The new offshoot Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has not yet been released, but the first rumors are already appearing about its successor. A user on Reddit has provided the first information that indicates a China setting.
Even before the announcement of a new Assassin’s Creed part, the fans are speculating diligently about the setting in which they will end up this time. Although many fans have wanted a samurai setting for the upcoming offshoot that takes place in the feudal era of Japan, the developers ultimately opted for a Viking scenario. This takes place in England during the Middle Ages.
Now the Reddit user with the name nstav13 spreads extensive rumors about the successor of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. In his post, he claims that there will definitely be an Assassin’s Creed in the near future that will take place in China or Japan.
As proof of this, he pointed to two concept drawings by designer John Bigorgne, who works at Ubisoft Montreal. One of them shows several assassins in an Asian landscape. It is not clear whether this is China or Japan. The user starts with China for several reasons. Among other things, it looks like a Chinese fortress and the landscape is more reminiscent of China.
This drawing could actually point to the next Assassin’s Creed title. But it can be just as good that the designer let his imagination run wild and ultimately there is nothing behind it. In addition, he provides several arguments that support his thesis about a possible China setting.
The file name of the first concept has the same format as an artwork by Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which could indicate its official use. In addition, the Vikings also clashed with the Mongols at the time, which would make the offshoot appearing in November with a sensible transition to its successor.
The last reason he gave was a survey launched by Ubisoft, in which fans were asked about their preferred setting for the next Assassin’s Creed. As an answer, “Genghis Khan and the Mongol invasions” were offered.
The opinions of Reddit users are divided. Many consider the reasons listed to be plausible, while others consider them to be out of thin air.
We think the arguments of the Reddit user are convincing. In addition, it has been speculated for a long time when the players in Assassin’s Creed will end up in China or Japan. So fans would definitely be happy about it.
