Just a few hours after a leak of Ubisoft’s next Assassin’s Creed game was leaked online, Ubisoft took matters to its own hands and confirmed that the next entry in the AC franchise is Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
The official Assassin’s Creed Twitter account posted a short video about its announcement with an invitation for the upcoming E3 2018 coming in less than 2 weeks.

The logo signifies that the next AC in the franchise will take place in Ancient Greece. The short video shows one character forcefully kicking another off a cliff, somewhat a reference to the Spartans kicking Persian messengers into a deep well, as popularly referenced in 300 by Frank Miller.
For sure, we’ll see more of Odyssey during Ubisoft’s E3 keynote on June 11, 2018.
