Assassin’s Creed Origins appears to have been revealed a week before its expected E3 2017 unveiling, with a Target gift card seemingly outing the upcoming sequel.

It has long been claimed that Assassin’s Creed Origins, the rumored title for the upcoming Ubisoft game,¬†would take place in Ancient Egypt, and a leaked gift card set to be given to those who pre-order the game from Target appears to confirm this. The gift card, which can be viewed below, features the title of the game alongside its unnamed protagonist against a backdrop that includes the pyramids and the Sphinx.

It also states that those who reserve the game will receive a bonus mission titled ‘secrets of the first pyramids.’ It’s uncertain whether or not this DLC will be exclusive to those who pre-order the game from target. The card also states that the gold edition of the game will come with a deluxe pack, season pass and a steelbook case.


Though the run-up to E3 typically sees a wide variety of fake “leaks,” insiders are claiming that this gift card is the real deal. Liam Robertson, a notable insider known for his work with Unseen64, tweeted the following:

There’s no word yet on when Assassin’s Creed Origins’ release date, though we’ll find out more when E3 2017 rolls around next week.
