With Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, the series has come right to the edge of the 1900's. A question a lot of fans asked was "where do they go now?" Moving into the next century means more guns, less convenient haystacks, and a couple of world wars.
The rumored solution? Turn the clock back and go for a prequel. Set it in ancient Egypt.
Egypt. There won't be an AC in 2016.
You may screencap this and refer to it when nothing is shown in E3 2016. You'll have to wait until 2017 for it.
The reason: It will be a complete revamp of the series. The game is going for a Witcher feel, with player progression, freeform combat system. Horse is back, and boats too. It s made by the Black Flag team.
Reset the series. Use the lessons learned from Black Flag, Unity, Syndicate...and The Witcher 3. So the rumor goes. Seamless open world. Less tall buildings (except giant monuments) more terrain traversal and sidequests. It sort of makes sense if you've been paying attention to what they did in Syndicate.
The down side for Ubisoft? They have to skip a year. No Assassin's Creed for 2016.
What say Qt3?
