The rumour has it Ubisoft are planning to release a smaller, spin-off Assassin's Creed title in early 2022. Ubisoft Sofia who previously worked on a similar title - Assassin's Creed Rogue - are reportedly helming the project.
You are probably still enjoying the latest Assassin's Creed game, which released a couple of months ago but Ubisoft are well underway with the next instalment in the popular action-adventure franchise.
At the moment, we know that Assassin's Creed: Valhalla is the final game in the latest trilogy, which means we're getting a brand new story arc with the next major Assassin's Creed game. This big instalment could be set for release sometime in 2023 but before that, it looks like Ubisoft will release a smaller Assassin's Creed game to fill the two-year gap.
These rumours surfaced a couple of weeks ago but recently, some Assassin's Creed content creators have hinted that these reports could be indeed true. In a Twitter thread , Assassin's Creed YouTuber Rafiti suggested that the next Assassin's Creed game could be set in Scotland or Spain. He also pointed out that Ubisoft will probably release a smaller game before the next major instalment in the franchise.
Another Assassin's Creed content creator j0nathan added that this smaller title is set to release early 2022 and it's being developed by Ubisoft Sofia, the same team who worked on another spin-off title - Assassin's Creed Rogue and also DLC for Assassin's Creed Origins.
At the moment, take this with a grain of salt since it's just a rumour and speculation, nothing more. If they plan to release another Assassin's Creed title in early 2022, Ubisoft will probably talk more about the game at Ubisoft Forward, later this year.
