Confirming rumors, Ubisoft has announced Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The announcement was made with a short teaser clip and a logo, where a helmet occupies the central spot that the Eye of Horus sat for Assassin’s Creed Origins. Ubisoft promises a more extended look for the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey in EA’s event E3 2018.
It all started with a rumor when a keychain named Assassin’s Creed Odyssey appeared and get viral.
It appeared to imply this game would take place in ancient Greece or Rome, which is confirmed by the teaser.
This would also appear to put Assassin’s Creed back on an annual schedule. After Assassin’s Creed Syndicate‘s release in 2015, Ubisoft notably took a year off to give the next franchise entry more time.
