Earlier this year, there were rumors circulating that suggested that the next game in the Assassin's Creed series will be set in Greece. And now, an image of what seems to be a promotional keychain for the next game has surfaced via the French website JeuxVideo. If legitimate, the packaging supposedly reveals the game's name to be Assassin's Creed Odyssey.
Beyond that, the logo and the Greek helmet hanging at the end of the chain is adding further evidence to the theory of an Ancient Greece-set game, which will apparently be a direct sequel to Origins.
As always, take these rumors with a pinch of salt, and since E3 is just around the corner, we probably won't have to wait much longer to see if these reports have any merit to them. Also, even if Odyssey was to be announced next month at Ubisoft's conference, we could still see it be a 2019 release, as the earlier report also suggested that the company will be sticking to a two-year gap between Assassin's Creed games going forward.
Update: Ubisoft has confirmed the existence of Assassin's Creed Odyssey, stating that it will be shown off at E3.
