A report has stated that the next Assassin’s Creed game is going to be set in Ancient Greece.
Assassin’s Creed has been going for 11 years now. The franchise had taken us to so many different time periods, each interesting in their own right. From Renaissance Italy to the American Civil War to pirate laden high seas and most recently Ancient Egypt, the series continues to find exciting new worlds and time periods to drop us into. There is always something exciting about the speculation of where we might be headed off to next.
Well, if this report is to believed, then we might know just where that is. According to a report by insider Liam Robertson on ComicBook.com, the series is set to go to Ancient Greece next for a title set to release in 2019. The report claims that Assassin’s Creed Origins was possibly going to have a portion set in Greece, but it was cut and held back for the title after the latest release. While there have been some hints that we might be looking at next-gen hardware in 2019 or 2020, the game is apparently currently being built for the PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One.
Of course, this is only a report so it is nowhere near confirmation but Robertson has an excellent track record with these kinds of stories. Also, Ancient Greece seems like one of the glaring omissions from the Assassin’s Creed library. Considering the links it could have to Origins too, which was a big return to form for the franchise, I can definitely see some cool interplay. We will have to wait and see if this pans out, but certainly fun to mull over none the less.
