    Even though Assassin's Creed Unity was a tad disappointing (and broken), don't expect the series to slow down. Kotaku reports next year's game, set in Victorian London, will be called Assassin's Creed Victory.

    The publication watched a lengthy target video for Assassin's Creed Victory, apparently in development at Ubisoft Quebec.

    If you want some hope for Assassin's Creed Victory, consider this. Ubisoft Quebec developed the rather remarkable Freedom Cry add-on for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Freedom Cry tried some interesting ideas within the existing Assassin's Creed structure. If the same team was given more time and resources, maybe they can clean things up?

    It's possible, sure. But at this moment, I couldn't be less interested in a new Assassin's Creed game.

    Doesn't seem awfully quick to me. The initial Black Flag "leak" happened in a similar way.

    I mean, ok. A new Assassins Creed for next fall was a foregone conclusion. So close on the heels of Unity AND Rogue, how can anybody be expected to get excited for this already.

    FINALLY

    Been asking for Victorian London since ass creed 2.

    The setting alone makes this better than unity, even if it's just as broken

    Whatever, I'll buy it day one, and enjoy running around in a beautifully rendered city in an awesome time period just like I did with Unity. Screw the haters.

    P.S. Played Unity on PC, never had a single problem. Ran a rock solid 60 on an old i5 and GTX 780 at 1080p on a combo of High/Ultra settings.

    I swear that if they don't let me use the hidden blade(s) as my combat weapon I'm going to be done with the series. That was unity's biggest flaw

    I'm terribly wary of getting excited for an AC game again. I was fully aboard the hype train for Unity and got fucked, to put it bluntly.

    Well, at least the English accents won't sound out of place now.

    Also, I'm calling it: Sherlock Holmes / Arthur Conan Doyle is going to be in this game.

    I am hoping a couple of things here other than it being a good game that isn't broken. Victorian era being multiple decades, there is a whole lot of history that could be touched upon. I'm hoping its good so we can return to it multiple times ala Ezio. Wars go from Napoleonic style fighting to proto WWI, wood ships with sails to steam powered ironclads. Almost the entirety of the American Wild West is covered in that time. Hell America goes from an East Coast former colony to a continent spanning world power in that time all while nearly destroying itself. It's a pretty interesting time to cover anyways and I HOPE we get more than chasing Jack the Ripper in fog shrouded alleys.

    But honestly hope they took those complaints about Unity and make the new main character a female.

    Given that I'm sure this was "leaked" and not actually leaked, I find it hilarious that this is Ubisoft's PR response to the current shitshow around this series. How in the hell do they think that people will have a positive reaction to them starting the hype train for their new game while the current game is still on fire and terrible.

    I know this was leaked but the kotaku article made it sound like it was a press showing and I find it puzzling that Ubisoft would start this early showing of the next game in the franchise. Unity had just been released and slaughtered and it sounds like Ubisoft will never learn from their mistakes. "I guess we made burning garbage... oh well let's start promoting the sequel!". They just keep the train rolling with such a high speed that they will never really be able to fix the series issues or renew anything.

    What a boring setting. I get Europe is where these games make the most money but have a little sympathy for the rest of the world who dont give a shit about London or Paris and go to Egypt or really anywhere in Asia.

    I'm sure it took a lot of effort for them to finally leave the 18th century after literally the last 4 games took place there so I guess that's progress.

    I haven't played an AC game since Brotherhood and if that screenshot is supposed to get me excited it failed horribly. Victorian London could be a cool setting but if the game is just the same old tower climbing and synchronising to reveal the next area then, without any significant changes or innovations, it really isn't grabbing my interest.

    Horribly sloppy article.

    "The publication watched a lengthy target video for Assassin's Creed Unity, apparently in development at Ubisoft Quebec." - Don't you mean Victory?

    "If you some hope for Assassin's Creed Victory, consider this." - This makes no sense.
