Ubisoft main man Yves Guillemot has revealed the release date for the next major instalment in the Assassin’s Creed IP. The story arc starring Desmond Miles will be concluded on 30 October 2012, but information regarding the historical setting of this next major game remains elusive. The current favourite theory is that Assassin’s Creed III will be set during the American Revolution.

Guillemot revealed this information during an investor call; he also added that the team behind Assassin’s Creed III has been working on the title for three years. Ubisoft plans to put their full marketing weight behind this upcoming game, and Guillemot believes it will be the biggest launch in the publisher’s history.

Assassin’s Creed III will be out on PC (probably delayed by a few weeks and with horrific DRM), PlayStation 3, Wii U and Xbox 360.
