A listing for Assassin's Creed: Empire has appeared on a Swiss retailer's website and points to an October 2017 release for Ubisoft's next instalment in the Assassin's Creed franchise. Based on a recent rumors, the game will not only be released on PS4 and Xbox One, but Ubisoft will allegedly also be releasing the next Assassin's Creed installment on the Nintendo Switch.
It's possible of course this is just speculation on the retailer's part, a bid to bring in pre-orders for the next Assassin's Creed game, without necessarily knowing anything about it.
Various sources have implied that Assassin's Creed: Empire will be taking place in Egypt, an area of the world that hasn't been covered in previous games. It's no secret that retailers know about games quite a while before release, as we saw with Target leaking Shadow of War last month.

JC Penney lists the 138 stores it is planning to close
Liquidation sales at the 138 stores will start next month, and most of the stores will be shut by mid-June, the company said. That class will help employees with writing resumes, filling out applications, answering interview questions and more.
With each passing week, the rumor about the not yet announced Assassin's Creed Empire, the (alleged) next title in the series, are becoming more insistent and numerous.
As with any leak, take it with a grain of salt until we have official confirmation from Ubisoft.
Ancient Egypt also allows Ubisoft a significant amount of freedom; there's very little documentation of major events that far back, so in essence the game can allow players to do nearly anything they want and call it "history".
