Assassin’s Creed III Goes Notorious: Leaked Image Starts Its Rounds on the ‘Net
Rumors, rumors, rumors. We latch on to them when we’re anticipating something, and we especially listen to them when we know an imminent announcement is going to happen. Ubisoft has been teasing us, mercilessly, about a huge announcement that’s “only days away” regarding what we hope to be Assassin’s Creed III, and has given numerous hints that confirm that the latest Assassin’s Creed will be set during the American Revolution.
Now, gamers are on full alert as a leaked image from a Best Buy employee made its way to Kotaku, and it has started making its rounds. We’re not talking about lazy little circles, we’re talking spreading like wildfire. Even the guards in Solitude already know about it.
Take a gander at the now-notorious image:
While the source and legitimacy of the image may be questionable, it certainly points towards Ubisoft’s tiny little hint drops of the next installation’s late 18th century setting. Not to mention their latest changes on Facebook, with an image tagged with both a “Julian Auditore” and “Valley Forge.”
Sounds like some conspiracy theory crock, but eventually the signs will make sense. We just hope we don’t have to crack a code, find hidden messages in news articles, and then try to follow a flashing red dot on a screen to get to the bottom of everything.
What do you think? Would Assassin’s Creed III do well in the American Revolution? Or should it go elsewhere? Only time will tell, and damn Ubisoft if you don’t know how to get us all chomping at the bit.
