But that hasn’t stopped them from launching another AC game for mobile. After nearly a year of soft-launches in various regions, Ubi has finally set forth Assassin’s Creed Identity on the App Store:

Players will able to choose between 4 customizable classes in what Ubi describes as the first action RPG in the franchise. By the looks of it players will be heading to Renaissance Italy in “an open map for you to explore: Santa Croce Area in Firenze, the Colosseum area in Roma etc.”
