Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Leak Looks Real To Us (Confirmed)


Ubisoft has been tight lipped on any possible Assassin’s Creed Odyssey leak, and rumours swirled all year since the stellar launch of Assassin’s Creed Origins, however this week we have been cautiously optimistic about new evidence and it now appears that the leaks are real. Let’s take a look at the pieces of the puzzle so far.

In a recent financial conference call, Ubisoft confirmed that they have a game from a AAA franchise that was yet to be revealed leading in to E3 2018, so all fingers are now pointing in the direction of Assassin’s Creed. Ubisoft even went as far as to say that the game will launch before the end of March 2019, meaning we might even get it this year given most Assassin’s Creed games have launched in the October/November holiday season time frame.

**UPDATE**: We can now confirm Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is real and making its way to E3 2018. Check out this official tweet with a 5 second teaser:

The first and most convincing source for the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey leak is this keychain, which features the classic Spartan helmet. The collectible helmet keychain is allegedly being sent out to stores around the world this week, meaning the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey leak will probably be very short-lived.

We have also sourced a photo of this Assassin’s Creed Odyssey t-shirt, with models that (as usual) appear less than impressed to be wearing it. Notice the front of the t-shirt features the Assassin’s Creed logo with the Spartan helmet, while the back of the t-shirt features the logo which is also used at the top of the keychain packaging:

In June 2017 when we covered the original leak of Assassin’s Creed Origins, the article in the Game Informer magazine mentioned Ancient Greece as a reference, and although we traveled to Rome as Bayek, and a large part of Ancient Egypt was inhabited by Romans, it did appear as if there was more of the story to tell, and more Ancient Greek ruins to explore. Will we continue with Bayek or Aya, or will there be an entirely new protagonist?

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is expected to launch on Windows PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 platforms. To find out more about Assassin’s Creed, head to the official website here.
