Although not yet officially confirmed by Ubisoft, it seems that the next game of the Assassin & # 39; s Creed franchise is about the time of the Vikings. The game is expected to be released in 2020 and in 2019 it will be the release of the updated edition of Assassin & # 39; s Creed III and the occasional addition of Odyssey & # 39; s Fate of Atlantis.
The theories that the next part of "Assassin & # 39; s Creed" will take place in the Viking age came into being in connection with the discovery of an interesting poster in "The Division 2". It shows a Norwegian god or warrior holding in his hand what looks like an apple from Eden – the chip of the series. Since then, the well-known Kotaku edition has joined the rumor, confirming that two independent sources & # 39; familiar with the game & # 39; have announced that the next game of the series will be code-named & # 39; Kingdom & # 39; and will appear in 2020.
Fans have long thought that the next part of Assassin & Creed will take place in Rome, as this is the logical conclusion of the trilogy, which includes events in Egypt and Greece. However, it is likely that Vikings, boats and pirate attacks are the route Ubisoft follows.
The Viking age usually refers to the period in Northern Europe between the ninth and eleventh centuries, meaning that the next game "Assassin & # 39; s Creed" on the timeline will be close to the events of the first part.
This is not the first time Ubisoft is playing with its audience. The new patch for Watch Dogs 2 also made it clear that the next numbering part of the series, Watch Dogs 3, will take place in London. The same news was quickly picked up by the major gaming publications, including Kotaku.
"Assassin & # 39; s Creed" is an Ubisoft action adventure that tells about the age-old battle between the Templars and Assassins. The series has been very successful – for example, the total sale of the Assassin & # 39; s Creed series games amounted to more than 100 million copies. The first part was released on November 14, 2007.
