Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot announced that a new Assassin’s Creed title is coming in 2012, expected to be Assassin’s Creed 3. Normally the main games are always released in the same month, mid-November, but this time the Assassin’s Creed 3 release date was confirmed at an investors call as October 31st, 2012. It will be released on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. It’s also in development for the Nintendo Wii U.

Guillemot says the game will be a “major” installment in the series, and “the biggest launch in Ubisoft history”, but remains tight-lipped about any further details beyond the release date.

  • “There will be another great, full-fledged Assassin’s Creed title next year,” he told investors. “It will be another major release and we will be communicating more about it in the coming months.” He would later go on to confirm Assassin’s Creed III has been in development for three years.

    This confirms comments made by Assassin’s Creed Revelations Creative Lead Alexandre Amacio last month, who revealed that the next installment would be the last chapter in Desmond’s story. “In Assassin’s Creed we set up a timeline with this whole end of the world plot of December 2012. That’s fast approaching, and the story we have to tell, we obviously need to do it before we arrive at that point,” Amacio said at the time. “Assassin’s Creed is all about cycles – we have the Ezio cycle and the Altair cycle, and both of those are set to conclude in Revelations and we have the Desmond cycle, which is set to end on December 2012.”

    Guillemot also said that pre-orders for Assassin’s Creed: Revelations were “significantly higher” than figures for Brotherhood, yet the firm is still expecting a “double digit decline” in sales for Revelations compared to the other title.

    Assassin’s Creed: Revelations will hit the shelves on November 15, 2011 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. For Microsoft Windows PC, the game is delayed until November 29, 2011.

      i kno rite? is it 2 1/2?

    • Would have been nice to see Ezio go off in the distance on the current one

    • Don’t forget the Apple was there too but Desmond has that now so those things would/could be gone

    • There’s a huge gap between Brotherhood and Revelations for Ezio

    • They are on recording stating they have more Ezio stories just in case the bosses want another one pumping out.  Don’t forget the large gap too between brotherhood and Revelations

      I like the fact that AC3 will be set in Amercia, but I’m interested to know how the Assassins moved from Rome and Constantinople all the way across the ocean. The game has been set it Europe the whole time.  How and why did the Assassins come to the west?  How will the platforming work when there are no tall buildings to climb or viewpoints?  If ubisoft does not address these issues I belive the game will suffer for it.  I watched the trailer and saw how the new guy was running through the trees, which is pretty cool, but it takes more than tree hoping to be an Assassin.  What about the factions like La Volpe, or the Mercs did they move to amercia also?  Moving the Assassins to Amercia is a risking move in my opinion, lets hope in plays out and plays in to the world of AC.  That being said new weapons and more agility in combat would be something I would like to see.  Example,  a dodge move or a roll out of the way move in the middle of a fight would be cool,  setting you up for a backstab or sidestab.  Grabs would also be something to see.  Like tekken or soul calibur you could grab an enemy for an instant kill, combine this with killstreaks and the new character would be better the Ezio(a hard feat to accomplish).  A pet eagle to sent out to scout areas or situations was something I wanted scince the first AC.  Guanlets with slashing talons like an eagles’ feet would also be nice.  Assassin recruits should also be more controled.  Instead of just calling them and having them kill someone the player should have the ability to have them constantly.  They could tell the recuit to take a certain path across the city and meet at the same place as you.  Enemies killed by you recuit yield gold and bomb supplies that would instantly go into your inventory.  The recuit could also be told who to attack in battle like mass effect or rainbow six.  These are just somethings I would like to see in the new or future AC titles, the game stands alone as a breathtaking story and seamless combat as well as historical content like, Borgias, Da vinci, and King Richard.  I can’t wait to get my hands on the new AC3.  I have never been into a game more scince the Final Fantasy series!
