Buried amongst business terms, Ubisoft confirmed that a new Assassin’s Creed game is in development during its earnings call earlier this week. The title will supposedly star a new protagonist and will be set in a fresh time period – but, unsurprisingly, additional details are scarce.

Development is being led by a different team to Assassin’s Creed III, though there’s no word on who’s taking the reins. We imagine that, as usual, the publisher will have multiple studios working on different components of the game. The title’s due out at some point between April 2013 and March 2014, but history indicates that it will be ready around November.

We’re still secretly hoping for a Victorian London backdrop, but we suppose that anything’s possible. Where would you like to see the series head next? Let us know in the comments section below.
