Assassin's Creed 3 arrives on October 30

What is Assassin's Creed 3? Beyond a name and a distant release date (October 30), we don't have a damn clue. But that was all the information given today during an Ubisoft financials call hosted by company head Yves Guillemot. "Assassin's Creed 3 is the true next generation of both the Assassin's Creed brand and interactive entertainment/storytelling in general," Guillemot said of the game.

He went on to say that Ubi is investing in AC3 more than any past title in the franchise, and that he expects it to sell beyond the 7 million racked up by Revelations. The game has apparently been in development for three years according to Guillemot, which we're hoping means it's not set in Italy again. No other details were offered for now, and Guillemot added that we'll hear more about the game in the coming months.

We can guess that the upcoming game likely won't feature series star Ezio Auditore, as Ubi has claimed his trilogy is over. And it looks like this game will likely conclude the current story arc. Oh, and it's also possible that this is heading to Wii U, given that there's some form of AC title in the works for Nintendo's Wii successor. But that's all we got. We swear.
