Guessing it'll be a two year gap and release at the end of next year.
I still need to play Origins, and I saw a rumour that this was a sequel and you play as Bayek, which would be nice since I think the reason everyone likes Ezio the best is that we got to spend more time and learn more about him. Then again I won't really complain if it's a new person, either way Ancient Greece is pretty cool... not as cool as what everyone has wanted for ages, Fuedal Japan, but still cool.
A report from earlier today, which is probably why they confirmed it now, said there would be a new protagonist where you could choose the gender of the character. I hope you are right though, i'd rather play as a defined character like Bayek(or even Aya) than some avatar-character
Nothing to see here, move along
