With its previous retreat from the annual release slate the franchise has had in the past, it’s going to be interesting to see what turn Assassin’s Creed has taken itself, especially when considering past reports that have elaborated on an Egyptian setting based game, or one that gives the series a fresh and reinvented approach.
In regards to the games reveal, Alain Martinez, Ubisoft’s CFO has stated that it will be soon, but as of this time the details are wrapped up in the companies tweet, which you can view above.
