Next Assassin's Creed Could Be About Vikings (RUMOR)


(This is all a big rumor and nothing is set in stone, so take this all with a grain of salt) It’s time to get excited for a new Assassin’s Creed game. 2017’s Assassin’s Creed Origins breathed new life into Ubisoft’s played-out stealthy murder simulator by turning it into a full-blown RPG as epic as its ancient Egyptian open-world setting. And it pulled off this radical shift by taking an extra year of development. Assassin’s Odyssey followed the next year and while it carried over these cool innovations while adding more horniness, it was more evolution than revolution. However, the next Assassin’s Creed is getting the same extra year in development Origins got, so expectations are high for this game, and that’s before taking into account it’ll probably launch on next-gen platforms. Now new rumors and suggesting what form this next leap in the series will take: Vikings. As discovered by YouTube user JorRaptor, the recent Ubisoft loot shooter Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 features a poster for a show called “Valhalla” showing a vaguely Assassin’s Creed-looking guy holding a vaguely Assassin’s Creed-looking magic apple. By referencing Norse Heaven, players connected the dots and guessed this was an Easter Egg for the next Assassin’s Creed game starring Vikings. And now insiders are saying these guesses are correct. 2020’s Assassin’s Creed game “Kingdom” will indeed center around Vikings. Presumably the naval warfare of recent games will play and even bigger role. Plus the aggro pre-firearms warrior combat of Spartans can totally working with Vikings. Just import some of those For Honor assets. Also this continues the fun trend of Assassin’s Creed staying just one step behind God of War in terms of ancient mythological locations. Can’t wait to stab Thor in the throat. This Assassin’s Creed news also reminded everyone that, yes, Watch Dogs 3 will be set in London. Maybe Ubisoft will work in a plot about Prince Harry wanting to ban Fortnite. Or perhaps this is in response to other recent games trying to capture what’s cool about pre-Brexit England like Forza Horizon 4 and Pokemon Sword and Shield.
