It looks like those Assassin’s Creed rumors keep popping up all over the place and it looks like we get to add one more to the list. At least if the "leaked" information pans out to be something truthful taken from Ubisoft and not some crazy hoax to get the internet all in a tizzy. Especially as the latest rumor and "leak" seem to point to the next Assassin's Creed taking place in Ancient Egypt. At least if you read into what is actually seen a bit more than just seeing a picture of rendered objects. That will make more sense here in a moments…
The latest rumor of course all starts with someone showing off an image for what is assumed to be the next Assassin's Creed taken by nefarious means. You can see the tweeted out picture just below unless Ubisoft has shut that down after the time of this posting. In any instance, it looks like we have some menus that look a lot like those of Assassin's Creed Syndicate and what looks to be a pyramid with obelisks all around it. It also states a name of 'Peter Tran' as the admin and this is an artist nearby the studios involved but nothing has been completely confirmed as of this posting.
Where I would like to poke hole here is that even if this is a real image for the next Assassin's Creed I wouldn't say it's locked in for Egypt. There are many other places that use the structure and have over the years; Egypt is just the most popular one of note. These could all just be placeholder visuals for something coming later that just happens to have the shapes mixed in. That happens all the time in games too. Not to mention that I am sure that by now all of these "leaks" would have been shut down and the artist removed if it was true in the least bit. I guess we'll find out though as we wait to see if there even is a new Assassin's Creed coming in 2017.
How much stock do you put into this rumored image for Assassin’s Creed? Does everything add up for you and this is an early look at codename Empire? Do you think that this would have been shut down with the quickness and the artist shamed if it were true? Let us know your thoughts on all of this and discuss in the comments below.
