Next year’s ‘Assassin’s Creed’ game is entitled ‘Assassin’s Creed Victory’ and will be set in Victorian England.
Just off the cusp of the release of both ‘Assassin’s Creed Unity’ and ‘Assassin’s Creed Rogue’ last month, the newest title in the long running series was made known through a leak published in an article written by Jason Schreier of Kotaku.
In his article, Schreier states that a seven-minute gameplay video of the upcoming title was leaked to their site. According to him, the video was “surprisingly slick and could pass for an E3 presentation, and although it may not represent what the final game looks like, the beginning of the video proclaims that it was produced entirely in Anvil, Ubisoft’s ‘Assassin’s Creed’ engine. ”
Schreier’s article also states that the upcoming game will be developed by Ubisoft Quebec as opposed to longtime franchise development team Ubisoft Montreal. It will feature some franchise firsts in terms of gameplay elements, such as a grappling hook for quick traversing and the ability fight on top of moving vehicles. New UI features will be included as well, like the interface now blending into gameplay.
As of writing, Ubisoft has not made it clear whether or not ‘Assassin’s Creed Victory’ is the official name of the title or if it is simply a code-name. However, Ubisoft has officially commented on the leak in the statement below:
“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.”
‘Assassin’s Creed Victory’ has no announced release date but is most likely expected to be released sometime in Fall 2015 for PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC. It will be the only main-line ‘Assassin’s Creed’ title to be released that year.
