Assassins Creed Origins – PC

The story is set in Ptolemaic Egypt and follows a Medjay named Bayek, whose fight to protect his people, leads him to create the Secret Order the Assassins, with the game exploring the origin of their conflict with the Knights of Templar, serving as a prequel to the entire series. The details of the present day story-line remain unrevealed.

In February 2016, Ubisoft announced they would not be releasing a new game in 2016 in order to step “back and [re-examine] the Assassin’s Creed franchise… [and take the] year to evolve the game mechanics and to make sure we’re delivering on the promise of Assassin’s Creed offering unique and memorable gameplay experiences”.[25] On the decision, Guillemot said that “Ubisoft started to question the annualized franchise with the release of Assassin’s Creed Unity, and the fact that Assassin’s Creed Syndicate had “a slower launch than expected”. Guillemot added that “by moving away from the annual iterations of the franchise, it will give the Assassin’s Creed teams more time to take advantage of new engines and technology”.[26] Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’s director Ashraf Ismail, commented on an interview that he and the team would be interested in doing an Assassin’s Creed game in an Ancient Egyptian setting, along with reiterating an earlier statement that a female leading character was not an impossibility for the series.[27] In May 2017, Ubisoft confirmed the development of Assassin’s Creed Origins. The game was announced to be set in the Ptolemaic Egypt in June 2017. The game is set to be released worldwide on October 27, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows.
