It's just days until E3 2019 officially kicks off and the annual leaks are coming in thick and fast. 

The latest leak (courtesy of Kotaku's Jason Schreier) suggests that Ubisoft is working on a new "small-scope" RPG in the same art style as Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – codenamed Orpheus.

Check out Shreier's tweet below:

Another Grecian epic?

We've seen Ubisoft venture into RPGs with the likes of Assassin's Creed Odyssey, but it sounds like this game will be a much smaller than the Grecian epic. However, it's likely we could see some of the same mechanics implemented (if the rumors are true) such as horse-riding, sailing and narrative choices.

The codename, Orpheus, does imply the title could be based in Greece too, as Orpheus was a legendary musician, poet, and prophet from Greek mythology. 

We're expecting Ubisoft will announce the RPG during it's conference at E3 2019.
