The biggest rumor floating around the Assassins Creed Universe right now is the possible place setting of the American Civil War. Most of these rumors started from a picture at ubisoft headquarters. While this is still considered a rumor, and people are unsure if it will be set in civil war, or if it will be in the American Revultion. People speculate that it will likely be set in Desmonds past, which helps confirm that we may be looking into an American Assassin. Its very exciting, because games set in unusual time periods helps keep the franchise fresh, and to my knowledge there is only one other Civil War era game out there. I'm psyched for hopefully a new direction in the franchise. To preorder the game, Assassin's Creed III Preorder Now
