Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey confirmed ahead of E3

Ubisoft has confirmed Assassin’s Creed’s next instalment will be set in ancient Greece.

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey has been confirmed by Ubisoft as the next instalment in its highly popular open-world franchise.

The sequel to last year’s fantastic Assassin’s Creed: Origins will be set in ancient Greece and apparently will contain more role-playing-game (RPG) elements than its predecessor.

Ubisoft’s made the announcement on Twitter, posting a short video of a man being kicked off a cliff followed by the caption, “see you at E3”. The footage is quite similar to a scene in the film 300, in which Spartan king Leonidas kicks a Persian into a pit.

It’s likely the publisher would have preferred to unveil the game at the E3 video games expo, which takes place in Los Angeles in the next couple of weeks. However, its hand was forced after a French gaming website JeuxVideo-Live posted a picture of a novelty keychain with an ancient Greek military helmet attached to it, in packaging that features the game’s logo.

While Ubisoft has confirmed that the game exists, it hasn’t released any further details. For the full scoop, fans and other interested parties are urged to watch Ubisoft’s E3 keynote on June 11th at 9pm local time on Twitch and Ubisoft’s official YouTube channel.
