A message appearing briefly on the Assassin's Creed Facebook page lead NeoGAF users to a Flash file urging fans to "Spread the Word" to reveal an exclusive look at the next Assassin's Creed game, and lurking within the Flash file was this logo. What is Assassin's Creed: Revelations?
The Facebook message appeared for only a moment, but long enough for Kotaku reader Nicolas to have it captured in his feed program. "Assassins, 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!"
The link accompanying the message delivered NeoGAF members to a Flash page where they could send a message via email, Twitter, or Facebook, along with an activity monitor to track the promotion's progress.
Further analysis discovered that the Arabic writing appearing in the flickering video atop the Flash page read "Altair Ibn La Ahd" backwards, or "Altair, Son of No One".
Is this a new console version of Assassin's Creed starring the first game's protagonist? A spin-off for iOS or a handheld system? Is it all a big ruse? According to another image pulled from the Flash file, all will be revealed in the May 13 issue of Game Informer.
We've reached out to Ubisoft for comment, and will update this post should we receive a response. In the meantime, hit up the link below to follow the full saga on NeoGAF.
