RUMOR: Assassin’s Creed III Image Leaks—Set During American Revolution?

Posted on February 29, 2012 AT 07:08pm

THE BUZZ: A very interesting image has hit the internet, which—if true—may hint at the main character and setting of Assassin’s Creed III.

EGM’s TAKE: Coming from Kotaku, this image is claimed to have been snapped by a Best Buy employee from some sort of company news release, one which says that Assassin’s Creed III will be revealed on March 5th.

In this image, we can see three major details: An American flag, the fact that the flag is the original Continental flag (which would tie in to previous rumors of the game being set during the American Revolution), and a main character who has somewhat of a Native American look to him.

Now, obviously, as this image was passed on to Kotaku, we here at EGM cannot speak to the validity of the image. However, March 5th isn’t too far away—so if all of this information is indeed correct, we won’t have long to wait to find out.
