Hot on the heels of our revealing of the Game Of The Year edition of Assassin’s Creed 2 on Monday is this leak, reportedly from GameStop and confirmed by Ubisoft as ‘real’. The image, a photo of an inlay for a pre-order in the American retailer, shows the next in the Assassin’s Creed lineage, this next game dubbed “Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood.”
According to Kotaku, the game will continue to feature Ezio, who is now a “legendary master assassin” and follows him in his “struggle against the Templar order.” Brotherhood will be based in Rome, and will feature “innovative” online multiplayer options. It’s pretty much this game, then, that we reported on back in February.
Ubisoft have replied to the leak, confirming the authenticity of the image and are promising more information on the game next week, which is probably when Gamestop should have put out the pre-order cards.
