New Assassin's Creed to be unveiled?

Ubisoft will host a mysterious Assassin’s Creed-related press event on February 27.

Earlier this month, the publisher confirmed a new Assassin’s Creed title starring a new hero and setting, and made by a new team, for launch in fiscal year 2014.

Considering the timing, we’d guess this press event has something to do with that.

Thanks, MCV.

    Please be China during Boxer Rebellion, or the actual logical setting(s) that’s a super spoiler from AC3.

  • Potionzmaster

    Something oriental (China!) would be awesome :D

  • Of course for Ps4 And Next Xbox. :D

    • syaznifaiq

      and also Wii U ..IMO that console have potential to be no 1 again once 3rd party developer trust them to make multiplatform on Wii U

      • Dede Ogbe

        when was it ever number 1?? It’s doing almost as bad as the vita in Japan

        • syaznifaiq

          i said ” have potential ” ..

          • Dede Ogbe

            Ah sorry my mistake. Your positioning of ‘again’ confused me

    • Prodigy-X

      PS3 & 360 as well

  • I hope the new Assassin’s Creed will also be announced to Vita

  • The people want china… give them that. I myself d not play AC but yeah… I will keep an eye on this.

    Creed liberation 2.
    No multiplayer … 2 cities , more bayou.Aveline looking for artifacts of the first civilisation

    Day one

    • Prodigy-X

      No it should have multiplayer.

      • Danny Kriegbaum Laursen

        It shall not have MP, if it’s as bad as Liberation

        • Prodigy-X

          It shall have multiplayer and if you don’t like it then don’t play it.

    China or Russia. Any other setting is gonna have to be mighty creative to get me on board. The comics set in Russia were awesome and this guy on Deviantart has me convinced that China would be a worthwhile place for the series to go, so I hope it’s one of those.

    I mean apart from the Middle East, the rest of the series has been set in the western world. Let’s take a look in the other direction, eh Ubi?

    Anyhow, they must be doing something huge with this if it’s getting its own press conference. AC3 certainly didn’t get one.

  • Seven days after the PS4 announcement? Awesome.

    A Soviet Assassin’s Creed game would be a dream come true… The comics are wonderful.

  • shogunknight

    Futuristic assassins creed please….

    • MrRobbyM

      I’ll take ANY AC game that isn’t set in Europe or America. Russia, China, Japan, Africa. I don’t care. Whatever time period.

      Though if there is a futuristic AC game, it’d definitely have to change up the combat to be more actiony.

    • Skerj

      Well if you play 3. ..

  • Prodigy-X

    Tease in montage video tomorrow then full reveal next week.

  • Bloodios

    More Assassin’s Greed…

  • Danny Kriegbaum Laursen

    Assassin’s Creed: Japan

  • I’m surprised this is happening so soon. This pretty much tells us that this new AC game has already been in development for a while. They probably were working on this while developing AC3.

    Everyone seems to be mentioning China. That would make sense to me, considering they sorta opened the door to China a bit in the games. Yes, I’m referring to Shao Jun.

    She was in the Assassin’s Creed: Embers animated movie. Which is worth watching just to see Ezio at a very old age. (No spoilers here!)

    I was surprised when they skipped over Shao Jun the first time around. I thought her story would make for a cool game. You can read a ton about her here – http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Shao_Jun

    If you have played AC3, Achilles mentions that she created the rope dart. I love the rope dart.
