Assassin's Creed Empire, which will see the reboot of the series with a new trilogy, is the upcoming instalment in the multi-million historical fiction/action franchise. It has been in preparation since 2015 as Ubisoft decided not to release an Assassin's Creed instalment in 2016, which was the first consecutive year it missed since the release of the first chapter in 2007.
The franchise has previously been set in various historically rich locations such as ancient Syria, medieval Europe, and Constantinople.
