New Assassin’s Creed game details leaked

Xbox One

UK gaming site Kotaku yesterday revealed a leak of the next in the Assassin’s Creed series, due to hit consoles in the Autumn of 2015.

Reportedly set in Victorian London and currently code-named Victory, the game is being lead developed by Ubisoft’s Quebec studio, not Ubisoft Montreal who have been responsible for the past Assassins since 2007, and has been in development for the past few years.

In response to the article on the leak, Ubisoft released a statement to PC Gamer all but confirming the game’s setting and current codename.

So it looks like we’ll be free-running through the back alleys and smoky avenues of Victorian London in order to find and stealthily kill our quarry this time. The other main bit of news on this next Assassin’s Creed? It’s not currently planned for the older gen console. It’s Xbox One (and PS4), only.

Time to upgrade now then, if, like me, you’re still clinging on to the older console.

I don’t normally suggest you nipping over to other sites, but from the article and the photos Kotaku have, this is already looking stunning.
