Why Greece? Well, the report indicates that last year's Assassin's Creed Origins was initially planned to also include Greece, but Ubisoft later made a decision to give it its own game.

Part of the fun of the Assassin's Creed series is guessing where and when the next title may be set.

The information comes by way of Liam Robertson, who is mostly known for his work on Unseen64 uncovering cancelled and lost games.

Assassin's Creed Origins - will the next one be a direct follow-up?

Fierce competition in the toy segment ultimately led to its demise, including competition from Walmart , Target and Amazon . Its scale gave it leverage with toy sellers and it disrupted general merchandise stores and mom-and-pop shops.

When considering classic Grecian settings, the obvious contender is Ancient Greece, a period considered to have begun around 9th century B.C. This era encapsulates huge advances in the arts, such as sculpture and poetry, as well as the country's submission under the Roman Empire, all of which sounds like the ideal backdrop for Assassin's Creed knifey-politicey chicanery.

Expected late on in 2019, the 11th core entry to the era-straddling "Assassin's Creed" franchise is going to take players to Ancient Greece.

But it's equally possible the new game may sever direct connections with Origins and set itself in a different time period to make sure it gets the widest possible number of famous Ancient Greek characters. That said, it's worth taking the details with a pinch of salt.
