Director of IP development Tommy Francois at Ubisoft calls it "a mistake" to go after companies to get their brands under control, as it's the people who created them that matter.

In Assassin's Creed 3 players will have to deal with the changing of the seasons, as regions will have to deal with the heat of summer and the bitter cold of 1770's Colonial America, UbiSoft has revealed.

The seasons won't be just aesthetic, as the weather will have an affect on gameplay. In the winter, heavy snow and ice will block and open new paths, and bog down movement on the ground. However, since Connor use the trees to speed through the terrain. Connor will have such an advantage in the wildnerness, he will be analogous to a predator stalking and hunting down his prey bogged in snow and ice.
