The forthcoming game of Assassin’s Creed is rumored to be titled Assassin’s Creed Origins and might be the next game in the franchise instead of Empire but it is still set in Egypt.
This is per a reddit post, in which someone who works at a company who makes pre-order cards for different stores possibly spilled the beans about Origins and Far Cry 5, the company currently got orders to make pre-order cards for a new game of Assassin’s Creed that is named Assassin’s Creed Origins.
Irrespective of the change in name, as per these cards, the game is still set in Egypt because the reddit user explained a pyramid to be present on the cover of the game. This person even added something about the main character in the game and he may have a shield, a bow and a pet hawk.
Although the name of the game has been changed but everything else that the reddit user mentioned about the game seems to be the same as the previous rumors that gave clues about the game to be set in Egypt and that the players might just be able to use a shield in this game which is quite strange when it comes to assassin.
Furthermore, the shipment of the pre-order cards is supposed to go on the 30th of this month which means that the official announcement of the game is probably going to come after this is done. We are hoping that it could be in the E3 2017 because that’s what the usual case is when it comes to a new game in the franchise, Assassin’s Creed.
On the other hand, if this game, Assassin’s Creed Origins is actually taking place then the retailers of games are saying that the game is going to be released in October, this year. But the game is perhaps actually going to be released because as we all know that the franchise didn’t release anything last year, considering that it does annual releases.
Other rumor about the game was that the map is going to be huge; three times bigger than Black Flag. Another leak shows an image of the game menu but later on, it was deemed to be irrelevant and unofficial.
