The next Assassin's Creed might take us to ancient Greece

Who remembers the silly season for Assassin’s Creed leaks that was this time last year? Because the rumour mill is spinning up again, and the latest 'news' is that we're heading to ancient Greece next.

Build a better Bayek with our Assassin's Creed Origins abilities guide.

That’s according to comicbook.com, who cite “several sources linked to Ubisoft”. Though they concede it’s essentially a rumour, they insist it is “well corroborated”, that the game entered full production at the start of 2017, and that it's confirmed for PC (no great surprise there).

In a call with investors in February, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said the publisher's focus for the Assassin's Creed franchise this year would be more DLC for Origins. While not explicitly ruling out a new game in 2018, it looks pretty certain that the franchise is now on a two-year cycle, so our Greek adventure is due in 2019.

This isn't exactly news. One of the many rumours we heard last year was that Assassin’s Creed Origins would start a trilogy, and that ancient Greece would be its next chapter. So while we haven't exactly learned anything new, those rumours have perhaps become a little more solid.

These aren't really leaks, moneys on it being controlled viral information release.

Yeah, it was said that last year's Origins leaks were deliberate (would explain why there were so many). If it were me I'd wait until this time next year to hype a game that's coming in 2019, though.

Yo, hell yes, I would be totally down for Greece with Bayek and Aya again.
