So less than 2 days after the rumours of who AC5's Protagonist would be, it has been revealed that the "Assassin holding a Tomahawk with 2 French Flags" and the 'somebody-told-somebody-who-told-somebody-who-yougetthedrift-' rumour is a fake. The Assassin's Creed: Great Fall title has also been revealed to be fake.
Of course, after all the fake rumours have been called out.. everyone wasn't going to be quiet and wait till Ubisoft's official announcement.
There was the Jade Raymond interview where she has claimed that Samurai Japan will NOT be the setting for AC 5. There was also a pic apparently from Ubisoft showing a Russian setting. (Nikolai.. is that you?) And then, just as I was getting ready to post this, another report leaks with a new historical setting; the Industrial Revolution in Victorian London.
So which is it? Russia or London? Well.. if other rumours are to be believed, there might be 2 Assassin's Creed games to be released in 2014. Someone mentioned this in the comments section in my previous post. I have also seen this pop up in several reports. So, it might very well be both Russia in 1 game and London in the other. My guess is that one would be a Console game and the other a PS Vita game.
It has been a crazy few days for Assassin's Creed fans and with the official announcement date drawing nearer, I'm sure we might see a few more 'leaked reports' in the next few days..
On another note, glad to see plenty of comments in my previous post, do keep them coming.
