Ubisoft May Not Release A New Assassin's Creed Game Until 2022

The wild success of Assassin's Creed: Valhalla could go one of two ways: either Ubisoft will be chomping at the bit to release a new Assassin's Creed to surpass Valhalla, or it will ride the success for a few more years before releasing a new game. Either way, there's little evidence that Ubisoft will be done with Assassin's Creed any time soon. But will players have to wait years for another Assassin's Creed? Or will Ubisoft deliver?

Streamer and Assassin's Creed fan xj0nathan believes there won't be another Assassin's Creed game until 2022. There's also speculation from Assassin's Creed content creator Rafiti, who believes the next game could be set in Scotland or Spain. Rafiti also believes that Ubisoft might release a smaller title with a support studio before launching a full-fledged Assassin's Creed title on par with Valhalla.

Additionally, xj0nathan seemingly hinted in a follow-up tweet that this smaller installment might not be developed by Ubisoft's Toronto headquarters, but would instead be developed by Ubisoft Sofia. This is, of course, the same studio that developed Assassin's Creed: Rogue and DLC for Origins. Of course, this is all speculation at this point, so until Ubisoft makes an official announcement, fans won't know for sure what's in store for the next sequel. The ending of Valhalla left plenty of unanswered questions, so a long wait for a sequel could prove to be excruciating for hardcore fans.

Of course, Ubisoft also has plenty of post-launch content in store for Valhalla. Valhalla DLC is set to release in Spring 2021 with the first expansion pass, "The Wrath of the Druids", taking players to Ireland. The second expansion, "The Siege of Paris," is set to follow in Summer 2021.

According to post-launch producer Jose Araiza, "The Wrath of the Druids" is for those players who are "more interested in the Celtic, the Druids, and those darker tones that really add to a mysterious feeling of the expansion." In "The Siege of Paris" players will "infiltrate, create alliances, and try to conquer Paris from within." According to level design director Bruno St-Andre, there will be four iterations of seasonal content. Hopefully this will be enough to tide players over until the next installment of the series.

So far, it is unclear whether or not there will be a new Assassin's Creed game in 2022, as the only information players have gotten recently have been rumors and speculation. Players will have to wait and see. For now, players will have to make do with Valhalla DLC.
