The Assassin's Creed series will be returning for the fourth holiday season in a row. Today Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed that Assassin's Creed 3 is on the way. He even provided a release date.
"Assassin's Creed 3 is the true next generation of both the Assassin's Creed brand and interactive entertainment/storytelling in general," Guillemot said during an investor's conference call (via Joystiq).
Sadly, he didn't provide any other information on the game other than the October 30th release date. We were hoping Ubisoft would immediately follow up with a press release and a flashy trailer but that's not happening just yet.
"You mean, besides the release date? Nope, no more info on #AC3 today," said the official AC twitter.
All we know thus far about AC3 is that it won't star Ezio Auditore and won't take place in the Renaissance. Assassin's Creed Revelations marked the end of that era in the series. Rumor has it that the game will be set during the American Revolution. Other settings considered by Ubisoft included Victorian England, ancient Egypt, and feudal Japan.
During the investors call, Guillemot said that AC3 is the most expensive game in the series so far. It's been in development for three years. Presumably that means we'll see more dramatic upgrades in this game than we've seen in the last two installments in the series.
