It seems like we may get a “new” Assassin’s Creed game this year after all. Earlier this week, a Korean game rating website listed a new PS4 title called Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection on their site. This listing prompted curiosity from fans in and of itself. Today, another leak occurred that adds even more precedent to the existence of this game. Amazon Italy has now listed the game on their website with a release date of November 17. At this point, it’s safe to assume that the game is real and will be coming to PS4, even if the date may be incorrect for those in the United States.
The Ezio Collection would contain remastered versions of Assassin’s Creed II, Brotherhood, and Revelations. These are the three games in the franchise that feature main character Ezio Auditore. In addition, all DLC packages for each of the games would be included on the disc.
Ubisoft claimed earlier this year that we wouldn’t be getting a new Assassin’s Creed game in 2016. While that is still technically true, it’s obvious that they felt the need to fill the void in some manner. With the release of the Assassin’s Creed movie on December 21, Ubisoft will want to capitalize on new fans who are introduced to the franchise through the film. It makes sense for them to release a collection of what are critically three of the best games in the franchise all in one package for both new players and those who are looking to return to the story of Ezio.
