Yes you heard that right. A developer working on the next Assassin’s game has posted the news on 4chan stating that there will be no Assassin’s Creed in 2016. So we shouldn’t be waiting for it next year at E3.
Instead we will only see the next Assassin’s Creed release date happen in 2017 – and the kicker here is that it will be based in Egypt. This was the statement of the supposed dev:
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.
While 4Chan has been a notorious place when it comes to rumors, this one in particular doesn’t look as flavorful as the others. It in facts seems normal enough to be believable. However like any other rumor, we would take this supposed one year delay in the next Assassin’s Creed game release date with a grain of salt.
