There's been a lot of talk regarding the Assasin's Creed franchise's next instalment and it's widely expected that it will be using Norse mythology and setting to spin the yarn. The latest leak comes from GameStop Italy.
GameStop's Italian branch has jumped the gun a few times in the past, with mixed success if you know what we mean, so it wasn't uncommon seeing them named as the culprits. Apparently, the listed page has been removed but one Reddit user claims to have screen-capped and posted it online .
The screenshot says the full name is Assasin's Creed: Ragnarok - Mjolnir Edition, which seems to fit the general narrative around the franchise's next instalment.
That said, there could've been some foul play afoot here, and the screenshot could've been doctored to fit it. As noticed by eagle-eyed Redditors, the person who posted this only provided the screenshot, not the page. Furthermore, the "presell" number is identical to that of Watch Dogs, which doesn't bode well for the accuracy of this "leak".
Nevertheless, Assassin's Creed's Norse-flavoured instalment has been talked about for a while now, and too many leaks have pointed to its existence. From Tom Clancy's The Division 2 images showing a Viking holding the Apple of Eden, which is at the heart of the franchise's narrative, to the screenshots leaked on ResetEra , very few player doubt that Ubisoft is going north next.
For what it's worth, earlier rumours pointed at the name Assassin's Creed: Kingdom, but latter reports added a mythical dimension claiming it's called Ragnarok. The game was said to span a large open-world area in Scandinavia and parts of England, but again - latter leaks spoke of some locations that mythology lovers will surely appreciate.
Having loved every second of Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, we can't wait to see where Ubisoft goes next. We know where we'd love them to go .
