Assassin's Creed: Odyssey teaser suggests ancient Greek setting

Adjust Comment Print

The announcement was made via the game's official Twitter account, as part of a five-second clip that ended with the logo and the words: "See you at E3". And, as in Assassin's Creed: Origins, naval battles will feature prominently. This was partly so Ubisoft could take its time with the next release and ensure it would be worthwhile, but also partly so they could wait and see how the Assassin's Creed movie would come together and decide if there needed to be any significant tie-ins. We can also look forward to learning about the big fall update Bungie has planned for Destiny 2 and finding out what game Remedy has been working on since shipping Quantum Break in 2016.

Between that, the visual cues in the announcement thumbnail, and a report from French outlet JeuxvideoLive, it's nearly certain that the next AC title will be set in Greece.

Ubisoft has confirmed that it will reveal a new Assassin's Creed game at E3 in 10 days time. This year's game is called "Assassin's Creed Odyssey" and will take place in ancient Greece. The report didn't give us a name, but it talked about a Greek setting. Not only that, but you'll have a choice of a male or female protagonist.

Multiple sources speaking to Kotaku claim that Odyssey will introduce dialogue options, which will be a first for an Assassin's Creed game.

As for when the game is expected to release, two sources peg Assassin's Creed Odyssey for Ubisoft's financial year 2019, meaning a possible release before 31st March next year.

The game has had little revealed about it, except the confirmation of its existence and the rumors that it will be a sequel to last year's Assassin's Creed Origins. If this is true, it means the series is going back to an annual schedule.
