Well, it seems the next Assassin's Creed title will be set in Greece!

As Greek god Kratos swaps his homeland for a mythic Scandinavia in April's "God of War", it appears that the "Assassin's Creed" franchise has set its sights on an Ancient Greek stop-off. If you jump in an Animus and head back to late 2015 and early 2016, there were already talks of a new Assassin's Creed trilogy (codenamed Empire) which would span ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome.

According to a report by Comic Book, Ubisoft's next foray into the Assassin's Creed universe will happen in 2019, and will see the stealth "n" stab adventure series travel to the sun-soaked shores of Greece.

The information comes by way of Liam Robertson, who is mostly known for his work on Unseen64 uncovering cancelled and lost games. Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered is an enhanced version of the 2014 release, which charts the story of Shay Patrick Cormac's departure from the Assassin's brotherhood to becoming a member of the Templar Order. Writing for, Robertson cites multiple sources "linked to Ubisoft".

The time period is also unclear, though Greece's several historical periods (Bronze, Homeric, Byzantine) could all make for compelling backdrops.

As said, the upcoming new AC game is allegedly releasing next year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
