Rumours surrounding the next instalment of Assassin’s Creed‘s have surfaced today. According to reports the next title will be set during the American Revolution.
Ubisoft won’t officially be announcing the new game before the end of March, but CVG claims that “a source close to the project” has spilled the beans on the 18th century backdrop and confirmed that the game will feature a new lead character.
Ubisoft hinted at an American setting for the next entry in the series before, having last year included “The confrontation between British colonists and native Americans during The American Revolution” as a possible setting in a fan survey.
The publisher hasn’t yet made any comment on these latest rumours. Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot, has previously said that the next Assassin’s Creed will be the “biggest to date.”
