According to the latest rumours, the next Assassin's Creed game will be titled Ragnarok. The reveal is coming in February while the release date is set for Autumn 2020.
The next Assassin's Creed game has been a subject of many leaks and rumours in the last year or so but Ubisoft are yet to give us any solid details on the next instalment in the popular action-adventure series. The earlier rumours mentioned titles Kingdom and Ragnarok, Viking Age setting and a huge open world that covers Scandinavia and a big part of England.
According to the latest leak, which initially appeared on Reddit, the next Assassin's Creed could be named Ragnarok, not Kingdom as earlier suggested. Kingdom was an early codename according to deleted Reddit post.
The game will once again feature both male and female protagonist but this choice won't have any impact on the story, just like in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey. Furthermore, the Brotherhood system is making a return with recruitable NPCs.
As for the storyline, the game is focused on a revenge quest and the big part of it will feature the first civilisation story. Players will get to visit realms like Asgard or Jotteneim, meet mythical Norse gods - Odin and Loki and also visit the iconic tree Ygdrassil.
The leak also claims that the present-day story part will be featured, as much as Origins or Odyssey. However, Ragnarok will conclude this storyline, which is something that many players will be glad to hear.
The gameplay remains the same as Odyssey with some additional improvements and more RPG elements. Ubisoft plan to reveal the game during the PlayStation event in February 2020. This definitely makes sense since some rumours suggest that Sony will reveal PlayStation 5 on the same event.
Last but not least, Assassin's Creed: Ragnarok will release in Autumn 2020, probably October, which is usually the month when Ubisoft release their action-adventure title.
