The rumor mill is back at it again and here we are with more Assassin’s Creed Empire rumors and speculation of sorts. That would be the assumed titled from all of the other leaked information for the next title in the franchise that Ubisoft has yet to confirm. None the less we are here because it looks like that time to confirm things is dwindling down as a Swiss retailer is already showing Assassin’s Creed Empire as having a release before the end of 2017. The fourth quarter of 2017 to be exact and seeing how the site is still listing it as of this article, it may be something to take a look at for now.
It has been reported that the original date for Assassin’s Creed Empire, on this site, was sometime in October of this year, but it has been updated to what you can currently see. This would point me to think that there is some kind of legitimacy to all of this, but it will still stay in the rumor pile for now as even the most recent of screenshots for this new Assassin’s Creed definitely made it look like the team would need more time to make sure that the game was up to their level of expectations as well as our own as the gamers and consumers. Then again, there is no way to know where in the development line that shot was taken or how long it was held until we saw it make its way out.
None the less, Assassin’s Creed Empire (for now) is still in development over at Ubisoft. This is something we all knew back when Syndicate was released and then confirmed again when they skipped the serialization of it in 2016 with some thinking it would be 2018 before we saw another true addition to the Assassin’s Creed franchise. The remasters and feature film don't count here in my book as I like to see something truly new and not a retelling of the same story from before. But hey, maybe this is correct and we'll see this Assassin’s Creed Empire at E3 in a huge way and then see it release in October as the rumor originally was. All I know is I want The Fractured Butt Whole to launch before this game at the very least.
Do you see any credence to this new Assassin’s Creed rumor or is it just another retailer getting us in a tizzy for a placeholder on their site? Do you think that Empire will be the final name if so and that it will also take place in Egypt as the older rumors stated? Do you too want to see The Fractured Butt Whole out before another addition to this franchise? Let us know your opinions all of this and more down in the comments. When there is more for Assassin’s Creed Empire to talk about or show off, we will have it here for you. Keep checking in on the site to be sure to see all of it as it comes. Hopefully sooner and not later.
