Assassin's Creed III Dated, Has Been In Development For 3 Years
Ubisoft is really into this annualization thing.
Although they said they might take some time off before producing Assassin's Creed III (the first to boast a new protagonist since ACII), fans won't have to wait long before diving in again.
According to Kotaku, the French publisher has confirmed that Assassin's Creed III will launch on October 30, which means it'll even be here earlier than the franchise's traditional November release window.
Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot said it'll be "the biggest launch" in the company's history and in fact, the game has been in development for three years. That's very interesting, because it means a team has been working on it throughout both Brotherhood and Revelations. Right now, we don't know much about this new entry but we're certain that Ezio Auditore is done. So the question now is: what sort of main character would you like to see? And what setting(s) would you like to explore? Me, I always loved Italy; that's still my favorite.
But I wouldn't mind checking out other iconic eras in history. Maybe we could try England during the Knights of the Round Table. Or perhaps we could go even further back to the time of the Vikings' heyday... Who has some good ideas out there?
