What is Assassin’s Creed: Rising Phoenix?


Ubisoft is having some trouble keeping things under wraps lately. First, Splinter Cell: Blacklist looks like it’s coming to Wii U, then Watch_Dogs leaks that it’s coming to next-gen consoles, and Assassin’s Creed IV leaks three times in two days!

Now, assuming this is real, which it appears to be, we have a new image from the Assassin’s Creed universe that is reportedly made by Ubisoft Digital Arts, the company’s internal creative studio.

The image doesn’t actually show much of anything, though you can barely make out what seems like an underground entrance to an Animus, or perhaps the lab where they developed the machines.

The big question here is what kind of franchise addition is this? Are we looking at a new Vita title, or maybe a 3DS game? A movie, perhaps? An online game for Facebook? Or perhaps a web comic to tie into the upcoming Black Flag? Maybe if the title was Rising Parrot, we could tie it into the pirate theme, but the only connection we can make between pirates and phoenixes is the name of an Arizona softball team. And unless Ubisoft has gone all-out sponsoring a team by creating their own game, we’d guess its something else.

If we had to bet, we’d say Rising Phoenix something small like a web comic. Then again, we really have no idea, so let the speculation begin on what could end up being another big entry in the franchise. Sound off in the comments below, or on Facebook and Twitter!
