We knew another Assassin's Creed title was in the works, but we had very few details on the title. Speaking during its Q3 financial conference call, Ubisoft has revealed some titbits of information, including a location you'll visit in the game.

According to Ubisoft, Ezio, star of Assassin's Creed 2, will return to Rome, a location only briefly visited in the second game.

"This time, [Ezio] will strike directly against the templar's order in Rome," said Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot.

It sounds as if we should expect frequent entries in the Assassin's Creed series, with Guillemot stating that the publisher is "going to come very often (to) that franchise". With the second game now confirmed to have shipped over 8 million units since its November 2008 release, will the franchise now be an annual event?

Multiplayer was also mentioned, although no details were given.

Daaaamn, I was really hopipng we'd get to play as some of the other assassins who are remembered within the game - an AC game in ancient Egypt would be awesome...

They will need new gameplay dynamics after the next one, or its curtians.

It will go on, and on, and on, till they ruin it.

And this is the end of Assassins Creed as we know it. With poor reviews for the mediocre DLC we can see that Ubisoft's ambitions
for profit far out weigh the development of the IP.

Assassins Creed could span onto 4 games? Will be interesting to see what impact this does if Ezio 'strikes' the heart of the templars order, to the present day.

Present day Assassins Creed will be brilliant but I really cannot see it happening.
