Assassins Creed’s next installment will take place on the streets of London. Kotaku broke the news earlier that the next game will be called Assassins Creed Victory and taking place in 19th Century London.
Next year’s Assassin’s Creed game will take place in London during the 19th century, Kotaku has learned. Farewell, Napoleon; hello, Jack the Ripper?
This new entry in Ubisoft’s annual open-world action series, slated for release in the fall of 2015, will take us through the dirty back alleys and rattling stagecoaches of London during the Victorian era, a historical period that fans have wanted to see in an Assassin’s Creed game for quite some time now. This new Assassin’s Creed game is called or code-named Victory—like Victorian!—and it will be out next year for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, according to a person familiar with the game.
We also hear that this will be the only main Assassin’s Creed next fall—unless something changes, we won’t see two separate entries like we did this year with Unity and Rogue, according to a person familiar with goings-on at the company. Next year, Assassin’s Creed is sticking to current-gen platforms and seemingly leaving the Xbox 360 and PS3 behind.
Ubisoft Also confirmed the news:
“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.”
