If you come to Ubisoft’s games for the size and scope of their worlds, then it looks like Assassin’s Creed: Origins won’t disappoint. In an interview with Game Informer, director Ashraf Ismail said that the game’s world is much bigger than that of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
"If I compare it to previous games in the past, I don't actually know the exact numbers [for Origins], but I would say that it's at least twice the size of Havana from Black Flag," Ismail said. "At least."
"Having said that, I don't think of the size of the city is what matters," Ismail continued. "It's really the content, the experience that you have inside of it. It's how alive it is. So we filled these locations with quests, with making each city feel unique to itself, why was it important to Egypt."
The interview also went into more details about the nuts-and-bolts of the game. As collated by GameSpot:
