Next Assassin's Creed will take players to merry old London for a spot of tea

The Assassin's Creed series will be hitting the English capital for its next instalment, according to sources cited in a recent Kotaku report. Believed to be titled Assassin's Creed: Victory, the publication reports that the game will be set in the Victorian era and will be released in 2015. In response to the leak, Ubisoft today released a statement to the media:

"It is always unfortunate when internal assets, not intended for public consumption, are leaked. And, while we certainly welcome anticipation for all of our upcoming titles, we're disappointed for our fans, and our development team, that this conceptual asset is now public. The team in our Quebec studio has been hard at work on the particular game in question for the past few years, and we're excited to officially unveil what the studio has been working on at a later date. In the meantime, our number one priority is enhancing the experience of Assassin's Creed Unity for players."

While it's no announcement that Assassin's Creed: Victory will definitely be hitting shelves, it has certainly added weight to the Kotaku report. The next AC title is expected to be released in the fall 2015, but we'll be on the lookout for the official unveil sometime next year. Here's a look at the gameplay:

How would you enjoy roaming the streets (and rooftops) of London in the next AC?
