Ubisoft confirms Assassin's Creed Odyssey, releases a teaser trailer

Adjust Comment Print

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. This is a not-so-subtle nod to the infamous 300 "THIS. IS". We'll likely see a lot more at E3.

Almost two months ago, one report suggested that Ubisoft's next entry in the Assassin's Creed has been in development since as early as 2017. The keyring in question seemed to confirm the Greek setting for the game, which had been part of rumours dating back to January. It appears Zeus has heard my desires. The leak originally came from upcoming Assassin's Creed merchandise, which was spotted by French site, JeuxVideoLive. Kotaku also received a different picture of the same keychain. Ubisoft has not responded to requests for comments. If true, the RPG elements of the new game will go through the roof making it the most immersive title to date. The game is expected to have dialogue choices, which would be a first for the series.

That would mean it'd need to release before the end of March 2019, suggesting Ubisoft are returning the series to an yearly release schedule. Meet Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

The only reason Karthik made it to this year's national competition was through a wildcard program that was just instituted. Rohan said his goal is to make it into the top-10 finalists tonight. "I guess it gave me a little more confidence".

As with all rumors, take this with the proverbial grain of salt.

A few days ago, an anonymous 4Chan user posted a big list of details about the game, also calling it Assassin's Creed Odyssey. E3 is nearly here, so expect a full reveal during the big show. To be able to take that into the world of Assassin's Creed would be a monumental to Ubisoft staple.

Stay tuned for more as it develops. You know the salty drill by now, folks.
