New Assassin's Creed Coming In 2012

Ubisoft will release another Assassin's Creed title next year, the publisher said.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed the news during the company's earnings call this morning. "There will be another great, full-fledged Assassin’s Creed title next year," he said. "It will be a major release and we’ll be communicating more about it in the coming months."

This should come as no surprise to fans as Ubisoft has made an annual release of Assassin's Creed since the release of Assassin's Creed 2. Early details from a Eurogramer interview last month with Assassin's Creed Revelations' creative director Alexandre Amancio hint the new game will conclude Desmond's storyline.

"In Assassin's Creed we set up a timeline with this whole end of the world plot of December 2012. That's fast approaching, and the story we have to tell, we obviously need to do it before we arrive at that point.," he said. "We have the Ezio cycle and the Altair cycle, and both of those are set to conclude in Revelations, and we have the Desmond cycle, which is set to end on December 2012. But there's many cycles within the brand – that's the whole point. History is our playground."
