Assassin's Creed III could hit shelves as early as April 2010

Experiencing Assassin’s Creed blues now that you’ve finished the game, unlocked Altair’s armor, found all the glyphs, and have collected all 100 impossible-to-find feathers? Don’t fret, friends. According to Ubisoft’s financial release this morning, Assassin’s Creed III will be released in fiscal year 2011, which begins in April 2010. It was previously thought that this would only be an expansion to Assassin’s Creed II, but Ubisoft has confirmed it is a new title featuring Ezio, and will have an online multiplayer mode.

Ubisoft also states that Assassin’s Creed II has sold over 6 million copies worldwide and are projecting that number to hit 9 million by March of this year.
