Assassin’s Creed Unity was revealed to the world last week and is to be the fifth major instalment of the ever popular franchise. Assassin’s Creed Unity is set in Paris during the French Revolution, but apparently this timeline has been on the cards for some time.
The clever boys and girls at Ubisoft have been planning Assassin’s Creed Unity for the best part of three years and, according to Ubisoft’s writer, Jeffrey Yohalem, this timeline has been hidden in plain sight since Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood.
There is a moment during Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, where Desmond and our band of heroes come across a room full of brightly lit symbols. One of these symbols is the Phrygian Cap, which is actually a symbol of freedom during the French Revolution. Also secreted within the symbols of Brotherhood was the Eye of Providence, a hint at the North American setting of the subsequent Assassin’s Creed 3.
