We just learned that Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is going to be receiving more single player content, in the form of a Desmon Miles DLC, we are now getting word that the inevitable franchise follow-up, Assassin’s Creed 3, has been given an official release date. October 30th, 2012.
Details remain extremely scarce about what we can expect from the upcoming title but Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot, officially dropped the release date for the next installment in the third-person historical action franchise while speaking on an investors call.
To erase the concerns that Ubisoft is just brewing together another “expansion,” Guillemot confirmed that the studio has been working hard on this title for the laste three years already – with (presumably) another six months to go. ”We will push the title a lot because it’s a fantastic product that the team has been working for three years. What we have seen is just fabulous.”
As a result of the “fabulous” results, the studio head also promised that the title would represent “the biggest launch in Ubisoft history.”
Guillemot didn’t elaborate on what players might expect from the actual game – though we do know that Assassin’s Creed 3 is going to present an all new chapter in the series, with an all new assassin protagonist. The most recent speculation suggests that gamers will jump into the boots of an assassin operating during the American Revolution.
While the possibilities seem in the American Revolution setting seem quite awesome, it is difficult to imagine a locale that is so far removed in both terms of geography and time, from the events in Italy. One thing we know for sure – Ezio Auditore will not be coming back in the next installment, but given the deep and complicated storyline that we have seen runninh through the series, his legacy will have to leave some sort of seismic importance to whatever comes next.
