Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey teaser hints at an adventure in Greece

Following a leak earlier in the day, a clockwork like occurrence for the series, Ubisoft has officially confirmed that the next entry in the Assassin's Creed series is titled Assassin's Creed Odyssey and will take place against the backdrop of ancient Greece.

The series saw a departure from its relatively rigid format and annual release schedule in the wake of London-set Assassin's Creed Syndicate.

The clip shows what seems to be a Spartan-looking character kicking another solider off a cliff; an homage to Frank Miller's 300.

Beyond the tweet, information about the title's gameplay mechanics, storyline, and protagonist is scarce. The featured image promises more at this year's E3.

This morning, the French website JeuxVideoLive had a video up of a keychain.

According to the site (via Google Translate), one insider sent an Assassin's Creed Odyssey keychain in the form of a Spartan head. We've reached out to Ubisoft for comment and shall update you as soon as we get a response. Instead, it should launch before the end of the publisher's current fiscal year, which wraps up March 31, 2019. Personally, the high points of the series for me remain Assassin's Creed III and Black Flag, the latter of which brought the delightful possibility of sea-traveling to the series.

What do you think of the Assassin's Creed Odyssey reveal?

Ubisoft has confirmed that it is working on Assassin's Creed Odyssey. This window of release makes sense given that Origins took an extra year of development, but it does mean that players may be waiting a long time for an official confirmation.
