Assassin’s Creed: Origins Image Leaked - Report

Assassin’s Creed: Origins Image Leaked - Report

A blurry, off-screen image for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed game has appeared on Reddit, and three separate sources have confirmed its validity to Eurogamer.

The image (seen below) features a character rowing a small boat, wielding a bow and shield on their back. Last week WWG.com claimed that the upcoming game would be called Assassin’s Creed: Origins, and would serve as a prequel for the entire series – a detail which Eurogamer’s sources have also confirmed.

In 2016, Kotaku ran a story that the game would be set in ancient Egypt. The image above makes reference to “Khenut villa.” Khenut was a Queen of Egypt, who lived during the time of the Fifth dynasty – around 2494 to 2345 BC. The first game, which released in 2007, took place in 1191 AD.

In February, a pair of images leaked to Reddit (via WCFTech) featuring what now we know looks to be the same character. At the time, their validity couldn't be confirmed.

We’ll keep you updated as we hear more news.

Intriguing information. I wonder if we can expect it this year and they are keeping their cards close to their chests.

I'd expect an announce at E3 followed by the traditional (except for AC3, obvo) November release.

Hoping for it anyway, one of my favourite series and I'd love to see it rekindle itself.

Good on them for taking their time with this one, I just hope they put it out at a good time and give it some room to breathe

What's that, a boat, water?? Well, I'm back on board!! Plus no guns! Always found them incredibly annoying when used against you and cheap when you used them. Not the Assassin's way, hidden blade or go home!

If this is Ancient Egypt (sailing to Greece segments), and like Skyrim as its rumoured in-house devs are describing it then I'm all on board again after a long layoff.

Nah i loved it when you go all out Equilibrium once you upgrade to 4 holsters on AC BF and clean a room out in seconds.

Never played an AC game, if I can work through my backlog then this might be a good place to jump in. Probably steer clear of day one though by the glitches in past releases

Well at least they have waited a bit, kind of interesting I guess.

Hopefully we'll learn more at E3. It looks pretty (and it's a blurry-ish shot on a tv!)
