Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has revealed that the next Assassin's Creed title will not continue the stories of Connor and Aveline de Grandpré. The game will have an all new hero and time period, and will be developed by a new team. The next game will be a "major leap forward", and is set to be released some time before April 2014. "It is the benefit of multiple teams working on multiple chapters of the product, each getting several years to make their versions of an Assassin's Creed game", Guillemot added.
Additionally Ubisoft have released a new trailer for the upcoming The Tyranny of King Washington downloadable content for Assassin's Creed III, showcasing the unique features it will bring to the game.
Several promotional images have also been released, which may contain some mild spoilers. Take caution.
