"Assassin's Creed Odyssey" Announced By UbiSoft

Just hours after a leaked keyring set the internet ablaze, Ubisoft has confirmed that Assassin's Creed Odyssey is indeed the next game in the time-hopping action-adventure series.

The five-second-long video posted on the game's Twitter account features one character kicking another off a cliff, in a scene resembling an episode from Zack Snyder's movie "300", and the new game's title followed by a message: "See you at E3". In the trailer, one character kicks another off a cliff in a attractive setting that looks to be placed on the Mediterranean.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is rumoured to be the name of the next Assassin's Creed game, and it's once again reportedly set in Greece.

Beyond the tweet, information about the title's gameplay mechanics, storyline, and protagonist is scarce. This is the 13th time an Assassin's Creed game has been leaked.

Among the biggest PC games we know will be shown at E3 2018 are EA's shared-world shooter Anthem and Ubisoft's anticipated sequel The Division 2. Ubisoft hasn't yet commented on the Odyssey reports, but given Schreier's credibility and the franchise's history of leaks, it's likely that these latest rumblings will pan out.

Multiple sources speaking to Kotaku claim that Odyssey will introduce dialogue options, which will be a first for an Assassin's Creed game. While Origins was a departure from the series' roots, Odyssey will apparently push it even further into RPG territory.

It looks like Assassin's Creed will be reverting back to its yearly release schedule.

We'll get some idea of what, and how new, Odyssey is - and when it'll be launching - at this year's E3 expo this month.
