A video featuring alleged new images of next-gen exclusive Assassin's Creed Unity has been removed from YouTube by Ubisoft, suggesting the screenshots could have been legitimate leaks.

The video was posted online by YouTube user 'watchdogs xwk' on Wednesday and is reported to have featured a series of images taken from the upcoming adventure. One of them, which you can see above, was snapped prior to the video being removed.

The alleged screens follow previous Unity leaks, which forced Ubisoft to formally announce the game ahead of schedule.

The game is expected to be set during the French Renaissance and star a new assassin, and is due for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC later this year.

A second Assassin's Creed title, reportedly called Assassin's Creed: Comet, is rumoured to be in development for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
