Assasin's Creed 3 to be set in a crazy time period?

A big rumour circulating the internet this morning is the suggestion that the third Asassin's Creed game will be set in a pretty modern time scale (all things considered) of during the American Revolution. Even though it's probably internet scuttlebutt, the idea of Assasin's Creed being set in a critical time period of American History. There's ample room for plot and skull duggery in that period as well.

As with the prior sequel, Creed 3 will need to have a new main character to engage and enrage - George Washington is a candidate perhaps? A secret aide whose mission is to to prevent the signing of a certain Treaty? Mel Gibson? Nicholas Cage? Who knows.

What do you think of this idea? Could Assassin's Creed work being set in America? There's been four games set in 'the olden day's' is it time for Creed to grow up like the Fable series has?
