Ubisoft's next entry for 2015, following Assassin's Creed Unity, has reportedly been leaked. The leak revealed the game's title as Assassin's Creed Victory and its location setting - Victorian London.
Kotaku like previous times, when it leaked Assassin's Creed Rogue, this time too got its hands on an early leak from "a person familiar with the game."
Assassin's Creed Victory will be based in the Victorian Era with dirty back alleys, stagecoaches and will be rolling out in 2015. Victory reportedly will be releasing for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Victory is the code name for the game since it's based on the Victorian Age. It also revealed that this game will be developed by Ubisoft Quebec instead of Ubisoft Montreal that has always taken the development of the bigger Assassin's Creed titles. However, as is the tradition, all the other Ubisoft studios will also be chipping in on the development aspect.
Previously, Ubisoft Quebec was involved in the development of Assassin's Creed III (The Tyranny of King Washington) and Assassin's Creed IV (Freedom Cry).
The anonymous source also revealed that this title is likely the only title that could be released in 2015 unless it changes its plans.
The report also shows some of the leaked pictures from the new game. It also speculated that Victory might use the Anvil engine that is seen in Unity. It also says that the game could have gambling in a pub, street-racing with carriages as side missions/activities. It also notes that the game could have a new feature - grappling hook. It also speaks about multiple fights on vehicles that are in motion.
Ubisoft has commented on the leak, it sent out statements to various outlets.
"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 said, reported PC Gamer.
