The speculation about new content for Assassin’s Creed does not stop. Snippets of information keep appearing on the Internet. So far we can be sure of one thing: The DLC for Valhalla “Siege of Paris” is coming and should be ready in summer 2021, even earlier, namely on May 13th, “Wrath of the Druids” will be available for download.
Now there are new guesses about the next part in the series. These are leaks that have not yet been confirmed by the public. So they are to be used with caution.
The leaker “J0nathan” had only recently found interesting things in the source code of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Including the theory that a natural disaster strikes the area and thereby changes the map. There are suspicions that the working title for this is “Meteor”. So is Ubisoft going to crack it anytime soon? Definitely not too soon. The leaker expects this to happen in January 2022 at the earliest, if not later. There have been a lot of postponements at Ubisoft overall.
For example, “Meteor” was pushed before another project, often referred to simply as “Richard”. It is named after Richard the Lionheart, King of England. We would have accompanied them on their way back to the United Kingdom. Only accompanied? Yes, exactly, we would have been given the job of bodyguard. But other people would also have come. One would have followed the story of a man and a woman. In the course of the game, these two would have teamed up. Unfortunately, we don’t know who they are.
In contrast to the very large environments like in Assassin’s Creed Origins, Odyssey and Valhalla, it would have become more linear. Each level of the game would have offered a semi-open world. The content would have been set during the third crusade (1189 – 1192) and thus probably before the first part of the series. We remember back: Altair whizzed over the roofs in 1191. And what about “Richard”? Even for the leaker, it does not seem clear whether the project was discontinued or just put on the waiting bench for an indefinite period of time.
According to the leak, one thing is certain: “Meteor” will come in some form, namely as the next new update. Why was it preferred? Apparently they wanted to use the hype about Vikings. In addition, the studio was busy with the other projects and the pandemic. A new part would have required too many resources. Will we ever see the adventures of Richard the Lionheart? We can only hope.
