Assassin's Creed III: "A New Hero And A New Setting"
Gee, we were just getting used to the idea of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood this fall.
But we don't mind if Ubisoft wants to continue on with this awesome series, and if they're willing to talk about Assassin's Creed III already, we're listening. Ubisoft Production Manager Jean-Francois Boivin has revealed the first ever details for ACIII and the highlights are these: a new setting and a new hero. This means Ezio's return in Brotherhood will be his final appearance. Boivin said they intend to introduce a new setting and main character "with each numbered title." He goes on to say that they've known for a long time where the franchise is headed and remember, the team said they've had the story in place for Ezio's follow-up for quite some time. That's why there will only be a one-year gap between ACII and Brotherhood and for the record, ACIII will not be ready in 2011. At least, that's what we've heard.
Provided they don't go overboard with the new multiplayer component in the upcoming title in November, we'll likely be plenty happy. This is rapidly becoming one of the most impressive and fulfilling franchises of the generation.
