Ubisoft has revealed that the newest entry in the Assassin’s Creed series may already have a title, and will be available this holiday season. But that’s all the company is willing to say at the moment.
While the ominous reveal trailer released by Ubisoft will have us wait until May 12 for more details about the next Assassin’s Creed, a report from the website Polygon may have already provided them.
According to marketing material found by the website, the next Assassin’s Creed game will be called Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, and not Victory as previous rumors suggested. The tagline, also visible in the trailer, is a rally cry stating that “Oppression Has To End”.
The developers are reportedly bringing a new level of detail to the series, claiming that the setting of London in the midst of the Industrial Revolution will be a “game world they’ll have to see to believe.” A bold statement from any other developer, but here it’s a welcome sign of the epic storytelling that is to come.
In a well received effort, fans who pre-order the game will receive a silver Shilling necklace, similar to the one worn by the game’s protagonist, Jacob Frye.
The official U.S. site has been updated to feature a promotional image of intricately designed brass knuckles atop an aged wooden table. Carvings such as “Strength through loyalty”, “Rook” and “Chains we wear in life” can be seen on the table, as well as an ominous “God Save the Queen” which doesn’t bode well for the royal family.
Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate will be officially revealed on May 12, so come back then to learn more.
