[UPDATE] Ubisoft has provided a statement that seemingly confirms Assassin's Creed Victory.

"It is always unfortunate when internal assets, not intended for public consumption, are leaked. And, while we certainly welcome anticipation for all of our upcoming titles, we're disappointed for our fans, and our development team, that this conceptual asset is now public," a representative said. "The team in our Quebec studio has been hard at work on the particular game in question for the past few years, and we're excited to officially unveil what the studio has been working on at a later date. In the meantime, our number one priority is enhancing the experience of Assassin's Creed Unity for players."

The original story is below.

2015's Assassin's Creed game is set in 19th century London--the Victorian Era to be precise--and will be called (or is codenamed) Assassin's Creed Victory, according to a report today from Kotaku. The game will reportedly be released next fall for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, according to a source.

Kotaku's source says development on Victory will be led by Ubisoft's office in Quebec. This is notable because it's a shift away from Ubisoft Montreal, which has been lead developer on most major games in the series since its inception in 2007.

The site's source also says Victory will be the only major Assassin's Creed game out next fall, and that it's coming only to current-generation consoles. This is a change of form from this year, as Ubisoft released Assassin's Creed Unity for current-gen consoles and Assassin's Creed Rogue for last-gen.

Predecessor Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was released across console generations.

A seven-minute "target gameplay footage" video of Victory shows off an in-development version of the game that Kotaku reports runs on Ubisoft's Anvil engine, the same technology behind Unity. The video reveals a sequence that sees an unspecified main character running through London and jumping onto a train to fight off Templar enemies.

It also shows a new grappling hook item that could have a dramatic effect on gameplay. According to Kotaku, the grappling hook allows the main character to attach to almost any surface, allowing the player to quickly close in on a target or escape with great speed.

We have reached out to Ubisoft for comment, and will update this story with anything we hear back.
