Assassin's Creed: Syndicate is the first Assassin's Creed game that was primarily developed by Ubisoft Quebec, the same studio that would go on to develop Assassin's Creed: Odyssey and is currently working on Gods & Monsters.

The Fryes are focused on retaking London from the Templars, challenging their opponents district by district.
