Assassin's Creed IV has been announced by Ubisoft for release in "fiscal 2014" in its latest investor's conference call.

Ubisoft Chief executive officer Yves Guillemot discussed "an all-new Assassin’s Creed hero" in the call, and the fourth main entry will allegedly focus on a new time period with a new team behind development.

"We are delighted and proud to announce today that in [fiscal 2014], we will introduce an all-new Assassin’s Creed hero,” said Guillemot. "With an all new team and time period. We expect it to be another major leap forward for the franchise. [This] is the benefit of multiple teams working on multiple chapters of the project, each [gets] several years to make their versions of an Assassin’s Creed game."

Guillemot said the publisher would announce more specifics of AC IV in the near future.

Ubisoft's latest release, Assassin's Creed III, has sold 12 million units since releasing late last year. It received a final verdict score of 9.0 in the official MMGN review.

What direction would you like to see the next Assassin's Creed take?

Thank god. I hope this means that they will stop releasing AC games every year and start focusing on quality.
I would like it to be set in Australia.

That would be a crap game.
Victoria-Era London or feudal Japan would be kickass.
Assassin's as ninjas makes perfect sense to me. But then again a lot of people hate that idea for some reason. Probably because of the fact that actual ninjas weren't really assassins.
But what if there was a group of ninjas that actually were assassins, but were so badass that we don't even know about them? [MOG]
yay new hero

Assassins and ninjas are different. Assassins do public executions, blend with public people, they fight for their beliefs and commit suicide when they complete their execution while on hashish while ninjas perform recon, disguises execution in stealth and do it for money working for any side.

Victoria era would be alright but a lot of people are forgetting the story which is Assassins are at war with the Templars.
A modern or future day setting also would be nice.
as long as AC doesn't go feudal japan.
wouldn't mind a modern day take or one set in the not so distant future.
They really need to tidy and change up the gameplay mechanics if I'm to stay interested in this franchise, AC3 was such a cluster**** of different ideas that weren't fully realised that I ended up just rushing through the story to get it over with.
They should expand on the chinese assassin introduced in the short film that came with revelations I reckon or the russian in the encyclopedia

Yet people like this forget that AC games need to follow the main plot to the story.

Assassin's Creed: Embers. Was mainly just to show the finish-off of Ezio's story. But honestly, They'd be stupid not to utilize the opportunity here with the young Chinese(?) girl.
