It has been fourteen years since everybody’s favourite assassin Ezio appeared in Assassin’s Creed 2. After starring in the second instalment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise as well as Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, the cheeky Italian managed to capture gamer’s hearts.
Now thanks to one fan, Ezio has been brought back courtesy of a trailer showing the world of Assassin’s Creed 2 built using Unreal Engine 5. The Youtuber and graphics designer TeaserPlay showed off their creation in October 2022 and fans were able to see the familiar Italian landscapes in stunning detail. With new lighting and textures, Ezio’s world comes to life like never before, especially considering the game was first launched in 2009 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Most importantly is a look at the much-loved Ezio as he walks through the streets of Florence. It’s safe to say that the years have agreed with him. With the famous music swelling in the background, the trailer brings back feelings of nostalgia and reminds players why Assassin’s Creed 2 is one of the best sequels of all time.
TeaserPlay makes it clear that the trailer is just a fan-made concept with no chance of release. However, they hope it will serve as a reminder to developers of how much players will expect from a possible next-gen remake. However, it may be a while until we see an Assassin’s Creed 2 remake considering Ubisoft are busy with the upcoming release of Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
The latest instalment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise will follow Basim, a cunning street thief who dreams of seeking justice in 861 Baghdad. Set to feature good old-fashioned stealth and action with a modern twist, Mirage is gearing up to be the comeback of the assassins we know and love.
“It’s definitely an easy-to-learn hard-to-master type of game, and unless you’re a seasoned Assassin’s Creed veteran, you’ll likely fail a few times before you perfect the stealth and combat, but ultimately it’s just a lot of fun”, we wrote in our hands-on preview.
We will just have to hope Basim can live up to the infamous Ezio Auditore.
