It’s an interesting change, as fans of the series will be well aware that the story entails reliving ancestors memories, meaning that these new additions would seem a little unfitting. It will be interesting how they work within the story, and what is influenced by your choices.
According to Geek.com, two of their sources have said that the game will come out before the end of Ubisoft’s fiscal year. Meaning before March 31st 2019. If this is true, we may be looking at Ubisoft returning to an annual release schedule for the Assassins Creed franchise. Either way, we know that we will see it at E3 thanks to Ubisoft’s announcement teaser.
It all started earlier today, when french site Jeuxvideolive, leaked an image of a keyring promoting Assassins Creed Odyssey. It was later confirmed by Kotaku, who also published a separate image of the keyring from one of their sources.
