Rumors are already beginning to swirl around the next Assassin’s Creed game. As always, fans want to know where the next game will be set. And, while there’s not much definitive news yet, the latest batch of rumors seems to point to ancient Greece.
These first reports come from ComicBook.com‘s Liam Robertson, who claims that a Grecian setting has been “well corroborated” by his sources.
Even if Robertson’s sources prove to be unfounded, an ancient Greece setting seems fairly likely. Back when Assassin’s Creed Origins was still in development, Ubisoft sent out a survey to fans asking about which settings they preferred, and “The Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta in Classical Greece” appeared on the list. On top of that, early rumors surrounding Assassin’s Creed Origins supposedly had the game’s naval combat stretch as far as Greece before the game was cut back to its current Egypt-only setting.
Finally, Assassin’s Creed series art director Raphael Lacoste took a trip to Meteora, Greece in August 2017 and shared a few photos. While Lacoste wrote that the trip was part of a personal vacation, it proves that someone on the team is at least thinking about Greece.
This next Assassin’s Creed game is currently in development. The same sources report that it will release in 2019.
