Take this as a rumor, nothing is confirmed. We only have one source on this one.



Shield looks like it's of Greek origin (notice the open parts of the shield, location of the screenshot by looking at the text on the bottom is Giza, Egypt.

Could be the entrance to one of the pyramids. The icon on top kinda looks like a pharaoh sarcophage.

I always think Ubisoft leak themself to generate discution just before revealing the game they are working on.

Also I love egypt so I might check it out.

Can be Egypt setting, but also looks like it could be Greek. Maybe putting "egypt setting" in the title was a mistake. :P

Although we don't know for sure what color Ancient Egyptians were, that's lighter skin than I would have liked. Obviously it's hard to judge much from this screenshot, though.

Interesting that they're going more for a "warrior" appearance, too.

Now, if they could make a Souls/Nioh-like battle/weapon system and combine it with Assassin's Creed scenarios.

Hope it's legit. Would be the first AC game I buy this gen. Open world gameplay in Egypt is too tempting.

It was pretty good. An overlooked gem. They should have cut the stealth stuff and maybe it would have gotten more recognition.

This wasn't AC. It was a new IP that got cancelled a decade ago with the tech being brought over into AC. They turned it into an easter egg.

yeah, this popped in my mind when seeing this new picture

but this was from Osiris, which was cancelled ages ago, maybe this new shot is not from AC but from this cancelled game

Good question and why so different to Assassins Creed 1, clothing should be kinda similar or are stereotyping Egyptians now.

I hope they add the co-op stuff again. I had a blast playing with friends in AC Unity. The WD2 co-op mode was really cool too.

Wouldn't the point be that people didn't know you were an assassin?

Could be 'the ancient world' in general perhaps? So Greece, the near East, Egypt, so on. Given the naming conventions of the precursors that would kinda make sense for a connection, while nevertheless retaining the ability to be set primarily in Egypt. That or it's set in Ptolemaic Egypt, rather than just 'Ancient Egypt' in one of the dozens of numbered dynasties.

Also is it me, or does that shield have a prototype of the Assassin's Brotherhood symbol?

It could have greek origin set on egypt due to the shield looking like a greek shield.

Should be getting a reveal within the next two months or so I'd assume. They used to always reveal AC games in the Spring before. But maybe they'll just wait until E3 because of the hiatus.
