'Assassin's Creed 5' Rumors: 'Leaked' Images Reveal Game Title 'Assassin's Creed: Great Fall'; Setting Location Is Russia? (PHOTOS)
An attentive group of Reddit users may have spotted a leaked location and title for "Assassin's Creed 5."
Images titled "Assassin's Creed: Great Fall" are cause for the speculation. One user claims the alignment between the "Assassin's Creed" logo and "Great Fall" are off, dismissing the images as fake. However, another Reddit user alleged he saw a video of what looked liked someone recording in a conference room, which again showed the "Great Fall" title.
"Wow, I viewed it literally moments before it got taken down," the Reddit user wrote. "It's a dark and shaky video that's recorded off a projector, like the person is in a conference room with the lights off. They're trying to hide their phone while recording it, a ton of detail is obscured by fingers. Of what I could make out, it's a teaser trailer. It opens with 'Ubisoft presents' then shows the Abstergo logo on a black backdrop."
"The logo slowly rotates upside-down until it's the Erudito logo," the user continued. "While this is happening, there's dramatic piano music while a male voice gives a monologue. It's hard to make out and it's really echoey, but he seems to say 'Sometimes, the only thing you can do is pick up the pieces. And put those pieces back together.' A hand obscures the lens, but it darts out of the way very briefly so we can see that it's Assassin's Creed. It seems to be the same black and red Great Fall logo in the second picture that was posted."
The alleged "leaked video" has since been taken down. It should also be noted Ubisoft has not confirmed an "Assassin's Creed" title will be released this year, but has confirmed there are two games that have yet to be announced.
However, the title doesn't necessarily give away the location. Many Reddit users and gaming websites are speculating the setting is in Russia, but there have been previous reports of Ancient Egypt and Feudal Japan. Until Ubisoft confirms their next "Assassin's Creed" title, take all rumors with a grain of salt.
