If this isn't from the next Assassin's Creed game, what IS it?

Supposed non-Assassin's Creed 3 art of pyramid-backed assassin has us oh so confused

TODO alt text

Ubisoft has posted some lush artwork on itstwitter accountwhile dropping vague hints about a %26ldquo;secret%26rdquo; project involving the Assassin%26rsquo;s Creed franchise. The picture shows off an assassin chilling out in front of the Great Pyramids. Judging from the scene %26ndash; and the whole %26ldquo;sporting a severed head in one hand and what looks a hell of a lot like a larger version of the hidden blade all bloodied in the other%26rdquo; vibe %26ndash; he appears to have just finished a job.

To make matters even screwier, an Ubisoft spokespersontold CVGthat the image is from a %26ldquo;non-game related project.%26rdquo; We%26rsquo;re keeping our fingers crossed that this supposed spokesperson is actually an imposter who gagged and kidnapped the original spokesperson who was going to tell us that this is an Assassin%26rsquo;s Creed 3 image. Running around a historically accurate depiction of ancient Egypt would be, for lack of better words, utterly badass. If he isn%26rsquo;t, then %26ldquo;non-game related%26rdquo; could mean, what? A movie? A comic? An album cover for RZA?

What are your thoughts?
