Sources confirmed to Kotaku that this next entry in the franchise will take place in ancient Greece and that it will released before the end of Ubisoft's fiscal year 2019, which ends March 31 of next year.
And if that dude getting kicked off cliff seems recognisable, it is because it is basically just that bit from 300.
Ahead of E3, the setting of the next Assassin's Creed game appeared to leak. French website Jeux Video Live has uncovered a key chain with the name Assassin's Creed: Odyssey that features the head of a spartan warrior. The keychain container also proudly displays Assassin's Creed: Odyssey beneath a unique symbol, which contains another helmet shown beneath a sharply-pointed Assassin symbol.
Ubisoft did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The packaging of the keychain said Assassin's Creed Odyssey and so we started hearing rumors that this is the next game in the Assassin's Creed series. If true, the RPG elements of the new game will go through the roof making it the most immersive title to date.
[Update] Kotaku revealed some additional information on Assassin's Creed Odyssey.
According to Kotaku's sources, Assassin's Creed: Odyssey is a "drastic departure" for the series.
As with all rumors, take this with the proverbial grain of salt. Odyssey could release this fall, though Ubisoft could potentially release it early in 2019, thus avoiding the Fall rush of titles.
