After a barrage of strange videos, Ubisoft has fully blown the lead off Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, release also the first screenshot of the game.

Here’s the press release:

Today, Ubisoft announced the development of Assassin’s Creed Revelations, the fourth installment in the critically acclaimed and immensely popular video game franchise. Developed and led by Ubisoft Montreal with the support and expertise of Ubisoft studios Annecy, Massive Entertainment, Quebec, Singapore and Bucharest, Assassin’s Creed Revelations presents the most immersive experience available in the series to date and the culmination of Ezio’s adventure. The game is set to release on the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC this November.

Initially launched in 2007, the first three Assassin’s Creed games have sold more than 28 million units worldwide, and the franchise is now established as one of the best-selling series on next generation consoles. Recognized for having some of the richest, most engrossing storytelling in the industry, Assassin’s Creed has transcended video games, branching out into other entertainment experiences such as comic books, Facebook, novels, short films and more.

In Assassin’s Creed Revelations, master assassin Ezio Auditore walks in the footsteps of his legendary mentor, Alta├»r, on a journey of discovery and revelation. It is a perilous path – one that will take Ezio to Constantinople, the heart of the Ottoman Empire, where a growing army of Templars threatens to destabilize the region.

In addition to Ezio’s award-winning story, the acclaimed online multiplayer experience returns, refined and expanded, with more modes, more maps and more characters that allow players to test their assassin skills against others from around the world. The latest chapter in the Assassin’s Creed saga also includes revolutionary gameplay, allowing players to manipulate the construct of Desmond’s memories and the Animus to decipher the mysteries of his past and gain insight into the future.

“Delivering the final chapter of the Ezio trilogy is an important milestone in the Assassin’s Creed franchise for us and for our fans,” said Alexandre Amancio, Creative Director at Ubisoft Montreal. “Assassin’s Creed Revelations includes lots of new features and some significant surprises. We can’t wait to show our fans what we have in store at E3 this year.”

As noted in this press release, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations will come available in November for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

    knowing ubi this will change come october, if not it will be the first time ubi has released a game simultaneously this gen!
    disappointed its not AC3, im dying to find out what minerva was going on about at the end of AC2, i really want to play as desmond and finally find the temples!
    oh well, hopefully this time we have flashbacks showing what happened to altiar from the end of AC1 to his death.
    i got a funny feeling will play as subject 13 in a future game, after finishing the truth puzzles and watching the ending theres a few hints in there hinting he will be showing up sooner or later.
    tis why everyone loves this game so much, its so mysterious!
