Assassin’s Creed Odyssey may have had its description leaked via the PlayStation Store as shown in a thread on the /r/AssassinsCreed subreddit.
At the moment, the only official information about Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is a tweet from the game’s official Twitter account:

Beyond that, we didn’t know much about the game. However, a leak on /r/AssassinsCreed may have revealed the description a bit earlier than intended. Purportedly, the game popped up in the PlayStation Store for a short time, allowing an industrious Redditor by the name of /u/Frack-Reynolds to grab a picture:
If this is accurate, the description along with the name of the game would set this title firmly in Greece. While the locale had been mentioned in previous titles here and there, this would mark the first time that the game would be taking place in this particular setting. The image for the game’s art shows a warrior seemingly making use of a broken spear in an attack against a defender wielding a classic Greek round shield.
Though the Spartans were well-known for being very straightforward warriors, they nonetheless occasionally made use of subterfuge and cunning through organizations like the Crypteia. As far as historians know, young Spartan boys and men would venture out into the night to try to stealthily murder members of the non-citizen helot population in a custom that was meant to teach them stealthiness while also keeping the potential for a helot rebellion in check.
As with all things of this nature, it’s still very much a rumor. We haven’t yet been able to independently confirm if the above image is accurate, but we do at least know that we will be seeing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey at some point during E3.
Do you think this is a genuine description of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey? Does the ideal of an Assassin’s Creed game set in Greece appeal to you? Check out our E3 2018 Coverage Hub to stay up on all the E3 News! Let us know in the comments below!
