Assassin's Creed 3, Far Cry 4 creative director Alex Hutchinson starts his own games studio
Ubisoft's future does not coincide with his vision of what video games should be
Assassin's Creed Syndicate takes us to Victorian London in 1868. The historical setting mixes painstakingly accurate architectural renderings with entertainingly campy and counterfactual cameos from figures like Darwin and Dickens. Interactively and narratively Syndicate is a mixed bag. But it's also the best entry in years for a series that's seen some high profile misfires.
