Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Update adds New Game Plus
New Game Plus is a growing feature in games. It lets you ‘restart’ the game but with all of your progress and unlocks carried over to the ‘new game.’ Today’s update brings New Game Plus to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. You can now start again in Kephallonia as Alexios or Kassandra with all of your earned and unlocked gear, mounts, upgrades, abilities, crafting materials, and more. Today’s update also readdressed the Shadow Heritage DLC, fixing an issue that forced players into a heterosexual romance instead of letting them choose.

RUMOR: Assassin's Creed Legion + News About It
(Keep in mind that this is currently a RUMOR and this may or may not happen)
It seems as though the next Assassin's Creed in the series will be called Assassin's Creed Legion and it could be set in Italy. It will take place in the era of Marcus Aurelius, during the struggles of his son Commodus and the year of five emperors.
According to the rumor, the game is set to feature two protagonists; Cassius or Lucia, who are descendants of the protagonists of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and it’s unclear if the canon is going to work like Syndicate or Odyssey, but it’s meant to feature heavy RPG elements and a story for both characters.
The game is being created by Ubisoft Sofia, and is the conclusion to the “Ancient Trilogy” and is coming in 2020 on next generation systems. It’s also the most First Civilization-focused game to date.
The main story is more involved in assassins and politics with first civilization and flashbacks to other points in Rome history being secondary.
According to the rumor, Ubisoft wants to make it feel more like assassins creed while feeling like Odyssey to make old and new fans happy. The game map is mainland Italy as well as a small part of Gaul and Germania like Libya in Origins and is set to feature a revised mercenary and cultist system. Big cultists and main story assassinations have those memory things.
Of course, none of the information above is backed by any official source, therefore it remains an unconfirmed rumor.
