Rumour: Could Assassin's Creed: Rising Phoenix Be a New Vita Game?

Mysterious image lends hope for a fresh portable entry
Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation was far from the best instalment in Ubisoft’s savage stealth series, but it at least showed that the PlayStation Vita can provide a suitable home for the franchise. While it was subject to a bit of a critical mauling, the game actually sold extremely well – leaving hope that a sequel may be on the cards somewhere down the line.
And now, with the seafaring Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag already confirmed for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, a mysterious image teasing a title called Assassin’s Creed: Rising Phoenix has provided a hint that the series may be making a comeback on Sony’s handheld machine. The image itself doesn’t reveal much, but it does show a room dressed with the Abstergo icon and a fairly believable logo. A notice in the bottom-left corner of the screen explains that the picture is for “internal use only”. Whoops.
What do you think? Could this be a new portable entry in Ubisoft’s popular franchise? Do you even want another Assassin’s Creed on Vita? Let us know in the comments section below.
