The LinkedIn profiles of three developers associated with Ubisoft Montreal have revealed that the freshly announced Assassin’s Creed 4 will be released in 2013. For a brief time last night, the LinkedIn profiles of an audio artist, UI artist, and dev tester were updated to include “Assassin’s Creed 4” as projects they had worked on. The playtester’s profile allegedly dated the release for 2013. The information was quickly reverted to “unannounced game”, but not before being captured by the quick-witted folk at videogamer.com.
The release date falls within Ubisoft’s financial year ’14, which runs from April 1 2013 to March 31 2014. This information, in conjunction with the information on the LinkedIn profiles above, suggests that this title will be arriving as soon as Autumn (that’s Fall, for you Northerners), in keeping with past release schedules.
Assassin’s Creed 4 may be revealed as soon as the 27th of February, if the leaks posted on VGLeaks is to be believed. According to that information, Ubisoft is due to host an event on the 27th, in which it will announce the details of their new project.
We’ll definitely know more soon, and possibly even tomorrow. We shall keep you posted.
