The content of this article contains major spoilers.

If you have not completed the new downloadable content for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, The Da Vinci Disappearance, then do not read any further.

You have been warned.

Today, the first single-player addon for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood was released, The Da Vinci Disappearance.

While there have been many major hints and clues as to the next Assassin’s Creed title, whether it be another title in the style of Brotherhood or the final third installment, there has been nothing concrete discovered.

Until now…..

Once again, major spoilers follow. You have been warned yet again.

A summary of affairs…

The goal of the downloadable piece was to save Leonardo da Vinci after he was captured.

He has discovered underground catacombs that lead to a chamber, built by the Pythagoreans. And of course, as in any science fiction story, someone else wants it.

Ezio eventually makes his way to Leonardo and saves him, where the duo are urged onward into the chamber.

A large hole was in the roof of the initial entrance chamber. The secrets of the Pythagoreans lie within.

The Pythagoreans believed that all aspects of nature came down to numbers and equations; if man could discover these numbers, they could control nature itself.

After the chamber was opened, a room shockingly familiar to that of the end of Assassin’s Creed 2 and Brotherhood was discovered, with a pedestal in the middle.

Ezio placed his hand on the pedestal, and numbers began to show everywhere. Da Vinci picked out a certain string of numbers and letters: 43, 39, 19, N, 75, 27, 42, W.

Upon first glance, they mean nothing. And that’s precisely what Leonardo thought.

Ezio urges the disappointed Leonardo to leave, saying that this information was not for them.

That’s the end… or is it?

The tease

Insert ominous music!

When I saw that sequence, my mind automatically recognized it as latitude and longitude coordinates!

As quickly as my fingers could type, I punched in those coordinates to Google Earth.

And this is what was found.

Remember that hole I talked about? Well, click that image on the side.

It actually exists, but near a small town in New York [state] called Glenfield.

Not located in Italy, like the Brotherhood version.

This is in the United States of America.

I tried to look up things regarding the hole, but from the looks of it, people may not know that it even exists (as you can see from the image, it’s in a heavily forested area).

It is to be noted that it is not too far from Saratoga, New York, where the Battle of Saratoga (during the American Revolution) was not too far from this location.

I have a feeling this small area in New York will be getting a LOT of attention soon.

The next iteration is…

Could it have something to do with the Founding Fathers?

What do you think?

Could Assassin’s Creed 3 take place in the United States?

If it did, how would things play out?

What could they possibly have to do in the U S of A?

Could it have something to do with the original formation of the country?

Maybe George Washington had the apple with him, or something ridiculous like that.

Only time will tell…

Update 1: Thanks to the help of a user in the below comments, it was confirmed that Washington indeed was a member of a Templar organization and possessed the Apple at one point (source here).

This pretty much means I’m a wizard.

Update 2: One of the commenters came up with some very interesting stats that need to be mentioned here.

Here’s the image he made from the coordinates given in the game, and the information.

Bryan Tucker

When looking at the coordinates, I noticed just south of it was Rome, NY, and then I noticed to the NW of Rome was a Florence, NY.

Two Italian cities (Roma and Firenze) With the subject matter of the DLC being Pythagorean in nature, I used these three points to see if they made a pythagorean triangle, and low and behold it does! check it out!

I'm an American from steamy Louisiana, one of the most electronically deprived areas of the United States. I've gamed since I was four years old as a result, and plan to do it onto my deathbed. I discovered I could write in June of 2010 when I started a little site called Fans of The Genre with a few friends, and that eventually collapsed three months after due to social lives kicking in. No less than two weeks after that I discovered OXCGN via the community gamer gab competition, and become a staff member shortly after. In February of 2011 I was welcomed to the Editorial staff, then in March of 2012 I was promoted to co-owner... and here I am!

  1. I believe that this will be the PS Vita game, BECAUSE the end of Revelations it seemed like Desmond needed to save the world from ending in 2012.


  2. If it is in America, the character should be native American, it would be slightly more interesting than a pilgrim or a settler.


  3. Washington wasn’t a Templar, the wiki says he was a Freemason, which in the Assassin’s Creed universe would make him an Assassin.


    1. you are actually completely wrong the freemasons hasn’t been mentioned in assassin’s creed but since the freemasons were the templars in real history in the middle ages that makes the templars the freemasons and geroge washington was a freemason in real life not just what the game wikia suggests so he is a templar.


      1. Research a bit more about the freemasos besides “they were the templars”, the Assassin are clearly based on them (the creed, the clothes, the simbolism, the struggle against tyrany, etc).

        Even the Assassin’s logo is a almost the same as the symbol of the Freemasonery.


  4. I have thought of this, except I was thinking Civil War, the union being the templars because they wanted unity, and the south being the assassins since they fought with guerilla warfare.
