Next Assassin’s Creed Game Apparently Leaked, Titled “Victory” and Set in Victorian London



Ubisoft should probably just announce the next ten years worth of Assassin’s Creed games if this is how quickly they’re being leaked. Kotaku, has yet again, come across leaked material for the next Assassin’s Creed game, only this time, much sooner than when Black Flag and Unity were leaked.

According to Kotaku, the next Assassin’s Creed game is currently in development at Ubisoft Quebec who, for the first time, are the lead development studio of an Assassin’s Creed game. If you didn’t know, Quebec developed the The Tyranny of King Washington and Freedom Cry expansions for Assassin’s Creed III and Black Flag respectively.

The leaked details reveal that the next Assassin’s Creed is subtitled, “Victory”, and will be set in Victorian London. The game will utilize the Anvil engine, which powered this year’s Assassin’s Creed Unity, and as you’re all well aware, Ubisoft has some work to do with the technical aspects of the engine. Thankfully, it seems this is the only Assassin’s Creed title that Ubisoft is currently working on for 2015 and will only release on the current-gen platforms.

Kotaku was able to get a look at a work-in-progress video for the game that shows off about 7 minutes of gameplay footage. While they have not made the video publicly available, Kotaku did provide some screen grabs and the official title logo.

While writing this article, Ubisoft also released a statement essentially confirming this is indeed legit and will reveal more at a later date. You can read their full response just below:

It is always unfortunate when internal assets, not intended for public consumption, are leaked. And, while we certainly welcome anticipation for all of our upcoming titles, we’re disappointed for our fans, and our development team, that this conceptual asset is now public. The team in our Quebec studio has been hard at work on the particular game in question for the past few years, and we’re excited to officially unveil what the studio has been working on at a later date. In the meantime, our number one priority is enhancing the experience of Assassin’s Creed Unity for players.”

For the full scoop on Assassin’s Creed Victory, feel free to visit Kotaku to get the full picture of what they saw in the video.

Housemarque Reveals First Non-Arcade Game, Stormdivers



Housemarque Stormdivers

In today’s talk at Reboot Develop, indie developer Housemarque revealed its latest game, Stormdivers.

Few details on the project have been revealed so far, but it will use Unreal Engine 4 and have a focus on multiplayer-based gameplay.

Earlier this year, the developer announced a pivot away from the arcade genre that has, heretofore, defined its games, including Super Stardust, Resogun, and Nex Machina. During the talk, the speakers, Housemarque CEO Ilari Kuittinen and Head of Publishing Mikael Haveri also went into more detail about the decision to move away from the primary source of its success.

The developers mentioned that the studio has felt typecast, first in its early years as being focused on snowboarding games and more recently as the torch-bearers for the arcade genre. Despite having met with success in its most recent endeavours, Haveri explored some of the reasons behind the move away from arcade, including mentioning that “the popularity of the genre is winding down,” comparing it to flight simulators and point-and-click adventures, which have similarly dropped off in recent years, and that its games are unable to compete effectively within the current market.

Kuittinen and Haveri also revealed some of the unrealised concepts that the team has worked on, including a standard racing game and a zombie game.
