Assassin’s Creed: Origins, which seems to be the next Assassin’s Creed title, has been receiving leaks all over the place.
The latest one happens to be a pretty big one, and a believable one, as the release date has been leaked via a Game Informer magazine. The alleged leaked release date for Assains’s Creed: Origin is October 27, 2017.
Check out the leaked images down below:
We pretty much have to assume at this point Assassin’s Creed: Origins is real and it seems that players will be heading to Egypt with the latest installment. There have been other leaks such as the game being a soft-reboot, but at this point, that is still unclear.
Ubisoft will most certainly be showing of AC: Origins at their E3 Press Conference, which is set to air on Monday, June 12, at 4 p.m. EDT.
