Ubisoft seems to be focusing on bundling up series of games. According to Eurogamer, bundles for the Far Cry series and the Splinter cell series have been spotted online. While the Far Cry bundle will be on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, the Splinter Cell bundle seems only available for the PC.
As of yet, no further information is available regarding which games the bundles will have, and the closest thing we have to a release date is a "TBC-2013". The console versions of the Ultimate Far Cry Compilation and the Ultimate Splinter Cell Compilation seem to be priced at £39.99, while the PC versions for both the compilations seems to be priced at £29.99.

The Assassin’s Creed series deals with a secret war that has lasted for millennia between the Assassins and the Templars. The Assassins seek to fight for the free will of people, while the Templars seek to control them. The first game was set during the Holy Crusades in Jerusalem. Protagonist Altaïr ibn-La'Ahad would have to jump from rooftops and sneak into groups of people in order to find and assassinate his targets.
The second game was set during the Renaissance era in Florence. The main protagonist of the 'II' series of games – Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations – is Ezio Auditore. The II series of games dealt with the evolution of Ezio as a character, who starts out as a revenge-driven teenager and ends up as a highly-skilled master of Assassins. Altaïr is also featured in Revelations, and the aged assassin’s last few days are shown. The secondary protagonist of the series is Desmond Miles, who is accessing his 'genetic memory' to live the lives of his ancestors Altaïr and Ezio.
The latest game in the series puts you in control of Connor Kenway as you travel through the frontier and watch the American Revolution unfold.
