Ubisoft has confirmed that Assassin’s Creed III will release on October 30 this year, following earlier confirmation that Far Cry 3 will release on September 6.

The date was given in a financial call to investors today. Details regarding the game are minute at this point, but it will star a new protagonist. Various locations have been rumored over recent months, with Egypt, China, and America during the Revolutionary period the running favorites. The French Revolution has also been mentioned.

Ubisoft also announced during its call to investors today that 7 million copies of Assassin’s Creed: Revelations shopped during the company’s Q3 ending December 31.

The new comes after a heated day for Ubisoft, in which a trailer emerged this morning confirming a September 6 release for Far Cry 3.

The announcement of the title’s launch was supposed to arrive tomorrow afternoon, Europe time. Ubisoft responded to the leak by moving the official release of the cinematic footage forward to today.

Far Cry 3 will release on PC, PS3 and 360.

The Assassin’s Creed game follows last year’s Revelations, which rounded off Ezio Auditore’s plot arc.
