Rumour: The Next Assassin’s Creed Will Be Set in Greece, Coming in 2019

Should We Expect a New Assassin’s Creed Game Every Two Years Now?

Rumours are already coming out about the next entry in the Assassin’s Creed series. According to several sources close to Ubisoft, website Comic Book is reporting that the next Assassin’s Creed game will take place in ancient Greece.

As with any rumour these days, we would caution anyone reading this to take this news with a giant pinch of salt. Having said that, Comic Book does state that one of their sources has been accurate in the past regarding details around the development of Assassin’s Creed Origins which was once codenamed Empire.

Apparently, the setting of ancient Greece had been suggested to appear in Assassin’s Creed Origins, even though Egypt would remain the primary focus. Later, these sources reported that Greece would not be in the game and that it would be saved for the next future instalment.

The next Assassin’s Creed is also expected to release in 2019, two years after Origins. The game entered full production at the beginning 2017, the year Origins came out. It is in development for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Does this confirm that the series is now officially moving away from annual releases to being released every two years?

A Nintendo Switch version may still be in the cards, but nothing is being reported yet. While there have been valiant efforts in porting big AAA games to Nintendo’s latest hardware — Bethesda’s DOOM and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus come to mind — the next AC game may be too ambitious for the Switch. Ubisoft has always been a staunch supporter of Nintendo, so there may be a spin-off or port of an older game in the works for Switch.

We’re sure we’ll be hearing more about the next game in the near future. After all, details about every AC game has been leaked in some capacity over the years. We’ll keep you updated.

In the meantime, why don’t you tell us what you think about moving the series to ancient Greece in the comments below?
