The Assassin’s Creed franchise is one that likes to keep fans on their toes. We just never know where the next game in the series will take place, and it’s a huge part of why the games are so fun, so diverse and so entertaining.
Although there’s been plenty of rumours about where the next new Assassin’s Creed game might be set, it looks like one gamer has found what could be a very telling Easter egg in another Ubisoft game…
A player of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 seems to have spied what could be a very interesting Easter egg in the game, as it seems to suggest that the next Assassin’s Creed is taking place in the era of Vikings, which would definitely be up a lot of people’s alleys.
PCGamesN reports that an AC forum post seemingly shows a character from The Division 2 looking at a poster of a man dressed in a red and white cloak, with a helmet, tunic, spear and a mysterious orb-like thing. The text on the poster says ‘Valhalla,’ meaning the Viking afterlife.
The AC fan who created the post, AlifMorrisonudin, writes: “There’s a poster of Norse god which is holding some kind of Ball object which is similar with Apple of Eden.”
I’ve never played Assassin’s Creed and I’m not sure an assassin is the most Viking of things, but I like the sound of the tourist mode they implemented in Origins. I’d be up for something like that in a Viking world.

Over on YouTube, Assassin’s Creed super fan JorRaptor also believes the sphere is an Apple of Eden, a mythological item seen in a few of the AC games. He does say: “Remember that ofc nothing has been confirmed at this point, but it’s still a very interesting find that could be hinting at the future. Let’s hope so!”
