We knew it was coming, and now we have the formal reveal. Courtesy of Game Informer Ubisoft has announced Assassin's Creed: Revelations, the third entry in the trilogy-within-a-trilogy referred to as the Ezio focused story arc.
Assassin's Creed: Revelations will focus on the three major characters that currently dominate the Assassin's Creed franchise; Alta├»r from Assassin's Creed, Ezio from Assassin's Creed II and Brotherhood, and the ever present modern day Desmond. In Revelations, players will swap between all three characters throughout the story, capping off Ezio's story line in the grand city of Constantinople, as well as continuing Desmond's story from the end of Brotherhood.
As expected, Revelations will come with a slew of new features, including weapons and abilities, as well as an expanded version of the popular multiplayer mode established in Brotherhood.
Assassin's Creed: Revelations is slated for a release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in November of this year. The very first screenshot can be seen below, as well as the Game Informer cover art, and we'll no doubt hear more about this title leading up to E3 2011.
