Assassin's Creed Egypt Setting Rumored

Kotaku reports a rumor that the next installment in the Assassin's Creed series is a game codenamed Empire set in Egypt, and that this will not launch until 2017, as the negative reaction to Assassin's Creed Unity is prompting Ubisoft to break from their annual fall release tradition to allow time for a more polished release. The rumors originated on 4Chan and are preserved on NeoGAF, but the author of the Kotaku article adds a personal endorsement, saying all the details match with what he's heard about the situation previously, and that he has since had further confirmations with independent sources. There is also talk of this starting a new trilogy arc with the same character and using the next installment to visit Greece/Rome.

An Egypt setting would be cool, but it really baffles me why they keep refusing to do a Feudal Japan setting, despite a lot of fans having been asking for it for years.

And they really need to do something about the core gameplay, because it's just gotten stale.

The initial rumor claims that the core gameplay mechanics are getting a complete make over which is why it would not release in 2016. They mention some RPG/adventure inspired mechanics specifically.
