Next Assassin’s Creed Game Taking Players to Ancient Greece
Retail leak sheds light on the next Assassin's Creed game.
The next Assassin’s Creed game has leaked out ahead of what would’ve likely been an E3 2018 debut for the series. The French gaming site Jeux Video received images of retail merchandise with what appears to be the title for the next game and a big hint as to were Ubisoft is taking the franchise.
The packaging for the merchandise revealed “Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey” as the next game. The key chain inside the packaging was a Spartan helmet. An image of an Assassin’s Creed t-shirt was also revealed that saw the Assassin’s Creed logo with another Spartan helmet inside.
The site calls Assassin’s Creed Odyssey a sequel to last year’s Assassin’s Creed Origins.
After taking a year off the Assassin’s Creed franchise came back strong in 2017. The return for the series was well-received so it’s highly likely that Ubisoft will return to pumping these out on a yearly basis after the brief breather.
Expect more details regarding Assassin’s Creed Odyssey once E3 press conferences kick off in June.
