Assassin’s Creed is among the largest gaming franchises out there, and the internet is always flooded with news of future releases. And the setting for the next instalment may be India, according to a new leak.
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles, which has four separate settings, included India for the record. But since it was 2.5D and partly a platformer, it was not juicy enough to be considered a proper representation.
On 4chan, the latest leak was released, which implies it must be treated with a fistful of salt. The report happens to show a ‘raw map’ from the next game that shows India with the British, Dutch and other European nations establishing their colonies in the 17th century.
The individual who appears to be a Ubisoft insider states in the article that all of India, Bangladesh as well as a part of Pakistan will presumably be included in the game. The developers plan to add a bigger map to this project than Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Since the game might take place during the 17th century, the Taj Mahal would probably also be included. It is reported that the British East India Company and the Dutch East India Company, which will form rival factions, will be the target.
That article also notes that there are still no comments about naval gameplay. And the game is set to have a completely written female protagonist according to the trend set by Odyssey and Valhalla, and players will be able to select to play as either gender.
One of the most important things listed about consoles is that it is unique to the new generation of consoles and it is not planned to be released for PS4 or Xbox One by developers. The producers are also speaking about getting the bounty scheme back, with each region having its very own bounty. Therefore, they are not likely to carry it to Dutch India if the player has a reward in the Mughal Empire.
Although all this data seems to correspond with the manner in the last few times the Assassin’s Creed games have played out, this may all be false. And that’s very likely, given that Valhalla was only published in October, and it’s only been a few months since then. But if it does turn out to be very real, it will be interesting.
