Ubisoft announced that the last Assassin's Creed Odyssey update will be released later this month, thus ending support for the game released last year. It will focus mainly on bug fixes, but that's not all Assassin's Creed Odyssey players can expect this month in the game.

The developers have activated a special schedule for the anniversary of Assassin's Creed Odyssey which will allow players to take down epic mercenaries or ships that were in previous limited time events. Ubisoft also shared the overall in-game statistics - apparently, over 645 million hours' worth of playtime has been spent in ancient Greece.

The next Assassin's Creed is expected to land in about a year from now, possibly alongside next-generation consoles.


We're celebrating the 1-year anniversary of Assassin's Creed Odyssey with a brand-new anniversary mount coming later this month to the in-game store.

Named after the playful nymph Melaina, this magnificent horse will turn any misthios into a flamboyant hero.
