Assassin's Creed Getting Online Multiplayer Via

Ubisoft plans to release a new installment in its Assassin’s Creed franchise sometime before March 31, 2012. And, no, it is not Ubisoft's previously announced Assassin's Creed: Lost Legacy 3D coming to the Nintendo 3DS.


As CVG reports, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said during an investor call today that more details will be revealed in May, but he was willing to say that the next AC would be a “packaged title,” and it will be released “this year.” When asked for clarification, a Ubisoft rep told me Guillemot was referring to Ubisoft’s next fiscal year, not the 2011 calendar year.

This may in fact mean we will see a new AC by year’s end, since this period extends from April 1, 2011 to March 31, 2012, however Ubisoft said back in July that AC would be taking a breather in 2011, so I guess we’ll see.

Honestly, I would be shocked (if pleasantly surprised) if Ubisoft decided to officially announce in May that AC3 was coming out this holiday season (all previous console AC titles have released in November), a mere seven months before the end of the year, but crazier things have happened. I mean, Stephen Johnson just went downstairs to get a salad. Everything is permitted!

In other AC news, Ubisoft also announced today that Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood has now sold over 6.5 million units. Well done there.

Do you think we'll see AC3 this year, or next?
