According to a new leak, the next entry in Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed franchise will take place in 19th Century London. The game is slated for a fall 2015 release, and will take players on an adventure through the Victorian era. At this time, the game is named Assassin’s Creed Victory, and will release next year for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
From what we know so far, Assassin’s Creed Victory is the only game slated for release in the fall of 2015. This means that we will most likely not be seeing a last-gen entry in the franchise as we did this year with Assassin’s Creed Rogue. Ubisoft has officially stated the following about the leak:
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 new Assassin’s Creed setting looks very interesting, and I can’t wait to see the direction that they are taking the franchise in for the next game. For more details on Assassin’s Creed Victory, keep it here on NextGenerationGamer!
