On Friday, Ubisoft officially acknowledged the next installment of the “Assassin’s Creed” franchise. Titled “Assassin’s Creed Unity,” the game is set in France, presumably during the French Revolution of the late 1700s. At this time, there are not many details surrounding the game since the folks at Ubisoft really were not quite ready to reveal its existence. In the press release sent to media outlets everywhere, the company states:
“We have been working on the new ‘Assassin’s Creed’ for more than three years, and wanted to find the perfect time to give you an early taste of the game. Apparently though, the Templar Order was hungry to know more right now. To this, we say ‘Qu’ils man gent de la brioche!’ (‘Let them eat cake!’). […] Stay tuned - we’ll have many more exciting details for you in the future.”
The explanation alludes to a number of shared details and images leaked earlier last week, published by Kotaku and depicting the new game’s protagonist wandering the streets of Paris. To both complement and validate the in-game screenshots, Ubisoft published a teaser trailer to whet the palate of next-generation assassins.
