The Assassin's Creed train shows no signs of slowing down even after the speed bumps Unity experienced last year. According to leaked marketing materials, Assassin's Creed: Syndicate will take players to Victorian London this holiday.

A few days ago, Ubisoft announced that it would be showing off its new Assassin's Creed game next week. The studio had previously confirmed that it was working on an Assassin's Creed game set in Victorian London, called Assassin's Creed Victory, the game may have gotten a name change. Polygon claims to have obtained marketing materials for a game called Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, which stars a character named Jacob Frye that will "transport millions of gamers to an astonishing recreation of London during the Industrial Revolution where they will find themselves immersed in a game world they'll have to see to believe."

Our Take
I'm slightly annoyed, because while I'm a huge Assassin's Creed fan, I'm definitely feeling burnt out on the series. I never finished Unity last year, so I was thinking of taking a break this year, but Victorian London does sound like a cool setting. We'll see if Ubisoft can lure me back in next week.
