Rise of an Empire.
Assassin’s Creed Empire, the next entry in the franchise that is reportedly set in Egypt and set to be a full reimagining of the series, has still not been officially announced (though Ubisoft has discussed it officially previously). However, thanks to leaks, it sounds like we are getting a clearer picture of what to expect from the game whenever it does come out.
According to a report on GRYOnline.Pl (translated on Facebook, obtained via NeoGAF), Assassin’s Creed Empire is set to be a prequel to the franchise. The game is being developed by the same folks who made Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (arguably the best game in the franchise), and has us playing as a former slave, and a distant ancestor of Altair. The map size will be over three times what it was in Black Flag– and it was already pretty big there.
As of right now, this remains unconfirmed, but nothing here is all that outlandish. Until Ubisoft announces something officially, take this with a pinch of salt- but do consider taking it.
