Next year’s main Assassin’s Creed game will be set in 19th century London, according to a report from Kotaku which contains purported screenshots of the game and a description of target gameplay video. Titled Assassin’s Creed Victory, the game is reportedly in development at Ubisoft’s Quebec studio.
Kotaku describes gameplay scenarios that sound similar to past Assassin’s Creed games, with some era-appropriate tweaks: The game’s protagonist is described as fighting atop moving train cars and horse-driven buggies, and using a new grappling hook for traversal.
According to the report, Victory is the main entry in the franchise destined for consoles and PC next year; Ubisoft also has a spin-off called Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China and a Windows PC port of Assassin’s Creed Rogue coming in 2015. Victory is reportedly bound for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
