New Assassin's Creed announced, will have new character and time period

Multi-studio project to be released before April 2014, says publisher's chief exec

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot told investors on Thursday that Ubisoft plans to publish a new Assassin's Creed game during the 2014 financial year.


The game, developed across several of Ubisoft's global games development studios, will likely be introduced at E3 this year.

Although Guillemot didn't go into too much detail, it was confirmed the game will take place in a new time period and star a new character.

He made the announcement during an investor presentation where it was claimed that Assassin's Creed 3 sales have reached 12 million units globally.
