Ubisoft have been releasing yearly Assassin’s Creed games and after the release of Unity, which was not a critical success due to a lot of technical glitches and bugs, they have decided to skip a year.
It means there won’t be any Assassin’s Creed game in 2016.
And the good news is, the new Assassin’s Creed game is called Empire and is set in ancient Egypt.
Ubisoft are trying to take the criticisms and feedbacks seriously and will be revamping the series. They are also going to emulate The Witcher which won 170 GOTY awards in 2015. There will be horse riding, boats, player progression and freeform combat system according to a developer that posted this on 4chan.
It’s made by the Assassin’s Creed Black Flag team as well so you know it will probably end up being a very good game just as Black Flag was.
He also added that the game was pretty colourful with blue skies, lush vegetations and desert sequences where you can get mirage. There’s also a pet eagle that the main protagonist can control and you play as an ex-slave. He also revealed that Empire will have more story than previous AC games due to detachment from history.
