Has the Assassin's Creed III Setting Been Revealed (Update: Box Art Revealed)

Despite lukewarm reception to the most recent Assassin’s Creed title (Revelations), it’s safe to say we’re all excited for Assassin’s Creed III, and thanks to Best Buy it would appear that we’ve gotten a sneaky look at the lead character a bit earlier than Ubisoft might have planned.

There’s been plenty of rumours about the third instalment of Assassin’s Creed taking place during the American Revolution, and it’s safe to say that the image we have here lends credence to these rumours. There are further rumours that GameInformer may have gotten the exclusive reveal.

What do you think of this news? Are you excited to play as this particular Assassin? Let us know in the comments below.

UPDATE: This is pretty much confirmed now as the box-art has been revealed. Click it to see it full sized.

    While I would have preferred a Victorian London setting, I’m actually surprised at how good this new Assassin looks (if this is indeed the new character’s design, and it’s quite likely that it is).

    Haven’t even played the single player of Revelations yet, but I already want this “true” sequel 🙂

      Whaat, Victorian London would be *amazing*!

        I know, it would be freakin’ brilliant. Traversing the roofs of grimy London would be excellent – Then there’s the rise of steam technology, plus you could throw in Jack The Ripper and other gruesome characters of the period.

        Still, the setting they have here could also be a great one, and it would be interesting to see how and why the Assassin order makes it’s way to America.
