Interesting rumors arose today regarding two of our favourite franchises: Deus Ex and Assassin’s Creed. Starting off with Assassin’s Creed, it seems that its fourth part will take place before the events of Assassin’s Creed 3. Sounds awful? Oh it sure does as Ubisoft seems to be milking the franchise once again. Hell, it got as tedious as the Dead Zone TV mini-series. What the hell Ubi?
According to both Kotaku and Examiner, players will take the role of Edward Kenway, father of Haytham Kenway from Assassin’s Creed 3, and is set in the Caribbean on multiple islands including Jamaica, Cuba and the Bahamas. Edward is known as a Privateer, Assassin and occasional pirate.
Building on the pirate themed gameplay of Assassin’s Creed 3, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag will obviously extend them and take them to the next level. Or that’s what Ubisoft will claim on its press release (if the aforementioned information is valid). Man, Assassin’s Creed feels more like the Lost as the developers have no intention of ending it.
In other news, Square Enix has trademarked a new Deus Ex has filled a new Deus Ex trademark. Spotted by PCGamer, this trademark application is for Deus Ex: Human Defiance and was submitted on February 26th. According to its classification class, Deus Ex: Human Defiance is classified as a computer video-game software.
Now this could very well be a new Deus Ex game or a remake of an old one. Or perhaps a new expansion for Human Revolution. Or a WiiU version of Human Revolution. Or a completely new next-generation project.
