During the week some Assassin’s Creed 5 details leaked and revealed 2 new upcoming games called Unity and Comet. Ubisoft has swiftly come out and officially confirmed this in a teaser reveal trailer, Assassin’s Creed 5: Unity release will happen towards the end of 2014.
The rumors which have now been correctly confirmed revealed the Unity location as 18th century France, the teaser confirms this below. It was speculated that Assassin’s Creed Unity was being developed exclusively for the next gen platforms, judging by the stunning alpha gameplay graphics in the trailer this could also indeed be true.
Since there has been no official mention of the game presumably codenamed Comet, it is possible this title would be the one developed separately for Xbox 360 and PS3. This could cause a stir among Assassin’s Creed fans, making them feel forced into buying a PS4 or Xbox One. Comet could be a variation of Unity or may even be something completely different, set in a new environment.
Whether Ubisoft are right or wrong to release separate games for separate platforms, bringing out 2 new Assassin’s Creed games can only be good news for fans. Unity will launch in the holiday season of 2014, we are assuming this means just before Christmas time. Hopefully there will be more details on Unity and Comet at E3 this summer, this will be a very exciting year for gaming.
Are you pleased with Assassin’s Creed 5: Unity being set in France and reportedly only available on PS4 and Xbox One?
