The Assassin's Creed franchise is among the most successful of all time in video game history. The series has numerous games that take place in real periods of world history and presents several characters and plots in a non-linear way. With so many different titles and protagonists, we know it's difficult to understand the story as a whole. That's why we've arranged the perfect chronological order of all Assassin's Creed games below so you don't have any more doubts. Check out!


Assassin's Creed Odyssey (431 - 404 A.C)


  • Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows and Stadia

Even though it is the most recent title, the story of Odyssey takes place before any other game, as it takes place in Ancient Greece and explores the battles between Athens and Sparta. Although it predates most of the elements present in the other games (Order of Assassins, Order of Templars, etc.), the game features several institutions that, in the future, ended up giving rise to plots already known to fans of the franchise.

Assassin's Creed Origins (49-43 A.C)

  • Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows

Origins is set in Ancient Egypt during the time of Cleopatra. The game explores the exact context of the founding of the Order of Assassins (formerly known as The Hidden), and also tells the story of how the protagonist defeats the Order of Elders.
