Well it's all kicking off now. After a Best Buy employee contacted Kotaku with what may well be promotional art for the next Assassin's Creed game, it would appear that Game Informer have accidentally leaked a little visual tidbit of their own.
The image features an assassin in the classic "hooded passport photo" pose, as well as a tableau depicting an assassin in battle alongside George Washington, a period American flag fluttering in the background.
Official game art from Ubisoft, or Game Informer's own 'Shop work? We don't know, but it certainly lends a little more credence to the burgeoning rumour that Assassin's Creed III will take the American Revolution as its setting. [via NeoGAF]
