Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey heads to Greece, if we believe this keychain

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey heads to Greece, if we believe this keychain

Ubisoft took to Twitter to tease the next instalment in its popular game franchise, Assassin's Creed - and it looks like it'll see players venture into ancient Greece.

A rumor surfaced in March on Comicbook.com indicating that the next Assassin's Creed game will be set in ancient Greece.

And if that dude getting kicked off cliff seems recognisable, it is because it is basically just that bit from 300. Now we might know even more, including what Assassin's Creed Odyssey will have to offer gameplay wise, and even when we might be getting it!

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has maintained a hard line against the North, calling for continued sanctions and a maximum-pressure campaign on Pyongyang.

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

Adding weight to the leak are photos of seemingly official merchandise sent to Kotaku, showing an Assassin's Creed Odyssey keychain with a Greek helmet attached. That's saying something, because many - including the author of this story - has given praise to Assassin's Creed Origins for breaking the mold and being the comeback title the franchise deserved. Kotaku reached out to Ubisoft for comment, but of course, they did not reply.

According to Kotaku's sources, Assassin's Creed: Odyssey is a "drastic departure" for the series. Meet Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Odyssey could release this fall, though Ubisoft could potentially release it early in 2019, thus avoiding the Fall rush of titles. Fortunately, that rumor doesn't rule out Assassin's Creed: Odyssey having a presence at E3 2018, especially after the Canadian Walmart leak. The builds reported on didn't have the Origins protagonists Bayek or Aya present, but that doesn't mean they won't make some kind of an appearance in the game.
