Assassin’s Creed III is still fresh on everyone’s minds, but that hasn’t stopped Ubisoft from already confirming the existence of the next game in the franchise. According to an earnings call held earlier today, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot revealed that a new title is in the works and that it will launch around April of 2014 at the earliest.
Guillemot stressed during the call that this will not be another game starring Connor and set during his time period. Instead, everything about the game will be new, including the team working on it. No mention was made on whether it will be for current or next gen systems.
“In financial 2014, we will introduce an all-new ‘Assassin’s Creed’ hero, within an all-new team and time period, and we expect it to be another major leap forward for the franchise.”
It also seems that the team behind Assassin’s Creed III will not be the same one working on this new, unnamed title. According to Guillemot, this is done so that each team has plenty of time to make each installment.
“It is the benefit of multiple teams, working on multiple chapters of the brand, each getting several years to make their versions of an ‘Assassin’s Creed’ game.”
That’s all we know so far about this new Assassin’s Creed game, but more information will likely be revealed during E3 2013. The next batch of Assassin’s Creed content will be the ‘The Tyranny of King Washington’ three-part DLC that will be arriving for the third game over the next few months.
