Ubisoft has just confirmed the next entry in the Assassin’s Creed franchise ahead of this year’s E3. At this rate, we might just as well start E3 early.

We were all expecting a new Assassin’s Creed game to be announced at E3 thanks to the Walmart Canada leak earlier last month. Now, Ubisoft has confirmed that a new game is in development called Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. As expected, Ubisoft has revealed very little beyond the games logo and title but what we can gather, thanks to the new logo and a leaked image of a keychain is that the new game will take place in ancient Greece.
The Assassin’s Creed Odessy logo features an image of a Greek-style helmet, the same type of a helmet the leaked image of an Assasin’s Creed Odessy keychain has. The image leaked ahead of the Ubisoft announcement, via French video game site jeuxvideo-live.com with Kotaku posting an image of the keychain on their site from a different source.
Kotaku also states that sources have revealed that the game will take the RPG elements we saw in Assassin’s Creed Origins and further build on them. It is rumoured that the new game will include dialogue options for the first time and that you will be able to choose a male or female protagonist which you will be able to possibly customize.
It’s an interesting setting with loads of potential and, with Ubisoft perfectly updating the franchise’s formula with Origins, I can’t wait to see how they build and expand on the previous game’s success. Ubisoft has stated that we can expect more about the Assassin’s Creed game at E3 2018.
