Assassin's Creed 3 set in Egypt?

Ubisoft teases with mysterious Creed-like artwork

A mysterious Ubisoft Twitter post is seemingly teasing an Egypt setting for Assassin's Creed 3.

UPDATE: Ubisoft's told us this is "non-game related".

ORIGINAL STORY: 'UbiWorkshop' posted a picture of a man in Assassin's Creed style get up, with an Eagle flying behind him, standing in front of Egyptian pyramids.


And if that wasn't enough there's also an emblem in the background displaying the letters 'AC'.

A second post clarified, "Oh, and before you ask, this has nothing to do with Assassin's Creed Brotherhood".

UbiWorkshop is quite clearly an official affiliate and is even included in a 'related' Twitter list compiled by Ubisoft itself. So unless it's a pretty cruel gag on Ubisoft's part, this is a strong hint that towards the third Assassin's Creed incarnation and where it might take place.

We'll drop Ubisoft a line.

As for news that does have something to do with Brotherhood, we brought you details on Assassin's Creed Brotherhood multiplayer earlier today.
