On March 19, 2014, images leaked for the next game, titled or code-named Unity, showing a new assassin in Paris. The screenshots show new "parkour up" and "parkour down" buttons, a new navigation mechanic as noted by Kotaku. Kotaku also stated that Unity would release in late 2014 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and would be set during the French Revolution and feature an assassin named Arno.
