Assassin’s Creed: Unity’s French Revolution Setting Was Teased in Brotherhood

By   /   Mar 25, 2014

Many weren’t too pleased with knowing that the new Assassin’s Creed: Unity would be set during the French Revolution. I take it they had their sights set on a more interesting, colorful and haven’t-been-done-before setting.

Jeffrey Yohalem, lead writer at Ubisoft, has revealed that the studio decided on the setting way back and was even teased in the 2010’s Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood installment.

At the end of the game there was a sequence of mysterious symbols and numbers – the two most prominent being the Phrygian Cap, a symbol of the French Revolution, and the Eye of Providence, a nod towards the North American setting of Assassin’s Creed 3.

Yohalem revealed the news when being asked by a fan on Twitter if the symbols really were hints for Unity. “Yup and AC3, the symbols pointed to American Revolution and French Revolution,” is what he said.

Jeffrey Yohalem was the one who wrote the script for Brotherhood after working on Assassin’s Creed 2. He then also wrote Far Cry 3 and is now working on Child of Light.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity was leaked and then officially revealed last week. Ubisoft said that it has been in development for three years.
