Although technically Ubisoft Sofia is doing the work, Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation writer Richard Farrese told Kotaku that canonically, modern-day Templar front Abstergo is behind the Vita title. Narratively, the game is explained as a commercial spin-off to the Animus, Abstergo’s history-exploring technology which powers the franchise’s central conceit. That’s adorable. Does anybody need anything cooled off because I’m doing a pretty massive fangirl right now. Liberation releases alongside Assassin’s Creed III in late October.
