According to news over at Venture Beat Ubisofts’ a new Assassin’s Creed game will be getting a new installment later on in 2013–this year. Considering we’ve seen at least once new game in the series since 2007 this should come as no surprise. According to a conference call to investors (I’m getting this from Venture Beat, but where they got it I have no idea, they fail to mention any source at all, take this with a touch of salt) Ubisoft chief executive officer Yves Guillemot said the following:
“We are delighted and proud to announce today that in [fiscal 2014], we will introduce an all-new Assassin’s Creed hero,” said Guillemot. “With an all new time period, we expect it to be another major leap forward for the franchise. [This] is the benefit of multiple teams working on multiple chapters of the project, each [gets] several years to make their versions of an Assassin’s Creed game.”
Will we finally see a female in the lead on a full blown Assassin’s Creed game (I’m not counting Liberation), will it be that guy we saw a picture of a bit ago, or maybe just another run-of-the-mill male lead. I didn’t dislike Desmond, but I never had any reason to like him very much either. I felt he was as generic as a hero could be. We’ll see what news develops and update when we have more info.
