The Next Assassin's Creed Game Will Star A New Hero

Ubisoft makes its annual Assassin's Creed announcement
Ubisoft has been making some unpopular revelations today, most notably the announcement that Rayman Legends is no longer a Wii U exclusive and has been pushed all the way back to September.
On a more positive note, Ubisoft has also announced that the Assassin's Creed series will be getting a new game at some point in the next financial year.
Though it's hardly a surprise that a new iteration will be popping up — this will be the fifth game in as many years — there were some interesting details revealed nonetheless. While Assassin's Creed II received a couple of expansion-type games after its release, it seems Assassin's Creed III will not be getting the same treatment as the next game will star a new character, as well as an all-new setting.
Of course we have no idea which platforms the new Assassin's Creed will be playable on, but seeing as Assassin's Creed III was available on all home consoles, it's likely to be coming to the Wii U as well — at least we hope so. It's expected to be out before 31st March 2014, but will most likely be available before Christmas.
The latest DLC pack for Assassin's Creed III was announced recently. The first part of The Tyranny of King Washington will be on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 by 20th February. No date has been given for the Wii U version, but Ubisoft has promised it will make it to Nintendo's system at some point.
