"Major" Assassin's Creed title confirmed for 2012

"Full-fledged" new title to be revealed soon.

There will be a "major" new entry in the Assassin's Creed franchise in 2012, Ubisoft has confirmed.

CEO Yves Guillemot made the announcement during an investor call earlier today, but didn't offer any more precise details as to what to expect.

"There will be another great, full-fledged Assassin's Creed title next year," he said. "It will be another major release and we will be communicating more about it in the coming months."

Last month, series creative lead Alexandre Amacio gave Eurogamer a few hints as to what we can expect from the next game in the series.

"In Assassin's Creed we set up a timeline with this whole end of the world plot of December 2012," he explained. "That's fast approaching, and the story we have to tell, we obviously need to do it before we arrive at that point."

This year's Assassin's Creed title, Revelations, is due on shelves next week.
