Next year’s Assassin’s Creed heads to London
According to a leak provided to gaming website Kotaku, 2015’s Assassin’s Creed will be heading to Victorian era London, and will be named Assassin’s Creed Victory (may not be final name).
According to Kotaku, this new Assassin’s Creed title is being developed by Ubisoft Quebec, instead of Ubisoft Montreal who have been the series primary developers since the first Assassin’s Creed. Previous Ubisoft Quebec developed games include The Black Eyed Peas Experience for Wii, My Stop Smoking Coach with Allen Carr for DS, and DLC for previously released Assassin’s Creed games.
The footage of the game provided to Kotaku sounds very similar to previous Assassin’s Creed games, but the idea of having a fight on a moving carriage did grab my attention along with being able to apparently change outfits on the fly via an NPC.
Assassin’s Creed Victory will be available in 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Shortly before writing this article, Ubisoft did release a statement regarding 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.”
It looks like Ubisoft is cementing the plan to make Assassin’s Creed a yearly franchise, which for fans of the franchise is good, but Ubisoft’s latest Assassin’s Cree game, Unity was a mess and clearly rushed out the door. Hopefully the Quebec studio will see where the Montreal studio went wrong with Unity and do not repeat their mistakes.
