Despite the ongoing issues with Assassin’s Creed: Unity, it seems Ubisoft are already hard at work on next year’s instalment, which has just been leaked to the world – Assassin’s Creed: Victory is coming and it’s set in Victorian London.
The setting will come as a great surprise to many fans of the series, who have been clamouring for the particular setting for some time now. Slated for a 2015 autumn release, Assassin’s Creed: Victory will see your character roam the dark, gritty streets of Victorian London. Kotaku witnessed the footage and gave us some awesome-looking images of a thoroughly industrial London setting.

The game is already looking pretty sharp, and here’s hoping Ubisoft avoid the technical issues that have plagued the release of Unity.
Assassin’s Creed: Victory is set for current gen consoles and PC only – there’s currently no talk of a game coming to PS3 and Xbox 360. The gameplay appears to run on the same graphics engine as Unity and also introduces a grappling hook.
Ubisoft released a statement regarding the leak, confirming everything, including the fact that it will be the first full Assassin’s Creed game developed by Ubisoft Quebec.
“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.”
Thanks again, Kotaku!
