Coverage from the epoch timesAssassin’s Creed 5 Unity: Upcoming Assassin’s Creed V Being Developed by 10 Ubisoft Studios

Assassin’s Creed 5, known as Unity, is being developed by 10 different Ubisoft studios, the company recently revealed in a financial presentation.

The game is being developed for the PC and next-gen consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Ubisoft Montreal is the lead developer but is joined by Ubisoft studios in Toronto, Quebec, Annecy, Singapore, Shanghai, Chengdu, Kiev, Montpellier, and Bucharest.

Annecy and Bucharest helped develop multiplayer content for other AC games in the past, while Quebec and Singapore have also helped with the franchise.

Unity is reportedly going to be released sometime in November, though that is far from official. The presentation pegs the date sometime in fall 2014.

Ubisoft also said in the presentation that the Assassin’s Creed franchise comes in at fourth in cumulated retail sales from 2005 through 2013, behind FIFA Soccer, Mario, and Call of Duty. Grand Theft Auto is in fifth.

The company noted that Assassin’s Creed 4 did particularly well in 2014, selling over 11 million units.

Ubisoft says that Unity, which will be set during the French Revolution, will have “amazing next gen graphics.”
Meanwhile, another Assassin’s Creed game is reportedly being developed for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, titled Comet.

The financial presentation didn’t include any information about Comet.
