Ubisoft's decision to not publish a public demo for the first Assassin's Creed disappointed fans. They're going to be disappointed again, because a spokesman has said Assassin's Creed II won't get a demo, either.
Connected Consoles reports that, at the Eurogamer Expo, an Ubisoft rep told them straight up the game will not be getting a demo. Your only opportunity to try before you buy is if Ubi brings it to a public expo near you.
