The latest Assassin’s Creed series game which is mostly known as the Assassin’s Creed Empire is rumored to be given a final title. As the rumors suggest, the final title of the Egypt-based game is Assassin’s Creed Origins.
The rumor came in from a Reddit user Sirusavath who claims to be working for a company that manufactures Pre-order cards for various departmental stores. Sirusavath says that a few weeks back, a new order came from a US retailer for Far Cry 5 (Speculatively been worked on by Ubisoft right now) and Assassin’s Creed Origins. The Redditor also says that he was able to see some of the cautious Artwork for the Egypt-based game that is rumored as Assassin’s Creed Empire.
In addition, the Reddit user Sirusavath also provided the detailed description of the Pre-order card made for the US retailer. The card features the image of an assassin that resembles the one in a recently leaked screenshot. However, this screenshot has been called a fake by a Ubisoft employee. Check out the leaked image below.
Sirusavath further says that;
“I didn’t get to look at it for long. But it was art for a reservation card for a US retailer. The game is called Assassin’s Creed Origins and looks very much like it’s set in Egypt. The artwork had a city with a pyramid in the background. In the center of the card, there is the new assassin walking toward the city. It looked like he was carrying a shield, a bow, and a hawk of some sort on his shoulder.
Last bit of note is the reservation is for the Gold edition of the game which has the base game. The season pass and comes in a steel book packaging. No idea what the price will be. This isn’t the first time that I’ve found out about a game thanks to my work and in past experiences. The game is usually announced before our printer ships the cards, or shortly after. I believe these are scheduled to shipped on the 30th so the official announcement should come by then.”
Obviously, this is a rumor, so you must take it with a bit of grain and salt, of course for the time being. But the above-mentioned info by the Redditor makes it a bit credible. So, you can’t totally neglect it.
The Assassin’s Creed Empire is long rumored and much-awaited title from the Assassin’s Creed series. From the day of its reveal, the game is dubbed as Ubisoft’s multi-million selling upcoming title. However, in the light of the latest reports and rumors, it seems that the game has undergone a name change. It is possible that with the name change, some of the features of the game are also added, removed, or tweaked a bit.
Additionally, as of yet, rumors are the only thing that is offering some information about the game. Nothing has been said by the developer at all. The names Empire and Origins might confuse you that these are the names of two separate games. But, the Egypt-based setting seems to be the real deal here. It highly suggests that it’s only one game and the name of Assassin’s Creed Empire (Rumor) has been changed to Assassin’s Creed Origins. What’s the real name? It’ll definitely be blown out with the official news only. Until then, the fans will have to wait.
The Assassin’s Creed Origins is also expectedly going to start a new trilogy for the fantastical Action, Adventure, and Stealth franchise.
