Assassin's Creed Odyssey Is the Next Entry, Ubisoft Confirms

It looks like Assassin's Creed Odyssey is the name of the new Assassin's Creed game from Ubisoft.

The Assassin's Creed video game franchise is heading to Ancient Greece.

And if that dude getting kicked off cliff seems recognisable, it is because it is basically just that bit from 300.

Oddly enough, last year's Assassin's Creed Origins was leaked in a similar way - with a promo T-shirt revealing the main character, logo and Ancient Egyptian setting a week before E3.

Beyond the tweet, information about the title's gameplay mechanics, storyline, and protagonist is scarce.

The report originates from French site JeuxVideoLive, and is confirmed by Kotaku.

Adding weight to the leak are photos of seemingly official merchandise sent to Kotaku, showing an Assassin's Creed Odyssey keychain with a Greek helmet attached.

Ubisoft would appear to have been spurred into revealing the existence of Assassin's Creed Odyssey by the same premature listing on Walmart Canada's website that revealed the existence of Bethesda's Rage 2. I've reached out to Ubisoft to inquire about the title, and absolutely do not expect a response-but if I get one, I'll let you know. Does that mean the annualisation of the franchise is back on? That changed this year, with very little being said about the next game in the series.

It's worth a read, even if you should take all of that with a grain of salt.

Other rumors, Kotaku reports, claim that Assassin's Creed: Odyssey will not take a full year off, like the break between Syndicate and Origins.
