So, this is really interesting. According to promotional art images snagged by a Best Buy employee, Ubisoft’s next entry in the Assassin’s Creed series will take place during the American Revolution. The image [via Kotaku] features an assassin in front of the original Continental flag.
The hero appears to possibly be Native American, but it’s unclear at this point. According to the source, the supposed star of Assassin’s Creed 3 carries a tomahawk in one of his his unseen hands. I’m very excited for this game, I’ve always been a fan of Assassin’s Creed and have yet to be disappointed, this will be a unique era to be placed in as an assassin if this rumor is true.
Ubisoft had previously announced Assassin’s Creed 3 was due to hit store shelves by the end of October.
