A new Assassin's Creed rumour has surfaced online, revealing info about Ubisoft's plans for the franchise in 2021. Apparently, the two DLCs are coming in March and June while the next game will be set in medieval France and Germany.

According to the latest leak, Ubisoft will be very busy with the Assassin's Creed franchise in 2021. The leak comes from controversial message board 4chan , so a hefty dose of scepticism is required but it has some interesting info nonetheless. 

The anonymous poster reveals the release windows for Assassin's Creed Valhalla's two upcoming DLCs as well as information regarding the next Assassin's Creed game, which is allegedly a smaller, spin-off title in the style of Assassin's Creed Rogue. Here's the breakdown of the info from the leak:

  • Wrath of the Druids coming in March follow Halfdan’s return to Ireland and his death by Irish druids before Eivor allies with the King of Dublin.
  • Siege of Paris coming in early June before E3 or similar events. 
  • Eivor aids Rollo in the siege and makes allies with french Nobles like Odo to depose Charles the Fat. 
  • This DLC is much longer and has story elements with Basim that leads into the next game to be revealed at E3 
  • Assassin’s Creed Champion (codename) to be announced during E3 or similar presentations, being a classical European fantasy take on the series set in medieval France and Germany and releasing in early 2022.

At the moment, the details about the next Assassin's Creed game are pretty scarce. Ubisoft did not say much but players are hoping to see another interesting setting such as China, Japan or even a game set during the Aztec period. Our personal pick would be the 17th century India, something that was mentioned in another recent 4chan leak.

Hopefully, we'll hear more about the next major entry in the franchise, very soon. Assassin's Creed Valhalla is available now on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Google Stadia.
