Assassin’s Creed V to Take Place in Russia?


Well, it’s about that time of year again.

The last few Assassin’s Creed games have been announced in March with details leaking out before their reveal. Last year Black Flag was outed by sources at Kotaku. So far this year, no big leaks have happened yet, but the rumor mill has ramped up in the past few days with titles like Assassin’s Creed V: Great Fall being thrown around. There was an image and a audio clip on the official forums for Assassin’s Creed posted for that yesterday, but was quickly debunked by another user.

Today the official channel for Assassin’s Creed: Initiates has been steathfully posting some possible teasers for the next Assassin’s Creed. The account posted two separate Tweets with hexadecimal that can be translated into text with the first entry saying “north” and the second entry saying “east”. Thanks to some users over at NeoGAF, we have a good idea of where the coordinates in the Tweets are located in the real world.

The first Tweet points to a random location near the border of Alberta and Saskatchewan in Canada. Could this be the location for the modern day setting? In Black Flag the modern day setting was in Montreal Quebec, which is the city in Canada where one of Ubisoft’s studios are based. The coordinates will be posted below so you can confirm it for yourself.

NEOGAF: (4e6f727468) = 110.646 – 55.762667

4e6f727468 means North. Is this location for modern day?


The second tweet points to a location near Moscow, Russia.

NEOGAF: (45617374) = 74.795917 – 37.579250

45617374 means East

And if i am right this is final location https://www.google.com/maps/place/Ba…5ca0e66396f068


The first location could be the location of the present day part of Assassin’s Creed while Russia has the focus of the historical aspect of the game.

Adding more credibility to the locations listed above, a possible press release was posted on Tumblr and spotted by a Reddit user this afternoon. The press release makes mention of the Industrial Revolution, which could very well tie in with Russia being the main location of the game. The Tumblr page has since been taken down, and if you know anything about rumors, when something gets taken down quickly like that it can easily add more fuel to the fire.

As with all rumors we report on here at OnlySP, take the information with a grain of salt. However, the tweets from the Initiates account are indeed real and more than likely a tease for what’s to come. So were certainly pondering over this as much as you will be/are.

So what do you think about these rumors? Russia could be quite an interesting place to have an Assassin’s Creed game.
