Assassin’s Creed Odyssey confirmed by Ubisoft following leak

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey confirmed by Ubisoft following leak

After Kotaku reported that the next Assassin's Creed game would be called Assassin's Creed Odyssey and was set in Ancient Greece, Ubisoft has now officially announced it Thursday.

The most recent entry in the franchise was Assassin's Creed Origins, released a year ago, which dialed the events of the game all the way back to Egypt during the Ptolemaic period (49-47 BC). The style of the accessory seems to indicate the next game will take place in Greece. Perhaps they've figured out how to keep iterating on the formula year on year, but we'll have to wait and see how drastic the changes are at E3. Origins felt like a breath of fresh air, with enough changes to the core gameplay loop to make Assassin's Creed feel compelling again.

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.

Roseanne Barr: "I'm Not a Racist, Just an Idiot"
On Wednesday, Barr tweeted: "I just wish ABC had not thrown two of the greatest actors in the world out with me-Laurie and John". Barr, who is white, tweeted Tuesday that Jarrett is a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the "Planet of the Apes ".

The game will reportedly introduce some new features to the franchise, including dialogue options. The game is said to be developed by the Unity team, and will bring back the extensive character customisation seen in that game. Nearly every mainline game in the franchise has been prematurely revealed through merchandise, gameplay images or the like.

This also just so happens to fall in line with previous whispers we've heard about the game, which also claim the new Assassin's Creed title will launch in 2019.

It's worth a read, even if you should take all of that with a grain of salt.
