When Ubisoft surveyed Assassin's Creed fans in 2011, two possible video game locations piqued our curiosity: Feudal Japan and Victorian England. With each annual release, we've clamored to see if either had been chosen as the developer's next virtual playground. Well, for one historical backdrop that time has finally arrived. Kotaku reports that next year's instalment will take the ongoing Assassin-Templar tussle to the streets of London in the 19th century. Code-named Victory, players will be hiding in the rafters of Charing Cross station, battling atop racing stagecoaches and chasing thieves down dingy cobbled streets. Ubisoft has seemingly confirmed the leak, so it's possible that, just like Assassin's Creed Unity last year, we'll get an official trailer sooner rather than later. Kotaku has some screenshots for your perusal, but in the meantime you'll have to visualize a gruesome Jack the Ripper assassination for yourself. Of course, if you're one of the people that's been affected by the bug-riddled Unity, it's probably best to retain a fair degree of skepticism right now.[Image Credit: Kotaku]
