Ubi boss Yves Guillemot has confirmed that an Assassin’s Creed-related project will release next year.

The exec, speaking in a call after the release of first-half financials today, refused to specifically commit to Assassin’s Creed III in 2011, but did relent to admitting something to do with the IP will hit next year.

“There will be something around Assassin’s,” Guillemot said. “That’s the only thing we can say.”

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood releases tomorrow in the US and Friday in Europe.

The series is a huge seller for Ubisoft, with the original and last year’s sequel having now sold more than 19 million units between them.

Brotherhood’s pre-orders are confirmed as being the highest attained by an Assassin’s game so far.

Ubisoft confirmed in its fiscal release today that the next instalments of two of its other major IPs, Driver and Ghost Recon, had been pushed into the next financial year, which begins in April 2011.

Thanks, Kotaku.

    Stop it Ubi.

    You’re pulling an Activision and over saturating your brand.

    I’ve given you the benefit of the doubt with Brotherhood. I’m not keen on another game featuring the same time period and character… but the game looks cool… I don’t think I could do the same with another AC game next year.

    They’re pulling an Activision? Ubi are the masters of running brands into the ground, always have been , probably always will be. They’re being themselves.

    I’d like to see Assassins Creed III feature a female lead, who photographs her targets… Has a pig for a partner… Set on another world maybe :D

    Read: We will rinse this IP until people are sick of it.

    I love the fact that CoD comes out every year, the same with AC…the overall story in AC is excellent, as long has they keep the quality and keep improving year after year..I’m fine with it.

    CoD, and now AC help keep the Holiday sales up year after year on next gen platforms..FACT..these games do big numbers year after year.

    Stop BITCHING about sequels, if you don’t want them, don’t buy them, and buy Enslaved instead.

    LOL…Enslaved…hahaha!

    No one knows what it will be…have you seen the Ubi Workshop animated feature? Or the comic AC: The Fall?

    He said “something around assassins”…he didn’t say “another game”

    Y’all need to lighten up.

    @tezzer1985

    CoD doesn’t ‘keep holiday sales up’.. it monopolises them.

    If Call of Duty didn’t exist other titles would have a much better chance of succeeding in the holiday period… Heck, maybe even Enslaved would have sold?

    He could be referring to the 3DS game, Lost Legacy. Or a Facebook app, even.

    I don’t think we’ll see ACIII until 2012. No doubt Ubisoft will ply us with some paid DLC for Brotherhood, but personally I see a continuation of the 2008 PoP reboot filling next year’s November slot.

    If anyone want to ask Gabriel Graziani (Ubisoft Montreal) anything about Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, you can do so now for a couple of hours, at the Norwegian games website gamer.no:

    I have used google translate on it for your convenience:

    Just check back in a couple of hours to see if your question has been answered. :)
