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.

I do like the new idea of a new trilogy. One of my main complaints with the series recently is that they don't give you enough time to get really invested in the protagonist.

You don't get that sense of a passage of time and character growth that you did with Ezio.

My other complaint is the utter gutting of the modern story. They listened to the crybullies who just wanted some historical game with no modern tie in, so we ended up with under 5 minutes of modern story over the course of a 25+ hour game in games like Unity and Syndicate. In Black Flag and Rogue we at least got to control a character, but it was a faceless nameless placeholder, not anyone we could get attached to.

That "blank slate" protagonist only works when you're making fucking choices. If we're gonna be on rails, you need to give us a protagonist we can get behind just like a book or movie would.

People complained about the Desmond storyline, but honestly I've seen a lot of people backpedal on this after seeing what the series is like without it. "Well I didn't mean they should get rid of it entirely, I just wanted more choice about when I get out of the Animus!!"

I, for one, am interested in where the modern story goes next, and I don't really want to find out in 3 minute installments each year over the next fifteen years.
Old man trouble back again
Fucking up my plans like oh no, oh no,
I'm back to the black again
Gettin fucked up again, oh no, oh no.
