Assassin’s Creed Victory Leaked

The next major installment for the Assassin’s Creed franchise has been leaked and will take place in 19th century London, according to Kotaku.

The game’s new apparent title, “Assassin’s Creed Victory” is expected to be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One in the fall of 2015, which follows the series’ annual release pattern.

Victory’s development will be lead by Ubisoft Quebec, which is a change from the usual team at Ubisoft Montreal. Ubisoft gave an official statement on the leak which, if the screenshots weren’t enough, all but confirms the game is real.

“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 leaked video is apparent “Target Gameplay” footage (footage which mimics what the developers envision for final gameplay) and uses the Ubisoft’s internally built game engine – Anvil – also meaning that it is not pre-rendered footage.

The footage shows an assassin climbing a tower to gain a view of the city (no surprises there), followed by a short fly through of the cities alleys, showing potential activities for players such as gambling in pubs. The assassin then accepts a contract to kill a target and is soon after attacked aboard a carriage. After dealing with the attackers, he shortly locates his target in Charing Cross station and climbs to a vantage point where he shows off the newest addition to the Assassin’s Creed arsenal — The Grappling Hook.

Even though the title is a long way off, it looks impressive from a visual standpoint, but considering the woes of Unity’s plethora bugs and glitches, it’s hard to tell how the game will turn out. Hopefully Ubisoft will have learned from their experience in the new technology present in new-gen consoles and have overcome the difficulties in learning these new processes in development.

Kotaku also mentioned that Victory would be the only Assassin’s Creed game to be released next fall, unlike this year’s dual release of Unity and Rogue on both generations of console.
