Ubisoft has launched a teaser site for Assassin's Creed 2. While there isn't much to see just yet beyond a quick Flash animation and an invitation to check out the next issue of Game Informer, that animation says quite a lot about the game's setting.
While we had previously heard back in November that the game would be set in the French Revolution, that bit of info appears to be completely incorrect. The teaser site has a distinctive Italian Renaissance look to it. So will we be running around in someone else's ancestral memories, stabbing famous old dudes like Leonardo Da Vinci? Signs point to "answer unclear, ask again later." At the moment, it seems like only Game Informer knows for sure.
Another section of the site has you print out a logo and hold it up to a webcam to unlock more details. I went through all that, but didn't actually see anything new. Hmm.
