Rumor: Assassin’s Creed III Image Leaked?

Well, apparently it’s rumor week here on Gamer Crash because I’ve got another high-profile one for you today involving a small and mostly unknown game from Ubisoft.  Ok, who am I kidding, you saw the article title.

I’ve speculated on this in the past and while this can’t be confirmed quite yet, it appears that Assassin’s Creed III will be taking place in Paris on July 1789.  A date many of you will recognize as the French Revolution.  Out of all my guesses, Paris, France was easily at the top of my list.  I hope this is true because I’m ready to take a leap of faith off of the Eiffel Tower and interact with some major historical figured like Louis XVI, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Maximilien Robespierre.  The possibilities!

Yes, it goes without saying that if this indeed just some devious fan art I’m going to be crushed.  Ubisoft did mention something going down in May relating to the Assassin’s franchise so it looks like we won’t get an answer till then. 

I’ve included the dubious teaser image after the break:

    Mmmm… that sounds great! I sure hope it comes out in May. I was disappointed with the lack of mission addon-ons through the Da Vinci Disappearance, but hope that disappointment was due to them working hard on a new game. Should be interesting to see where they take it, after Desmond killed Lucy… part of the story that I don’t like at all… but I’m sure they will elaborate more on why later.

      Yeah that part of the game kinda disappointed me as well. I’m guessing it’ll be explained better in AC3…hope anyway. I didn’t even bother with the Da Vinci add-on but I heard it was alright at best anyway.

      Something about the French Revolution recreated in an AC game just makes sense to me. Fingers crossed for May.

    LOL Eiffel Tower was built 100 years after the French Revolution.

      haha history fail on my part. Probably should have looked it up…

      Regardless, I still feel that it would be a blast running around the rooftops of 18th century France. Some great storylines there especially with the amount of well known historical figures around that time as well like Robespierre, Louis XVI, an even Napoleon to an extent. Many great possibilities.
