Ubisoft’s Yves Guillemot has described the new Assassin’s Creed episode, teased by the studio in recent months. In a call to investors, Guillemot has said it takes places after Assassin’s Creed II and sees Ezio pursuing the Templars to Rome.

"In addition to this full new adventure, players will be able to challenge their friends in a very innovative assassination multiplayer."

While the game is a stand-alone addition to the series, it is not Assassin’s Creed III. The game is scheduled for release some time before April 2011.
