New Assassin’s Creed Game To Be Revealed On May 12

Ubisoft is getting ready show off this year’s Assassin’s Creed game next week. The reveal is scheduled for May 12 at 9 a.m. Pacific / 12 p.m. Eastern.

It just so happens that Ubisoft will also be sharing its earnings report for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2015. We expect that the reveal will take place either immediately before or after the call.

In December, Ubisoft confirmed a game in development called Assassin’s Creed Victory set in Victorian England. The confirmation came after a leak of screenshot and video assets that were also confirmed to be authentic.

 

Our Take
While there doesn’t seem to be much mystery about what this Assassin’s Creed game is, this game will be under much scrutiny. Ubisoft’s 2014 was marked by significant problems with Assassin’s Creed Unity that resulted in apologies, a make-right in the form of free DLC, and cancelation of the season pass. The publisher needs this game to be great.
