It seems like news about the yet to be announced new Assassin’s Creed game is being leaked every month as yet another mysterious image might give us a look at the game’s protagonist.
Images of the next Assassin’s Creed game have leaked again with one of these purportedly showing the game’s protagonist steering what looks to be an Egyptian vessel of some kind. Now, a new leaked image might give us a better look at this new protagonist. The image was originally posted by the Le Verità dell’Animus Facebook fan page and then re-posted on Reddit. The image shows what appears to be the game’s protagonist, Ba Yek, holding both a bow and shield. His face is completely obscured. In the corner of the printed image, a new Egyptian Assassin’s Creed logo is visible that features the eye of RA.
Adding fuel to the rumour is the fact that Ubisoft’s Ashraf Ismail, who previously worked on Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, commented via Twitter that it was a “Nice T-shirt”. He is also rumoured to be working on an announced project which I suspect could be the next Assassin’s Creed title.
I’m expecting Ubisoft to reveal the next title in the franchise at E3 2017. Let’s hope we get to see the game in action. I wouldn’t mind seeing the franchise make the move to ancient Egypt. Who wouldn’t want to scale the pyramids and explore the mysterious desert?
