Rumor Next Assassins Creed to Be Released in 2017 and May Be Set in Egypt

Assassins Creed has been the center of deep criticism for a few years now, especially after the release of Unity. It looks as if Ubisoft may be...

    Assassins Creed
    has become another one of those series that finds itself with a new release every year, but the problem is that year after year, the overall quality of the games seems to degrade. The most notorious example, and arguable the game that riled up the community the most would have to be Assassins Creed: Unity. This game was initially released back in autumn of 2014 and the game experienced horrible frame rate issues, glitch infested AI and just offered a bad experience overall. It was months before we even saw the game to be remotely playable, which I can personally vouch for since I actually own this game. It seems as if Ubisoft have finally gotten the message through their heads since a few new leaks from a few different sources suggest that the next big Assassins Creed title should be making its way into the hands of gamers in 2017, meaning that Ubisoft will be skipping this year to polish their next game to make it the best it possibly could be.

    This series has seen consistent yearly releases since 2009, so it will really be different not seeing a new game this autumn. The rumors began circulating this morning because of a post made on 4Chan from a user claiming to be a developer over at Ubisoft. The post discussed how the game will be released in 2016, and how the newest title was set to take place in Egypt. The post also claims that the story would be taking place in a time period before Assassins and Templars existed, so it would essentially be like a prequel to every AC game. If you would like to read all of the posts for yourself, feel free to visit this link.

    As briefly mentioned earlier, the game is being rumored to be taking place in Egypt, which would be an exciting turn in the series. Other details that this supposed developer posted were how the main character would be a slave or ex-slave, how their is a pet eagle in the game that can be controlled and how the scenery in the game is supposedly very lush and colorful. The world is also said to be made from scratch, which makes sense since it is supposed to take place in Egypt and there isn't supposed to be a lot of recycled material from older titles, other than basic animations.

    Clearly there is no real way to verify the legitimacy of these claims, but representatives over at Kotaku have said that these pieces of information directly line up with other claims that they have been hearing about for the last few months from other sources. What do you think? Do you think this is a step in the right direction by Ubisoft? Leave your thoughts below!

    I have a extremley hard time believing this since it popped up on 4chan and the fact that kotaku backed this up doesn't mean crap since they are the cancer of gaming journalists.
    If it does end up being true then I'm quite happy. Egypt sounds like a good setting and they'll be able to cover more story behind the artifacts of eden and the last civilisation. That's something which the AC series needs since they winded up covering too much stuff behind the individual assassin instead of concentrating on the goals and the purpose of the current Assassins order. I mean we don't know much about what's really happening after Desmond's death.

    Very interesting. I need to get caught up. The last AC game I really played and got into was Black Flag. I've heard great things about Syndicate so far. We'll have to see how this pans out.

    They have 2 teams that work on Assassins Creed, this "delay" literally means nothing. Sorry for the bad news, but its the game after this that gets a 3 year development cycle.

    They need to go back to the roots of Assassins Creed none of this 12monthly rubbish with games that are purely identical, bring back the original fighting and combat system, none of this press x for cover crap.

    Finally, an AC game to get excited about again. I started losing interest after Black Flag. The A.I. is just blatantly oblivious to your actions most of the time and the stealth system they have is a joke. The first AC along with the Brotherhood series were the best in my opinion.

      Already played unity so I can't skip it.

      U skip Black Flag but not Unity? cmon son lol. Unity was the worst, and Rogue was probably worse but I haven't played that one.
    4. 3xTiNcT
      Well when I got them both unity was the newest so I wanted to check that one out first.
