Although Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood just released back on November 16th, Ubisoft has already revealed plans for a new game in the series (most likely Assassin’s Creed III) for release next year, despite an earlier statement made by Ubisoft that they would be taking a break from the series in 2011.
A few days ago, Ubisoft released a survey with 15 questions asking players what they would want to see in the next Assassin’s Creed. While it is unlikely that Ubisoft will base all of their decisions for the game based on the results of the survey, the list certainly includes many things that Ubisoft will likely consider.
You can check out the full survey after the jump.

Ubisoft just recently released their first half of 2010-2011 financials, and they talked a lot about money. And while I know you’re all dying to hear how much money Ubisoft made, I’m going to skip to the juicy stuff – the actual video game information.
First up is that, unfortunately, two titles have been delayed. Driver: San Francisco has been pushed to July 2011 and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier was pushed back to May 2011, moving both titles to the 2012 fiscal year. Although whether or not that is unfortunate in my opinion is based on the reason of why the titles were delayed. If they were delayed to improve the quality of the games, I’m 100% for it.
Also hard to determine if it is fortunate or unfortunate is the announcement of a new Assassin’s Creed title planned for 2011. Ubisoft’s Jean-Francois Boivin said that the title needed to take a break for a breath of fresh air in 2011. It seems the higher-ups disagree as there is another title on the way, effectively putting it in the Call of Duty position of yearly releases.

Details on the next Assassin’s Creed has been a bit scarce, but so far we do know that the title will feature online multiplayer and that Ezio will be returning.
Now Ubisoft has revealed that Ezio will be heaing to Rome with intent to “strike directly at the heart of the Templar Order.”
Ubisoft stayed relatively quiet about the rest of the game, but they did stress that the multiplayer aspect is very important to them.

Ubisoft was listing off franchises to expect in the fisicial year of 2010 and one of the titles on the list was “a new episode of Assassin’s Creed, which will be the first in the series to have an online multiplayer mode.”
This stand alone title will feature Assassin’s Creed II’s protagonist Ezio. Other then that and the online multiplayer feature, the title remains under wraps for now.
In the meantime you can look at this old Assassin’s Creed II screenshot.
