Assassin’s Creed Odyssey confirmed by Ubisoft following leak

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey leaks: is this the sequel to Origins?

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey leaks: is this the sequel to Origins?

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is the next game in Ubisoft's stealthy series, with the ancient Greek setting confirmed yesterday after a series of rumours and leaks over the past few weeks.

Is Bethesda Teasing A New Fallout Game?
If the Fallout: 76 reports are accurate, it's going to be a massive departure for the franchise. Is this game the fifth installment of the Fallout series, or is it something else?

Something to look forward to: Two separate sources sent two different news outlets photos of a Spartan helmet keychain in packaging printed with title art reading, "Assassin's Creed Odyssey". 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 leak originally came from upcoming Assassin's Creed merchandise, which was spotted by French site, JeuxVideoLive. Ubisoft has not responded to requests for comments. After a series of progressively less-interesting yearly instalments that did little to push the series forward, Origins finally gave the game the full-on reboot it deserved. You'll be able to play as either a male or a female protagonist, although the builds we've heard about did not feature Origins' main characters Bayek or Aya, but new heroes. This window of release makes sense given that Origins took an extra year of development, but it does mean that players may be waiting a long time for an official confirmation.

Maria Sharapova should be afraid only of Serena Williams, says Chris Evert
Williams had to be awarded a wildcard to the French Open after taking most of 2017 off to give birth to her first child. World number one Simona Halep will start her latest bid for an elusive Grand Slam title against Alison Riske of the US.

As with all rumors, take this with the proverbial grain of salt. Assassin's Creed has always been a fall series, so unless some of those drastic changes include shifting the release window, we can probably expect a release in late 2018. E3 is nearly here, so expect a full reveal during the big show.
