View Full Version : When Will AC 2016 Leak?

I'm always interested in the moment that I first hear about the next AC game in the series.

From what I remember, I didn't hear about ACIII until May of 2012.
ACIV leaked a little earlier- I think it was February 2013.
Unity was leaked late March, 2014.
Syndicate was actually first leaked in early December, 2014- I don't even think Unity has been out for a month at that point.

So, do you think we'll hear something about the next game before the end of the year? Or will AC remain quiet, content in Syndicate's relative success, until E3 2016?

Let me know what you think, based off the trends, and feel free to add to/correct me list here!

Seeing as Syndicate has been better received than Unity, I would say the next game will be leaked around March and then announced officially at E3 2016. They officially announced Syndicate way before E3 this time as they wanted to show footage as early as possible to show us that we weren't going to get another buggy product.

I find it funny that some PS4s (mine included) still register Syndicate as AC Victory. I believe they only decided to change the game's name after the "leak" and forgot to change the PS4 stuff. Anyway, I'd say it'll leak around March, after all DLCs have been launched and the game's sells have stabilized/are starting to decline.

Weird, I haven't even thought that we might have a Frye family game set in the past.

Would be cool to play a game and see a former protagonist (such as Arno) in a supporting role, though- kind of like Connor in Liberation, but hopefully more substantial.

I was making an analogy with the Kenway family and theirs games sometimes called Kenway saga, first we had AC3 with Connor and then, on the following game, we had AC4 with Connor's grandfather, Edward.

This is what AC needs to take tips for and from whom -

1. Bungie - Mechanics and AI engineering
2. Arkane Studios/IO Interactive/Kojima - Mission Design
3. Bioware - Storytelling, narrative design and main/side mission designs
4. CDPR - Side missions, storytelling, business practices and ethics
5. Naughty Dog - Non-disruptive transitions between cinematic and game world, dynamic gameplay

Ashraf, Patrice, and Darby come out: "So guys turns out Darby is actually Irish royalty and has a lot of money. SO... we bought the rights to Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, 1666, Watch Dogs, and Prince of Persia along with taking the best devs who worked on those games. Today we're founding a new company and will be developing better games. This means that you will have to wait until 2019 for the next AC but in the meantime here's a standalone version of ACB multiplayer, and a new pirate game with current gen sailing.

I say Q2 of 2016, because Ubisoft has no reason to leak earlier, since Syndicate is pretty much universally regarded as at least "okay".

Of course, those who are naive enough to think last year's early leaks of Syndicate were not Ubisoft doing damage control for Unity may disagree.

Syndicate/Victory was so obviously a deliberate leak that it's not even that funny. No one is that incompetent.

The leaks before, Black Flag (a couple of days before the Announcement Trailer) and Unity, those are genuine leaks you can argue since the teaser for Unity was hasty and slapdash (a foreshadowing).

Yeah... I pretty much came to that conclusion before I even read it anywhere. PR-wise, it was a good (but gutsy) move- it showed that the franchise still had a future, and they were working on improving where Unity failed. Plus, they were giving us an often requested setting.

Though it could've gone over terribly. People were already over saturated, having lived through the recent release of two full(ish) AC games in the span of a day. Announcing another so soon could've looked really tacky and fatigued a large portion of the fanbase, which was also pretty displeased with the series at that point.

In hindsight, I'm surprised the announcement/leak was as well received as it was.

Well, deliberate in a sense that somebody has did it with a purpose - yes. That it was management intention? Hell no. If we talk 'deliberate', Unity leak was deliberate as well - somebody purposefully put out screens from an early build (even the city wasn't ready, there were a bunch of white boxes used as placeholders), and it didn't look great (no early versions do), so Ubisoft quickly made something up to date to reveal it.

No management in their right minds would reveal Syndicate when it was revealed (especially with reveal consisting of internal target footage). The Internet was in a ****storm over Unity, Ubisoft was trying to fix the situation as best as possible (free DLC, blog putting visibilities on patches, etc.) that's absolutely not the best time for a reveal, and Ubisoft of course knew it. And, well, there was a lot of negative reaction over Syndicate leak, expectedly so given Unity's technical state.

Depending on the content of the next game (read; how many assets they can repurpose) I wouldn't be surprised if AC2016 got an Aguilar DLC. And I STILL say they're going to do some sort of tie-in with the main game itself, though obviously not an actual retelling of the movie.

And, well, there was a lot of negative reaction over Syndicate leak, expectedly so given Unity's technical state.

The key assumption you make is that Ubisoft's management are "in their right minds" when you can definitely see they have been capricious and overly sensitive. The fact that their annual releases tend to over-react excessively to negative releases and launches is a good indicator. Like there's no reason for them to apologize for Unity on the Syndicate livestream launch, it was surprising that they felt they had to do so and now they are trashin Unity openly, with the President blaming Unity for Syndicate's poor launch sales. That's true and I don't like Unity myself but I don't think it's good form for presidents of any company not to stand by their product and defend it, especially since many of the people who worked on that are made to feel ashamed.

The thing is that Victory leak, featuring target footage, to Kotaku had to come from someone deeply inside. It was shown to only a few people and there's no way that person would risk their career and reputation unless they were protected and it's equally unlikely that Ubisoft doesn't know who made the leak. So that's why I think the Victory leak was deliberate, as a way to defuse bad blood over Unity and give people to discuss something about AC that wasn't all complaints about the game.

To give Ubisoft the benefit of the doubt, the fact that their games are made across multiple studios in the world kind of means that there's a lot of people who know about the game and work on it. So they can't plug every hole. But Syndicate was largely made at Ubisoft Quebec so it's a much smaller circle.

I'd much prefer this than Japan, but release on "consoles of the current and old generations" seems very unlikely, unless this is a secondary "Rogue" style release to coincide with AC 2016 (though I do appreciate that they implied XBONE and PS4 as "current gen", and not "next gen".)

The key assumption you make is that I assume in what mind Ubisoft management is. I work for Ubisoft (though, mind you, not on AC). Arguing your points may make me venture into NDA territory, so I'll just leave it at the point that they are in their right minds and if you disagree then let's just leave it at that. However, consider this. Kotaku was not invited to Ubisoft E3 press conference, and Stephen Totilo wasn't given a review copy of ACS, do you think Ubisoft would do that had relationship between Kotaku and the studio not been damaged?

Also, you misinterpret the purpose of target footage in game development. Generally speaking it is created to show what to strive for. While in the early stages it might be limited to only the core team, the point of it is to show it and give access to it to every developer from the project, so everybody would have a point of reference. As it concerns ACS, the timing of the leak indicates that the footage would be in a relatively large access as it was pretty late in development (and as Ubisoft Quebec was the lead but not the only studio to work on Syndicate, the circle isn't that much smaller).

Anyway, this will be my last message regarding this topic as there's nothing more that I can say. But if you believe that Assassin's Creed Syndicate was leaked on purpose, you're free to believe that, but at that point you just become a conspiracy theorist.

Assassins Creed can delve into any time period and it continues to go up in time?! Its just crazy. Saying that, I think its most definitely fake. I don't see them releasing the next AC game for last-gen aswell when Unity and Syndicate weren't and the user base is falling for last-gen (as proven in Ubisofts latest financial report)

Yeah, that is accurate all right - don't mind me, I'll be stalking all your posts now to get the quickest info :rolleyes:

Well, assuming it's true, glad that we won't be confined to one city next time and hopefully this gives a chance for a return of a frontier / river valley setting since I miss doing parkour on natural environments. If we are staying in the west that is quite interesting since I have no clue where they might go, I feel as if the major locations have been covered already.

Time period is also a question, if they went with somewhere in Asia they could go forward in time and still have a setting that isn't too close to a modern day period given the differences in development between western and eastern countries (was hoping that this would happen so that we might see a return of sword combat) - but if it's in the west, are they going pass 19th century or simply jump back in time like the transition from AC3-4?

So, Wild Wild West and Billy the Kid...? :/


http://i.imgur.com/DVEKBp5.png


the funny thing is that billy the kid was just a punk poser who never capped anyone for reals and wyatt earp was jus a drunk and wack agent of the Man who enjoyed shootin people for expressin' freedom of speech so it would be very bad for them to be featured in an ac game as cool cats yo 'cuz that would continue the trend o' historical lies started by Unity

so all in all everyone and everythin' ya know 'bout the West was jus' a lie. Especially Custard's Last Stand!

now Black Bart here (http://www.blackbart.com/) was a real homie, he legit, he can be an assassin friend or sage as well as mah brotha from another species' motha, Bass Reeves: http://www.legendsofamerica.com/we-bassreeves.html

far more interestin' than just more rehashin' of billy the dead kid, wyatt too many movies 'bout this poser earp, and jesse greedy fool james

its time for Ubisoft to shed sum light on da real Western legends, not just dem lies spread by the system's cronies John Ford, John Wayne, and other biased Hollywood pineapples.

Haha, no it's not Yugoslavia.

It still gonna be the West though. And the map wide open. I mean, expect more than just a closed city like Unity or Syndicate.

You mean the West as in Red Dead, or the West as in Europe/US? It actually would make sense to return to US as I suspect that is pretty great for sales.

I think they might be going to the 100 years war between france and england...We've seen both capitals and thus it might be something to set up between these two countries. :p

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NH2AZPJfLjo&list=PLsCnTig29IKb0x6_8mw3eDH_ZA1icZNs4

Remembering this video and holding in mind the medieval parts of unity (introduction leads us to the post-grandtemplar period of jacques the molay). Next there is the third anomaly that takes places in 1394 medieval paris (right in the middle of the 100 years war)...

So it might be a period where there's a lot of conflict (ideal), templars at disarray (Molay)- contrasting the rule of templars in victiorian london. It brings along a nice opportunity to bring back naval warfare.

Just a thought about the West...and to hoping they go back in time :)

Edit: I don't know much about the movie, but didn't the protagonist live in the15th century? If they use the last period of the 100 years wars, it might give them an opportunity to tie it in with the movie.

We actually had our own "Wild West", after our own civil war (1828-1834), the army of the losing side was pushed to the Alentejo region, a region very similar to the wild west of the movies, these former soldiers organized themselves in gangs and lived of crime for sometime, attacking villages and farms, just like in Western movies.

Personally, I'd love to see a Wild West game somewhere down the line. Maybe sometime between 2018-2020. But now, I think we need some new, but exciting period, preferably a setting that the average layperson doesn't really know all that much about. Also, preferably something that isn't in America or Western Europe, doesn't heavily feature British Accents, and is either before the 1700s or after 1900 (while the first two points seem to be the general consensus of most gamers, I think most would also ONLY want a game before 1700... but I hold on to the idea that something in the twentieth century could be fun as well.)

My listing of 2016 AC games by probability

1. Egypt(Probability: 65%)

1. Ashraf Ismail's interview before release of black flag (that he would love to see the series go to egypt sometime )
2. Post black flag he has been working on an unannounced project (fits 2-3 general AC development time)(See Ashraf's twitter or linkedin page
3. Mention of Cairo @the end of dead kings, Ankh features in the project phoenix video
4. According to the poll above it is the most sought out time period

2. Japan (Probability : 25 %)

1. The famous Abstergo page depicting Unity, Syndicate and of course a game in Japan
2. The Rising phoenix concept artist now works for Ubisoft
3. The second ranked location in the poll above

3. India (Probability: 10%)
1. Kohi-noor the most powerful piece of eden (Can bind all the PoEs)
2. Corey May wanted to do a game in the Raj(He is not part of Ubisoft anymore though)
2. Arbaaz Mir/Jayadeep Mir(Henry Green), were present in Graphic Novel/Syndicate . Ubisoft have a few times, tied in their characters. to consecutive locations.
Quoting myself from the other thread,
I am guessing late Feb or early March since Jack the Ripper is releasing on December. They played down Syndicate marketing this time. They will likely begin earlier, if the game sells well enough, And If Ashraf is heading the project , same time frame was Black Flag can be expected

Reptil said "the West" though (as in "western country"). None of your settings are western. Also you should let them add up to less than 100% so you have an escape route :p

I had a quick look, and apparently they have done work on six AC games so far. For Syndicate they helped on some art pieces, specifically boat textures, and apparently some kind of R&D assistance.

Sounds like they are probably doing random stuff for the next game too. There was a great infographic before Syndicate came out that showed how all the different studios divide up the work loads. Pretty interesting though, especially if the multiplayer part is true.
