Are we due for another Assassin's Creed game already? Apparently so. A teaser video for the next title in the series, Assassin's Creed Unity, has appeared in Ubisoft's YouTube feed. The video only has 40 seconds of actual in-game footage, but what little is there looks pretty stunning—especially the huge crowd at the end:
As far as I can tell, Assassin's Creed Unity will be set in Paris during the French Revolution. (The guillotine and Notre Dame cathedral are pretty strong hints.) Ubisoft says the game has been in development for "more than three years," which would explain the impressive attention to detail and the "holiday 2014" release time frame.
The logos on the last frame suggest we'll see a release on the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Ubisoft planned a simultaneous release for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag last year, but it wound up postponing the PC version by a few weeks. Here's hoping the same won't happen this time.
