Ezio Goes To Rome In The Next Assassin's Creed

During its third quarter financial conference call, Ubisoft revealed that the next Assassin's Creed adventure would see Ezio revisiting Rome, taking the fight to the Templar, when he's not busy taking out his friends online.

While we're still not sure how the online multiplayer will work in the next Assassin's Creed, but we do have news of a new location in the game. Our favorite Italian Renaissance assassin will be traveling to Rome in the new title, with an Ubisoft representative revealing Ezio's plans to "strike directly at the heart of the Templar Order."

So far the Assassin's Creed series has mainly dealt with the assassins reacting to the Templar's actions. Perhaps now is the time to act?

The spokesperson also mentioned the multiplayer aspect once again, not delivering any real details, but stressing the importance Ubi is laying on the multiplayer side of the title.

Does this quick follow-up to Assassin's Creed 2 mean that the franchise is going annual? "We can't comment on that yet," said CEO Yves Guillemot, "We are going to come very often (to) that franchise."
