Assassin’s Creed fans don’t start cleaning off your assassin blades just yet as Ubisoft is looking to keep you knee deep in assassinations with the next chapter in the series making it’s presence felt this holiday season. Assassin’s Creed III is coming to your favorite gaming platform on October 30, 2012. Kotaku revealed that the company announced this latest update today during a call with investors, bumping the AC series up from its traditional November release.

According to Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot the game has been in development now for three years with hopes of this new title in the series being the biggest yet for the franchise.

Assassin’s Creed III will feature a new yet unknown assassin at your controls with Ezio de Auditore taking a much deserved rest from his assassin duties.
