Though Assassin’s Creed Unity and Rogue just debuted last month, details have already been revealed for the next entry in Ubisoft’s “Assassin’s Creed” franchise as Kotaku reports the game will be set in Victorian London. The outlet reports the game is being code named “Victory” and is being developed for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for a fall 2015 release.
Ubisoft Quebec is developing the next entry in the series, having previously helped out with many of the other games in the series and heading up the DLC campaigns for Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. The site reports that unlike this year with the duel release of “Unity” and “Rogue,” 2015 will see only one “Assassin’s Creed” game released.
Kotaku goes into detail on a seven-minute video they were shown of the upcoming title which shows the lead character on top of a moving carriage, changing clothes to blend into a crowd, a new item in the grappling hook, and fighting on a moving train as it crosses the River Thames.

Ubisoft also sent the following official statement to various outlets:
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.
