And of course, the title Odyssey infers some connection to Ancient Greece, specifically the Trojan War - which took place in the 12th century BCE.

And if that dude getting kicked off cliff seems recognisable, it is because it is basically just that bit from 300. If the leak holds water at all, we will for sure be hearing about it at E3. French website Jeux Video Live has uncovered a key chain with the name Assassin's Creed: Odyssey that features the head of a spartan warrior.

Originally leaked by JeuxVideo, a piece of collectible merchandise - a keychain with a Roman or Greek helmet - is shown, giving credence to the ideas of an Assassin's Creed: Origins sequel.

Ubisoft did not immediately respond when asked for comment. The game will introduce even more RPG mechanics to the series.

Salah is home to about 2,00,000 people and portion of it lost power after being hit by the storm. Civil defense authorities said they had set up 65 shelter centers in the two affected provinces.

The info dump also says that naval battles will be a big focus once again, similar to Assassin's Creed 4.

Ubisoft has yet to officially announce a new entry in the Assassin's Creed series. If this is true, it means the series is going back to an annual schedule. Although the previously-annualised series had skipped 2016 in the wake of 2014's disappointing Assassin's Creed: Unity, it's likely that this one will be out this spring, returning to the yearly schedule for which the popular franchise has always been known.

Although unconnected to the leaked merch, other rumors suggest that Assassin's Creed: Odyssey will launch in the fall of 2019. Insiders claim that the new game will be out in less than a year and will have new gameplay elements. E3 is nearly here, so expect a full reveal during the big show. You know the salty drill by now, folks.
