Two weeks, Ubisoft officially confirmed that it is working on several AAA titles like Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, and a new Assassin's Creed game. These titles were reportedly scheduled to release within the fiscal year as detailed by the company's earnings call. There were also some leaked screenshots that supposedly showed the new protagonist that surfaced earlier this month, but a new image has been shared that apparently shows a better look at the new character.

The image of the new Assassin's Creed lead was reportedly from a t-shirt which was originally posted by a Facebook fan page called Le Verità dell'Animus. Afterward, the picture was posted on Reddit. Gamespot points out that the shirt features the name Ba Yek, which is suspected to be that new character's name. The assassin can be seen holding a shield with his left hand and a bow on the right. Additionally, his position and hood keep most of his face hidden for now.

According to other reports, the Assassin's Creed t-shirt was allegedly taken from a GameStop branch and somehow supports the rumors of an Egyptian setting. More details support this theory in the form of some hieroglyphic symbols on the top right corner, while the background symbol shows an Egyptian scarab beetle. Ancient Egyptian myths have depicted the god Khepri as a scarab beetle or a man with the head of a scarab, says Segment Next.

The director of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Ashraf Ismail reportedly posted a comment on Twitter. He is currently listed as a game director for an "unannounced project," which is speculated to be the new Assassin's Creed. As of now, the development team handling the new installment has not been officially confirmed by Ubisoft.

Ubisoft took a year off from its Assassin's Creed franchise based on suspicions that gamers might have experienced a sort of fatigue from the previously yearly installments. Several rumors claim that the new game will be titled Assassin's Creed: Origins. The developer might have more details in store for its press conference in June during the E3 2017 event. The game is expected to launch anytime before March 2018.
