Assassin’s Creed has been one of the staples in gaming ever since the original’s debut way back in 2007. Since then, there’s been a steady stream of new main entry Assassin’s Creed games every year, except in the year leading up to 2018’s Origins: the first time the series took a hiatus for some much needed time to reinvent itself. Whether or not it succeeded, though, is another matter entirely.
That said, a new entry in the series was always to be expected, and a 5-second teaser has already been released, leading up to an almost certain full E3 reveal. The games’ title, Odyssey, alongside the iconography of a Spartan helmet, likely places the game in the 6th to 4th century BCE, in Greece. A parallelism has been made – and really must be – between the games’ title and Homer’s titular “The Odyssey”, an epic recounting the events following king Odysseus’ return to Ithaca following the fall of Troy.
dyssey has been described by insiders as straying even further from the series’ tried, true, and somewhat tiring (as of now) formula, and that the game should be coming out during Ubisoft’s 2019 fiscal year – which ends on March 31st, 2019. this likely means that should no delays occur, the game will see the light of Greece’s sun somewhat around the usual Fall release for the series.
