The next installment of Assassin’s Creed might be in the Viking era. There was rumor back in May, but it ended being fake. Also, there was an easter egg in The Division 2, featuring a Viking holding an Apple of Eden in a poster.
Recently the game has been listed on the Italian GameStop site and the Amazon in Germany. Of course the listing has already being taken down. Meaning that could very easily be fake, even if we already know that Ubisoft is working on the next Assassin’s Creed.
After the underwhelming sales of The Division 2 and Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Ubisoft announced the delay of several titles like Watch Dogs Legion and Rainbox Six Quarantine. So maybe they are doing the same with the new Assassin’s Creed.
Honestly I was hoping for a Feudal Japan setting, you know, samurais, ninjas and everything else that makes complete sense in an Assassin’s Creed game. Unfortunately the series went to another direction. The same direction that every Ubisoft game seems to go, nowhere.
Let’s hope the delays will provide the time needed to make something worthwhile. Something that really deserves the asking price and not something that looks the same with every other Ubisoft game that came out the last few years.
There is no official statement from Ubisoft yet. This is just a rumor at the moment so take it with a grain of salt. If anything changes we will make sure to let you know.
