‘Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’ Revealed, More Details at E3

See you at E3!

One of my favorite parts of Assassin's Creed: Origins was exploring the city of Alexandria.

Well, with the cat out of the bag, it seems Ubisoft has made a decision to just go ahead and confirm Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

Some trade experts said the tariff announcement is likely meant to strengthen Ross's hand. The Dow Jones industrial average was down more than 400 points, or 1.6%, as of 12:30 p.m.

A summary of the information provided by the 4Chan user can be seen on Reddit, where it also talks about the game's locations, gameplay, and some of what it's borrowing from Origins. This year's game is called "Assassin's Creed Odyssey" and will take place in ancient Greece. Although the previously-annualised series had skipped 2016 in the wake of 2014's disappointing Assassin's Creed: Unity, it's likely that this one will be out this spring, returning to the yearly schedule for which the popular franchise has always been known.

No doubt Ubisoft, as it promised on Twitter, will properly reveal Assassin's Creed Odyssey at the imminent E3 Show. Personally, the high points of the series for me remain Assassin's Creed III and Black Flag, the latter of which brought the delightful possibility of sea-traveling to the series. The report didn't give us a name, but it talked about a Greek setting. They also claim that players will be able to choose male or female characters. While Origins was a departure from the series' roots, Odyssey will apparently push it even further into RPG territory.

Two of those sources confirmed that Odyssey will be out during Ubisoft's 2019 fiscal year, which ends on 31 March 2019. This leaves the game at a likely Fall 2018 launch, which isn't surprising but might hurt the series, which seems to be returning to its annual title schedule.
