While there have been many leaks sneaking out over the past few days, Ubisoft (via their Facebook page) officially shows us that their recently-announced Assassin's Creed III will take place during the American Revolution.
No more details are known about the game, save for its release date (October 30), so there's still plenty more to revealed in the coming months - such as the name of the protagonist into whom Desmond will be Animus'ing and how this ties to Desmond himself, since this is his last entry into the Assassin's Creed series.
There are plenty of options for the game's direction, and there are plenty of red-coated targets to pursue during the American War of Independence. I admit, this one's gotten me a little excited - having lived on the East Coast (almost) my whole life, we'll probably be shanking Templars in places that I've visited frequently.
And that sounds awesome.
Assassin's Creed III is slated for released on October 30 of this year for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
