New Assassin’s Creed game screenshot gets apparently leaked

Before we begin this article, take this with a grain of salt.

A screenshot is currently doing the rounds of the internet which apparently belongs to the next Assassin’s Creed game codednamed AC: Empires.

The screenshot originated at Reddit and has got the rumour mills churning, especially as the shield that the character is carrying on his back seems to feature an Assassin’s logo. It looks real enough to merit its own thread over at NeoGAF, where people are discussing every detail.

However, some readers are speculating that this screenshot might also belong to a now canned Prince of Persia game.

The new Assassin’s Creed is rumored to be set in Egype and the screenshot seems to feature a protagonist who is inside a Pyramid, hence adding more fuel to the fire.

Could this be a genuine leak or another elaborate hoax? There are no clear answers yet.
