Swiss Retailer Lists Assassin's Creed Empire for Q4 Release This Year

We'll likely be going back several thousand years to when Egypt was a powerful empire in the Middle-East, which will give us all sorts of interesting structures to climb throughout it.

Swiss retailer World of Games made a listing of Assassin's Creed Empire on their website today.

It's possible of course this is just speculation on the retailer's part, a bid to bring in pre-orders for the next Assassin's Creed game, without necessarily knowing anything about it.

Previous years, Ubisoft released a new Assassin's Creed game annually, but the publisher skipped a 2016 release, and it's highly likely that AC Empire will release later this year. This often happens when games don't have confirmed release dates and retailers want to get their product pages ready. It wasn't too long ago that Target leaked Middle-Earth: Shadow of War before it was announced by Warner Bros.

"I can assure you, there's no way the trailer's getting out", one NPC can be heard saying to his boss over the phone.

Altair Ibn-La'Ahad was the first "protagonist" of the Assassin's Creed series, a Middle-Eastern Assassin that kickstarted the series that so many people know and love. For anyone unfamiliar with Osiris, in Egyptian mythology he is the God of the Underworld.

As with any leak, take it with a grain of salt until we have official confirmation from Ubisoft.
