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

It's a-me, Ezio!

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
