Assassin’s Creed Origins release date leaks before Ubisoft’s E3 press conference


It seems that keeping the veil of secrecy on a video game is getting harder by the day, especially if it’s a high-profile game belonging to one of the biggest franchises ever… Because despite its best efforts to keep the details of their next Assassin’s Creed game under wraps, we already know quite a bit about this next entry in the Creed franchise, including its setting, the looks and name of its protagonist, and more details thanks to a series of leaks.

And now the game’s release date has been seemingly leaked too, as images of an upcoming issue of Game Informer magazine have revealed that Ubisoft’s next Assassin’s Creed game will be shipping this year. As reported on GameSpot, the release date for Assassin’s Creed Origins is apparently October 27, 2017, and as is customary with high-profile releases such as this one, there will be several editions of the game for you to choose from.

One of these is a gold edition of the game which will supposedly be priced at $110 in the US, and feature other extras. Actually, the existence of this edition was revealed by yet another leak this week (a Target pre-order card had been doing the rounds ahead of E3), which confirmed the game’s Egypt setting and that it will apparently feature a bonus mission titled “Secrets of the First Pyramids”.

Ubisoft’s E3 press conference is only a couple of days away now though, as the French company’s showing is scheduled for Monday, June 12. So we will finally be able to confirm all this details next week (although those attending the show might as well pretend they don’t know and show a bit of surprise), in what could end up being one of the most exciting E3s in a very long time.
