The highly anticipated "Assassin's Creed" follow-up might have been delayed up to 2017. There are also rumors that the franchise might take place in Egypt.

According to Tech Times, Ubisoft has released a new sequel for the popular action-adventure game once a year, since 2009's "Assassin's Creed II." Ubisoft has a tight schedule in order to maintain the franchise. However, many fans of the game have complained that the previous sequels have not been up to par.

Should rumors be believed, Ubisoft is not keeping up with the yearly schedule this year, and will instead push the next installment to 2017. As of now, the sequel has a working title of "Assassin's Creed Empire."

Kotaku also says that the next installment may very well be set in an all new location -- Egypt. Many gamers were disappointed in 2014's "Assassin's Cred Unity," and they believe that releasing the game in 2017 might give the company ample time for developing the game and storyline.

"Assassin's Creed Unity" was notably buggy and full of glitches, with many fans of the game going on to post hilarious video montages on YouTube.

Months ago, the website reported that the game might take place in Ancient Rome, as suggested by the working title, but that might have changed. There was also some speculation that the game will take place in Ancient Greece, another era where the word "Empire" would be most appropriate. Ubisoft might be taking the time to polish the game and not make another other faux pas. This has already been a big trend for Ubisoft, who seems to have suffered from a burnout in the past years.

Ubisoft also recently registered its official website at the domain "assassinscreedcollection.com." This might mean a compilation of the previous Assassin's Creed installments, which will serve as a good solution to those suffering from Assassin's Cred "drought." 

"We can't comment on rumor or speculation. We're always happy when players are excited about our games, past, present and future. In the meantime, we hope that the latest images from the Assassin's Creed movie set will keep fans of the franchise happy and eager to find out more!" said the company in an official statement with Comicbook.com

Michael Fassbender is due to star in the "Assassin's Creed" movie, which is out on December 21, 2016. "Watch Dogs 2" is also out this year and will reportedly be set in San Francisco.
