Well, this is a shock. According to a recent financial release from Ubisoft, we can expect a new "episode" of Assassin's Creed
within the company's next fiscal year, starting April 2010. That includes this year
. Want another shock? It's going to have an "online multiplayer mode." Considering the second in the series has already moved six million
units, it's not a huge surprise, but this does seem pretty darn fast.
Now before you get too excited, this doesn't necessarily mean we'll be getting Assassin's Creed 3
by next April -- the release stops short of applying a number,
and the use of the word "episode" leads us to wonder if this will be some kind of DLC add-on
says it was told by Ubisoft that the note in the release "refers specifically to an entirely new game and not content associated with AC2
."] Heck, there's not even a platform mentioned. We're contacting Ubisoft for clarification as we speak.
