Ubisoft is promising some storyline resolution in Revelations, but it's hardly the end of the line.

Ubisoft has made the enormously successful Assassin’s Creed franchise its Call of Duty by this point, able to put together well-received iterations of the series on an annual basis.

That will continue next year, as well, company CEO Yves Guillemot revealed on an investor call this morning.

Guillemot described next year’s entry as another “major” installment for Assassin’s Creed, but didn’t reveal any details on the game itself, teasing details would be available in the “coming months.”

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, which is supposed to bring an end to both Ezio and Altair’s storylines, is the fourth Assassin’s Creed game.

Expected... 
 
EDIT: WOW! Call me dumb, but that's the quest everyone talks about? I never cared for quests so i didn't knew. Man, now i feel bad for saying just one word.

It's a-me, Ezio!

I like him and all, but it's time to move on. Desmond's turn.

Feels like AC:Rev isn't getting all the attention is would normaly

*tries to put a surprised face* wow, really?

#6 Posted by Christian8s (7 posts) -

Yay?

#7 Posted by Marz (5658 posts) -

I think we all expect Assassin's Creed 3 to be next year :O

#8 Posted by Rhombus_Of_Terror (2130 posts) -

It should be called Assassin's Creed 3. No subtitle, short name, new story, and I'll be fine with that.

#9 Posted by Mystyr_E (1194 posts) -

ugh, just give me a new Prince of Persia damnit!

#10 Posted by buhssuht (438 posts) -

as long as they don't pull activions, im fine

#11 Posted by 2Thumbs (94 posts) -

Assassins Creed 3 then... Or would they call it 5?

#12 Posted by Ezekeilpurger (322 posts) -

E3 2012 we will finally hear news about Assassin's Creed 3, the third Assassin's Creed game!

#13 Posted by Jack268 (3387 posts) -

Yeah, Revelations ends the Ezio saga, and then they make a new saga with 3 and then they end it without milking the franchise beyond saving 
 
in a perfect world

Thought they might have had a bit more of a gap if they're developing a new protagonist and storyline. I guess if they left it any later it might be around the time they'd be starting developing for the next round of consoles though.

#15 Posted by TooWalrus (13232 posts) -

They haven't let me down so far. Eleven months is long enough for me to want more Assassin's Creed again. Looking forward to it.

#16 Posted by Claude (16254 posts) -

I loved the first two, but couldn't finish Brotherhood. I think I'm out.

#17 Posted by CollegeGuyMike (390 posts) -

Well they did say they want to end Desmond's story in the year that the game takes place in. It makes sense.. At least for 3 we will have a new time period and assassin.

#18 Posted by Jayzilla (2567 posts) -

i was ready for all desmond outing in ac2. enough already!

#19 Posted by JoeyRavn (4992 posts) -

I'm totally OK with this. More AC is always welcome in my book.

#20 Posted by OneManX (1693 posts) -

I dunno... I LOVE Assassin's Creed, probably my favorite series of games in this gen of consoles. But I'm starting to feel a bit nervous. Revelation looks to be amazing, but i dunno if they should make, what I would assume to be, Assassin's Creed 3 so soon without giving the series a little break.

#21 Posted by Deadmanforking (578 posts) -

Great?

I guess they havent gone wrong so far...

#22 Posted by Vorbis (2750 posts) -

AC3 with a new Assassin or I'm going to lose interest. Still finding it hard to care about Revelations but will have to get it regardless just to see what happens with Desmond.

#24 Posted by Jeffk38uk (716 posts) -

Like that's a shock, but one I'm fine with. And since we're ending Altair's and Ezio's plots in Rev, should be interesting how it'll resolve itself in this "third" game.

#25 Posted by Tennmuerti (8135 posts) -

I don't see any news here.

#27 Posted by rjayb89 (7726 posts) -

I still want to play as Kristen Bell, even though, you know.

I love AC a lot so I am totally ready for AC:Revelations and AC3 next year.

Congratulations to you anyway :)

I think I'm on the verge of AssCreed fatigue. Unless the next years title is something new(er), I think I'll put this series on the shelf for a while.

#30 Posted by SerHulse (685 posts) -

huh, is anyone else feeling like they are getting burnt out on this? I think it would do them well to take a year or 2 off for now.

#31 Edited by Rapid (1379 posts) -

I hope they change it up in the next instalment   
Set AC3 in somewhere like Edo or earlier Japan in a different looking aesthetic and tone.  
SENGOKU CREED

Can't believe people aren't bored of this yet

#33 Posted by WJist (314 posts) -

There's a lot of questions to answer after the ending of the last game. I'd like to see the Brotherhood mechanic expanded a little more, MGS: Peace Walker-style, probably my favorite part of the last AC game besides the refreshing multiplayer.

#34 Posted by MeatSim (10892 posts) -

Maybe I will be over my Assassins Creed fatigue by then.

#35 Edited by BlatantNinja23 (930 posts) -

I'm sure it's AC 3... but there's a part of me that would actually rather have AC 3 in the next console cycle, and i want a new Prince of Persia preferably a sequel to the 08 game. But I love AC and they've continued to get better and better, so i have no issue getting one each year.

They should do a game where your character creates the weapons and/or the gadgets he uses. Or maybe manage a "brotherhood of assassins" in a bigger scale, maybe with a few player choices. I don't know.

Alright, Assassin's Creed: London. Gimme!

#38 Posted by jackelbeaver (136 posts) -

maybe it'll be a complete pack of 1 2 B R? Can't be 3 already..unless they've been secretly working on it all this time..

I imagine they have been developing 3 since finishing 2. I doubt BroHood and Rev have taken all of their resources, it's not like they altered the gameplay or engine that much.

#40 Posted by DeadDorf (388 posts) -

Enough! You need to give franchises a breather of at least 2 years otherwise they go stale fast.

#41 Posted by wickedsc3 (1046 posts) -

Great series, looking forward to whats next!

Yeah, that's the quest everyone talks about. It's not as hard as people make it out to be, as long as you're on the site pretty often. By far the easiest way to do it is get the first comment on some trailer for a random game not a lot of people care about. Or the first comment on a news article.

Or the first comment on basically anything that isn't announced on the homepage. People trying to get first comment on Quick Looks that are announced like 6 hours in advance are idiots, because there are going to be way more people trying for those, and your odds of getting first comment are low.

#43 Posted by InsidiousTuna (395 posts) -

The Game Informer cover that announced AC:R basically confirmed that 3 is coming next year, and AC:R is designed pretty much explicitly to set that up.

#44 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -

Most likely Assassins Creed 3.

#45 Posted by Stubee (382 posts) -

Keep em coming! More face and neck stabbing please!

#46 Posted by MysteriousBob (6272 posts) -

Just run it into the ground Ubisoft.

That would be fantastic! Give this person a raise!

#48 Posted by phrosnite (3518 posts) -

Why won't they put 500 people on a Prince of Persia game? AC is stupid. He will be dead in the first 10 sec if he wears that dumb hoodie.

Hell ya! I want to know what happened to the "prince" and Elika already!

I wish they would make an Assassin's Creed set in Mexico. I just watched The Mask of Zorro recently and it seemed like I was watching someone play Assassin's Creed in Mexico!
