Ubisoft responds to alleged leak of next 'Assassin's Creed' game
Less than a month after the release of two Assassin’s Creed games, 2015’s entry in Ubisoft’s franchise may already have been revealed.
Gaming site Kotaku reports that they’ve seen a gameplay video detailing the next entry in the series, which is titled or code-named Assassin’s Creed Victory.
According to the site, the new game is set in Victorian-era London and includes advancements in the combat, including a fight sequence set atop moving vehicles. Kotaku also makes mention of a new grappling hook item that would offer the player’s assassin various new ways to navigate the environment.
According to Kotaku’s report, the game is also being produced by Ubisoft’s Quebec studio, as opposed to its Montreal team, which has led development on the previous main Assassin’s Creed games.

The game is allegedly only being built for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and not for the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360.
Ubisoft released this statement in response to questions about the alleged project:
Ubisoft released Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed Rogue on Nov. 11, and has had to deal with lingering technical issues plaguing Unity. Most recently, the publisher apologized to fans for the persistent problems and is continuing work on fixing the game.
While this is not a confirmation or denial of the material Kotaku claims to have seen, the gaming website leaked information about both Unity and Rogue in a similar fashion earlier this year.
