Ubisoft Montreal Confirms ‘Assassin’s Creed: Unity’ Was Rushed; Will Release More Details About ‘Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate’ On May 12

When Ubisoft released 'Assassin's Creed: Unity,' fans were upset as the game seemed like incomplete. That proved to be true as plenty of bugs and glitches were found during the first month of its release.

This time, Ubisoft Montreal confirmed that the game was released unpolished and in three days, a new installment of the "Assassin's Creed" franchise will be released entitled "Assassin's Creed: Syndicate."

DSOgaming reported that Reddit member w3r3w0lv33 was able to speak with Ubisoft Montreal's Alex Hutchinson and he confirmed that the reason why Ubisoft refused to delay Unity is that it will disorient the release of future "Assassin's Creed" title.

According to the Redditor, "He acknowledged that Unity wasn't ready, but they didn't find out until the very end. He said that since the game was always-online, it had a huge impact on performance. This is why when you play without Internet connection there's generally better performance. However, Ubisoft didn't want to delay the game to this year because that would have impacted the future Assassin's Creed titles."

To strengthen the claim that the Redditor indeed visited Ubisoft Montreal, here are some of the screenshots.

Meanwhile, a new "Assassin's Creed" title will be released on May 12 and it will be called "Assassin's Creed: Syndicate." The report came from Polygon and the website confirmed that the name of the new protagonist is Jacob Frye. The story will also take place in the Industrial Revolution in London and Ubisoft guarantees that the environment of this world will be spectacular.

According to VG247, "Assassin's Creed: Syndicate" will be available to fans at 12pm EDT/5pm UK and the game is expected to hit game stores in November.
