Ubisoft has confirmed that it is working on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
So far, all we know for sure about the next game in the much-loved historical action-adventure franchise is its name. The French publisher confirmed its existence with a tweet consisting of a short teaser video and the words: “See you at E3!”
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.
The teaser video shows a character in a Spartan-style helmet kicking another similarly attired character off a cliff. Which – along with the name – suggests the game will be set in Ancient Greece. An anonymous 4Chan user posted a number of alleged details about the game, which are summarised in this Reddit post. If those details are to be believed, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will indeed take place in Ancient Greece, with Assassin’s Creed: Origins’ Bayek and Aya filling a similar story role to the one occupied by Altair in Assassin’s Creed II. And, as in Assassin’s Creed: Origins, naval battles will feature prominently.
No doubt Ubisoft, as it promised on Twitter, will properly reveal Assassin’s Creed Odyssey at the imminent E3 Show. Naturally, we’ll bring you all the details as they unfold.
