Update: Ubisoft has confirmed Assassin's Creed Odyssey on Twitter today after this morning's leak. The company posted a short video of what looks like a Spartan soldier kicking someone off a cliff (similar to the famous scene in the film 300). Ubisoft also confirmed the game will be at E3. We will have more details about the game for you by then.
A French video game website seemingly leaked the next Assassin's Creed game from Ubisoft thanks to a photo the site obtained of what looks like official merchandise related to the game. The new franchise sequel will apparently be called Assassin's Creed Odyssey and will be a sequel to Assassin's Creed Origins starring Bayek.
Translating the text from French website Jeuxvideo-live, the site claims the information comes from a leaker named Articblue, who's had reliable information in the past, as well as information obtained by the site's own editors. The site claims that Odyssey is a "sequel" to Assassin's Creed Origins set in ancient Greece, with Bayek reprising his role as the lead hero. This means Bayek joins Ezio as a recurring hero in the Assassin's Creed franchise.
Jeuxvideo-live even included a photo of a keychain with a Spartan Helmet dongle with the game's name and logo on the packaging.
Rumors of the next Assassin Creed's Ancient Greece setting have been swirling around for some time, and while there's still no official confirmation from Ubisoft, the news today tracks with the recent rumors. We expect Ubisoft will announce or tease the next Assassin's Creed game at its press conference at E3 this year.
