Assassin's Creed strategy title planned?

World in Conflict team joins the franchise.

As any self-respecting cash-cow knows, you ain't nothing without a few spin-off titles under your belt. Duly, it seems Ubisoft might be looking to expand the Assassin's Creed franchise beyond its well-established third person foundations.

According to the publisher's Twitter feed, Ubisoft Massive – the Swedish studio behind the World in Conflict strategy franchise - is looking for new recruits to work an unannounced Assassin's Creed project.

Ubisoft's Annecy office, who were responsible for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's multiplayer sections, are also apparently involved. There's no mention of Ubisoft Montreal, who was responsible for all three main Assassin's Creeds

There's no further information at this time, but we know that the franchise has something brewing for 2011. Last month, Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot revealed, "There will be something around Assassin's [next year]. That's all we can say."

Then, a fortnight ago, an online survey popped up hinting at a few potential features for the next title in the series following the excellent Brotherhood.

Before you shove your fist in your mouth and start chewing, bear in mind that Ubisoft Massive knows what it's doing. World in Conflict won a 9/10 from Eurogamer's Dan Whitehead when it launched on PC last year.
