The lights are on
[UPDATE]: GI reader revistinha1 managed to dig up a link to the original Deviantart post of the clever mockup, which we missed during our search of the social network site yesterday.
Deviantart user boup0quod is the talented artist responsible for the image, which is just one of many professional-looking posters he has done for movies and video games.
Thanks again to revisitinha1 for the tip!
[ORIGINAL STORY]: A provocative new image has popped up on the Internet, and rumors are already claiming that it's from Assassin's Creed III. However, critics are already calling the shot a fake. So which is it? You be the judge...
VGHQ posted the image, which the site says was sent to them by a tipster. Readers in the post's comments section claim that it's a fake taken from Deviantart, but it's an exciting possibility nonetheless. Here's the full image:
What do you think? Could it be legit, or is it just the wishful thinking of a talented fan?
Thanks to Kyle Sondergaard for the news tip!

That would be super cool. But it's probably fake.
Hmm, could be either or at this point. While I'm leaning towards "probably fake" since that seems to always be the case with these things, Revolution-era France is exactly the next setting I predicted for the franchise, so I'm kinda hoping it's real.
I really hope it is Assassin's Creed III but I think this is fan art. Do not get me wrong it's REALLY good fan art and props to the guy who made it but still I think it's fan art. Here's to hoping it's not :D
leaning towards a fake still very uncertain about it
Paris huh? I see a love interest is in order.
Plus, it looks like a French Dude Novelty Pen O_o
ergo, I agree with Dark_Defender_.
I'd like to think its real but I think the next one is prolly gonna be a modern iteration but I could be wrong
