and is set in the time of Ancient Greece.
The report originates from French site JeuxVideoLive, and is confirmed by Kotaku.
Originally leaked by JeuxVideo, a piece of collectible merchandise - a keychain with a Roman or Greek helmet - is shown, giving credence to the ideas of an Assassin's Creed: Origins sequel. Kotaku also received a different picture of the same keychain.
According to Kotaku's sources, Assassin's Creed: Odyssey is a "drastic departure" for the series. If true, the RPG elements of the new game will go through the roof making it the most immersive title to date. Dialogue options, for example, will feature for the first time, giving you the chance to role-play your assassins instead of just being an onlooker. If this is true, it means the series is going back to an annual schedule.
KitGuru Says: I really enjoyed Assassin's Creed Origins, so I already have high hopes for Odyssey. That's why Ubisoft took a year off to work on Origins, and it paid off, with the Egyptian-themed game meeting with some of the strongest reviews in the franchise.
It's worth a read, even if you should take all of that with a grain of salt.
Last year, the long-running Assassin's Creed franchise got a full over-haul with the release of Assassin's Creed Origins. E3 is nearly here, so expect a full reveal during the big show.
