Assassin's Creed tease for May 12 smells like 'Victory'

Ubisoft is ready to jump back into the main Assassin's Creed series, issuing a teaser that further points to a leaked game from late last year.


There are still a lot of questions marks regarding the future of the Assassin's Creed series. Not whether there will be another game, of course, but what that game exactly entails. Ubisoft is ready to reveal the next big Assassin's Creed game, setting a reveal date for this Tuesday, May 12 at 8:30AM PDT.

Ubisoft issued the teaser image below to IGN as the publisher's only hint. The phrases "Strength Through Loyalty," "We force the chains we wear in life," "God save the Queen," and "Rooks," can all be seen.

Of course, all of those hints appear to point to the previously-leaked Assassin's Creed Victory that was briefly out in the wild back in December. This game would see a new Assassin frontman take to the streets of Victorian London. The game would be developed by Ubisoft Quebec, taking over for Ubisoft Montreal.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      I wish they'd make a straight-up pirate game outside of Assassin's Creed. That would be a no-brainer purchase.

        Black Flag was awesome and a stand alone pirate game would be sweet. I still enjoy the Abstergo stuff though so I don't mind.

        Isn't that what Rogue was? I didn't play it.

          It's not. Rogue was an AC game with all the AC stuff you'd expect.

          Rogue is exactly the same game as Black Flag, but set in North America, with snow and stuff. It feels like a cross between AC3 and AC4 in terms of storytelling.

          I had a blast with it because I like the "classic" AC gameplay more than the new stuff they put into Unity, and all the pirate stuff is in place.

          No but it improved on a lot of things over Black Flag.

      They have a tendency to make a turd on the 1st try of a new iteration like AC3 or Unity. Then they nail it the 2nd time(AC2, AC4). If that trend continues Victory could be fantastic.

      I wish they did a full AssCreed China or Japan already, not chronicles, although I liked it.
