Ubisoft made a big mistake with AC: Unity - the game was tacky, not prepared properly, and fell apart on many people's consoles. Of course, when it came to story and actual gameplay content, Unity was actually pretty impressive, and this is why I'm quite excited to hear about rumors for Ubisoft's upcoming Assassin's Creed game.
There are two reasons why I am excited, the next Assassin's Creed game couldn't possibly be launched in a state anywhere near as bad as Unity was, unless Ubisoft are purposely trying to murder the franchise.
The second reason is because, according to some rumors, the new Assassin's Creed game will be set in Victorian age London. We've seen plenty of revolutions in the Assassin's Creed universe now, but taking things back to the Victorian age will open up some interesting possibilities.
If the next AC game is set in Victorian age London, we can expect dark London streets and plenty of opportunity for great assassinations thanks to the great buildings found within London at the time.
According to other rumors, the next game in the Assassin's Creed franchise will be named Victory, which would fit in perfectly with the Victorian theme.
Would you like to see the next AC game in Victorian London, or would you prefer the game to be set elsewhere? Personally, we think there is a lot of potential for this kind of setting, but Ubisoft seem to be pretty good at capturing any historical setting or time zone.
