Assassin's Creed Shares The Most Bizarre Fan Letter Ever

When "Assassin's Creed" was released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 back in 2007, it launched what would become one of the biggest franchises in modern video games history. The series is still going strong after a dozen main entries and numerous spinoffs. Its latest entry, "Valhalla," received praise from critics, and fans continue to receive amazing news about the franchise's future. While many gamers are looking forward to the future of "Assassin's Creed," Ubisoft recently took the time to look back at a bizarre letter it received ten years earlier.

On August 21, the official "Assassin's Creed" account tweeted, "10 years ago, we received the most unique customer letter from an Edward S." The letter in question was sent to Ubisoft in 2012, shortly after the release of "Assassin's Creed: Revelations." The letter tells a tale of love and loss as Edward explains how they'd saved for six months to buy "Revelations," only for the copy to be destroyed before it was ever played. That said, it's not the request for a replacement disc that makes this story so odd — it's the strange way Edward claims the game was destroyed in the first place.

An emu ate my game

According to Edward, the game was initially taken to an uncle's ranch in Nevada. Leaving the disc on the bed, Edward left the room to grab a drink. After returning with a beverage, Edward found one of the ranch's emus poking its head through the window, attempting to eat the game. While Edward was able to wrestle the game free, it ended up damaged beyond repair or playability. To cap it all off, Edward claimed this all happened during their birthday. "It was the worst Birthday since my sixth Birthday, but I won't get into that now," Edward wrote.

Now, a decade later, Edward may finally get a response to the letter. Ubisoft's tweet asks for help finding this mysterious fan and for Edward to reach out directly if possible. It's unclear why Ubisoft has become interested in Edward after all these years, but it seems the publisher wants to offer the player some free games to make up for the experience.

There hasn't been any word if Edward has been identified or made contact, but some Twitter users have cast doubt on whether Edward or the story is even legitimate. That said, until definitive answers surface, some fans will wonder if the emu was a secret Templar and, perhaps more importantly, just what happened on Edward's sixth birthday.
