Looks like it’s time for Ubisoft’s hooded hero to break out of stealth mode and celebrate: the company reports that the action adventure title Assassin’s Creed has sold 2.5 million copies worldwide in just 4 weeks. Although no official numbers were released, Ubisoft reports that the game is now the fastest-selling video game in US history and is on track to sell more than 5 million copies next year.

While the sales numbers for Assassin’s Creed are no doubt great news for Ubisoft, the company also took the time to announce that three of their most anticipated titles for 2008 have been pushed back by at least one quarter. The titles affected include Tom Clancy’s EndWar, Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway and Far Cry 2, which are now scheduled for sometime in the fiscal 2008-09 year, back from the previously announced fiscal fourth quarter of 2007-2008.

No specific reasons were given for the delays, but while the announcement may be frustrating to some gamers, it seems that both Dark Messiah of Might and Magic: Elements and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2 are still on track as Ubisoft's first quarter releases.
