Ubisoft sued as author wants to block sale of Assassin’s Creed III

Posted on April 18, 2012 - 2:00pm by Sean Hinz

Author of hit novel Link (never heard of it…) John Beiswenger is suing Ubisoft on the grounds that the entire Assassin’s Creed fiction was his idea. Link explores the same ideas of diving through ancestral memories, futurist’s technology, and even sub plots of religion and God that Assassin’s Creed also dances around. Now since this allegation against Ubisoft mentions it is a “direct copy”, he might be shit out of luck.

Reading through the brief summary, the story only appears vaguely familiar, missing all the fun and stabbing that goes on in the Assassin’s Creed series. In total Mr. Beiswenger is hoping to get at least $1 million if not $5.2 million in damages and he would like everything Assassin’s Creed III related to stop.

He had better hope that Ubisoft doesn’t have to comply with that last part, because I can't be held accountable for what would happen to him. I need my AssCreed fix dammit! Strangely Gametrailers has been roped into this as well for hosting the following trailer. I am going to just make sure we don’t have that one up on the site… brb.
