Assassin's Creed: Ragnarok Leaks - Cross-Gen AC with Vikings 

RUmour has it that Assassin's Creed (Codename) Kingdom will release in 2020, launching as a cross-generation title for current-generation hardware and their next-generation counterparts. 

A new leak has revealed the actual name for the title, Assassin's Creed: Ragnarok, centring the game around Vikings and kingdoms which span from Great Britain to Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland, with each kingdom being split into separate settlements and holds. 

With the game's reported 2020 release, it is unlikely that Assassin's Creed: Ragnarok will be present at this year's E3, especially given the early state that is seen in the game's recently leaked screenshots. 

Settlements within the game will allegedly feature a level of customisation and an in-game economy, with large-scale conquest battles returning to the series after their debut in Odyssey. The legendary weapon Mjolnir is also said to be present within the game as an artefact, like Odyssey's spear of Leonidas.

Co-op is also said to be present within Assassin's Creed Ragnarok, allowing friends to play together in most side quests and during exploration. Many other mechanics from Odyssey such as naval battles, eagle vision and the series' RPG mechanics will also be present within the game. Ubisoft Montreal are reportedly leading the cross-generation project. 

The protagonist of the new game is rumoured to be the legendary Ragnar Lodbrok, who helps to create the "Great Heathen Army", a coalition of warriors from Denmark, Norway and Sweden who invaded and controlled a large section of Great Britain in the 9th century.

While the screenshots that are provided with this leaked information give it an air of legitimacy, it is worth noting that this information originates from 4chan, which means that this information should be taken with an extra helping of salt. Like all leaked information, there is a good chance that this information is false. Even so, a Viking addition to the Assassin's Creed series is undoubtedly an interesting prospect.

I agree with this. As for the end of the article stating this info may be fake (and it could be) - I don't agree with this for the simple fact that in various AC games there have been mentions of both Samurai assassin and Viking assassins so the likelihood that the next AC game installment will be one or the other is very high.

I'd like to see Vikings before Samurai but I honestly would be okay with either haha. Currently playing Black Flag since I haven't played it in years and want all the achievements on my xbox one x and just completed 100% on AC3 and AC Liberation.

After Black Flag i'll likely redo Origin for all the achieves and then get the newer stuff that has come out in Odyssey that I've not done yet (done most of the newer stuff).Quote

Well they hinted at vikings in the division 2. You can see a poster of a viking holding the apple of eden.

Ragnar Lodbrok as the main character? I hope not because he's been very successfully portrayed in Vikings so people would undoubtedly compare the two. Ragnar is seriously one of the best TV show characters of all time IMHO.

I really doubt that Ubisoft can do a better job. But since nobody really knows if Ragnar was a real person or not, he definitely fits.Quote
