Plans are already underway for a new Assassin’s Creed video game from Ubisoft and it might not be out until next year. The game is also reported to be set in the country of Greece for the very first time in the franchise’s history.
This new rumored report comes from games journalist Liam Robertson from ComicBook.com. Robertson has been super reliable over leaked info in the past, although it has been noted that nothing official has been announced by Ubisoft as of yet which is why this news is still a rumor.
Anyway, the report says the scheduled release for the game is Fall 2019 meaning there won’t be a new Assassin’s Creed video game out later this year. Development for the new game coming out after Origins actually began back in early 2017 meaning development should last close to three years.
Robertson’s sources also say that the new game is scheduled to be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Sadly, no news of a Nintendo Switch was heard. That said, Robertson did say a spin-off title could be released on the Switch in order to capitalize on the popularity of Nintendo’s console.
Greece is the next location and it’s something Ubisoft wanted to do for years. Greece could have been the setting for Origins, but Ubisoft opted for Egypt instead which paid off since the latest game was well received by fans and critics alike.
