Recently there has been a rumour circulating around through the wonders of the internet and I seriously hope that this rumour fruitions into reality. One of the biggest questions that is always asked when discussing the next Assassins Creed is the location in which it will take place, now what I am about to discuss is purely rumour at this point so take it as you will.
As soon as I was done with Origins all I could think was that was an amazing experience! I honestly couldn’t believe how good AC Origins was, easily my favourite AC game, there is only one way in which a new game could take its place and that is where this new rumour comes in. Ancient Greece, if the rumour is true then our next outing as a deadly assassin could well take us to Greece, I have always said for as long as I can remember that Assassins Creed would be incredible should it ever be taken to one of my favourite points in history. Origins was a huge leap forward for the series, it was nearly a perfect game to me, taking the mechanics of Origins and changing the locations to Greece would be amazing! Though make no mistake I did love exploring Ancient Egypt, it is another piece of history that I enjoy. The series has never been to Greece before, this only adds to its viability as a location for the newest instalment.
Ubisoft themselves did say a couple of years ago when working on Origins that they had plans to journey to Greece, however they wished to explore Egypt first. Based on this bit of information I have to say that this rumour could have small facts behind it potentially giving the rumour some firm ground. Logically it would make sense to follow Ancient Egypt with Ancient Greece, or the only other location I can think off to naturally follow on from Egypt would be to head to Rome.
Like I said it is only a rumour at this point but I wouldn’t be to surprised to see Greece in our future, particularly when thinking about the ending of Origins.
Greece has had several key points of time in history, any of which would make for a compelling game.
The new AC is skated for a fall 2019 release, this gives us plenty of time to speculate over where about in the world we could be heading yet, but I belief there to be some truth to this rumour, or maybe that’s just because I would love to wander the streets of Ancient Greece. Where ever we go next, one thing is for certain, I will pre order my copy after the overwhelming enjoyment I felt when playing Origins, it was the breath of fresh air that Assassins Creed needed and I am glad that Ubisoft has realised that releasing a game year on year (like Activision with Call of Duty) only deteriorates the quality of the game, taking a couple of years in between in a sure fire way to ensure the quality is still there.
