The gossip mill has gone into overdrive following some 4Chan posts by an alleged Ubisoft developer (as collated on NeoGAF) and echoed by a Kotaku report citing multiple anonymous sources (naturally you’ll want to pour salt on it, but don’t forget both Unity and Syndicate leaked well ahead of reveal).
According to both of these sources, there will be no Assassin’s Creed game in 2016; the next game has apparently been scheduled for 2017 because it will represent a major overhaul to the ageing series, and will be sent in Ancient Egypt.
Kotaku says the project is codenamed Empire, and that Watch Dogs 2 may release in 2016 to fill the gap left by the lack of annual Assassin’s Creed release.
The 4Chan source has several details not corroborated by Kotaku. According to this alleged leak, Empire is being developed by the team responsible for Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, and is described as having “a Witcher feel”, with player progression and a freeform combat system.

I'd be interested in seeing what a non-generic looking modern day character from a grounded modern day setting would look like.Prey wrote:We both know that the only reason I thought the character appeared as white was due to the cell phone light shining directly in his face and the fact I missed the darker coloured arm hanging down at his side. My mistake.
My point still stands regardless of whatever ethnicity he still looks generic and therefore will be highly uninteresting to play as just as Pearce was prior. Here's hoping I'm very wrong.
