Here's one rumor to take with a serious grain of salt, the poor quality image has appeared on Gamespace which claims to show the protagonist of Assassin's Creed 5 hanging on an office wall in Ubisoft Montreal.
The character is carrying a revolver, a weapon which was developed in the late 1830s, suggesting that the game will be set later than any previous entry in the series.
There has been speculation that the next Assassin's Creed could be set in the Wild West while Victorian London is a popular potential setting among fans for a future game.
Ubisoft Toronto president Jade Raymond has denied that the next game will be set in Feudal Japan while also revealing that the studio is developing five unannounced games, two of which are co-productions with other studios.
