Rumors of an Assassin’s Creed game with an Egyptian setting, code named Empire, have been floating the web for quite a while now. In January last year, reports surfaced that Ubisoft had pushed the game to 2017 and then we saw some screenshots back in October, which suggested that title was still in development. At least one other screenshot appeared on Reddit as recently as this past February but we didn’t make much of it. However, VG247 has now spotted a new listing for Assassin’s Creed Empire on Swiss retailer WOG’s website, with a release window of fourth quarter, 2017. You can see the listing below in case it disappears. There’s nothing to suggest that this entry is authentic and that’s a stock box image but it’s not unheard of for early retailer listings to leak games prior to their official announcements. At this point, only Ubisoft can put this rumor to rest by either confirming or denying reports that have been making rounds for such a long time. We’ll keep you posted.

Assassin’s Creed Empire
While Ubisoft has made it clear that the next Assassin’s Creed game won’t be out until it’s ready, it doesn’t mean that work isn’t already underway on the title. If a screenshot leaked by industry insider Nibel () is anything to go by, we might be looking at the Egyptian setting apparently codenamed Assassin’s Creed Empire.

There’s no way to verify the authenticity of the image yet but GamesRadar did a little bit of research on Peter Tran, who appears as an admin in the image (at the top of the menu above Progression Log and on the right). A Google search does not say much but a profile or two belonging to someone based in Montreal, Canada, were found. And yes, Ubisoft Montreal is one of the studios behind the Assassin’s Creed series. We’ll update our readers if/when Ubisoft confirms or denies the rumor. [Source: Nibellion (Twitter), GamesRadar] READ FULL STORY AT PLAYSTATIONLIFESTYLE!
