The next installment of the extremely popular Assassin’s Creed series will be called Syndicate, and will be set in Victorian London.

The game was very unfortunately leaked last year but the official premier of the game will be rolling up on 12 May 2015 as announced by Ubisoft. This is exciting and not-so-exciting news considering the leak did bust the game wide open (at the time the game was codenamed Assassin’s Creed: Victory) so there’s a chance that the game may not be too different from what we’ve already seen from the leak.


But still, the game looks quite fun with it’s dark gloomy Victorian atmosphere and you get to use a grappling hook as well as fight on moving carriages among other new gameplay mechanics. Maybe they’ll even quietly slip in some steampunk?

The game is slated to appear on the Xbox One, PC and PS4 and there’s also  that movie that’s supposed to be in the works, but they haven’t let much on apart from the movie likely to hit cinemas in 2016.

But the big question is, will the game be the same steak and potatoes Assassin’s Creed fans are used to or will it be something totally different altogether?
