Assassin's Creed Revelations may take place in Istanbul, Turkey, if the cryptic teaser that appeared on the game's Facebook page is any indication. The new game in Ubisoft's historical action series was leaked last week on Facebook, and ever since then cryptic messages have been flowing out of the page revealing more and more details on the title.
The new teaser flashed the numbers 24061459 and a Tughra on top of a picture of the Hagia Sophia, a very famous building with an extremely rich history that's located in Istanbul. The numbers, after much internet detective work, we've found actually represent a date: 24.06.1459, or June 24, 1459, the birth date of Ezio from Assassin's Creed 2 and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood. The Tughra is the seal for a sultan, used to sign documents. So if we put all the clues together they clearly point towards an Istanbul setting. If it's true then we're pretty excited, as this was one of the places that we wanted to see the Assassin's Creed series visit. Check after the jump for the trailer.
What do you think about the next Assassin's Creed game's possible setting? Are you glad to see the games leave Italy?
