Ubisoft Might Not Be Releasing An Assassin’s Creed Game This Year, Heading to Egypt in 2017?

Published

A new year has just begun and big rumors are already starting to circulate. Surprised? You shouldn’t be.

While it’s not necessarily a great source of information, an anonymous user on 4chan has made a post stating that a new Assassin’s Creed game won’t be released this year. Instead, Ubisoft is apparently revamping the series and will release the next entry in 2017. Here’s the full quote from 4chan:

“Egypt. There won’t be an AC in 2016. You may screencap this and refer to it when nothing is shown in E3 2016. You’ll have to wait until 2017 for it. The reason: It will be a complete revamp of the series. The game is going for a Witcher feel, with player progression, freeform combat system. Horse is back, and boats too. It’s made by the Black Flag team. You may leave any question you want answered.”

I’m wondering if this next Assassin’s Creed project might have anything to do with that leaked Osiris project that was uncovered a couple years ago. At the time, people thought it was a Prince of Persia game, but the trailer seemed to have more of an Egyptian vibe to it. You can check out that trailer for yourself by following the link if you’ve never seen it.

I don’t think Ubisoft will go without launching at least some sort of Assassin’s Creed game this year on next-gen consoles. In my opinion, we’ll finally get Assassin’s Creed: Rogue on the PS4 and Xbox One this year if this rumor proves true. We’ll just have to wait and see if Kotaku leaks anything again in a few months.

RUMOR: Fable 4 Story, Gameplay Details Leak Ahead of E3

Published

Fable 4 will abandon its typical setting of Albion and firearm combat for a brand new, medieval-themed open-world, a possible leak suggests.

A video of the upcoming game has supposedly been viewed by reddit user LagSwag1 who quickly shared the information.

The screenshot below appears to show a brief story synopsis of a new world built upon the ashes of Albion and Fable 3’s Aurora. The two lands have been ‘reduced to fables’ by a mad king, who rebuilt the Spire and wished for an asteroid to strike the planet.

Now in a new era of a medieval-styled world spanning new continents and a Heroes Guild has survived behind a demon door. The leak also appears to describe specific old Fable links such as prophet Theresa and Jack of Blades. However, whether or not these links will be main features of gameplay or if they are alluded to as myths, history, or lore is unclear.

Fable 4 will feature first or third-person camera options, features in-depth character creator, incorporates multiplayer, and also strongly relies on time travel, perhaps as a mode of fast travel.

Though, again, not officially confirmed, the leak suggests the game will also benefit from using the Unreal Engine.

Forza Horizon developer Playground Games has taken over the mantel of producing the next Fable game, so how these leaked details may relate to the game remains to be seen. If the leak is accurate, fans can look forward to an update at Microsoft’s E3 press conference June 9.
