As one of the many constants in the world of video games, fans can count on the release of a new Assassin’s Creed every fall. Part of that release schedule, however, also includes a big reveal, wherein developer Ubisoft announces an official title, gives some sense of the story, and in the case of a few AC games reveals a new protagonist and setting.
While we still don’t have official confirmation from Ubisoft, an invite that has gone out to select members of the press suggests an Assassin’s Creed announcement will take at the end of this month, on February 27th. No mention of what might be announced — whether this is Assassin’s Creed 4 — just that the event involves Assassin’s Creed.
We were made privy to the event thanks to MCV, who posted a message to their Twitter revealing the date of the event. They are as “in the dark” as we are, but we shouldn’t be for long.

Gamers will remember that it was around this time last year, that Ubisoft unveiled Assassin’s Creed 3. Sure, most of their big revelations — namely the Colonial America setting and Native American protagonist — had been spoiled, but there was still something awe inspiring about that first trailer.
So far, Ubisoft has been able to keep this new game under wraps, but there’s still plenty of time for the beans to be spilt. There’s also a small little PS4 event taking place tomorrow, which could open the door for Ubisoft to announce Assassin’s Creed is heading to next-gen platforms.
As far as Assassin’s Creed 4 is concerned, we expect that Ubisoft will reveal a new protagonist and a new setting, or at least that’s what Yves Guillemot has led us to believe. Connor is done, and now it’s time for a new character to takeover in this pivotal moment in the franchise.
Stick tuned for more details about the Assassin’s Creed event, and make sure to check back here on February 27th to read what exactly Ubisoft revealed.
What do you hope Ubisoft announces at the end of this month? Where would you like to see the Assassin’s Creed franchise head next?
