Ubisoft announces mysterious Assassin's Creed event

27th February the date for sequel reveal?

Ubisoft is throwing a little Assassin's Creed party on 27th February, to which we're invited (thanks to MCV for letting the cat out of the bag).

We're not sure what it's about, just yet. The cynical angels on our shoulders say "more Assassin's Creed 3 DLC". But the optimistic devils cry "first showing of the new Assassin's Creed" - a project revealed, don't you know, during an earnings call last week.

The new game (currently untitled) features a new character, takes place in a new time period, and is otherwise a complete mystery. We're looking forward to shedding some light. The most recent AC4 rumour suggests that Brazil could be the setting.
