    Last week, a report from Joystiq implied development of the game had stopped. Today, Ubisoft CFO Alain Martinez confirmed the news, adding that the move was done last year and had nothing to do with slow 3DS sales.

    "[The cancellation] was a decision made back in September 2010," Martinez said. "It wasn't due to anything that took place. We felt the machine already had a number of hardcore games for its release."[/p]

    So now we can drop the ball of AC being cancelled because of Sales, it's been cancelled for a long time now, I wonder why they announced it so late.

    Hardcore again. I hate it when people separate games into hardcore and non-hardcore. Games are games goddammit, what the hell happened to playing games to have fun?

    I think by "Hardcore games" they meant Nintendogs and pilot wings resort.
    Who needs Assasins Creed when you have these great games?

    @Veho - It was never in the production process, coming into 2011 it shouldn't have been announced as a 3DS title. Ubisoft kept us in dark since September, when the game was officially canned but they never revealed that until yesterday...and about the cascade of cancelled games, it's not like other consoles/hand-helds never got their games cancelled [​IMG]

    AC on 3DS to me wasn't really such a sweet idea anyway, it would be much better on a console.

    Seems like some kind of manipulation was going on to try and boost 3DS sales to me. Shenanigans are afoot to say the least.

    I will soon be using my 3ds as a paperweight [​IMG]

    If anyone really thinks the Vita won't do better than this, They are clearly delusional Nintendo fanboys.

    I've bought a lot of systems at launch and this has got to be the worst system yet for me. I have really lost my trust in Nintendo in the last few years.

    To me every system has a bumpy start at launch. The 3DS launch was awfully bumpy.

    The Vita, as long there's a franchise like Uncharted at launch, will definitely have a smoother launch. Even without that at launch, I think it'll still be quite smooth (seeing the popularity)

    Nintendo has let me down (close-to) entirely, they even judge the price of the 3DS by it's E3 popularity.

    Same thing all over again, Nintendo owners say that 3DS will become popular in time, while Vita whiners say that Vita will be the bomb.

    When 3DS was announced, the net was flooded with how Nintendo is gonna pwn Sony again.
    And when Vita was announced, the net was flooded with how Vita is 10x better than 3DS in hardware and software.

    Don't be surprised if those Vita launch titles are canned/delayed.

    Everything looks great at first glance, only when it truly is owned by the person does it reveal its greatness to the world. I say we all stop comparing both for now and wait for the damn Vita launch. Mindlessly debating over which is better at this stage is rather foolish of the Sony fanboys. I can definitely say that 50% of that huge launch title list of PS Vita will either be cancelled/delayed. Same happened with 3DS. Now Sony fanboys will quote this saying "Nintendo fanboy-ism at its finest" but do take some time and think about it.

    Do you really expect all those launch titles announced to be really released in 1 day?? I'll just wait for those pissed off Sony fans who'll make topics after Vita's release. Just like what happened with 3DS. Launch title lists are never 100% true, they're there just to create extra hype.

    That's why it's called a launch window.
    Plus they have plenty of time to get those games out.
