New ‘Assassin’s Creed’ Game Could Be Set In Ancient Greece

New ‘Assassin’s Creed’ Game Could Be Set In Ancient Greece

In a little more than a decade, the world has been blessed with a whopping 20 instalments to the Assassin's Creed franchise.

Gamers have played in the Third Crusade, the Italian Renaissance, the Colonial and Victorian eras, the French and October Revolutions, Imperial China, the Sikh Empire and Ancient Egypt.

Well, if you've ever wanted the Animus of Desmond to be walking through Ancient Greece, you're in luck.

According to ComicBook.com, Ubisoft is hoping for a 2019 release of the game and it's likely to be in the same style as Origins.

But before you get too excited, writer Liam Robertson said: "As with any rumour, I would advise readers taking it with a pinch of salt; even one as well corroborated as this one. Having said that, the setting of Greece would chime with other murmurs I had heard from earlier on in the development of Assassin's Creed Origins."

But Ancient Greece is a pretty wide point in history as it spans from the 13th-19th centuries BCE to 600 AD, and there's no word on what part of this period Ubisoft will focus on.

To be fair, it has a lot to choose from: there's the Archaic Period where you've got the legend of the Spartan army, Classical Greece which is where Alexander the Great made his big conquests and Roman Greece which is when the region fell under Roman rule.

The developers behind the game will have a lot to live up to after Assassin's Creed: Origins appeared to be a big hit with critics. Not only were the graphics amazing, which gave gamers a beautiful vista to explore, but a recent patch turned it into a museum of sorts for people to learn more about Ancient Egypt.

The Discovery update took away all the fun stuff: missions, enemies and murders, and gave players a history lesson.

The Guardian's Keza MacDonald wrote: "It's like one of those audio guides that you can pick up at museums. The difference between Assassin's Creed Origins and a museum, though, is that you are immersed, walking the streets of a village as an Egyptian child or riding a horse in the shadow of the great pyramids.

"It has the potential to be an extraordinary learning tool, as its developers discovered when they ask educators and researchers at schools, museums and universities to offer feedback on the early designs."

Whether Ubisoft does this with the new game set in Ancient Greece is anyone's guess.
