Ubisoft announces new Assassin's Creed game *update*

Ubisoft has used its latest investor call to announce a new Assassin's Creed game.

CEO Yves Guillemot told investors that the publisher will release a new Assassin's Creed game during the 2014 financial year.

According to the CEO, the game will be developed across several of Ubisoft's global games development studios and will take place in a new time period and star a new character.

The game will likely be revealed in full at this year's E3 and will be released before April 2014 next year.

That's about all we know for now.


In slightly related news, it's been revealed that Assassin's Creed: Liberations is edging pretty close to 600,000 sales on PS Vita. That's some pretty good numbers for the handheld.

As Ubisoft says, "We wouldn't discount PS Vita - if you have the right product at the right quality - it could work".

No thanks. 3 wasn't terribly great. Liberations was OK but just felt too watered down and at times the lag and loading made it unplayable. More than happy to sit this series out from now on.

still playing A C 3 i think they need to improve the action abit more as it draged on early in the game and do away with missions like Ac 1 go and listen in on people etc , A c 2 is still the best

Hoho... for all the bluster about how Vita is selling like crap, it seems the established customer base is still strong enough in spending power to make the right game a big success after all. Call of Duty Declassified, garbage that it was, was also a massive seller according to estimates. Seems continued western support for the platform isn't quite the unrealistic fool's hope it once seemed.

Said this on the Ubiforums but... Firstly, new protagonist after a 2 year dev cycle?! Secondly, if this new Assassin is leaner than Connor he better not have the same moveset. Connor was stronger and did more powerful jumps etc, if Ezio had Connors moveset that would be ridiculous (as an example). I have a feeling they are milking this, which makes me sad. AC3 was overhyped for me. I didn't think it was a bad game, but when things get overhyped, your expectations get higher, only to fall. Im not even bothered about demos now seeing as most of the stuff in AC3 demos didnt even make it into the game.

Really haven't enjoyed an AC game since the second one, AC3 was good but I kept losing interest in it.

AC3 was my fave out of all of the Creed games..........I know that goes against the grain, but....I guess it was the setting of colonial America. And us British played a prominent part! Anyway, as always, I'll buy this!

Thought that 3 was good but a little bit boring at time's, and felt that the buildings were too small. On the previous ones could have a proper good climb on the monastery's and stuff which i missed in the more recent ones. Will certainly keep an eye out on the next destination they pick, That will be what ultimately decides whether i will buy it or not. Will also be interesting how they continue with the story too.

cannot see it being the console version of the games they like to release them for christmas and anyway half expect them to do that anyway this will be for handheld and ubisoft flagship title will probably rip up trees with vita owners but very few with other users

Meh, pathetic attempt to offset some of the bad feeling they created with their stupid Rayman decision.

AC in my view don't have any particular story, they seem to be wanting to only publish more and more AC games, it is a established brand and it will make them money, so why not go with it. I still need to start AC 3.

@Bham - Disagree, I think over the course of all five games, the AC stories have been well told, and fairly strong.

I'm hoping this new one is a console version, and it's in feudal japan. That, or medieval England.

Of course they're 'milking' it (as mentioned by previous posters). That's what the business is! I'm still on part 2 but have played a few mins of the 3rd. If you keep buying it, they keep re-inventing scenarios for it. They'll go all blade runner/1984 on us all for the 2014 instalment, you wait and see.

I agree with alot of others, I lost interest after the second one. They are all pretty much the same thing over and over again, same gameplay, just different setting. New IP please Ubisoft!
