PS4/Xbox One May Get Some of the Best Assassin's Creed Games
It seems as if we could get Assassin's Creed 2, Brotherhood, and Revelations on PS4 and Xbox One.
We haven't seen Assassin's Creed II protagonist Ezio Auditore since the launch of the PS4 and Xbox One, but it looks like the Italian assassin could be on his way to modern consoles. A NeoGAF user noticed "Assassin's Creed: Ezio Collection" on the Korean Ratings Board, which has become notorious for leaking games and screenshots.
Presumably, this collection would include Ezio's three adventures: Assassin's Creed II, Brotherhood, and Revelations. With the absence of an Assassin's Creed game this year, the Ezio Collection could fill a hole for fans of the series. This is all conjecture, however, as nothing has been confirmed. We've contacted Ubisoft for comment and will update this article as we receive more information.
Assassin's Creed II is already playable on Xbox One through the console's backwards compatibility program. Additionally, a similar collection, the Ezio Trilogy, was released on PS3 in 2012. This new compilation would probably be remastered for modern consoles--it's important to note this is not confirmed.
Assassin's Creed II received a score of 9 in our review for its "huge, beautifully realized world to explore," Brotherhood was scored an 8.5 for having fantastic lairs and platforming sequences, and Revelations earned itself an 8 for its "new movement options [that] keep the platforming joyful."
The next Assassin's Creed game is expected to be set in Egypt. It's rumored that the game is titled "Assassin's Creed Empire" and will be "a complete revamp of the series" featuring "a Witcher feel, with player progression" and a "freeform combat system." Ubisoft confirmed that it would not release a game in 2016 but did not share any other details.
