Surprise! A New Assassin’s Creed Coming Out in 2012

November 9, 2011Written by Tony Wibowo

With Assassin’s Creed Revelations coming out next week, Ezio’s and Altair’s story arcs will be coming to an end. But what about Desmond’s story? Well, you’ll be able to find out how his story ends in the next game, which is scheduled to release in 2012.

The news came from Ubisoft’s earning call, where CEO Yves Guillemot stated:

There will be another great, full-fledged Assassin’s Creed title next year, It will be a major release and we’ll be communicating more about it in the coming months.

Yves also detailed the story of the next game:

In Assassin’s Creed we set up a timeline with this whole end of the world plot of December 2012. That’s fast approaching, and the story we have to tell, we obviously need to do it before we arrive at that point. We have the Ezio cycle and the Altair cycle, and both of those are set to conclude in Revelations, and we have the Desmond cycle, which is set to end on December 2012. But there’s many cycles within the brand – that’s the whole point. History is our playground.

Are you guys still excited about another iteration in the series? Or are they pushing the games out too closely? Sounds off in the comment section below.
