Although Assassin’s Creed Syndicate was very well received, it appears that Ubisoft wants to bring the saga hooded during 2016. Leaving aside, the Assassin’s Creed film (starring Michael Fassbender) which will be released in late 2016. The studio wants to give it a facelift to the series, in my opinion, has been in a state of stagnation for several years now.
[Rumor] Assassin’s Creed will have a new release for 2017 – Prequel in Egypt
According to the information posted on 4chan forum, the source claims that this new iteration will be a prequel to the series, with events that precede actual rivalry of Assassin’s and Templars. You play as a slave or ex-slave. He looks a lot like Altair, but with a darker skin.
The interesting thing is that it will be a complete revamp of the series. The game is going for a Witcher feel, with player progression, free form combat system. The Horse is back, and boats too.
The new Assassin’s Creed acclimating in ancient Egypt will be developed by the same studio that brought us Black Flag, so there is hope the saga has the revival it deserves.
