The Assassins' Creed Wii U game is not Revelations, Ubisoft has confirmed.

In an interview with Swedish website Aftonbladet, translated by our Swedish brethren, Ubisoft mega boss Yves Guillemot said it's "for the future".

Here's the exact translation:

"We saw something about a new Assassin's Creed for Wii U. What can you say about that?" asks the website.

"Our next edition of Assassin's will be in a Wii U version," Guillemot replies.

"Assassin's Creed: Revelations?"

"No, not Revelations. For the future."

"So it's Assassin's Creed III? Or is it something else?

"I can't tell you that."

What does "for the future" mean? Some have speculated it means the Wii U game is set after Revelations, which sees Ezio parkour and stab in Ottoman Constantinople in 1511 AD.

Revelations also continues Desmond's story in the modern day, following the events of last year's Brotherhood.

It could of course be Assassin's Creed III, which, given the hugely popular series' annual release schedule, may fit with the Wii U launch.

Assassin's Creed Wii U was announced at E3 last month. Ubisoft's Quebec studio is currently working the game.

The controller's touch screen will display a persistent on-screen map and interactive database, allow for fast weapon selection, display alternative puzzles and be used for the game's eagle vision.

The game will re-use assets from the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 entries in the series.
