The next Assassin's Creed game - which is being teased right now - is likely to be "another slimline Brotherhood-style offering", Xbox World 360 says in its latest mag.
In the E3 rumour section of its latest issue - which goes on sale properly on May 10 - XBW says Assassin's Creed 'Revelations' is "unlikely" to be the full AC3 we've been waiting on - but suggests that game is also secretly in the works.
"A full-blown threequel is in the works, but the next AC is unlikely to be that," it says. "If they want it to hit this side of Christmas, this'll likely be another slimline Brotherhood-style offering."
Ubisoft's latest Assassin's Creed teaser trailer makes reference to the date June 24, 1459 - the same rough time period as the last two Assassin's Creed games, which would back XBW's claims we could be set for another ACII spin-off.
The footage also teases Istanbul, Turkey as a possible setting for the game. See it for yourself here.
The next Assassin's Creed is due to be formally revealed in US retail mag Game Informer next week.
