Assassin’s Creed: Victory is real, Ubisoft has confirmed, expressing its disappointment that its flagship franchise has leaked again.
Following the leak of Assassin’s Creed: Victory details today, Ubisoft has released a statement acknowledging the video is genuine.
“It is always unfortunate when internal assets, not intended for public consumption, are leaked,” the publisher told PC Gamer.
“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.”
So yes, it’s real, and yes, it’s being developed by Ubisoft Quebec for full release.
“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,” Ubisoft continued.
“In the meantime, our number one priority is enhancing the experience of Assassin’s Creed Unity for players.”
At this stage it’s best not to take other details from the report as gospel – things like a lack of PS3 and Xbox 360 port, while pretty credible, are subject to change before the game’s projected northern autumn 2015 release.
