Eurogamer spotted writer Jeffrey Yohalem talking about an ending sequence from 2010's Brotherhood, which displayed the symbols Phrygian Cap, which is associated with the French Revolution, and the masonic Eye of Providence, which referred to the North American setting of Assassin's Creed III.

"The symbols pointed to American Revolution and French Revolution," said Yohalem.

Ubisoft confirmed Assassin's Creed Unity last week after its existence was leaked online.

Yohalem was the lead writer on Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, and later went on to work on the scripts for Far Cry 3 and the upcoming Child of Light.
