According to website Comic Book, whose writer Liam Robertson is well known for his work on Unseen64, Origins was originally meant to incorporate Ancient Greece as well as Egypt but got slimmed down for the final release.

The next Assassin's Creed game is reportedly well into development, and it'll be taking the series to Greece for the first time.

Where do you think the next Assassin's Creed will be set? Having said that, the setting of Greece would chime with other murmurs I had heard from earlier on in the development of Assassin's Creed Origins (previously codenamed Empire).

Furthermore, if we are to put our tin foil hats on for a moment, a new Assassin's Creed heading to Greece may have already been publicly hinted at past year. A new spate of rumours around the Origins follow-up suggest that the new location will be ancient Greece.

The time period is also unclear, though Greece's several historical periods (Bronze, Homeric, Byzantine) could all make for compelling backdrops.

As you'd expect there's no sign of a Switch version, but apparently Ubisoft are considering a spin-off or a port of an older title for Nintendo's console.

Created by Ubisoft Sofia, the studio that developed the original Assassin's Creed Rogue, this remaster further enriches the franchise's current-gen catalogue, and the game will shine in 4K on PlayStation®4 Pro and Xbox One X (and run 1080p on PS4™ and Xbox One).
