New Assassin's Creed announced
The next Assassin's Creed videogame will have a new setting and a new hero according to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot
In news sure to please fans of hooded killers in videogames everywhere, a new Assassin's Creed game has been confirmed for release sometime before April of next year.
Ubisoft's CEO Yves Guillemot told investors that the software publisher plans to punch out a new installment in the series that will feature a new protagonist and a new setting. He made the announcement during a presentation where he also noted that the latest home console entry in the series, Assassin's Creed III, has sold 12 million units worldwide.
The announcement has set the blogosphere buzzing, with analysts opining that it's likely that the new game will be announced at the coming E3 videogames expo in Los Angeles this June.
We have to confess to being rather huge Assassin's Creed fans over here at T3. But while we though the world and the story contained in Assassin's Creed III were top notch, we have to confess its moody protagonist Connor Kenway left us rather cold, so it's rather welcome news to hear that we've seen the last of him.
For our money, we'd love to see the series transported to Dickensian with a new cowled protagonist fighting shadowy secret societies - say, the Hellfire Club, or the Masons - as Jack The Ripper prowls the West End. You getting all this, Ubisoft?
