So I got this email from ubisoft just now:

So start speculating!

Myself, I think looking at him that he is dressed for colder weather, seeing the fur, also beard so then AC3 will take place in an important city probably somewhere in the time after da vinci but before anything all to modern.

So I'm calling it now: Assassins Creed 3 plays in Russia, Moscow most likely, during the time of the Romanovs.

@Nictel: Guess you haven't heard of AC: Revelations? That's still Ezio, and he's in Constantinople now.

Have you been trapped in an Animus for the past month?

That looks a lot like Ezio. I don't think Ubisoft would reveal a new Assassin through an E-mail invite. That just seems clueless even for them.

Failure is funny to watch.

That is not a new assassin at all, in fact we've been hanging out with that guy for a long time now

Ahahaha. 
The animus allows the viewing of future generations in AC4. Or is it 3? Whatever, annualising this franchise is going to kill it.

Maybe he's the modern templar? He has a shield on his back!

God, I want the AC universe to meld with Splinter Cell so bad. Those games are already totally crazy, just say Altair is an ancestor of Fisher and I'd be happy.

How... would that work?

Also, this thread is hilarious.

Well. It's not impossible, but since Fisher doesn't have any assassin powers, that's not very likely. Then again, one could always say that modern technology have replaced the need to have that Eagle Vision. 
Also; Fisher and the Splinter Cells are the closest modern operatives that works in similar fashions as the assassins. Climbing and stealth and quick executions.  
  
It's impossible they'll go that route for the simple reason that Splinter Cell is a Tom Clancy franchise, and I don't think they want to mix it up. Unless that's the real reason why they are holding off on AC3. :P

@PhatSeeJay: I know it won't happen, but it's just too funny in my mind. I've already come up with the super-cheesy, but totally plausible way it would tie in and would love to hear the Bomb Crew react to that actually happening in game. :P
