Why Ubisoft's Osiris is an Assassin's Creed Game Set in Egypt

GameVerb reports that Ubisoft has already announced their new next-generation game called Watch Dogs and it is unlikely that "Osiris" is a new IP. So, how likely is it we'll see yet another new IP from Ubisoft coming to current-gen and next-generation consoles? Originally thought to be a reboot of Prince of Persia, it appears now it is more likely a new Assassin's Creed game called "Assassin's Creed: Osiris."
