Next Assassin's Creed Could Be Set in Greece, Out 2019 - Report

Richard Walker

Assassin's Creed will apparently be sticking to its two-year development cycle, and will reportedly be taking the series to Greece, which seems like a logical way to follow Assassin's Creed Origins, which featured elements of Grecian culture in its rendition of Ancient Egypt.

The next rumoured Assassin's Creed location comes via a "well-corroborated" source reporting to Comic Book (via VideoGamer), which also states that the game has already been in full-scale production since the beginning of 2017. The same source also outed Assassin's Creed Origins when it was codenamed Assassin's Creed Empire, so this could be credible.

Of the locations and time periods touted for the next Assassin's Creed, Greece probably wouldn't be everyone's first guess, despite previous mumblings abound that it could well be the next setting. Some hints at a subsequent location for a new Assassin's Creed game had been served up in a recent survey, which suggested periods from feudal Japan to the Mongol Invasions and the Black Death.

We'll have more on the next Assassin's Creed title - whatever it may be - when new info crops up. Until then, you can revisit Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered from today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

  • I'm guessing it will take place in the Peloponessian Wars. Incorporating Alexander the Great into the game would be pretty cool too (maybe as a dlc?). It's going to look incredible when you can visit the Wonders - Colossus at Rhodes, the Oracle at Delphi, etc.
  • Seems like an incredibly safe choice to set it around the Mediterranean yet again. Other parts of the globe have a rich cultural heritage as well Ubisoft!
  • Feel free to remaster III, Liberation (again), and OG Asscreed in the meantime fellas.
  • i love the assassins creed games but im not gonna buy another one unless they get rid of that stupid ass leveling system i played origins for about 35 hours and i would say 20 of that was grinding to get the required level to start a story mission
  • Greece? So does this take place right after Origins? Because I thought the point of calling Origins 'Origins' was because it was the start of everything? Setting the next one in Greece might be pushing it time wise.
  • Origins had so much Greek history already. And why go further back when it was pretty obvious that Bayek started the Assassins?
  • @ OG version was so boring and lifeless. I don't think it would hold up well to the newer AC games.
  • Two year dev cycle? I'm pretty sure there are still multiple dev teams working on AC
  • Assassins Creed : Jacobite Revolution anyone? Something set in that era or William Wallace, Rob Roy, Robert the Bruce, Mary Queen of Scots eras?....plenty of history in Scotland to explore.
  • I would just like to stick with Bayek and Layla. We need another set of games with a consistent protagonist. Ezio wouldn't be nearly as revered if we didn't have Brotherhood and Revelations. People love him because they got to know him over the course of a few games. Bayek doesn't even need a trilogy. He just needs more than one game's worth of a story. And keep Layla. Much as I don't like the present day stuff anymore, it's only detrimental to not have a Desmond-like character to hold things down.
  • Well it's better to keep this sequel close to Origins. It's a new era for the series and Origins was a fresh breath of air after the yearless release of a AC game. Ubisoft is cracking down on the series willing to change the series for better. Having the next game take place right after Origins time period wise helps the series than people wanting to jump back and forth with time periods all over the globe. It be like the gap between AC Revelations and AC3 that made no sense according to the modern day storyline.
  • @10 Ezio was great because of ACII, Brotherhood was a forgettable take on his middle ages and Revelations went out its way to actively eliminate his importance to the series. @3 Really? III was fucking terrible, the worst entry in the series. Liberation was just slapped together, it squandered its great setting with a trite, forgettable narrative and the first game was far too repetitive, even on release, let alone to modern tastes, no amount of HD will fix how boring that game is.
  • @1 Couldn't be it as Origins happening already after his death (one of the missions is to find his tomb, I think). And as @5 said the whole purpose of the name "Origins" is to show the beginning of the Brotherhood.
