Who knows, it’s hard to be certain seeing as there’s no official word from Ubisoft. We will, however, know for certain on 05 March once the publisher has issued their “major announcement” regarding the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

Kotaku has received the above piece of promotional art; it was sent to them by a Best Buy employee as pre-orders for the game are supposedly starting relatively soon. The image shows what could be the protagonist for the next major entry into the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

Judging by what the assassin is wearing, and the old American Continental Flag in the background, the rumours of Assassin’s Creed III being set during the American Revolution are likely to be true. As for the protagonist, it’s now suggested that he’s of Native American descent. While that’s hard to tell by his obscured face, he’s got a tomahawk and bow and arrow so he might be! Not sure how that will fit into the heritage of Desmond Miles, but we’ll know by next week Monday. Hit the jump for a super massive full version of the header image.
