Assassin’s Creed III confirmed to take place during American Revolution

Ubisoft Xbox 360 Playstation 3 PC Adventure Action

Rather than let rumors circulate about their upcoming Assassin’s Creed title and keep their fans guessing, Ubisoft has decided that the best way to announce the setting of Assassin’s Creed III is simply to upload the box art for the upcoming title to Facebook.

As you can see to the right, Assassin’s Creed III will take place during the American Revolution as you can clearly see the British and American soldiers fighting in the background and the old American flag waving as the yet un-named assassin prepares to take an axe to a British soldier. Ubisoft will be releasing more details on Monday so keep an eye out for more information at that time.

    No.

    • I have to agree with u on that one.

      YES!  I’m glad to see a publisher is taking a risk with their game franchise, instead of doing the same thing over and over *cough* Activision *cough*.  Plus, there are not that many games set in this time period, besides Red Dead,  so that is sweet.  
      Tomahawk + Assassin = Awesome!

      In addition, it seems as though Ubisoft will have this series going for quite some time, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see it head in another direction in a later sequel (maybe China, South America, etc.) I’m excited to see where they take it, because since they are risking AC on this environment, it means they will risk it on totally different ones too.  Bring it on Ubisoft!

      Ubisoft releases an AC game every year, so anybody who is panicking about this needs to  realize that this will NOT be the LAST Assassin game ever made and they will have plenty of opportunities to take it different places.
