After traversing to Egypt in Assassin’s Creed Origins, it looks like the next destination in the franchise will be none other than Greece. Ubisoft has officially announced via a tweet that the new game will be called Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, accompanied with a 5-second teaser and a curt remark promising more details at E3.

The trailer replicates an all-too-familiar scene famously depicted in the film 300 – King Leonidas kicking a Persian messenger into a deep well, right after yelling “THIS IS SPARTA!” of course.
Looks like we’re heading way back to Ancient Greece and the time of the Spartans for the next Assassin’s Creed instalment, and such a rich history with so many famous figures and iconic architecture to draw from could make for an exciting AC indeed.
Ubisoft’s reveal was a rather hasty affair, as less than a day before their tweet, French video game news site JeuxVideo-Live posted a picture of a keychain of King Leonidas’ helmet, with the packaging bearing the now-official Assassin’s Creed Odyssey logo.
Way to quickly put the rumours to rest, Ubisoft. Look out for more information on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey during E3, and check out our E3 Press Conference Guide with timings for those watching in Singapore.
