The next big Assassin’s Creed title is set in London during the Victorian era, according to a new report from Kotaku. The report, citing people familiar with the matter, mentions it will be known as or code-named Victory, and is slated to launch for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC next year.
The game is cooked up by Ubisoft’s Quebec studio, not their Montreal office which is behind the most popular Assassin’s Creed titles since 2007. The developer announced this news earlier in summer, and this is believed to be the only Assassin’s Creed game to come out in 2015.
The folks at Kotaku viewed a seven-minute “target gameplay footage” video which demonstrates what the Ubisoft development team expects from the game, and could pass as an E3 presentation. The video shows the game utilizes Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed engine Anvil, which is apparently the same version used in Unity. They also posted some alleged screenshots of the game which also look promising, but let’s wait and see what Ubisoft has in store for Assassin’s Creed fans.
Ubisoft also issued a statement to PCGamer regarding the huge leak and said,
“It is always unfortunate when internal assets, not intended for public consumption, are leaked. And, while we certainly welcome anticipation for all of our upcoming titles, we’re disappointed for our fans, and our development team, that this conceptual asset is now public. The team in our Quebec studio has been hard at work on the particular game in question for the past few years, and we’re excited to officially unveil what the studio has been working on at a later date. In the meantime, our number one priority is enhancing the experience of Assassin’s Creed Unity for players.”
The images do look promising, but it’s still an year away. Anyone excited about the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Victory?Further reading: Assassin's Creed, Microsoft, Ubisoft, Xbox One
