Several Assassin's Creed: Origins Details Confirmed By New Leak
After its earnings call last month, Ubisoft confirmed several AAA titles in the pipeline for this financial year. It was also during that call that the developer officially confirmed that a new Assassin's Creed game was on the way. Prior to the confirmation, there were already rumors being entertained from alleged industry insiders. Now, a recent retailer leak of what looks to be a reservation card for the PlayStation 4 version of the game has confirmed that it is indeed entitled Assassin's Creed: Origins.
According to sources, the leaked image was apparently shared by an Imgur user named "jimmyfallon007". The reservation card does not only confirm the next installment's name to be Assassin's Creed: Origins but also showcases an image depicting some details that were previously rumored. Game Rant points out the protagonist's shield, bow, and what seems to be a hawk on his shoulder are also shown. These elements were reportedly seen in a leaked screenshot last month. Now, the printed image evidently proves that the screengrab could have come from the game.
More details gleaned from the Assassin's Creed: Origins reservation card also depict a pyramid, the Great Sphinx of Giza, and some stone obelisks in the background. All of these visibly confirm the previous rumors of the game being set in Egypt, reports Polygon. According to the game's pre-order card, the game will have a Gold Edition which includes a steelbook case, a season pass for future DLC, a deluxe pack for in-game items, and a pre-order bonus mission called "Secrets of the First Pyramids."
The card seems to be from Target given the logo on the upper left side of the image and it looks to be legitimate. However, the only thing that could add suspicions of it being fake is the Ubisoft logo. Just recently, the developer has announced that it has adopted a new and minimalist swirl logo, but the one from the Assassin's Creed: Origins reservation card depicts the older colored swirl design. There are sources that suspect the cards were already printed ahead of the developer's shift in logo design.
Ubisoft is expected to make the official announcement next week at E3 2017. It might have more titles in store other than Assassin's Creed: Origins, The Crew 2, and Far Cry 5. There have been persistent rumors of a new Splinter Cell game in the works as well.
