Updated / Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood real, information next week

Update: The teasing has begun

Original story: Domain registrations, mysterious Facebook messages and email images have indeed led to the reveal of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood.

A GameStop placeholder art sent to Kotaku has brought the title out of the shadows, since also confirmed by Ubisoft.

“Ubisoft confirms the authenticity of this image,” a rep for the company said, “and will provide more information next week.”

The placeholder image makes mention of the previously revealed ‘narratively justified’ multiplayer component and says the game’s out in ‘fall 2010’.

More next week, then.
