Dark times ahead…
Ubisoft has started a viral marketing campaign for all that we know for sure is a Tom Clancy title. It is what appears to be a fallen soldier in a hospital bed with information overlays streaming buy while in the background we can listen to a news broadcast that does not paint a rosy picture for a world that is in the near future. You can also click on some links within the video to attempt to glean more info on what is happening. Click on the link here for rev64 to see for yourself.
Now for the speculation. While it could be the newest chapter in one of the big 3 at UBI: Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon, or Splinter Cell, I suspect that it may be an all new franchise. Tom Clancy’s titles have been a goldmine for Ubi I am suprised they haven’t tried to mine it furthur. This may be the time. Over at Xbox360Fanboy they have reported this story as well. Already some interesting comments have popped up from what year the game takes place (2020ish) to the fact that rev64 is really from the Bible’s Revelations 6:4 which reads:
And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat theron to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
I guess one thing I do know for sure, I will be buying it!
