During Ubisoft's third-quarter earnings call, CEO Yves Guillemot has confirmed that the next instalment in the successful Assassin's Creed franchise will be coming in the company's 2014 fiscal year.

Ubisoft's fiscal year runs from April 1 2013 through March 31st 2014, so it's possible we'll see a holiday season launch like the last few.

Guillimot's comments also indicate we won't be continuing on with the Native American Connor, but rather a whole new hero in what we presume will be a full Assassin's Creed 4, as opposed to the faffing around with Ezio and subtitles we saw with the Creed 2 saga (via Polygon):
"We are delighted and proud to announce today that in financial year '14, we will introduce an all-new Assassin's Creed hero, within an all new team and time period, and we expect it to be another major leap forward for the franchise," said Guillemot. "It is the benefit of multiple teams working on multiple chapters of the product, each getting several years to make their versions of an Assassin's Creed game."

Guillemot added Ubisoft will share more details on the next Assassin's Creed title "very soon."
There's no indication of platforms, but given Ubi's tendency to get behind new console launches, we'd be surprised if it appeared on any less than the full gamut of PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, as well as Microsoft and Sony's next generation devices.
