Italian Setting Will Help Sell Assassin's Creed II

Assassin's Creed II development boss Patrice Desilets, has said the Italian setting for the sequel will help the game sell and appeal to more gamers:
“Why? Because of Italy. Italy has something, really. I’ve met a bunch of people, and Italy has something. Italy is one of the most visited places in the world, and there’s a reason for that."

“Being able to visit Florence, or visit Venice and Tuscany, is something that people will be attracted by.”

“And it’s a sequel, and [there's been] good press on it, so I think we’re going to outsell [the original]."
Patrice also mentioned that the team isn't worried about launching so close to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 this Christmas. Assassin's Creed II is set to launch on November 20th.
