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.

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

Fuck that, the modern story sucked and the games have been better off without it. It was poorly written, the pacing was bad, the characters were awful and the fourth wall breakage in Black Flag was shameful. Unity and Syndicate would not have been better with an expanded modern story unless it was attempted by much better writers than Ubisoft has on staff. The games are not failed by the lack of a modern story character to get invested in but by the quality of the writing for the characters in general. It's no surprise when you look at other Ubisoft games.

The Unity technical problems got a lot of press but I think the AC sales juggernaut slowing down has a much simpler answer. People are just tired of the volume of Assassin's Creed games. Why get Syndicate if they can just wait for the next one they know is coming in 6 months? When you don't take any creative risks with the mechanics for so many iterations you can't expect to keep people around forever.

I like AC games, simple mechanics and dumb little time wasting power fantasies. They have been a guilty pleasure in the past but I can only play the same thing with minor changes so many times. Nothing wrong with that, I don't expect franchises to go on forever because that leads to stale fucking shit. The only people with that expectation are shareholders and executives who only care about the monies.
