According to an all-new leak, the upcoming Assassin’s Creed will not release by this year and is set for a 2020 release. This is set to bring the whole series back to Italy.
The all-new leak comes courtesy of a 4Chan post which claims that this game is being pitched as a mix of the recent entries in this series and also the originals which many of the fans have been wanting.
According to this post, the next Assassin’s Creed has been codenamed as Legion, and is now ready to release in 2020 on the current and also the next-gen systems, that seems to suggest that it will be a launch title for Xbox and PS5.
Legion has been said to be set in Italy by the end of the reign of Marcus Aurelius, who is a philosophical emperor that you might have known from the Ridely Scott’s Gladiator.
In this, you will play as Lucia or Cassius, a descendant of the characters from Origins and Odyssey. This post also notes that it is now unclear which is the canon, but the game will carry over the trend of heavy RPG elements.
This leaker claims that this game is seen as a tie-up for a few of the loose ends for “Ancient Trilogy.”
The map will be mainland Italy, and a few parts of Gaul and Germania will also be featured in this game.
The mercenary and cultist system will return but has also been revised in some fashion.
If the next Assassin’s Creed is set for a 2020 release, which actually seems to be a definite if Watch Dogs 3 releases this year, then we will not be hearing about this until next year.
