Earlier today an image began to circulate around social media platforms such as Reddit, Twitter and Instagram, with internet users claiming that it was proof of an upcoming title called "Assassin's Creed Dominance", which would apparently be revealed at E3 2018.
We were immediately skeptical upon seeing the image, and decided to look further in to the matter.
After some investigating, we discovered that the image could be traced back to Assassin's Creed Viet Nam, who are a Fan Community based in the country.
After discovering this, we immediately contacted the community and waited for a response.
An admin later replied by telling us that the image was sent to them by an 'inside source', and that they didn't create it themselves.
More research uncovered that Assassin's Creed Viet Nam were the Community who shared several images and videos claiming to be from Assassin's Creed Empire back in 2017. This was proven to be fake by Youtuber LazerzZ and the Four Pillars Community, who traced the material back to admins from AC Viet Nam. Here is his video
Coincidentally, the image that was leaked back in 2017 happened just after the Ubisoft shareholders meeting, same as this image.
The Fan Community also claimed back then that the image was from an 'inside source', something which helped the image to circulate.
The leak was picked up by media outlets such as Games Radar and Playstation Lifestyle, who believed that the pyramid image was credible due to the name 'Peter Tran', who was based in Montreal (where a Ubisoft studio operates)

The image and videos were finally proven to be fake when Youtuber LazerZz and the Four Pillars Community researched the leak, and discovered that one of the admins for Assassin's Creed Viet Nam Fan Community had a high definition version of the pyramid image. A backwards search of the image found that it could be found nowhere else on the internet, proving that one of the community admins had created it.
Finally, we got the confirmation that we expected.
Another Admin from the Fan Community contacted us and told us that they had created the image, and that it had been created as fanart.
This proves that the Assassin's Creed Dominance image is fake, and that it was created by Admins from Assassin's Creed Viet Name Fan Community.
The Assassin's Creed Rumour Period is in full swing, and we thank our community members for remaining cautious at this time.
E3 begins on the 12th June 2018.
