Larry Hryb a.k.a. Major Nelson officially announced via Twitter yesterday that Assassn’s Creed II will be the next title that’ll be given away for free on the 16th of July as a part of the Games for Gold program – hoorah!
This announcement couldn’t have come any sooner after many gamers were expecting both ACII and Halo 3 were disappointed that Defence Grid: The Awakening was announced as the first title for July instead.
It remains to be seen whether this decision had always been on the cards or whether it was another people pleasing 180. It very much could be because a few days ago in response to the uproar Hryb wrote on his blog that the two games were just an example of the titles being given away and not actually the first two Games with Gold launch titles.
