According to the latest rumours, the next Assassin's Creed game could be a smaller project, similar to Far Cry New Dawn in scope. Apparently, Ubisoft don't have plans to release a major instalment just yet.
Earlier this week, rumours started to surface about a third major DLC for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, codenamed Meteor. This DLC has been datamined from the game files which also show the other two DLCs that are set in Ireland and France.
At the time of writing, Ubisoft are yet to officially announce the third DLC for Valhalla and if we had to guess, we would say this still seems pretty unlikely despite the info from the game files.
Assassin's Creed YouTuber Rafiti commented on these rumours, stating that Ubisoft probably won't release a major Assassin's Creed game in 2022. He states that the next Assassin's Creed project could be something like Far Cry New Dawn, a standalone, smaller game, that is connected to a major release in some form.
He also confirms that the current codename for the project is indeed Meteor. However, it seems that this Meteor project will not be focusing on Templars and The Crusades but the leaker hints that such a game might still exist and could be coming in the next few years.
As always with leaks and rumours, take everything you just read with a grain of salt since it's not coming from official Ubisoft channels. Hopefully, we'll get more details regarding the next Assassin's Creed on Ubisoft's games showcase this summer.
