I'm ready for new AC.

Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok Reveal Rumoured For February 2020

There’s been no official word from Ubisoft on the next addition to the beloved Assassin’s Creed franchise, but as always, the rumour mill is in full swing (if mills swing, which I’m fairly certain they don’t). We’ve heard rumblings that the next game will be called “Ragnarok,” and it seems like we might be seeing a reveal sooner rather than later.

As always, take these supposed rumours and leaks with a pinch of salt. (Similar rumours have already been debunked).

The latest “news” comes via Reddit, where a user claims to have some inside scoop on the development of the next Assassin’s Creed. It’s not the first time we’ve heard that it could be called “Ragnarok,” but the rest of the leak suggests not only when the reveal might be, but also the release date.

The post, written by a now-deleted user, reads as follows: “Guess you all know about the next Assassin’s Creed and it’s Viking setting, so here’s a bunch of infos about it.

“The game was codenamed kingdom but now is called Ragnarok. Release fall 2020 on both old and new gen. Reveal during the playstation event on feb. Viking setting, c. 800 BC. Map includes Scandinavia and a big part of England, including London and Plimouth.

“Choice between a woman and a man, but there’s no impact on the story, that is the same. Protagonist, woman or male, is called Jora, and become an Assassin during the game.

“Brotherhood system is back, with recruitable npcs. You can still use a boat to travel on sea, but there’s less naval combat than black flag or Odyssey imo. Story-wise, the game is focused on a revenge quest, with a big part of first civilization story.”

The post continues: “Realms like Asgard or Jottuneim can be visited in the game, mythical beings such as Odin or Loki play a big part in the story, as well as the Ygdrassil. Game has a present day part but, as much as Origins or Odyssey. It will conclude the present day storyline. gameplay is the same as odyssey, with improved mechanics and further rpg elements.”

Although there’s nothing to verify the supposed leak, a release window of  Fall 2020 seems pretty realistic all things considered.

Would you like this to be the next Assassin’s Creed game?
