According to the reports, the next installment in the series is called as Assassin’s Creed Empire, set in the ancient Egypt and will be released in 2017. Earlier this year, Ubisoft decided to break the cycle of new Assassin’s Creed game every year, which they had been following since past couple of years.

The game is known for having good taste in the history of several countries. According to the details mentioned in the reports, the game will have a new lead character who used to be a slave once. The character seems to calm, rarely speaks and will have an eagle with him that will help the protagonist discover the map and surroundings.

While the map in the game is said to be three times larger than the fourth major installment in the franchise, AC IV Black Flag. Ubisoft was reportedly considering a city of Greece as the location, but the studio decided to shift to Egypt due to map scaling issues. These leaks were provided by a man claims to be an Ubisoft employee at 4Chan forums.

Ubisoft has not made any comments related to the leaks or new Assassin’s Creed game, except breaking the cycle of annual release earlier this year. What are your thoughts regarding the new AC setting in Ancient Egypt? Let us know below in the comment section!
