Assassin’s Creed Empire Reportedly Set in Egypt
Assassin’s Creed Empire Rumoured to Launch in 2017
True to form, it seems the next Assassin’s Creed game (Assassin’s Creed Empire) has been leaked once more and is reportedly set in ancient Egypt.
According to sources via Kotaku, the next Assassin’s Creed game currently in development is codenamed ‘Empire’ and won’t be released until 2017 as part of a new biannual release format for the series.
One of Kotaku’s sources states that the decision is down to the disappointing 2014 release of Assassin’s Creed Unity and would give the development team more time to improve and polish the game.
Another source told Kotaku that the game would also take place in Ancient Rome although that may have changed.
Rumours originated this morning via a 4chan poster whose posts have been compiled on NeoGAF here. The original poster also mentions that there could be a new trilogy of games following the same character.
If these rumours are true then many are pointing out that Watch Dogs 2 could be imminent this year as Ubisoft’s flagship game.
What do you think of this news? Are you happy to see Assassin’s Creed take a break? What do you think of the Ancient Egyptian setting?
