Assassin’s Creed Victory coming in 2015, set in Victorian England


Ubisoft isn’t letting the poor critical and fan reception of Assassin’s Creed Unity slow them down. Kotaku has leaked details for next year’s Assassin’s Creed title.

The game is reportedly coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC only. It will be set during 19th century, Victorian England. It will be called Assassin’s Creed Victory. Get it, Victory? As in for Victorian?

Apparently Ubisoft isn’t planning on making two games next year in the franchise, so no more Wii U, PS3 or Xbox 360 releases. It would appear that in 2015, Ubisoft plans to drop support, at least mostly, for last-gen consoles like the PS3 and 360. And they’ll remain quiet on the Wii U too sadly.

Ubisoft released this statement about the leak and they didn’t send this message to Kotaku, possibly out of anger:

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 game will be made by Ubisoft Quebec, not Ubisoft Montreal like with Unity. Further, Ubisoft Quebec will be the main developer. Unity may have suffered some of its bugs due to not only being developed by Montreal but by several other studios. Ubisoft Quebec most recently made Assassin’s Creed IV: Freedom Cry. As always, Assassin’s Creed Victory is expected to be released next fall.

What do you think about this news? Think Ubisoft can redeem themselves next year?
