Earlier today, French Site JeuxVideoLive (and confirmed by Kotaku), reported that the next game in the Assassin’s Creed franchise will be called Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey. The game will apparently take place in Ancient Egypt, and further expand on gameplay mechanics introduced in Assassin’s Creed: Origins.
In the sequel, players will be able to choose their character’s gender and even use dialogue options.
While Origins added Witcher-like RPG elements, Odyssey will take things even further, those people said, bringing dialogue options to the series for the first time. 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.
Ubisoft has now announced that Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey is a real game with a short clip showing an Assassin kicking an enemy over the edge of a cliff.
