per an investors call today, 10-30-2012.

Quote
Ubi boss Yves Guillemot proclaimed both that "Assassin's Creed III is the true next generation of both the Assassin's Creed brand and interactive entertainment/storytelling in general," and that it would be "the biggest launch in Ubisoft history."

no Ezio or Altair this time, and hopefully the end to Desmond's tale.

Really?i was expecting it to be him right until the series came up to date and then perhaps the last game would be set today with Desmond as the main character,no need for the Animus ...all these clues over the centuries(and the games),i was expecting it would be Des on a treasure hunt in the end

they didn't say the last part, that was my 'hopefully' since it seems to be taking forever to find out what exactly is going on (unless they revealed that in Revelations, which I haven't finished yet).  personally I'd think it'd be great for them to make this one epic, with maybe more than one setting in the past as Desmond finally puts all the pieces together in the modern setting.

yeah there will probably be another 20 of these games,when i think maybe it would be good if it DID end with this one

I have been meaning to pick up 'Revelations',think i will hang on a little longer as Single Player DLC has just been announced for that game,so like AC2 and AC:B,there will probably be a complete version out soon


so,where do we want Assassins Creed III to be set?

There have been all kinds of rumours from Elizabethan England to Japan and even Civil War America,again i always thought the last episode(the treasure hunt)would be in America

This is the conclusion to the end of the world story arc. No word if subsequent games will revolve around Desmond or present day. The have stated that since the EOW happens in 2012, this game needs to be out this fall.

you heard it here first -
Spoiler for Hiden:
the "last" game will be in the future, when you realize desmond was being played in an animus just as you were led to believe it was desmond in an animus playing altier / ezio.  and in that future, des will be finding the piecies of eden HE learned about, that the future animus user now needs to stave off whatever calamity is besetting his / her society.  and that society will be much like the "founders" one alluded to in the previous games.
  doopri for the win!

I'll stick this here,in case anyone is interested

was looking on GAME site to see how much ACR was and found this

UK release date is 23rd March 2012,priced 17.99


back to AC3,i found out that this game has been in development for 3 years,which means it was in development way back before Assassins Creed 2 was released

oh and i am gonna just say that i am betting this game will be delayed,only because every Assassins Creed game that has been released has been in November,this would be the first game outside of that month Tongue

If it's not ready by its launch date, it will get pushed out with whatever minor bugs it has. Look at the problem I had with AC:Rev for an example of Ubi's determination to meet deadlines.

some speculation on what the game may be about.  I like the Revolutionary War idea, but as another one of them says the setting wouldn't fit an AssCreed game since there weren't many tall structures to climb.

And yet Gameloft's AssCreed rip-off is exactly that, and it works really well.

Well, the definitely have to do something different anyway, Revelations pretty much has tapped out the gameplay.

I wouldn't be surprised if they try to play up more of the crowds and city aspects to deal with being on the ground a bit more.

Backstab?  just saw a video of it and it reminds me more of Uncharted than AssCreed, but from it's main website I can see where they were going for the AssCreed vibe.

It's Gameloft, so of course it's a knockoff and nowhere near the quality of what it's imitating, but you can still see how AssCreed could work in that setting.  And for a Gameloft game, it's actually pretty good.

Anyone see that CG movie they had for AC? That one pretty much pointed out that China would be the next locale, or at least something would be set in China. It's the one that shows the last moments of Ezio.

I mentioned that above.  from the background in the cover artwork I'm guessing a lot of it may take place in heavily wooded and mountainous areas though, so there could still be room for climbing and jumping.

also, I noticed something seems weird with the American flag-  it almost looks like something is in the circle of stars, but then again it could just be a snowflake.

there's another star in the middle right?

edit:
actually looking it up,the 3rd Maryland flag was the same..but yeah i am used to seeing it without the middle star as well

So now, instead of the outfit being made to basically blend in with the crowd, he's wearing something that actively makes him stand out in a crowd?

Actually, looking at those pictures, it's probably going to be set in the winter, white to blend in with the snow, and everything revolves around hiding in the woods.  Which is kind of too bad, one of the big draws of the stealthing/climbing from the earlier games was the architecture interaction and moving through crowds.  Of course, none of that's possible in the American Revolution setting, which begs the question, "Why would you put an Assassin's Creed game there?"  I'd have much preferred the feudal Asian setting that was being speculated before.

This is interesting

The new Hero's name is Connor/Ratohnhake:ton (pronounced Ra-doon-ha-gay-doo),his Father was English and his Mother was Native American
First thing that came to my mind when i heard that,was that this was some offspring from Pocahontas,but she was back in the 1600s

Lots of new details Here and i mean LOTS


quoted a few of them here,but lots more in the link

Sorry WBS,although he is in the game...

The game has fast travel because the game has more traveling.

The cities have a lot more subtle detail now in terms of ambient things that happen.


certainly liking this a lot more now than when i was first hearing about it


EDIT:i didn't see this picture before in that Joystiq link,I guess CK was right about tree climbing(actually i think he is stood on a rock,but still...)

well,according to Eurogamer,you still have the cities of New York and Boston on top of that
Quote
In addition to New York and Boston, around a third of the game takes place on the frontier, an area said to be 1.5 times bigger than Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's entire game map. There will be some kind of fast travel system to help you get around quickly.




was the Tower Defense in Revelations?,I have not played that one and i don't remember it in the first 3 games
