That's the problem with leaks. They are unreliable and often too later or earlier than expected....

Which makes this whole waiting a torture...

AC4:BF poster leaked exactly one year ago (aka that's when the media picked it up anyway): http://kotaku.com/5987035/assassins-creed-iv-is-all-about-pirates-according-to-this-poster

So it will likely happen soon :)!

it takes longer.
Maybe the Samuel Feng leal is real, but we just don't know it yet. The black flag leaks started begin february, but we only knew it was real at the end of february.

I'm easy - I just imagine the 'leaks' we have had - didn't happen, since nothing is official - its all rumours.. so anyone can make that stuff up… ;)


That way - if - there is anything new, it's a surprise..

ITS EGYPT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


jk, just wishful thinking. But within the next 5 days, there will def be some kind of a announcement or legit leak. Ubisoft knows its time. AC5 Posters just arrived at BestBuy so its only a matter of time until someone opens then and takes a pic.

PS; I don't think that its Samuel Fey since that "leak press" was also proven fake.

We know for a fact now that its not the Great Fall, or Japan.

So only other options are EGYPT!!!! I doubt it.
Chile? Nope, that's also fake
China? nope
Russia? Likely
Industrial Rev?? very likely...

everything is just speculation until you hear something from Ubisoft...... which will be soon.....very soon

True, though "Black Flag" was actually mentioned in the game by Blackbeard, but yes it was cliche. The rumour for Assassin's Creed V: Desert Son seems too bad to be true, JUST because of that title.

At any point in the next 7 days is my guess.

Anyway, I don't get why people are becoming so impatient and losing sleep over the lack of any concrete details. It's not like we have 3-5 year excruciating wait plagued with misinformation and rumours before the successive instalment is announced, AC4 was released only 3 months ago. Go outside, play some video games, do whatever to keep your mind occupied until something new surfaces.

Ubi wont say anything like that. They would have to make statements for every little fake leak that's out there. They cant say something about one leak and not the other. But I don't believe anything anymore. I heard of 100 different leaks within the last month. So until I see a actual Ubi announcement, I will just keep hoping its Egypt :cool: which im 85 percent sure its not

Has not been PROVEN wrong yet but most people here think it's a fake.

Mainly because there is no "V" (5) in the title and the "Animus Background" does not look like you could really "walk in it" like it was with the other games and several other reasons.
It doesn't look that authentic, but then again, we can't rule it out completely.

But it's most likely a fake.

Nah, Revelations wasn't announced until April. The ninth Thursday thing was just something I noticed for AC3 and AC4, it's hardly a concrete business model. Once is nothing, twice is a coincidence, it takes three times or more to make a trend... But since 2012 was apparently the year they decided to commit fully to a yearly release cycle, I figured the pattern from 2012 would be continuing. I still think we'll know within the week though. And if that press leak was legit, the announcement will be this Tuesday.

This. The AC3 and 4 leaks were obviously deliberate and controlled (I mean come on, it was a perfect render of the concept art, not some dude who snapped a cell phone pic of it at Best Buy). Surprised they haven't let anything slip yet.

I don't loose interest because of those leaks. All I'm saying is interest has been steadily decreasing since I got AC3 for me. Now, I was a little hyped again, but it is hard to keep being interested for me since my interest got less in the last years and the next game will probably decide if I will keep playing AC games or not.

Like I said, no offense. It's just how I feel.

I'm just saying, if you're at the point of leaving due to a lack of leaks when it's not even March yet, then by all means, I implore you to take a short break at least. It's a clear sign of major series fatigue. You'll only do yourself more harm with the current mentality.

They do read the forums. Some of the current leaks must have come from somewhere to be true, so just like Black Flag. The true leak might be right in front of us while we laugh of it. AC: Great Fall, proven fake. ACV: Desert Son, most likely fake. The ACV logo from AC Chile(fan page), possible fake. The early ACV press release, might be true. Especially since Black Flag had a press release leak to. All we need is a another leak to confirm what's fake of not.

Yeah, you are probably right. But it's like a bad habit, you can't get rid of it instantly.... :)

And like I said, it's less the lack of leaks but more the personal fatigue with the series. If it's something fresh an new I might be all like "YEAH" but if it's something rather boring or disappointing I will probably loose interest altogether.

I have very mixed feelings regarding AC, since it was one of my first gaming series I ever played regularly and was a fan off since the first game....

AC IV's announcement trailer was leaked on March 2, 2013 2days before the actual announcement. So I expect this this year too.

Just what I'm thinking.

I can't believe how tight-lipped Ubi has been this year regarding AC.

I hope that none of those leaks are true(great fall was already debunked and desert son looks pretty fake too so that only leaves us with victorian england) so Ubi can, for the 7th time, surprise me.

I don't think we might see any leaks.. whatever it is, they will keep us in the dark till the release date looms.

^^^ To the above guys ^^^

Yves Guillemot has already confirmed the annualisation of the series. He has said that there is going to be at least 1 AC game every year for some years to come.
As for the leaks, ACRev, AC3, AC4, ACL, ACLHD, ACPirates were leaked before their initial announcements. Tbh, with the thousands (literally) of people working on the developement and the promotion of these titles, the hard thing is not to find something leaked.

^ Indeed. I think it's impossible not to have a leak. Some journalists will become aware at some point. Last year we got a non-english youtube video where they announced the game would be about pirates. I remember it because it was in my language. And I remember people didn't believe that. lol

there are 2 reasons why i think it will be victorina london


1. the survey back in 2011 had victorian london overwhelmingly winning

2. the press release leak for it is so far the most detailed one/Smauel Fey/ reworked combat and stealth mechanics


why would someone go out of there way to make a detailed fake press release

the great fall and egypt ones are just photoshopped pictures, but the press release is the only one that has any detail

While I agree that it's the most believable leak we have and shouldn't leave it for being a good possibility, I think we shouldn't believe it fully yet.

Reason why is because of Freedom Cry hinting at the setting of the next game, and I can't for the life of me find ANYTHING there that could possibly hint at England, let alone Victorian London.

This year it's pretty wierd so the only one I can believe are Ubisoft themselves.

They were both on a Thursday, the ninth Thursday of the year to be precise, which has already come and gone. Which means my entry in the "predict AC5" thread has been shot all to hell.

But I've been making all kinds of bad predictions lately. I was REALLY wrong about the leaks. I thought we would have irrefutable confirmation by the end of last week. But the Victorian London "leak" listed the press release as March 4 (this Tuesday) so if Tuesday comes and goes without any further word, we'll at least have confirmation that the Sam Fey thing was bogus. Hoping it's not though, it sounds pretty cool.

The thread created in the Inititates page does not prove anything. The guy responsible for the leak wouldn't have had the opportunity to copy-paste the press release nor copy it due to the supervising in his office. He most probably have read it thoroughly and memorised it. Thus the grammatical mistakes and the vague statements.
I am not saying that the leak is official, but if the story is as the article on reddit claims it is, those "mistakes" are to be expected.

The missing "beak" didn't really matter in ACIV. Edward only put it up for sneaking during missions. Overall it wasn't really used much. I do love it see the Assassin wear them though. I think of it as a Assassin "trademark" and missed it in ACIV. Hopefully it will come back in ACV. As for leaks...... I don't have too much of a life for right now so I check pretty often around this time of year till the games release. So most of the year lol. The sooner we find out new info the better.;)

Although i'm not a real AC fan i have to admit. Rented the first one to play with my ex we got bored of it. played 3/4 of the second game but never got back into it. I liked it tough but i have a hard time getting back to playing a game after months. Didnt play anything else until i got black flag which i love because of the pirate setting. Not sure i would get into the next game.

I found myself just wishing to be back at sea when i get to a city and mess around too long doing all the collectibles and misions. They better come out with something nice to change the pace and have more diverse gameplay.

And technically, it wasn't announced, it was leaked. Anyway, if AC5 isn't announced today, the troll that created the whole Victorian England thing will have made me pretty sad. First time a troll would succeed in fishing me out (is that the expression? whatever).

Yeah I don't get it either. Isn't there still a good chance it will be announced thursday or something?

Yeah, I'd be really surprised if we made it to the weekend without an announcement. But then again, I was stunned that it wasn't announced/leaked last week, so what do I know?


The sam fey press release said that ACV would be revealed march 4, and people think that it would be revealed at 5:00 pm GMT +1 because that is when AC3 and 4 were announced, and since it is past that time, people think that now the press release was fake

But it could still be true. AC3 and 4 were announced on the 5th, and the release never said anything about any specific time. There are still plenty of hours left in the day for much of the world.

I thought the 5PM thing referred to Montreal time? Which would be the same timezone I'm in, and that's still four hours off.

I have no idea really.. That is just what people were saying, that it was GMT +1..which I think it the time that this forum runs on. You can probably check it out at the bottom of the page.

Yeah, I dunno, I guess they could be running on French time since Ubi is a French company, or they could be running on the local time of the AC studios. I believe it's 1:20ish in both Montreal and Toronto right now.

Lol all the ACs in the past 3 years have been leaked ahead of schedule.

Well, there was talk of Sam Fey before the press statement leaked so there's a strong possibility of England still being the setting. In which case they didn't handle it perfectly, but still pretty well given how little we know of the title at this point.

Because some months ago one of the developers of the AC series (don't know who exactly, but an important guy) said that Russia would be interesting as setting when he was asked, but he continued that they would not visit such a setting so soon since there is already a book/comic about it.

That's why I think it's very unlikely it's him.

There's something wrong this year.
In the past years we always had some leaks in the days before the announcement, like details from yves guillemot himself during ubisoft reports, leaked pictures, and hints from the ac official page on fb.
But now... the ubisoft report has been done 1-2 weeks ago and ubisoft didn't say a word about the next game. All the leaked things we had have been confirmed fake. And if this isn't enough, the ac page on fb didn't post nothing that could hint at it (yes, now I think that the picture I uploaded some minutes ago isn't related to the next assassin). So, maybe... there's no ac coming this year?

frodrigues55

Regardin the Nikolai picture, it has always bugged me somehow that he is there with the other main characters. He's not on any game, which is AC's main media, so somehow I never considered him to be one of the main assassins.

But I just got the chance to read his comics this weekend and now I can say I finally have a reason to be really annoyed at his presence there.


At first, I thought he was a horrible assassin, torturing people all the way through his missions and ordering murders in cold blood. Then, when he wants a quiet life for himself, the brotherhood goes after him in such a brutal way, I seriously do not know which side was the worst. His story is so different from the others, I seriously do not think he belongs there for some reason. Like, a blood stain in the Assassin's brotherhood.

It looks like every other assassin on that picture - from Altair to Aveline - worked for good causes and left their good mark on the brotherhood. Our big bad Russian Assassin, on the other hand, should be erased from history. Just get him out of there.

BTW, it would be fun to play a game in Russia with his kid, though. I don't know if they would make ACV with another blue-eyed blond assassin, but who knows in the future. Or they could do what was done to Edward and change his appearance as described on the books.

Nikolai never wanted to be an Assassin, and he later renounced all ties to them, so yeah, he does seem weird standing there with the other Assassins like "look how badass we are!" His presence doesn't bother me as much as Aveline's though; that picture would be so much cooler without her stupid hat ruining the aesthetic theme :nonchalance:

I REALLY wouldn't want to play as Innokenti though, as that would practically guarantee a WWII game. WAY too recent for an AC title IMO.

That's not what I meant.

It's only, normally it's announcement time. We (or I) are (am) used to it due to the annual releases. And every year there are a lot of fake leaks coming. That normally reminds me that the announcement must be near :D And if you expect and announcement anytime within the next weeks, because it has been usual that way, then the waiting really kills you :)

His presence doesn't bother me as much as Aveline's though; that picture would be so much cooler without her stupid hat ruining the aesthetic theme :nonchalance:

Aveline's questionable fashion really was something to take notice. I don't even think that hat is pratical to all the running she does, not to say it does a terrible job at hiding who she really is. It's like whoever designed her don't even know how an assassin look like.

there are 2 reasons why i think it will be victorina london


1. the survey back in 2011 had victorian london overwhelmingly winning

2. the press release leak for it is so far the most detailed one/Smauel Fey/ reworked combat and stealth mechanics


why would someone go out of there way to make a detailed fake press release

the great fall and egypt ones are just photoshopped pictures, but the press release is the only one that has any detail

Um sorry but that is not true... If could be in Victoria London but that release is not real... 1 because it says it's not out for x box 360 but it has x box 360 in the bottom 2 because it ssaid it should be released on March 4 but March 4 is nearly over and there is no reveal...

TBH - not to sound heartless, but no one is reasonable for any upset, but those who are posting the fake leaks - I'm sorry many want to believe them, however they shouldn't be used as a guide to any incoming announcements.

I can only suggest watching for official Press releases - however I can't say when or IF they will come, only that you should only trust trusted sources ;)

He CAN'T.

As and employee of Ubisoft - that is what I am trying to tell you - he signed papers to ensure that everything he might get to know before official announcement is not to be told to anyone outside Ubisoft.

I don't know if he'll loos his job immediately if he does, but I am sure as hell it will bring him a lot of negative results if he does, since Ubisoft will be very unhappy about any information becoming public before the official announcement, even if it is as subtle as when the announcement will be.

I was looking at the picture with Nicolai missing posted earlier in this thread when I noticed something if you look at the shadow assassin there are 3 white parts a hood and then 2 more with the one on the right of the picture but that would be on the left shoulder/arm of the assassin being longer than the one on the left of the picture. This to me looks like Shao Juns arm armour from Embers.
Does anyone else see the resemblance?

Wow. Finished your tantrum now? Good. Now lets talk about Assassins Creed.

This.

I think someone needs a psychologist here, maybe even a psychologist can't help :p
