Yea. I know it’s a teaser, but I have to post about it anyway. Ubisoft will be officially unveiling a new Assassin’s Creed game next year. My guess is that it’s the announcement and demo of Assassin’s Creed: Victory. The game is set in Victorian era London where canes were the order of the day. If there’s no sword hidden in that cane I’m going to be sorely disappointed. I also expect a large number of monocles to show up on different characters.
Seriously, though. We know that Victory is the next game in the series and it’s most likely going to be released sometime around the October – early December timeframe. Ubisoft really needs to do some work to erase the sting that was Assassin’s Creed: Unity. The game had issues that persisted for far too long. Ubisoft Montreal has been the lead developer on the series to this point, but it’s rumored that this new game could be developed by Ubisoft Quebec. Will a new development team breathe life into the franchise that it needs? Unity was a step back in many fans eyes after the excitement of AC: IV Black Flag.
There are still two more games in the AC Chronicles series to come out this year, but they would not put too much emphasis on those releases. Those games will be set in India and Russia respectively. It’s going to be a busy year for Assassin’s Creed fans.
