Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
Did Ubisoft Just Accidentally Leak Assassin's Creed: Revelations?
Written By
View author's profile

Speculation abound now, as Ubisoft appears to have accidentally leaked the name of its next Assassin's Creed title, as well as a logo and some subtle hints about what direction it might be taking. In short, it looks like Assassin's Creed: Revelations could be doing for Altair what Brotherhood did for Ezio. That is expanding the Middle Eastern assassin's story with a new chapter.

The apparent slip was posted on Facebook before being hastily removed, but not before NeoGAF got in there and took some quick screen grabs, which reportedly included a Flash image of the logo and Altair's name in Arabic script, according to VG247.

Ubisoft had said that it was planning to reveal the next game in the Assassin' Creed series sometime in May, so it could be that someone was slightly too quick on the draw. Or is this all just an elaborate ruse to throw us off the scent of another Assassin's Creed game? Who knows? Frankly, there's not enough concrete evidence to categorically say what's going on with this, but this should spark a nice bit of speculation.

So, speculate away! Is Altair making a comeback in a Brotherhood-style game before Assassin's Creed III proper gets released? It could happen. Either way, it's set to release during Ubi's FY2012.

This is awesome! Lets face it AC1 was a little lacking compared to 2. I love one but 2 had so much more story to it and I'd love to know more about Altair.

A 'smaller' release like this one would make sense simply because the release date is only about 8 months after Brotherhood while normally they'd wait a bit longer.

Altair and the medieval setting was a lot cooler than Ezio so this is great news.
@9 It all about sales, the turn around to brotherhood was pretty sharpish just by using the same game engine. Maximum sales for minimal effort.

If this is true, then it definitely won't be AC3, but another expansion in the universe. Still always thought Altair made for a much better character as assassin, so would welcome his return with day one buy:-)

I figured this would be their next project, since they're done with Ezio and still working on AC3,it seems logical to finish uo Altair's storyline. Then they'll move on to AC3 for late 2012.

I wouldn't mind this game, Altair wasn't a bad character and they could do more with him. However, a new time period and a new area would be brilliant, AC3 will be the best game ever.

@#19 Are you kidding me? You want them to churn out shorter games? AC3 will be AMAZING, no matter where they go with it. Ubisoft are amazing, they're not stupid. It's idiots like you that ruin the gaming industry.

I never played AC1 (& have no plans to as I heard it's horrible if you play AC2/Brotherhood first), so this should be interesting. I love AC & can't get enough of the series. It's probably tied for my favorite new IP this gen with Gears & Dead Rising.

Cannot wait for this if it is about Altair. Loved his character in the first game even if the gameplay was repetative in the first game. With the better controls and the storyline Ubisoft have been coming up with - this should be promising!

Ah I love AC but with all the history on this planet, surely they can make a different ac game based on a different story, setting, environment. Japan,China,Greece,Egypt - Russia(Comics). Not one for churning shit out - Don't want to revisit characters.
- Not that I don't like Altair (he's awesome) - but I want New,creative, imaginative games that will not be using same shit we have already seen.

More Altair is always welcomed but can we already get AC3 with brand new character and setting? And about this new game, don't you think title Revelations seems more like a tease than actual title? Besides that, everything these days is called Revelations. I just hope they won't go for quantity over quality. Ubi, don't screw up my beloved series.

Ugh! Another game series ruined by sequels, The first was fantastic and after no 2 I refused to ever play another game in this series again ;)

Sure if they go back to the way the original played & took out all the predetermined/scripted bullshit, I may well give it another try, but like the way modern warfare ruined the call of duty games & multiplayer in general I won't hold my breath.

It'll be nice to see Altair again, but I have a feeling it could end up been very disappointing. I mean Altair never had the double hidden blades, or the hidden gun, or any of that other cool stuff Ezio got from Da Vince, and without it the game would likely go back to been boring and predicable, with just one way to Assassinate like in the first game. Where as if they tried to find a way to add it into the game it wouldn't fit with the time Altair exists in and, as with everything else in Assassin's Creed, would probably make the storyline into an even bigger mess than it already is.

I do love Altair, and it would be great to have a game with him in it live up to Assassins' potential (the first game was awful- aside from graphics). But to be honest I'm getting a little tired of AC now...same with COD, ther's too many in a short amount of time....if this one is released this year, please wait 2 years before the next one.

@48 So true, especially when after AC2 they said there wouldn't be another game in the series until 2012 and yet now there will have been 2 games between then and 2012, I guess it's just proof that developers are running out of fresh ideas.

@47: Da Vinci made all of those things for Ezio BECAUSE of Altair. The secret little notes Altair was making were sometimes actually schematics for these new inventions, remember? Da Vinci would receive them, make them from Altair's schematics, and give them to Ezio.

IMO, it would be INCREDIBLY easy to work some of these inventions into Altair's time, that in mind.

Yeah, Ezio has "better moves" because it's a newer game that they built upon. But side-by-side, Altair is way more serious. Ezio jokes often and likes teasing women. Altair, on the other hand, is straight-kill your ass-serious....ALL THE TIME. So my vote goes to Altair. BTW, the name sounds cooler too.

Great! Altair...

I will always prefer Ezio over Altair, but in AC1, Altair just seemed so dull as if he had no personality whatsoever. Just my opinion, so people don't need to go bust a nut over it.

It would be nice to see a 'SPIN OFF' game telling more about him though...

Assassin's Creed 3 needs to be worked on for at least two years. So hopfully they'll stop with this one game a year crap before it gets really bad. (AKA CoD)

Hell yes! I really hope we get some more Altair, I liked him way more than Ezio, so bad-ass. Don't get me wrong, I really liked Ezio in AC:2 and Brotherhood, but I've had enough of him. Altair perfectly embodies the concept of an assassin to me. If this is the case though and this "leak" is true, I hope when AC:3 comes along we get a new assassin.

Please ubisoft don't become like EA or ACTIVISION. 1 game every 2 years in a series is plenty enough. I enjoyed AC and loved AC2 and even if AC: BH was an amazing and polished game, it was still a letdown for me. The universe was pretty much the same one that I loved in the second game which brought me quickly out of the gam. Don't get me wrong, I still proudly keep AC:BH in my library and will come back to it soon. Please take your time with this one to make it a bit more different than the previous game. Hell Ubi Montreal, even focus on other of your great franchises like Prince of Persia and splinter cell. I would also lve if you would released a new rainbow six or far cry game. You're my favorite developpement studio and I don't you to become jerks like alot of the bigger companies. Because of that, I'll still keep an eye on this one, don't disapoint me :)

Ohhh interesting. . . but. . . do I really want to play as Altair again? I mean hes a well built character its just that if he has no emotions like in AC1 the game will fall flat. I can also speculate where Desmound is during all this. . . is he linking with Altair's memories and if so whats up with HIS story instead of Altair's.

As for the person who commented whether or not it sounds more like a novel/comic book then a game is I think there was an Assassin's Creed comic book under the same name, now I could be wrong but the title does sound familiar.

#64: I could care less if the "The universe was pretty much the same" its all plot when it comes to me and Assassin's Creed Ubi has their head on straight when it comes to telling a story but still wanting you to play more and more just to find out what happens to a character whos long since passed on. They could come out with 1000 AC titles in one year if they wanted to as long as the story still somehow relates to Desmound and the Apple of Eden I will be floored by the quality of story telling. Also Subject 16 is the most interesting VG character who doesn't have a face that I've encountered in my time of playing games. So as long as you incorporate all those things the end result will always be the same. Absolutelly amazing

i don't really care if it's about Altair or Ezio or even a brand new assassin, another Assassin's Creed game is always good news in my book. I loved playing every single AC game so another would be a warm welcome no matter what it is because the Assassin's Creed franchise never disappoints me.

More AC is always good news, too bad about the graphics... in AC1 they were more boring but more realistic, AC2 was more lively but more blurry as well... not that it matters that much, but still.
I'd rather they moved on to another period and assassin, but oh well. This is almost as good I guess :p

Another Ac yay. It doesn't matter what character it is, as long as its got a good story and good controls it doesn't bother me. One thing i really want in this game is no repetition and th explanation of why Ezio returned to monterrigioni. anybody else remember when you were going to unlock the door and Desmond says" Ezio came back here when he was older" or something like that. I just want to know why he returned, if he rebuilt the city or was trying to find something. Ill definitely be picking this one up though just like ill pick up any other ac games that get made.

Also, and sorry for the double post, they already showed exactly what happened to Altair & Maria after the first game, including him being in Cyprus and showing him writing the codex. Maybe it's a port of that game.
And, accidental leak? LOL

#26 what are you talking bout? the america collectors edition with the jack in the boxes was awesome. yes i love my codex edition but if they both came out over here it would have been a tough choice! i'd rather a new timeline and character so basically a proper AC3 but if its an altair spin off game and has multiplayer like brotherhood i'm buying it! hell im buying it no matter what tbh!

Altair side-game to fill the gap between Brotherhood and AC3? Sounds good to me :D So long as the modern day team are involved too, I want to know what's happened to Desmond and co. since the Leonardo DLC.

The arabic message that was on the site earlier translates to "Altair had no son" obviously from AC2 we know he had a kids, so it must be a daughter. Does this mean the new game will revolve around her?

All the faggots refusing to buy games think the creators listen to them? Heres something that might interest you, right... Just because a few morons decide to miss out on a great game, it's what? a few hundred quid off the millions they sell. They don't give a shit what you think because the majority of people LOVE the games they make. Including me. Go be mad about the fact you're shit at AC somewhere else, kids.

@1 What if the news is "AC is being discontinued and no new game or content is going to be released", would that be good news? Anyway, besides my pettiness, i'm happy to hear about new game info etc :)

Can't wait for the game, however I would like another game with Da Vinci which is my favorite charater through out the games even though he ain't the main charater.
Can't wait for AC3 It's going to be EPIC! :D

67 exactly what i was thinking. I have absolutly no problem if a company milks a game. I love it actually as log as they are quality games it makes me happy, cause i love them. As log as they keep it up I will definitly play AC every year. Hell I get CoD every year also, although I mostly play blops for zombies.

That means Altair will have to cut off his other finger to apply AC2 and Brotherhood techniques, right? Taking away the double assassinations would suck:(

@79 Let's see, the contents wasn't worth the price that Ubi wanted for it. As cool as the jack-in-the-boxes may have looked, were made of cheap plastic, a paper map that was smaller than what came in the Codex Edition, no player-character cards, no Lineage DVD, no codex book, just an art book, no art cards and the packaging was cheap flimsy cardboard not like the tin boxes that AC I & AC II came in. I will admit that the AC II CE was okay, but it was more of an afterthought than planned out. It was only put together because us N. Americans were complaining that we weren't getting the Black Edition and the White Edition wasn't selling that well in Europe and Great Britain. Now what would've made the AC II: Master Assassin Edition that we got a true Master Assassin Edition, is if it actually came with the Master Assassin Ezio that came in the Black Edition not the white Ezio that came in the White Edition.

well i never actually played one, i skipped it and bought ac2/ac brotherhood instead. i guess any ac news is good news, but i want ac3. anything with a name other than that doesn't project confidence on the devs part.

Because Altair is born 1165 this will take place late 1100 AD or Early 1200 AD
I really would like to see Asia as location. Ninjas and samurais :]

Altair made codex and in codex there is schematic for assassins blade without sacrificing finger.
So its very likely that he will have gun, Double blades ect.

brotherhood was interesting and fun in the assassins guild and multiplayer aspects, but it did little for the overall storyline of the franchise.

I want to see a new AC with a new character that expands on Desmonds storyline. Something set in 1492 or 1776 colonial revolution period. Go behind the scenes on the american revolution with templar manipulation and scemes of that period. I can see some revolutionaries as badass assassins. Ahem B. franklin niggas! And templars in the british court and Americas like Benedict Arnold. How fuggin sweet would that be?! I just hope they dont start puming out shorter games to make a quick buck alla CoD and the franchise doesnt inovate and suffers.

Ezio is more of a smooth talker with the ladies but Altair's background makes the Templars feel more real. How about a series set in Roman times? that could make for some quality spy and assassin work in the name of the Emperor

I say milk it and give me more AC. As long as they have something awesome planned for AC3 I'll take whatever I can get. Ubisoft proved with Brotherhood they can make a great game on a short development cycle. I don't feel like waiting 3 years, I want to bow down to Ubisoft and offer them the gift of my money, right now. I wouldn't mind a different voice actor for Altair though. The guy who did AC1 really sucked.

@ 32 (Vin) - To be fair, COD is nowhere near a new IP and really hasn't been. Military shooters have been done to well over-death. Still playable and enjoyable but really nothing new about them in terms of IP. There are only a handful of truly popular, replayable and enjoyable free-roamers that also have a deep and amazing narrative. I don't think many other games capture the Dan Brown-esque mystery, fiction and adventure that Assassin's Creed captures nor do many games use such instances of actual history. The Borgia's, The Holy Land, The Pazzi Murders, etc. The only other sandboxer that captures the same kind of fictional realism is Red Dead Redemption.

Honestly if they're currently working on AC3 why would they waste resources to make another short entry? Commit everything you can to AC3 and make it a completely awesome game. I've enjoyed all 3 games in the series without a doubt and the story progression forward in time. Why go back in time? The story brought us up to retreiving the apple, I don't need to go back in time as it would serve no purpose. And for gawd sakes drop the MP, what a shit show that turned out to be with wasted achievements to boot!

I like this idea, the first assassins creed when it came out was great, but it's so lacking compared to 2 and brotherhood that i find it hard to play.
Also Ezio had the benefit of more background information, Altair was irritating almost in the lack of development. It would be nice to have him play more of a direct role in later games than just getting his sword and armor.

I liked this game, wrapped things up well for Ezio. But I still feel brotherhood is the best out of the series.
