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.

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

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.

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?

Oh damn... This is supposed to come this year right? Isn't there also a rumor that it's coming to Switch? I would cry tears of joy to have a console version of AC on the go.

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.

Oh boy. Another Assassni's Creed with a pale dude. Can't wait....Even better that he's a pale dude in Egypt. Perfect.

My "analysis":

Shield looks like it's of Greek origin, 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'm definitely liking the look of this. Was this ever hinted at in the other assassin creed games?
