The new Assassin’s Creed is slowly becoming something of a soap opera.
Over the weekend, we discussed the rumours regarding Ubisoft‘s next Assassin’s Creed – to name a few details, there would be co-op gameplay, a reputation system, a new progression system, and an alleged September release. The whole post was debunked by Daniel Ahmad, the senior analyst of Niko Partners, on ResetEra – he thinks the leaks are all false, and most of them are just guesses based on Kotaku’s April 2019 post. (Back then, the unannounced game was called Assassin’s Creed: Kingdom.)
„For what it’s worth, all of the new Assassin’s Creed leaks so far have been incorrect. It’s not even called Ragnarok. Sure, some of the details are right – like improved combat or whatever -, but in general, they’re not that accurate,” Ahmad wrote on ResetEra.
„Kotaku learned from two independent sources familiar with the game that 2020’s Assassin’s Creed, code-named Kingdom, does indeed star Vikings. We don’t know much else about the game, but after the phenomenal Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, we’re stoked to see what’s coming,” Kotaku’s Jason Schreier wrote. back then. As we’re talking about Ubisoft, we don’t think that they would skip the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One with this year’s Assassin’s Creed, which thus probably has a different subtitle. Still, in 2013, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag was available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 aside from the freshly launched PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. (And Watch Dogs, which got delayed by half a year, as well as getting graphically downgraded, also was a cross-gen release.)
So we don’t know what is right and what is wrong – there could be a PlayStation 5 event in February (multiple rumours mentioned it), and Ubisoft could finally announce the game there instead of making us wait until E3.
