In fact, the same source that correctly predicted the Egyptian Gods and Monsters setting for the recent Assassin's Creed: Origins.

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

Both periods overlap, with the "Assassin's Creed Origins" storyline taking place between 49 and 47 BC, and the Ancient Greek era running from 800 BC to not long after 500 AD - though by the time of "Assassin's Creed Origins", Greece was already under Roman rule.

That's according to video game researcher and WWG writer Liam Robertson, who cites "several sources linked to [franchise publisher] Ubisoft".

Just before he died, Stephen Hawking predicted the 'end of the universe'
Professor Neil Turok, the director of Canada's Perimeter Institute, was confused why Hawking found the theory appealing. Hawking's multiverse theory states that our universe is one of many others in existence caused by the Big Bang.

Yesterday the first wave of rumours surrounding the next entry in the Assassin's Creed series appeared online, highlighting the potential setting of the yet-to-be-announced game. Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered is an enhanced version of the 2014 release, which charts the story of Shay Patrick Cormac's departure from the Assassin's brotherhood to becoming a member of the Templar Order.

As said, the upcoming new AC game is allegedly releasing next year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

The scope of the game will likely mean it won't be releasing on Nintendo Switch, according to the report, though that's not to say other Assassin's Creed games aren't in the works for Switch.
