Over on Ubisoft’s Youtube channel a short 26 second video was released stating that a “world premier reveal” of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed game will be coming next Tuesday.

This video doesn’t give us a whole lot to work with in terms of hints or information.  A simple statement that “Oppression Has to End”, with the hands of a man with a cane and hidden blade are displayed.

Is it possible to gleam anything from this video or will we be completely stuck waiting until next Tuesday to find out what this new installment in Ubisoft’s biggest franchise will be?

More bits and pieces of the puzzle can be found over at the official Assassin’s Creed website but it does little to answer any questions.  Although, the folks over at Destructoid have broken down some clues.

When looking at the image file for the Youtube video, it is entitled “ACVI_Jacobs_Hands”.  This could very well hint that the main assassin we’ll be delving into will be named Jacob.

It also seems to indicate that this will be a numbered installment with the roman numeral for six in the title.

There are also clues if you happen to check out the video on the main site and save the video there.

Words like “God Save the Queen” can be seen in the full screen video and definitely hint that the rumor about the game being set in London could be true.

What do you think this new Assassin’s Creed will be about? Do you believe the rumors about London?  Let’s discuss it in the comments below.
