Next Assassin’s Creed Likely Set For 2017, May Be Set In Ancient Egypt

The popular Assassin’s Creed game series will apparently not be releasing a game in 2016. Breaking a trend dating back to 2009, the rumor is that Ubisoft’s is not planning on releasing a new entry in the Assassin’s Creed series this fall. This is likely due to an increasing fatigue in the company after a new game has been released each year for the past 6 years.

The news was reported by Kotaku, and although it is not confirmed by Ubisoft, there should be some sort of announcement regarding the future of the series soon. Typically, there is information released of the next game in the series around this time of the year.

Other news about the game is that Ubisoft has codenamed the project “Empire.” Also, it is rumored that the next game will take place in ancient Egypt. If this is true, it would take place well before the Templars, the main antagonist in the series, came together. Originally, the game may have been planned for ancient Rome, but these plans may have changed during development.

If the rumors are true, then this would mean that Ubisoft is focusing their team on developing a different game. More information will reported as it is revealed.

Fans of the series have noticed a few issues with the quality of the Assassin’s Creed series. There have been a number of glitches and minor problems with controls. However, these small issues have not deterred gamers from purchasing the game.

Assassin’s Creed Movie 2016

There will still be signs of Assassins’ Creed in 2016, however. The side scrolling “Assassin’s Creed Chronicles” will have entries released in January in February. Also, the live-action film of “Assassin’s Creed” starring Michael Fassbender is slated for a release later this year.
