We still haven’t actually seen or heard much of the new Assassin’s Creed game, and the first one since 2015, when the franchise went on break after a series of underperforming, underwhelming titles. We know that Ubisoft is taking its time to reinvent the franchise, and rumors peg the new game to be named Assassin’s Creed Empire, set in ancient Egypt, and far predate all other games in the franchise.
Now, according to this newest rumor posted on Reddit, we may know a bit more. According to a user who works at a retailer in the US, the next Assassin’s Creed is allegedly called Assassin’s Creed Origins, and is in fact set in ancient Egypt. In fact, even the leaked images that Ubisoft said were not real may be very legitimate, according to this user.
Take all of this with a healthy pinch of salt- but if it is true, then given that retailers are already being sent merchandize for pre-ordering, an announcement should be imminent. We’ll know soon.
