Exactly one week ago a mysterious screen leaked onto the Internet for an Assassin’s Creed game called Rising Phoenix – there wasn’t much to it but it looked interesting enough. By pure coincidence a mysterious image has leaked onto the internet for the last three or four Assassin’s Creed games well before they were officially announced.
You would think that after so many security breaches the Ubisoft offices would be sealed with a laser perimeter, enforced by fully armed robotigers which shred anyone sneaking out screenshots to the press. After all, leaked images completely screw up carefully constructed PR campaigns which begin generating hype months before a game is released.
The most certainly not leaked on purpose screen showed some sort of office or laboratory and the words ‘Assassin’s Creed Rising Phoenix’. “One other possibility is that there’s surely going to be another Vita game to tie in with the release later this year of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag,” hypothesised Peter when the first image was leaked.
It appears so, as a Spanish games retailer has listed the game today. Whodathunk? Ubisoft are currently not commenting on the story, as you might expect.
