The Next Assassin’s Creed Won’t Star Connor

Interestingly, we're also heading to a new moment in history.

It’s little surprise Ubisoft is prepping another Assassin’s Creed game, but given the many times the company had us playing as Ezio, it’s interesting to learn Connor won’t be back next time.

Additionally, we’ll be heading to a new moment in history. Goodbye, Revolutionary War!

Ubisoft made the announcement on its earnings call this morning, revealing another Assassin’s Creed game is in development, and that it's scheduled for a release in the next fiscal year. Ubisoft's next fiscal year ends March 2014, and it’s likely Ubisoft will continue sticking to its holiday timeframe.

In addition to being vague on a release date, it’s also unclear whether the next Assassin’s Creed will remain only on the current set of consoles, or straddle the current and next-generation sets of hardware. With E3 not all that far away, it won’t be long until we have a better picture of the future.

Connor could still return in a future game. My problems with Assassin's Creed III weren't on his shoulders!
