If, like me, you’ve just got around to playing Assassin’s Creed Origins, pick up the pace a little. Ubisoft, the publisher of the Assassins Creed series, has confirmed Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is the next major game in the franchise.
Ubisoft confirmed Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is the successor to Origins in a post on social media website Twitter. The confirmation came just days after a Kotaku report claimed Ubisoft is taking the franchise to Ancient Greece after its much-talked-about stint in Egypt. Ubisoft public relations being the mavens of promotion that they are, confirmed the game’s move to Greece with a short teaser that shows one soldier kicking another off a cliff. It’s a reference to the movie 300. Well done Ubisoft.

We don’t know when Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s release date is. However, we do know that Ubisoft plans to reveal more about the game at E3 2018 on June 11th. Coincidentally, that’s the same conference I was talking about when I bet that Ubisoft wouldn’t reveal a new Assassin’s Creed until next year. E3 hasn’t started and already my E3 2018 Hopes and Dreams bracket is busted.
My hope is that Assassin’s Creed Odyssey launches sometime in 2019. Otherwise, it’s going to be a very busy fall gaming season.
