Ubisoft will officially announce the next Assassin’s Creed on Tuesday, May 12, the publisher said today.


If you read Kotaku, you already know a lot about it: this year’s AC game is set in Victorian London and, if early footage is anything to go by, will let you use a grappling hook and fight on carriages, among other new features.

Incidentally, I’d heard from a source a couple weeks ago that Ubisoft planned to announce the game during a pre-recorded stream on May 12, but hadn’t corroborated it. I also heard from the same source that the game is no longer called Victory and in fact will be called Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. We’ll find out for sure next week.


UPDATE (5/8, 1:53pm): In addition to hearing the name from other sources, we’ve seen photos of marketing materials also indicating that the game will indeed be called Syndicate. And the URL on Ubisoft’s teaser images says “ACS.”
