Rumor: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Protagonist to be Spartan

It’s become something of a tradition for information regarding Assassin’s Creed games to be leaked relentlessly before launch, with one recent leak leading to the announcement of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Well, that tradition is continuing even as we approach Ubisoft’s E3 2018 show and what’s likely to be an in-depth reveal.

Over on the PS4 store, the logo and description for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey appeared very briefly, before being taken down. But of course, mistakes on the internet are always immortalized for all to see. Check out the image for yourself below.

So, it looks as if the next story is set to revolve around one person’s journey to join the legendary Spartan fighting force. Something else that’s worth picking out is this line: “Live incredible adventures in a world where every choice matters“. Does this mean we could be seeing some sort of choice-mechanic being added to the franchise, with a possible branching narrative? Or this this just marketing gumpf to make the game sound cooler?

Either way, becoming a Spartan warrior would indeed be very interesting, and would fit in very nicely with the combat style introduce in Origins. And while no mention of its predecessor was made, we’re excited none the less.

Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
