After Kotaku reported that the next Assassin's Creed game would be called Assassin's Creed Odyssey and was set in Ancient Greece, Ubisoft has now officially announced it Thursday. And of course, the title Odyssey infers some connection to Ancient Greece, specifically the Trojan War - which took place in the 12th century BCE. The video shows what appears to be a Spartan warrior kicking a Persian "Immortal" off a cliff. The announcement was made via the game's official Twitter account, as part of a five-second clip that ended with the logo and the words: "See you at E3". 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! French website Jeux Video Live has uncovered a key chain with the name Assassin's Creed: Odyssey that features the head of a spartan warrior. Ubisoft has not responded to requests for comments. This will be a big step for Assassin's Creed since playable female protagonists were quite absent from the series. Instead, it should launch before the end of the publisher's current fiscal year, which wraps up March 31, 2019. Does that mean the annualisation of the franchise is back on?
