Ubisoft Quebec Developing Next Assassin's Creed

A post from the other day on the UbiBlog notes that Ubisoft Quebec will be the lead development studio on the next Assassin's Creed game, after having assisted Ubisoft Montreal with prior installments in the stealth/action series (thanks HARDOCP/Joystiq). The article includes details on their investment in a new workspace to support the studio, as well word on how many developers are being recruited for the project. There's not much on the game, though they do draw attention to the studio's bona fides:

Of course, Ubisoft Quebec is no stranger to Assassin’s Creed. They’ve been part of the Ubisoft’s brotherhood of developers since, well… Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood. “Since 2010, our understanding of the franchise has increased each year,” says Nicolas Rioux, Managing Director of Ubisoft Quebec. “We were involved in Brotherhood. We were involved in Revelations. We were involved in Assassin’s Creed III. With AC III we were working on the biggest DLC for the franchise – The Tyranny of King Washington. After that we were also involved with Freedom Cry. We have the confidence of the brand team and also from Ubisoft to take leadership of an upcoming Assassin’s Creed title. The team is ready for the next big step.”
