Rumor: Next Assassin’s Creed Named Origins, Features 2 Protagonists & Naval Combat

Ubisoft’s anonymous sources approached WWG, a division of Comicbook, to provide fresh details from this year’s Assassin’s Creed game.

Since the game was rumored to be called Assassin’s Creed Empires, WWG received new information that suggests the game is now called “Assassin’s Creed Origins” and is currently scheduled to be revealed at E3 2017.

WWG stated:

“Our sources suggest that Origins is a vast open world experience taking place in ancient Egypt. The story is rumoured to revolve around the original assassin’s guild and will feature two main characters – a man and a woman.

Its structure is said to be less linear, featuring a character progression system less tied to the story. A development source we spoke to compared it numerous times to Bethesda’s Skyrim. They say that impressions of the project internally are so far positive.

The game will apparently grant the player considerably more freedom, featuring a greater emphasis on exploration over previous entries in the series. One source tells us that this is the biggest Assassin’s Creed the company has ever created and is “huge” in scope. They say that it has been in development for “at least” several years now. Hopefully, it will benefit from this extended development cycle.

Not only is Origins rumoured to boast an explorable ancient Egypt, players will also apparently be able to go beyond it – possibly even as far as Greece. We were told that boats will return in the game, allowing the player to sail the Mediterranean. Naval combat, naturally, is also said to be included.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is currently set to launch in fall 2017.”
