Assassin's Creed Odyssey has been confirmed, will bring more RPG mechanics

So far, it is clear that the game will take place in Greece and revolve around a certain Ancient Greek era.

The clip shows what seems to be a Spartan-looking character kicking another solider off a cliff; an homage to Frank Miller's 300.

This also just so happens to fall in line with previous whispers we've heard about the game, which also claim the new Assassin's Creed title will launch in 2019. Now we might know even more, including what Assassin's Creed Odyssey will have to offer gameplay wise, and even when we might be getting it!

The announcement comes hours after gaming site JeuxVideo posted a keychain showing the same logo and name for the now-verified "Assassin's Creed game".

Ubisoft did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

According to Kotaku's sources, Assassin's Creed: Odyssey is a "drastic departure" for the series.

Last year, the long-running Assassin's Creed franchise got a full over-haul with the release of Assassin's Creed Origins. Now, having taken 2017 off as well, Ubisoft is back this year with Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey has yet to be dated, but the sources expect it to arrive in Ubisoft's 2019 fiscal year, which ends on March 31st, 2019.

The game will also reportedly allow players to choose between a male and female protagonist, and although the game is supposedly a sequel to Origins, the game will introduce new heroes, instead of returning to Origins' Bayek and Aya.

Stay tuned for more as it develops.
