The rumours are abuzz this morning with multiple sources and reports now claiming that the next game in the Assassin’s Creed franchise will be Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The game is reported to be set in Ancient Greece as a sequel to last year’s Assassin’s Creed Origins.
The leaks begun with a French website, JeuxVideoLive, which posted an image of an Assassin’s Creed Odyssey keychain shown above. The leaks have then been reaffirmed with multiple sources coming out of places like Kotaku. The rumours of an Assassin’s Creed game set in Ancient Greece have been dating back to the start of this year.
Whilst Ubisoft had previously skipped a year before releasing Assassin’s Creed Origins, the rumours are now suggesting that they are back to their yearly cycle with Odyssey releasing towards the end of this year. The game, much like Origins, is said to be a departure from the rest of the Assassin’s Creed series. Reaffirming that Ubisoft has decided to take the franchise in a new direction.
The game is also reported to have a male and female playable character, brand new ones to the series. As with all leaks there is absolutely no guarantee that any of this is true, although when we see multiple sources all confirming the same rumours, there tends to be at least a grain of truth. Undoubtedly we will hear more at E3 this year, which is just around the corner.
