There’s a new Assassin’s Creed teaser site up which includes glimpses of some Arabic writing. We have the translation.

The translation, provided by @Altair3Feb says that the teaser reads “Altair Ibn la Ahad,” (Altair, Son of No One) This is the full name of Altair, which leads to the suspicion that Altair will be returning in the new Assassin’s Creed game!

Allow me to say, OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG. Hopefully Altair will have more of a personality this time around.  Be sure to join in on the #ACReveal at their Facebook page!

Apparently more will be revealed in the May 13th issue of Game Informer.  Those lucky sobs.

If you have any comments or ideas about the new game, let me know in the comments below or on Twitter – @matronedea.


  1. Please don’t let it be Altair or Ezio again! But then… at the end of Brotherhood Ezio is told to ‘find the six’ implying more of his woefully accented English.

    How about return us back to when the Apple was first stolen? A high-tech Creed would be the perfect next step for this franchise (my favourite series of games ever).

  2. Ibn is arabic for “son of.” So it’s not Altair, just his descendent again. Maybe ezio again. probably not though. Probably someone new


      Edit: This was taken from that site in the Behind the Scenes part:
      The name “Altaïr” is a word in the Arabic language, meaning “The Flyer”/”The Flying One/The Flying Eagle”. In interviews, the game’s producer Jade Raymond has stated that in mid-air, Altaïr’s shadow resembles that of an eagle, because his attire includes a point at the front of the hood (to resemble a beak) and slits through the back of the outfit (to resemble tail feathers). The second part of his name, “Ibn-La’Ahad”, means “son of none”, reflecting his mysterious origins. His face, as Desmond’s, is modeled after Canadian model Francisco Randez.

  3. Oh my god that Arabic is terrible. The letters are not connected properly, and it’s written left to right, instead of right to left.
