A little while ago, an image popped up on the internet that was purported to be from the next Assassin’s Creed video game. Now, thanks to some intrepid sleuthing, it has been confirmed by Eurogamer to be, indeed, an actual image from the upcoming game.
The image first showed up on Reddit, naturally, and it features a character on a boat with a shield and a bow and arrow. That’s it, but that’s enough to get people revved up on the internet. That’s the popularity of the Assassin’s Creed series. It’s also been rumored that the game will be called Assassin’s Creed: Origins, and that it will be a prequel game. Kotaku was also able to confirm that the game will be set in Egypt.
E3 will be happening in the not-too-distant future, so it probably won’t be long until the internet can stop digging and just get the information delivered to them through the usual channels. Given how much of a bomb the Assassin’s Creed movie was, everybody, including Ubisoft, will probably be happy to have a new game out to wash that taste out of their mouths. For now, all you’ve got is a picture of a dude on the boat. Enjoy.
