Supply and demand. Our faithful old economic system lives and dies by it, and Ubisoft's series about living and dying (mostly the second thing) is carrying on accordingly. If you're hoping to take a nice murder vacation through some exotic new locale, however, know this: Ezio's back for one last stab at greatness (and, you know, stabbing); Assassin's Creed III this ain't.
Assassin's Creed: Revelations
, the new game will pick up after Brotherhood and see Ezio “walk in the footsteps of his legendary mentor, Altaïr, on a journey of discovery and revelation.” Apparently, those footsteps will lead him to Constantinople, where – wouldn't you know it – Templars are ruining everything and just generally being the worst.
“Refined and expanded” multiplayer's also in the cards, although Ubisoft hasn't explained exactly what that'll mean just yet. Fingers crossed for hidden blades hidden inside other hidden blades.
As of now, the game's set to launch simultaneously on all platforms in November. You may, however, want to keep a grain of salt or two handy, seeing as Assassin's Creed II and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood both tried similar sweet talk and then got smacked with the Delay Bat into the far reaches of spring. Even so, we're strong believers in “better late than never” – especially when long distance jump-stabbing is involved.
