short films Assassin's Creed Embers and Assassin's Creed Lineage, which both act as an epilogue to Ezio's tale. Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection will be available on November 15, 2016.

Ubisoft also announced that Assassin's Creed as a franchise has sold more than 100 million copies worldwide.

"This is a huge milestone for the Assassin's Creed franchise, but we believe the best is yet to come," said Assassin's Creed brand director Etienne Allonier. "Having seen what's gone into this year's movie and into future Assassin's Creed games, we think fans and newcomers alike will be excited by everything Assassin's Creed has to offer."

"Creating an Assassin's Creed game is no easy task. It takes the creativity and hard work of many people in many different Ubisoft studios all over the world," added AC senior producer Martin Schelling. "To have this franchise join the ranks of those that have reached more than 100m sold is a testament to the teams that have taken on that challenge over the years."

Ubisoft pushed the latest Assassin's Creed back from this year to 2017. The publisher is "re-examining" the franchise and decided to give the next entry a little more time in development. The next adventure is rumored to take the series to Egypt. Ubisoft also hinted that the series may no longer be annual.

M.H. Williams is new to the journalism game, but he's been a gamer since the NES first graced American shores. Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
