In an AMA on Reddit yesterday, Head of Content for Assassins Creed Aymar Azaizia confirmed plans for an Assassins Creed TV show. This follows last year’s news that Ubisoft were in talks for a Netflix series.
In the AMA Azaizia was asked about the TV project to which he replied “It’s like the movie guys, we will take our time, to get sure we deliver something we can be proud of, but if you wander if it’s on our plan… YES.”
Reddit users went on to ask Azaizia about the recent leaks associated with the next entry in the Assassins Creed franchise. Images were recently leaked showing what appeared to be a character with an Assassins insignia inscribed on their shield. Ubisoft have dismissed the picture as false.
This isn’t the only time the game has been leaked, Swiss gaming retailer WOG recently listed the game along with a Q4 2017 release date.
When asked to comment, Azaizia responded simply “Lol”.
We’ll have to wait and see if any of this actually pans out but given Ubisoft’s previous track record for leaks, it’s likely Assassins Creed Empire is legit.
