Ghost of Tsushima has taken samurai fans by storm – while many say that feudal Japan would have been a good setting for Assassin's Creed too. Instead, Assassin's Creed Valhalla goes to the Vikings. But does developer Ubisoft really want to leave the Asian setting to the others without a fight? A fan doubts that.
Assassin's Creed: is Ubisoft secretly working on a China part?
Assassin's Creed is a feast for everyone interested in history and open world: No matter whether it's the Middle Ages, Renaissance, American Civil War, French Revolution or ancient Greece – Ubisoft has already immersed players in many interesting historical epochs and still has a lot of material left for new games. But especially in feudal Japan Ghost of Tsushima was faster, while the offshoot of Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China cannot be counted as a full game.
How Reddit user nstav13 however, suspected, developers Ubisoft Japan and China are far from being off the table. According to his theory, Ubisoft Montreal could have been working on an Assassin's Creed part in Asia in the background long ago. In doing so, he supports himself on the concept graphic below by Assassin's Creed designers John Bigorgnewhich he did in 2017 on his ArtStation account published. Assassin's Creed in China – was it just an idea or is it made meanwhile more become? Reddit user nstav13 believes in the second.
For the Reddit user, there are several details that speak for an Assassin's Creed in China. First, the File marking of the picture above the same standard as pictures for Assassin's Creed Valhalla. In addition, Ubisoft asked fans in 2018 (via Codex), which historical settings you would like for upcoming Assassin's Creed parts – here too the War between China and the Mongols offered.
Since the Vikings also had contact with the Mongols, it would too historically fit. The Reddit user points out, however, that the technical side should not be ignored either. It is known that developers Ubsioft Assets from previous games recycled. A transition from one setting to another would not be a big problem.
The community is impressed by his theory, even if the evidence is a bit too thin for many fans. As long as developer Ubisoft has not yet confirmed this theory, it should be used with extreme caution.
Is the next Assassin's Creed in China? A fan believes this and supports his theory with several points. But as long as all this remains speculation, fans are more concerned with another question: How will Assassin's Creed Valhalla be received after the much-praised Ghost of Tsushima? Vikings against samurai. We will know about it for the release on November 17, 2020.
