I figured it might be appropriate to resurface the old admin symbols we used in the old days for this post.
Today, I will be stepping down as bureaucrat and administrator of the Assassin's Creed Wiki. Eleven years ago, I joined this wiki out of passion for a franchise I fell in love the moment I started playing the first game. It didn't take me longer than a day or two to go from playing the game to making my first edit on this wiki.
Through the years of contributing the wiki, I've not only been honoured to be able to help out other fans of Assassin's Creed by contributing to this wiki, but being able to interact with all these other fans around the world who share the same passion as me. I have made many friends in places around the world I might otherwise never have met, and some I've been fortunate enough to meet in real life. To also have been able to meet the people behind the games has been something I wouldn't have thought of when I first started contributing. All of these things a…
Hello, all! I'm back with new news for you who don't follow our Twitter and Facebook. Assassin's Creed Symphony has been announced.

The premiere will be June 11, 2019, to coincide with E3.

Hello, all, I'm baaaaack! We're in a lull now, waiting for new comics to drop, but here are some whispers of news for you!
- For those of you who liked the moves, sequels
So, the Assassin's Creed movie released a couple days ago. I hope lots of you have gotten to see it. Unfortunately, some of us (including myself) haven't, so please be kind in IRC with spoilers!
In the meantime, here's some interesting tidbits:
- There'll be a couple books to release alongside the film -- hope you enjoy reading! That is, if you didn't already have it.
- There was a publicity stunt with another live, unwired Leap of Faith. Check out this footage.
((Pssst: if you liked the movie, it might be part of a trilogy...))
Happy holidays, Assassins! Enjoy the film release, and see you all in the new year (or IRC, 'cause that's a thing too)!
Hello, all, this is DarkFeather, your friendly neighborhood Rafiq. The Assassinews blog has taken a turn for the quiet, and I'd like to take it up again. Hopefully some of you will find interesting new things here, and we can spark some discussion.
So, we have a film coming, as (I hope) many of you know. Some interesting tidbits from the same:
- In the tradition of the games, historical sequences are being shot in Spanish. The game will release when it's ready, so all we can hope for is a better release cycle (more bug-free than Unity's, for example) and a caliber of game we haven't seen since Assassin's Creed II.
I'll be posting back each month with what news I've heard, seen, and found. Hopefully it will be an interesting read. As always, please stop by IRC to chat!
Assassinews 27-04-'16 — Ubisoft and Patrice Désilets resolve differences over 1666: Amsterdam, lawsuit withdrawn
As of yesterday, at least from my timezone as I post this, it has come to light that Ubisoft and Patrice Désilets have agreed to let bygones be bygones, to which Ubisoft have relinquished the right of ownership of the intellectual property known as 1666: Amsterdam back to Patrice. Ubisoft had initially come into possession of 1666 after the company had purchased the IP from THQ following the latter's dissolution, following which Ubisoft had removed Patrice from the project and then subsequently put it on development hold, sparking the legal battle between the two.
In response to this recent gesture of good will, Désilets has withdrawn his lawsuit against Ubisoft from the Superior Court of Québec, and stated: "I'm glad Ubisoft and I were able to come to an agreement that will allow me to obtain the rights to project 1666 Amsterdam. I will now devote myself entirely to the development of Ancestors: the Humankind Odyssey, my next game with Panache Digital Games."
"This is what matters most…
Ubisoft and Scholastic have announced a collaborative effort in the form of a new Assassin's Creed book series. The young adult novels, written by Matthew J. Kirby, will be titled Last Descendants, with its first installment set to release in September of this year. The second novel will come out in January 2017.
The books will follow a group of teenagers who are dragged into the conflict between the Assassins and Templars. In the first novel, the protagonist Owen will dive into the genetic memories of his ancestors through the Animus to prove his late father's innocence. Through exploring locations such as 1860s New York and the Aztec Empire during the Spanish conquest, he stumbles upon an artifact called the Trident of Eden and becomes entangled in the centuries-old war Assassin-Templar war. The novel will also include characters like , Hernán Cortés and .
Ubisoft has confirmed that there will be no main title release in the Assassin's Creed franchise in 2016. Previously, this news came about as a rumour on 4chan and was backed up by Kotaku who claimed to have sources corroborating this story. The team will be taking the year of to reinvent the series and deliver a great open world experience for 2017. The previous rumour claimed that the next title is codenamed Empire and will be set at the time of Ancient Egypt.
In the meantime, the Assassin's Creed film will debut on December 21, 2016, and there will be two comic series running throughout the rest of 2016 called Assassin's Creed and Templars. 2016 will also see the release of the iOS game Assassin's Creed: Identity.
Today Yahoo offered a first look at Michael Fassbender in costume as the main character in the upcoming Assassin's Creed film.
Fassbender's character is Callum Lynch, who discovered he's a descendant of Assassins through reliving the life of his ancestor Aguilar in 15th century Spain. After acquiring his ancestor's skills, he's poised to take on the Knights Templar in the modern era.
This confirms rumours that started circulating last year which said the film would take place at the time of the Spanish Inquisition.
The film is slated for release on 21 December 2016.
During the live stream today, Ubisoft has given us a first look at Assassin's Creed: Syndicate. Building upon the new engine and gameplay elements we'd seen in Assassin's Creed: Unity comes a new adventure set in Victorian London. The game will see us take control of Jacob Frye, who alongside his sister Evie, fights with the London gangs against the Templars' oppression of the working class.
Check out the trailers here!
Several months after Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China was first announced, Ubisoft has released the announcement trailer for Assassin's Creed Chronicles, which will focus on three separate stories from the lives of Shao Jun, Arbaaz Mir and Nikolai Orelov. You can check it out here.
Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China - Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China takes place in China, 1526, as the Ming dynasty starts to crumble. You embody Shao Jun, the last remaining Assassin of the Chinese Brotherhood, returning to her homeland with a vendetta. Newly trained by the legendary Ezio Auditore, she is hell-bent on exacting vengeance and restoring her fallen Brotherhood.
Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India - Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India throws you into the tension between the Sikh Empire and the East India Company in 1841. When a Master Templar arrives with a mysterious item that used to belong to the Assassin Order, Arbaaz Mir must discover why he's come, steal back the item, and protect his friends a…
The setting for next year's Assassin's Creed has already been revealed in the form of leaked images. In late 2015, we will be exploring London during the reign of Queen Victoria. The game, codenamed Victory, will be the first game helmed by Ubisoft's Quebec studio, as opposed to the Montreal studio.
The game will be released on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next year. There will be no release for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 next year, indicating that Assassin's Creed will fully move towards current gen consoles only.
After months of rumours related to Assassin's Creed: Comet, and most recently Assassin's Creed: Rogue, the game has finally been confirmed. The game stars the Assassin-turned-Templar Shay Patrick Cormac, operating around the North Atlantic during the Seven Years' War, hunting down his former Assassin brothers.
Cormac's travels take him to the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean, but also to a reimagined New York and the . His story will also be related to that of the Kenways, and Shay will also play a notable role in the story of Assassin's Creed: Unity.
The game is slated for release on 11 November 2014. Check out the world premiere trailer here.
This confirms earlier rumours that surfaced around the time we first heard of Assassin's Creed: Unity. Those rumours said the game will be set in 1758, and that familiar faces such as Adéwalé and Haytham Kenway will be seen again.
Today, Ubisoft has released two new trailers for the upcoming Assassin's Creed: Unity. The first, titled the Revolution Gameplay Trailer, showcases various gameplay aspects – most notably its new climbing mechanism, which makes climbing down landmarks such as the Notre-Dame much easier. Watch it below!
The second is the Inside The Revolution trailer, detailing the backstory of the French Revolution.
Rather than so many people making all these separate forums and blogs, and commenting about it on completely unrelated blogs (...why?), I'll just make this blog post.
It seems that the rumours about two Assassin's Creed games being released is true. One is coming out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC and is codenamed Unity, while the other will be coming out for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and is codenamed Comet.
Screenshots of an early version of Unity have leaked, showing the protagonist in 18th-century Paris. The leaks back up the statements of a NeoGaf user who claimed to have gotten information on the next game from a Ubisoft employee on a plane. According to the NeoGaf user, the protagonist's name is Arnaud (a French name of old German origin with some connection to eagles) and will be the leader of the French Brotherhood of Assassins. The game will be set in both Paris and England, likely London.
No information yet on Comet, but expect an official announcement on the games soon.
Since Sima is in hiatus and I don't know if he's online these days, I will fill in this Assassinews section for him. This is a good news for everyone waiting for an activation key in Assassin's Creed Initiates!
Assassin's Creed Initiates is back to Open Alpha stage again as Ubisoft lifts up its NDA (non-disclosure agreement) in AC Initiates. As AC:I became more open to the public, I guess that more information are gonna get leaked in the web. More revelations will be revealed also.

Good news everybody! (Well, good news for those of you living in the UK at least.)
For those of you lucky enough to, like me, live in the UK, I am pleased to announce the official Black Flag Tour. Taking place from October 14th through to November 19th (yes, I'm aware this post is a couple of days late) Ubisoft will be showing Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag in all its splendour in a number of different Universities.
Not only will attendees get to play on the brand-spanking new PS4, but there's also the chance to win any number of Assassin's Creed goodies.
Follow this link for the official Ubisoft announcement; but for those of you who want the dates now, I have posted them below.
So, who wants to carpool?
Ubisoft has released the first trailer for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
With Ubisoft's attendance at Comic-Con 2013 right now came the announcement of a new comic book, titled Assassin's Creed: Brahman. Again being drawn by comic book artists Cameron Stewart and Karl Kerschl, who created Assassin's Creed: The Fall (2010) and Assassin's Creed: The Chain (2012), writer Brenden Fletcher will now join the crew to pen the comic.
Brahman centers on Arbaaz Mir, a member of the Indian Brotherhood of Assassins, during the 19th century — after the birth of the . We will witness Mir's fight against the Templars, who are responsible for subjugating his people and their lands.
The comic is set to release this Fall in North America.

A new promotional video for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag surfaced today, in which Ubisoft shows the game's freeroam capabilities. The video lets us take a look at the seamless transaction between freeroaming on land and taking control of the Jackdaw at sea, and puts some extra emphasis on the importance of Edward Kenway's ship in the game.

Assassinews 15-06-'13 — Three Assassin's Creeds in development and Patrice Désilets' lawsuit with Ubisoft
Since Sima is on hiatus for the foreseeable future, I figured I'd fill in for this Assassinews edition.
It has emerged from Kotaku that Ubisoft currently have three Assassin's Creed games in production, one of them very likely being Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and two as of yet unnamed titles.
Responding to this, Ubisoft has issued this statement:
Subsequently, the title remains 'on hold'.
What are your thoughts? Please leave them in the comments section below.
Assassin's Creed creator and the franchise's former creative director Patrice Désilets has left Ubisoft once again. The 'good faith discussions' between Ubisoft and Désilets to revitalize their relationship were unfruitful and Désilets has opted to leave the company again.
I apologize for the belated news post, I was very busy these last two days. But since I did notice that people were expecting a news post to be made, here is one at last.
Ubisoft released the first gameplay trailer for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag last Monday, showing the first in-game footage from the upcoming next installment in the series.
So what do you think of what we've seen so far, and what are you most looking forward to?
The first trailer for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag has been revealed. The trailer is completely in CGI, and shows Blackbeard talking about our next game's hero Edward Kenway. Check it out here!
And lastly, several screenshots have been revealed through different sources, and you can see them here:
After a lot of leaks and rumors, Ubisoft have confirmed the existence of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, the next installment in the Assassin's Creed franchise and the sequel to last year's Assassin's Creed III.
The game will give us control of Edward Kenway, the father of Haytham Kenway and grandfather of Ratonhnhaké:ton. Fans who read Assassin's Creed: Forsaken will already know the end to Edward's life, but now we will learn his full story. The game will be set around the year 1715, and will take the player to various locations on and around the islands in the Caribbean Sea, such as . The game will be released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii U and is written by Darby McDevitt. More details will follow next Monday.
Additionally, a new game for the PlayStation Vita has been reported by VGLeaks, following last year's commercially and critically succesful Assassin's Creed III: Liberation.
Leave your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has revealed that the next Assassin's Creed title will not continue the stories of Connor and Aveline de Grandpré. The game will have an all new hero and time period, and will be developed by a new team. The next game will be a "major leap forward", and is set to be released some time before April 2014. "It is the benefit of multiple teams working on multiple chapters of the product, each getting several years to make their versions of an Assassin's Creed game", Guillemot added.
Additionally Ubisoft have released a new trailer for the upcoming The Tyranny of King Washington downloadable content for Assassin's Creed III, showcasing the unique features it will bring to the game.
Several promotional images have also been released, which may contain some mild spoilers. Take caution.
With only two days left until the release of Assassin's Creed III for the consoles, the Staff of this wiki would like to remind the community about a few things.

First off we'd like to talk about the leaked content. A few people have received their copies of ACIII earlier than the official launch date and most are excited to discuss what they may have watched. However, there are gamers who prefer not to be spoiled of the excitement this series has to offer. Therefore, we request users and anonymous contributors to avoid posting any potential spoilers until the official release of the games.
A few have already been warned since they decided to ignore the site notice and upload screenshots from ripped videos and adding information. For the next two days, please refrain from uploading screenshots or updating content.

Assassin's Creed III is set to be released a mere 8 days from now. While many of you are greatly anticipating the release of this game, we thought that we would share with you our favorite 9 trivia factoids about the Assassin's Creed series as well as facts about the Assassin's Creed Wiki.
The character Desmond Miles is voiced by one of the most
prolific voice actors in the game, Nolan North. North is known for
providing the voices of many different video game characters
including Nathan Drake, The Prince, and Edward Richofen. North is
not the only prominently known voice actor in this series though,
he is also joined by Kristen Bell who voices Lucy
Everyone knows Desmond Miles, Ezio, and Connor Kenway. However, this game is filled with many bit characters who add to the rich lore of this series. Let's explore a few of these characters briefly.

Hello people, I'm Teller and I'm here to deliver a special news update. With the upcoming Assassin's Creed 3, the rate of updates will most likely increase but leave it up to us editors, Staff and even fellow community members to keep you people up to date. Though, read carefully, spoilers may be definite and we don't want those who are trying to avoid them read any spoilers! So, if you're trying your hardest to avoid Spoilers, I do not recommend reading this blog.
"We're going to drop you guys into Memory Sequence six - that's about half way through the game," says Steve Masters, lead game designer on Assassin's Creed 3, who introduces my very first hands on with the game. "And basically, you can just do what you want from there". The rest is white noise. I've stopped listening. No offence, Steve, but the enormity of trying to sum up the intricacies and key features of a game that lasts 25 hours minimum - with a game map that covers most of America's north-eastern c…
Heya people, Teller here and from what I have seen, of the most anticipated games of 2012 has been finished. That's right, Assassin's Creed III. A friend of mine sent me a link of a recent post from Assassin's Creed 3's Fan Page on Facebook which showed 2 things:
- The Status which said "Assassins Creed 3 is Officially finished by Ubisoft Team !!! CONGRATS!!!"
- And a picture which can be seen down below.
So tell us people, are you as excited as I am for ACIII?

Thank you all, and safety and peace to you.14:47, September 2, 2012 (UTC)
It always amazes me how Ubisoft is able to crank out the Assassin Creed games once a year, yet somehow manages to improve and outclass the previous installment in the series in almost every way. Each game is an improvement in terms of graphics, sound, gameplay, story, you name it. Ubisoft hasn't ceased to surprise so far, so will the upcoming Assassin's Creed III once again be a piece of art?
From what I've seen so far, it might very well be the best Assassin's Creed to date. Let's take animations as an example. Every single animation in the game has been rebuild from the ground to fit with Connor's new style of fighting. Unlike Ezio, Connor relies heavily on movement whilst fighting, making fluid animations an absolute necessity. And these animations are most certainly fluid. If a cannonball strikes close to Connor, the way he stumbles over seems almost real. This also has a positive effect on the combat system, as Connor can now slice through hordes of enemies with Tomahawk without e…
Ubisoft have just released a new trailer showing off their new AnvilNext engine, and what changes it makes for Assassin's Creed III. Check it out here!
And more importantly, for the first time we can see Connor taking down several colonial soldiers. Hopefully now the complaints can be put to rest.

Today, a user on NeoGaf claimed to have the July issue of GameInformer which has details on the game, Assassin's Creed III: Liberation. Alongside a screenshot, it revealed that players will take up the role of Aveline, a French black female Assassin during the French and Indian War! Ubisoft gave a "no comment" when asked about the article, which basically means "we can't say anything about it but we won't say it's fake either because it isn't," and we all know how well GameInformer handles their secrets... The game will be set in New Orleans, but will also explore settings along the Gulf into Mexico, and span from 1765 to 1780.

For those who don't know, I am Blaidd, I've been a member of the Wiki for over a year, a member of the Istruttorium for little over a year, and more specifically the Rafiq of the Apprentice Program. I have agreed to post the News Blogs concerning the operations of the Wiki. Sima is doing the News Blogs regarding new Assassin's Creed info, and Teller is doing the Holiday Blogs. So let's begin.
Now while Cello was the Bureaucrat here, this Wiki ran under a strict hierarchy. Cello was of course at the top, followed by the Admins, the Istruttori, the Apprentices, and finally, the regular editors and anons. When a decision needed to be made affecting the future of this Wiki, only the Staff had a say, with Cello giving the final word, while the rest of the community was ignored. However, now that Cello is gone, we can change that system.
Our new Bureaucrats - Sima and Vatsa have abolished the old hierarchy. The new message we are trying to deliver to the community now is "equality": all users ar…
Right, so for those of you who don't know, PAX East took place from the 6th of April to the 8th, during which, a new gameplay demo for Assassin's Creed III was shown. While the demo has not yet hit the internet, screenshots and information about the demo have been released to the general public.
Here's the demo from a story point of view:
It takes place in 1775 during the battle of Bunker Hill, with Connor's mission to assassinate a British official named John Pitcairn, who is also a Templar. As the battle commences, Connor moves throughout the American ranks trying to reach Pitcairn who was at the peak of a hill. Dodging cannon-fire, Connor decides to take a different, more indirect path towards Pitcairn, through the trees. Continuing on his way, Connor comes across a group of Redcoats. Proceeding to slaughter them, Connor continued on towards the British camp. Once there, Connor located Pitcairn and made his way towards him, before using his tomahawk to kill him.
A nice little demonstrat…
I have been thinking about this for some time. Ever since the release of ACR, my interest in the series has progressively deteriorated -- everything I loved about AC, the stuff that captured me in AC1... is gone. And in ACR they managed to take away the fun and complexity AC2 and ACBH brought to the series by doing a game simply for the spite of it, with a money focused released every year, like Call of Duty does. Ubisoft disheartened me, but worse, I realized my interest in the wiki itself was fading. It´s been 2 weeks since the thought first crossed my mind, and I feel it´s time I finally follow my path again.
For almost 3 years, I have led this place. It started with me as a sole editor on a 7-article site and I helped it become a 2000+ article online encyclopedia. I am behind the recruitment of the staff and the focus on community instead of sole-content, I have overseen and managed the implementation of new portals, WikiAlliances, the Apprentice Initiative and the FanSection.

Barely into the third month of the year and we already have brickloads of information about the upcoming game, Assassin's Creed III. Today, the first video and true glimpse of the game have come to us, depicting the new ancestor, Connor, killing people and freerunning on trees. It also gives us a glimpse of one of the US founding fathers, General George Washington, and one British v.s. American battle. Check the full trailer below:
That was on the AC side of news, the game series we all love (personally, though, I'll skip ACR when using that term) =P
Now comes the news from the Wiki side, the place and people we all love so very much.
As a special treat for the fans, I am pleased to announce the official opening of our official Fan Section!

Okay, so I realize that news sites are already leaking info related to the leaked GameInformer article on Assassin's Creed III, so I suppose I will do the same here, even though it may not be quite right... Though it's either us or them.
Here is a basic rundown of the new features in the upcoming GameInformer article, to be released next week:
- The new Assassin is the son of a Native American woman and a British soldier. His calls himself Connor, but his birth name is Ratohnhaké:ton. Born into the Mohawk, he eventually crosses paths with the Assassins in his search for righteousness.
- Connor is quiet and stoic, letting actions speak for words rather than conversing with others. In contrast to Ezio, Connor is a freedom fighter who acts in the name of justice rather than on personal revenge.
- The game is set between 1753 and 1783, meaning we will be playing a good chunk of Connor's life, about the timeframe of Assassin's Creed II and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood combined.
- Settings will include Bost…
March 1st of 2012. 9 months to the fullfilment of the Mayan Prophecy, for the launch of Abstergo's Eye satellite and for the delivery of the third and final chapter of Assassin's Creed following Desmond's destiny.
And to start the hype, Ubisoft has unveiled today via GameInformer the boxart AND setting of the new game.
The new game will follow another white-beaked-hooded ancestor on one of the most century-defining wars ever -- the American Revolution.
We have no more details at this time but expect more soon -- especially if the game has been in development for as long as they say, we shall have info promptly avaiable to build up hype. And maybe this time they will deliver what is promised -- a true assassin experience.
I must say, altough the setting is kinda know and taken, with Mel Gibson's The Patriot and similar stuff covering it, the image got me excited. I'm curious to see the AC take on this. Let's hope it joins the best of AC, ACII and ACB -- namely, atmosphere/wisdom, great story,…
The first DLC for Assassin's Creed: Revelations has been announced. Named "The Lost Archive", the downloadable content will feature gameplay sequences similar to Desmond's Journey ones, but focused on Subject 16's life. Unfortunaly, Ubisoft's trend of not including (or at least delaying) PC players also makes a appearance this time. Altough I expect it to be avaiable for PC at a later date, I still find the lack of explanation for excluding the PC version disgusting, without even a mention to the why.
On a cheerful note, this week the wiki has surpassed the TWO THOUSAND main article count! (everyone cheers)
It's amazing to see that little 7-page site I found in 2009 become a 2000 pages encyclopedia, a compendium of information so complete and awesome that even AC developers use for reference. A encylopedia better even than Ubisoft's official one. And all of this build by us -- editors and staff.
To celebrate this, User:Nostalgia AC (our newest Istruttore) have made a special commemorative…
We here at Wikia are trying out a new experiment with videos to allow links on the wiki to jump to specific parts of the video without leaving the page! We have already set up a sample on the Arkham City wiki, and a link to the page is right here. If you are interested in this project, please check out the page and give some feedback on the page itself or on Hilary's talk page.
Thanks, and happy editing!
