Got any links confirming someone at Ubisoft saying it's the last one?

I should have said, final installment for the Desmond story arc. The world is ending on 12/21/2012 and it's already November in game after all.

Of course, nothing stops them from re-booting the series ... which seems likely. The snippet below is from Wikipedia which talks about both the current story arc, and potential future re-boots.

Assassin's Creed is a flagship product for Ubisoft. There has been much speculation about possible settings of this game. Corey May stated that Assassin's Creed will never take place during World War II.[13] Asked about future of the series, Sébastien Puel from Ubisoft said that "[...] we could do 35 of these [Assassin's Creed games]",[14] while Laurent Detoc from Ubisoft said "we hope to reach Assassin's Creed 10".[15] Alexandre Amacio, game director of Assassin's Creed: Revelations, stated that though Assassin's Creed III is likely to bring the story involving Desmond, who has linked together all of the games so far, to a close, it will not necessarily mean the end of the series. When Assassin's Creed returns, it will be back with a new central character. Amacio said there are "many cycles within the brand – that's the whole point. History is our playground".
