Assassin's Creed III Cover Art And Speculation

So in recent news, the Assassin's III cover has been revealed and the art work for the April cover of Game Informer does look impressive. You can take a look at the article here:

I admit I have conflicting feelings on this. On the one hand, I'm not sure how I feel about it being set in the Revolutionary War period because I loved the game play of Italy and Constantinople. I'm also not sure how this particular time period would play out, it could be great or it could be unsatisfying and disappointing. On the other hand, I find myself excited by the cover art because it's interesting and makes me curious about what kind of character this protagonist could be and what the story for Assassin's Creed III would be like. I find myself wanting to know more about the game and about what the cover art means and could promise for the next installment of Assassin's Creed. It seems my excitement is outweighing my doubts and I am finding myself wishing the game was out now so I could play it.
 What really interests me are the elements to this new character i.e. the weapons, and the clothing that hints at Native American influences. That could be a potentially fantastic and great character to play and could fit in with the Revolutionary War background because there could be other areas to explore such as France and England as well as early America. It opens up paths to endless possibilities for the game which in itself is quite exciting.
In the meantime, we'll just have to enjoy the art work and speculate among ourselves until Ubisoft reveals the full details on March 5, 2012. The release date for Assassin's Creed III is scheduled for October 30, 2012.
