Assassin's Creed 3 in 2011? Ubisoft might just have confirmed it

Speaking toMCVabout the continued success of the franchise, Geoffroy Sardin, Ubisoft's European marketing boss, has confirmed,

"Yes, Yves [Guillemot, Ubisoft CEO] mentioned it last week in our financials %26ndash; and more details will be forthcoming. But what I can say is that next year we will have another big Assassin%26rsquo;s Creed game"

A big Asscreed game? That sounds like a full-size console and PC release to me. And given the current circumstances, my money is currently on an official Assassin's Creed III. With Brotherhood essentially a large-scale spin-off utilising the same assets as ACII, Ubisoft will have had a full two year development time between numbered sequels by late next year, meaning that a brand new sequel (set simultaneously in World War II, feudal Japan and Victorian London, naturally) wouldn't be a huge ask.

So, ACIII in 2011. Welcome prospect, or too soon? Whaddayareckon?
