Assassin’s Creed has been in the news since last year owing to the success of Origins where Ubisoft brought the series back to the past to Ancient Egypt. We witnessed the birth of the Assassin’s Creed at the hands of the protagonist Bayek of Siwa and the game introduced Cleopatra, and Julius Caesar among other characters.
Now, the previous game ended with heavy hints that the next installment would likely be held in Ancient Greece, following the death of Julius Caesar. And recently Kotaku reported that the next Assassin’s Creed game would be called Odyssey and will be set in Ancient Greece.

And now following the rumor, Ubisoft has officially announced and confirmed the name and location proving the rumor to be true. The company has even released a GIF which has a distinct “This is Sparta” vibe and shows one man in red Roman warrior gear kick off another person off a cliff in blue getup.
According to Kotaku’s report, Odyssey is going to be a direct sequel to Origins and will be expanding on the game’s RPG theme with dialogue options and the ability to choose between a female or a male protagonist.
Ubisoft’s reveal promises more to come at E3 2018 and we expect a trailer of the game from the Ubisoft which is scheduled to be held on June 11. Ubisoft has been contacted by several publishers for a comment on the present teaser of the Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, but the Canadian gaming company did not immediately respond to those queries.
