When we talk about Assassin’s Creed, in particular about a chapter that will have to come out in the future, the first question we all ask ourselves concerns the setting of the game: in which historical era will it be set?
Yes, for years now we have been used to seeing the Ubisoft title cyclically in new historical periods. Egypt, Renaissance, Vikings, and Greeks are just some of the settings that fans have gone through in the course of the Assassin’s Creed adventures. Where will the future take us?
Since the debut of the last chapter, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the hot names about the possible setting have always been feudal Japan or imperial China. Still obscure settings for development studios and in great demand by millions of fans. Unfortunately, however, according to an insider, the future of Assassin’s Creed will once again be in Europe.
The development of the game should be concentrated on the current generation consoles, PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S but could once again contemplate the past generation consoles such as PS4 and Xbox One.
According to a video posted by Jonathan, the insider who leaked correct information about Valhalla before the official announcement, viewers are convinced that they understand what historical period he was subtly referring to.
It seems that the central theme of the adventure will be the Third Crusade, which occurred between 1189 and 1192, led by England Angevin, from France and the Holy Roman Empire. If so, it would mean going back to basics. The first chapter of the saga starring Altair is in fact set in the same historical juncture. In addition to him, we could find various and important famous leaders and emperors and as many settings such as Paris, Acre, Corfu, Dubrovnik, etc.
Obviously, none of this has yet been confirmed or minimally covered by Ubisoft’s studios. The release of this hypothetical new chapter of Assassin’s Creed should take place in 2022, that is to say, next year.
