Assassin’s Creed has been one of Ubisoft’s best selling franchises, becoming their fastest selling new IP since 2002, with the game doing well even on the PC despite being leaked early on torrent sites. Thus it is not surprising to hear that the company is “working hard” on a follow-up.

This was revealed in a conference call to analysts, and while no further details were shared, it is being rumored that the game has changed time frame from 1191 to “several hundred years in the future,” most likely, the French Revolution in the 1700s. Additionally, it is also speculated that Ubisoft is aiming for a holiday 2009 launch of the game, but has been no official confirmation yet.
