The protagonist for the next chapter in the Assassin’s Creed franchise has seemingly been leaked in a screenshot of the headquarters of Ubisoft Montreal (via GameSpace).

Seen below, the individual is decked out in a hooded black uniform, and sports what appears to be a revolver in his right hand. The mysterious assassin doesn’t appear to be of any current character known to gamers, so we assume he’s from an upcoming title.

Of course, this is pure speculation at this point, though it certainly would make sense considering Assassin’s Creed 5 will surely get its formal reveal at some point in the near future.

Past games are usually given the reveal treatment in early spring, with leaks not uncommon prior to an official announcement -- could this be an early peak at ACV's stealthy hero?

Assassin’s Creed V is rumored to take place in a number of locations, from Victorian London, Feudal Japan and more recently, Russia.
