Ubisoft announces Assassin's Creed 4, also surprises nobody

Another year, another blade-wielding master assassin. But where will Ubisoft's latest blood-filled historical journey take us this time?

Ubisoft has confirmed that it will be releasing a new Assassin's Creed title during its next fiscal year. In other words, sometime between April 1st to March 31st 2014. No surprises there, eh?

Excitingly, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has also confirmed that we'll be seeing an all-new assassin in a completely different time period which will be "another major leap forward for the franchise". Though if they keep skipping ahead a couple of hundred years each time, we'll be in the present day by Assassin's Creed 5.

With multiple teams working on different versions of Assassin's Creed games, work on this newest installment has probably already been going on for a year at least – so we have high hopes that the next blade-wielding iteration will build upon the five-star greatness of its Assassin's Creed III predecessor.
