A fresh-off-the-press rumour suggests that not only is the next Asssassin’s Creed potentially going back to its roots, but it’s also coming sooner than you might have thought!
Following the mammoth success of last year’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, we knew it wasn’t going to be too long until we started to hear about the next project under Ubisoft’s belt, and it sounds like we might have our first glimmer of news.
In an anonymous post on gaming forum Fireden, one user claimed to have a lot of insider knowledge on both Assassin’s Creed and Watch Dogs.
The post reads: “- Next Assassins Creed is codenamed Legion in 2020 on current and next gen
“- Set in Italy at the end of reign of Marcus Aurelius (guy from Gladiator) and during the struggles of his son Commodus and the year of 5 emperors
“- Play as Cassius or Lucia, a descendent of characters from Origins and Odyssey
“- Unclear which is canon, but like odyssey features choices and heavy RPG elements and same story for both characters.
“- Made by Sofia to tie up some loose ends for the “Ancient Trilogy” and currently is more first civ intensive than other game.
“- Main story is more involved in assassins and politics with first civ and flashbacks to other points in Rome history being secondary. Ubi wants to make it feel more like assassins creed while feeling like Odyssey to make old and new fans happy
“- Map is mainland Italy and small part of Gaul and Germania like Libya in Origins
“- Revised mercenary and cultist system. Big cultists and main story assassinations have those memory things.”
The rumour quickly made the rounds on both Twitter and Reddit, but there’s no proof to suggest the claims are true.
