Rumor Mill: Assassin's Creed 2 May Take Place in Venice

Rumor Mill

Above is one of the scanned images from the new Game Informer magazine which shows Ezio, the new Altair, jumping over a river in Venice. In other images from the magazine, Ezio is swimming and diving into the river escaping from enemies. You can click here to browse through all the images if you wish.

This information came from an Italian website, so here’s the quote from their post:

We were able to retrieve all the images of Assassin's Creed 2 published by Game Informer magazine, some are the same as those seen in our previous news, but better quality, others are unpublished. We see new environments, enemies that Ezio meet during the adventure and also an interesting photo comparison that highlights the way the developers are playing, a very faithful to the real counterparts, some of the most striking features of the city of Venice.
