Assassin's Creed Odyssey officially announced by Ubisoft

Assassin's Creed Odyssey officially announced by Ubisoft

This is a not-so-subtle nod to the infamous 300 "THIS. IS". 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!

One of my favorite parts of Assassin's Creed: Origins was exploring the city of Alexandria. Which - along with the name - suggests the game will be set in Ancient Greece. It appears Zeus has heard my desires.

Zinedine Zidane stuns Real Madrid by stepping down as coach
As assistant to Carlo Ancelotti , he was on the bench in Lisbon when Madrid secured La Decima in 2014. Zidane said all of this in a hastily organised press conference.

According to the site (via Google Translate), one insider sent an Assassin's Creed Odyssey keychain in the form of a Spartan head. Kotaku also received a different picture of the same keychain. Dialogue options, for example, will feature for the first time, giving you the chance to role-play your assassins instead of just being an onlooker. The builds reported on didn't have the Origins protagonists Bayek or Aya present, but that doesn't mean they won't make some kind of an appearance in the game.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is also expected to launch before the end of the current Ubisoft fiscal year, which wraps up n March 2019.

White House slaps 25% tariff on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods
Details of the investment and export controls will be announced by June 30 and the final tariff list will be published by June 15. The US delegation will be led by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, who is set to arrive in China on Saturday.

[Update] Kotaku revealed some additional information on Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

With that in mind, it would be too early for Ubisoft to announce the game at this E3 if the plan is to release it in holiday 2019, so it's hard to say.

Dead man Walking. Andrew Lincoln leaving hit show
In fact, it's reported that the show's focal character will only appear in six episodes of the new season. When writers are forced to change the narrative of a series because an actor leaves, the show suffers.

Other rumors, Kotaku reports, claim that Assassin's Creed: Odyssey will not take a full year off, like the break between Syndicate and Origins. E3 is nearly here, so expect a full reveal during the big show.
