It seems that the new part of the Assassin’s Creed series is already in development, and gamers will not be able to play until 2020.
YouTube blogger JorRaptor drew attention toposters from The Division 2, hung in a virtual copy of the Potomac Event Center. In the image, an unknown man in a white cape and a red cloak is walking in an unknown direction, and he is holding the apple of Eden in his hands. The poster also features the inscription “Valhalla”, which refers us to Norse mythology. The blogger decided that this was an allusion to the new Assassin’s Creed and was right.
Guess the guy confirmed journalist Kotaku JasonSchreier, who was told about the project by two independent sources familiar with the game. According to Schreier, in the walls of Ubisoft the game is called Assassin’s Creed: Kingdom, there will be Vikings in it, and a new part of the series will be released in 2020. Note that at the same time is expected to release the ninth-generation consoles and a new part of the series may appear already on the PlayStation 5 or Projekt Scarlet (the new Xbox).
The setting of the AC is also hinted at by the work of Ubisoft Milan’s artist Michel Nusera, who in 2018 published an image titled “Viking Hell”.
The studio did not comment on the guesswork, but it is notthe first time the French hint about new projects in their own games. For example, Pioneer, which has already been canceled and revived, first appeared in Watch Dogs 2. Besides, in the last patch for Watchdogs, a hint of Watch Dogs 3 appeared.
