Ubisoft has revealed a new Assassin's Creed game to investors during its financial year 2012-2013 third quarter earnings call. The game stars a new character, takes place in a new time period, and is due out in the publisher's financial 2014 - no earlier than 1st April 2013, and no later than 31st March 2014.

As reported by CVG, the game will probably go public at E3 this year, and is being developed by several of Ubisoft's studios. More as we get it.

There's a rumour doing the rounds that Assassin's Creed 4 is set in Brazil. Thoughts?
