Assassin's Creed: Revelations leaked, stars Altair?

Ubisoft accidentally leaks May 13 reveal date

Ubisoft has seemingly accidentally confirmed the next Assassin's Creed game, 'Revelations', via its official Facebook page.

For a brief moment last night the official Assassin's Creed Facebook page displayed a link to a mysterious teaser site, along with the message, "The day you have been waiting for has arrived!!! Click the link below to help reveal an exclusive look at the upcoming Assassin's Creed game!"


Naturally the teaser site disappeared as quickly as it turned up, but not before ravenous fans were able to dissect its every last detail, including a logo for Revelations and confirmation of a May 13 reveal in US mag Game Informer.

Most interesting though was the translation of an Arabic message on the briefly-online teaser, which mentioned the name of original Assassin's Creed protagonist, Altair.

Could we be in for yet another spin-off, this time staring the series' original hero? After how well Brotherhood turned out, we're up for it.

Ubisoft first said in an earnings call earlier this year it's planning to release information on the new 'Creed in May.

Asked during an investor call if we'll see a new game during its fiscal year 2011-2012, Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot replied: "There will be something around Assassin's - that's all we can say."
