Ubisoft will reportedly release a brand new Assassin’s Creed in 2022, developed by Ubisoft Sofia with support from other Ubisoft studios around the world.
Ubisoft has released AC Valhalla last year and they have a whole year in 2021 to deliver post-launch DLC content for Valhalla. Apparently, they are working on a new Assassin’s Creed game that could arrive in 2022.
According to a new rumor from a French YouTuber, this game will be developed by Ubisoft Sofia. They have previously worked as a support studio on AC Origins DLC The Curse of the Pharaohs. They also developed AC Rogue, which was a smaller budgeted title that was released after AC Black Flag.
Judging from their past work, this could be a similar budgeted Assassin’s Creed game that will follow up from the DLC of AC Valhalla. Although details on the game are basically non-existent at this point, this rumor that comes from the French YouTuber suggests a release in Q1 2022.
Assassin’s Creed is one of the tentpole franchise for Ubisoft. Just for comparison, in the last generation, Ubisoft released at least seven new AC games and at one point, they were releasing a new one almost every year. They stopped doing it after the backlash against Unity, which was plagued with bugs at launch.
