Report: Leaked Reservation Card Confirms Assassin's Creed Origins

NeoGAF user ASilentProtagonist posted a photo of a reservation card from Target decorated with the Assassin's Creed Origins logo. The card details additional content included in the "Gold Edition" of Assassin's Creed Origins, such as a mission titled "Secrets of the First Pyramids" as a pre-order bonus (why not "Origins of the First Pyramids?" Parallelism, Ubisoft! Parallelism!), a steelbook collector's item, and a season pass.

Rumors of Assassin's Creed Origins began in earnest last month, when a Reddit user rumored to be a Ubisoft employee posted a thread hinting that the next entry in the series would be a prequel set in Egypt. While Assassin's Creed Origins shouldn't be taken as a done deal until Ubisoft's E3 press conference (scheduled for Monday, June 12 at 1 p.m. PDT / 4 p.m. EDT), the photo on top of the earlier leak do point to that premise panning out.

Whether the photo is fake—unlikely at this point—or not, Ubisoft's generating plenty of buzz around the next Assassin's Creed. The series took a year off in 2016 following lukewarm reception to Assassin's Creed Unity. That means the industry has its collective eye trained on what Ubisoft has in store for this year's entry, which fans hope will mark a return to form.
