UPDATE: The pictures that were immediately taken down on the Assassin's Creed Facebook page have been replaced, and the "Like" campaign has started. If you want exclusive information regarding the new Assassin's Creed title, then you can head over to Ubisoft's page and try to expedite the process.
Gaming forum NeoGAF member Enosh may have accidentally uncovered the new Assassin's Creed game, Revelations, through some Facebook detective work. According to Enosh a few pictures and a flash file went up on the official Assassin's Creed Facebook page, but were immediately taken down.
Luckily for us, Enosh took a few screenshots of the fan page and a few community members were able to decrypt the flash file's Arabic letters in to "Altair Ibn La Ahd", the character from the first Assassin's Creed game's full name. Another piece of art revealed on Ubisoft's Facebook page teases more information in the May 13 issue of Game Informer magazine.
There's no information as to what type of game Assassin's Creed: Revelations might be from the pictures, only that fans will have to "like" the page in order to access an exclusive sneak peek. If the game may be getting a full magazine cover, it's likely that the new game might be coming out for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.
Azaïzia Aymar, a Production Manager at Ubisoft Montreal Tweeted about the whole Facebook situation quite a few times, saying: "indeed, the more you spread the word... The closer to the revelation you will be... Now it's your turn to work," and , "Well, let's say that everything will depend on you... All of you! ;) More details soon..."
BioWare and Electronic Arts have performed similar Facebook marketing campaigns with Dragon Age 2 and Battlefield 3, releasing trailers once the pages saw enough hits.
Even though Ubisoft said that they want to take a break from Assassin's Creed, they've still chugged forward with the series. Already there have been three fully fledged games on the PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, two games on the Nintendo DS, one on the PSP, one for Facebook and one for iPhone. Plus, another game is scheduled for a Nintendo 3DS release as well.
