Is it because it's another annualized release of a reskinned game?
No. That doesn't bother me, too much.

Is it because it can't involve the Assassin Brotherhood because it takes place 400 years before Bayek founds it?
No. That doesn't bother me.

Is it because I didn't like Origins and Odyssey is going to build on what was done?
No. I rather liked Origins.

Is it because there will invariably be some stupid ship mission?
No. I deal with that in other games too.

Is it because I LIKED Origins and want that to be the lasting impression of the series for me in the future?
No. I'd gladly take more.

Is it because the Present Day story-lines that made me like the series from the beginning have been abandoned?
No. Those were abandoned long ago and I keep coming back.

Is it because I'm too busy to devote days of my life to another game?
No. Well, maybe.

So why might I not play this game? A game that will probably look stellar, go to a new place in history, and be fun as all get out to play?
My first child is due October 17, and Assassin's Creed Odyssey just isn't that high on my priority list right now.

I myself don't look forward to playing Odyssey anytime soon because of your first stated reason. Congratulations on bringing another assassin into the world. Rob's applause

Expected a huge analysis/critique on the series, but this is cool too!

Seriously, congratulations man. Awesome news.

That's a damn good reason, Cheese. I won't be starting Odyssey for a while because I still haven't finished Origins!

We have a great life here in Hawaii, and we're never going back to America again!
