Assassin's Creed III Spotted On Developer Resume
Well, you figured it was happening but it's nice to have some documented evidence.
We knew we'd be seeing a new installment in the immensely popular Assassin's Creed series this year, but we weren't sure about the title. And while we still don't know anything about the setting, a developer's resume on LinkedIn (via Game Sector) has confirmed the existence of "Assassin's Creed III." This developer lists the following projects on his resume:
- Assassin’s Creed 3 (in-production)
- Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood (2010) PS3, X360, PC
- Assassin’s Creed 2 (2009) PS3, X360, PC
Of course, this doesn't really tell us anything, but provided the title is accurate, maybe there is a hint: the reason why the last was dubbed "Brotherhood" and didn't have a roman numeral is because it was a sequel to Assassin's Creed II. And we're pretty sure we heard Ubisoft say they were reserving the numbered iterations for all-new adventures; i.e., a new hero and new setting.
So maybe they're done with Ezio and while he's one of the best characters of the generation, we're perfectly willing to go for something new. Just keep the same gameplay, Ubisoft; don't you dare mess with that winning formula. I will freak...out.
