More Assassin's Creed Coming in 2011

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood just released this past month and already Ubisoft is talking about more Assassin's Creed coming at the end of 2011.
News just broke of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood selling over one million copies across Europe during its first week on sale, making it Ubisoft's best-selling game ever. When a game performs that well, especially when the game releases in the same window as a Call of Duty game, then you have yourself a cash cow. Ubisoft knows this better than anyone else, which is why they're already planning on milking the franchise for all its worth by releasing yet another Assassin's Creed in 2011.
While speaking with MVCUK about the recent sales milestone, Ubisoft chief of marketing, Geoffrey Sardin, confirmed a new Assassin's Creed for 2011:
“Yes, Yves [Guillemot, Ubisoft CEO] mentioned it last week in our financials – and more details will be forthcoming,”The last two Assassin's Creed titles took place in Renaissance Italy, while the first took place in the Holy Land. Will the next Assassin's Creed find our stealthy hero in yet another location? Sardin says its a strong possibility:
"If you've read the comic books you will see that we took Assassin's Creed to the USSR, or Caesar's Rome – that's a good example of what we could do in the coming years in the next video games,"Are you ready for even more Assassin's Creed? Doesn't matter, it's coming anyway.
