According to sources a new Assassin’s Creed game is in development and will be released next year, though apart from a few details not a lot of information has been made available. Recent leaks point out towards a game set in Italy where most of the Assassin’s Creed games are based and will follow the storyline of Cassius or Lucia. The descendants of last games characters.
Like the previous game, this too will have two playable characters with their own unique storyline and set at the end of the reign of Marcus Aurelius. The game as of right now titled Legion will have the mercenary and cultist systems which are a recurring system from Odyssey.
The map includes a major part of Italy with Gaul and Germania also set to feature in a small capacity which pretty much assures sea travel will be available in the game.
The story of this game will try to tighten up the loose ends of the Ancient Trilogy and might feature a bit more about the first civilization.
Though nothing is yet confirmed to take this with a pinch of salt as we are waiting on an official confirmation on this.
Assassin’s Creed is not releasing a game this year so maybe we will get to see more about this title at this year’s E3.
The most interesting part about this game is that we do not know if the delay is being made to release this game for the next-gen consoles, but we can be certain that it will support the current gen consoles.
We’ll keep you updated as soon as more information is available.
