The lights are on
Update: Ubisoft has indeed confirmed the Anthology, but it says that currently it's only slated for release in Europe.
The collection comes out exclusively through Amazon's UK branch on November 30, and Joystiq talked to a Ubisoft representative who said that the Anthology was "exclusive for now." They also said that the set wasn't "currently" slated to come out here.
Given the fact that this story originated on the French Amazon site (the listing has now been taken down), seems to indicate that the current UK exclusivity is only temporary. Hopefully, that's a good sign that the Anthology will be announced for the U.S. at some point.
Original Story: The saga of the Assassins versus the Templars spans the ages, and it looks like you'll be able to re-live the entire struggle in the aptly named Assassin's Creed Anthology.
A Russian Assassin's Creed site has found an Amazon France listing of a five-game collection that includes Assassin's Creed, Assassin's Creed II, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, and the newly released Assassin's Creed III. All the DLC for these games will be included in the Anthology, as well as lithographs for each of the titles, although it's unknown if that includes any as-yet-unreleased content for AC III.
Eurogamer says a Ubisoft representative has confirmed the existence of the collection, and that more details (hopefully including price, release date, etc.) will officially be revealed later this week.

I could really use that since the only ones I've played is AC1+2, and I don't even have 1 anymore.
Excellent. I'll buy this since I've only played AC2. I'd like to see the rest of the AC games and relive the story of AC2.
The german Amazon also lists the "Assassin's Creed Anthology Edition":
Yes!!!! I only own the first one so now I could own the rest!
much as i love ac ( evenb if i didn't love the last 2 games as much as the 1st 2-3 ) this would be sweet ...but i wont be able to offored repurchasing the collection...again
I almost swore, but then I realized I don't actually own any of them. I just borrow them indefinitely from friends and relatives. Depending on the price, I may pick this up.
Can't wait!!! hopefully this comes to the Wii U since I am getting Assassin's Creed 3 for it!!
