Ubisoft registers several ‘Assassin’s Creed Initiate’ domain names

Assassin's Creed Initiate

With all the Assassin’s Creed buzz focused on the upcoming release of Assassin’s Creed III, Ubisoft has registered a slew of domains for another project in the franchise called “Assassin’s Creed: Initiate”.

On August 21, 2012, Ubisoft went out and registered names like (Whois), (Whois) and (Whois) – a dozen in total.

The full list of domain registrations includes:

At this point, it’s unknown what the exact plans are for “Assassin’s Creed Initiate” or “Assassin’s Creed Initiates”, whatever the official title may be.

Could it be for a new videogame? A tie-in to the launch of Assassin’s Creed III? Or some other media or event?

Ubisoft has made no official announcement, so we’ll have to wait and see a little bit longer.

On a domain-related note, Ubisoft also registered (Whois) for the next DLC pack for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, which was announced just yesterday.

Ubisoft Entertainment registers “Just Dance Floor” domain names

Katy Perry Just Dance 2

Early last month, a list of twenty-five titles for the Wii U were leaked from a UK Blockbuster.  While the games haven’t been confirmed, many of the possible titles, which includes Just Dance 4, will almost certainly be released.

Though Ubisoft has not announced anything official, the company is now hinting at something new called “Just Dance: Floor”.

On May 31, 2012, Ubisoft Entertainment registered the domain names (Whois) and (Whois).

“Just Dance Floor” may or may not have anything to do with “Just Dance 4” and it’s unknown whether it’s a game or some type of “dance floor” device to support the game.

Currently, neither domain resolves to a web page, but it’s likely Ubisoft will announce something regarding Just Dance at E3 2012 this upcoming week.

Ubisoft settles on “Face Your Insanity” tagline for Far Cry 3 according to domain

Far Cry 3: Face Your Insanity

Back in March, a GameFAQs member completed a market research survey for Far Cry 3 box art.  They were also asked their opinion for the tagline “Face your insanity”.

Many of the people who responded in the forum liked the tagline.  One person even replied, “Face your insanity is the perfect tagline for this game.”

Now, it looks like Ubisoft has settled on the tagline “Face Your Insanity” for the upcoming first-person shooter video game.  On May 17, 2012, Ubisoft registered the domain name (Whois).

At the time of this story, the domain name does not resolve to a web page.

Far Cry 3 is expected to be released in September.

Last year, it was rumored that Nintendo would show off a new line of games at E3 for the Wii U (then referred to as “Project Cafe”).

One of those games in the list by Ubisoft was a game called “Rayman Legends”.

Now, that game looks to be more official according to two new domain names registered by Ubisoft this week that include (Whois) and (Whois).

Though nothing official has been announced, this may be another title slated for Nintendo’s Wii U, as Ubisoft has said it has big plans for the console.

Earlier this week, a marketing survey hinted at a Rayman Origins sequel of mythic proportions.

[Updated on April 27, 2012:. Ubisoft has confirmed Rayman Legends.  The game is currently in development from Michel Ancel and his team in Montpellier.]

Ubisoft registers domain


Ubi-this.  And Ubi-that.  Video game publisher Ubisoft has registered a new domain name this week:

According to Whois records, Ubisoft Entertainment purchased the name on March 29, 2012.

It’s unknown what the future will bring for Ubiloud.  As of right now, the domain name does not resolve to a web page.

In a recent interview with Pocket-lint, Chris Early, head of digital at Ubisoft, said the company will launch a cloud-based storage system that will allow players to save game data across multiple devices such as an iPhone and iPad.

Could Ubiloud be the name of the new cloud-based storage service?

That’s probably a stretch.  But with already owned by someone else, anything is possible, including the name being nothing more than a defensive purchase to prevent others from owning the name.
