Not many games can boast that they’ve been around for more than a decade, but not Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed! The open-world game, which puts in control of an assassin in numerous ancient settings, have been around since the release of the first game in November of 2007.
Since then, the franchise has seen sequels upon sequels released almost every year, transporting players to the Italian Renaissance, French Revolution, Colonial Era, Victorian Era, and in the recently released Assassin’s Creed Origins, Ptolemaic Egypt.
With the success of Assassin’s Creed Origins, many players were left wondering when they could expect to lay their grubby hands on the next Assassin’s Creed game, and it appears, the wait may not be as long after all.
A video posted on YouTube by video game reporter, Jorraptor revealed that someone had leaked details on what could potentially be the next title in the AC franchise. Of course, these info may or may not be true, but Jorraptor goes on to say that in the past, leaks such as this one did tell some truths.
Here’s what we know from the leak. Again, take this with a grain of salt…
- The new Assassin’s Creed game will be titled Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
- It’ll be set in ancient Greece during the Flavian Dynasty
- There’ll be 2 playable characters, each with intersecting but different stories. Only one character will be playable in each play through
- Naval exploration and combat return in a big way
- Assassin’s Creed Unity style customisation with major improvements
- Social stealth returns (think blending in with NPC crowds)
- Return of Brotherhood and Renovation systems
- Upgraded crafting system
- Fight mythical beasts and legendary ship battles
- Return of smoke bombs and weapon wheel
Perhaps the most exciting part about this leak is the fact that this yet-to-be-confirmed title is set to be released this year (2018). To that, Jorraptor states that AC Odyssey (or whatever it’s going be called) is made by the team behind Assassin’s Creed Unity (released in 2014), which means it would have been in development for at least four years, making a 2018 release date plausible.
