The setting of the next Assassin's Creed game may have been discovered in The Division 2
This would be AMAZING.
We're having a lot of fun playing The Division 2 (which is markedly better than the original for one important reason), but the playground of a kind-of-post-apocalyptic Washington DC is so big that you'll forgive us for not finding this ourselves.
One player believes that they have discovered a big clue as to where the next Assassin's Creed is going to be set, following on from the recent outings in Ancient Egypt and Greece.
Ubisoft, the developers of both franchises, are known for hiding the set-ups for future games, so it is possible.
As first mentioned in the Assassin's Creed Wiki, a visit to one of Washington's museums will present you with an image of Vikings:
Not a HUGE amount to go on there, obviously, but the folk at Eurogamer got out their magnifying glasses and did a compare and contrast of what those vikings appear to be holding, and it seems to be none other than the Apple Of Eden, which Creed fans will know is pretty much the lynch-pin holding the entire franchise together:
So it looks like Assassin's Creed will be going the way of God Of War and taking us back to the world of Vikings.
We had previously chatted to the makers of Assassin's Creed Odyssey about the potential for setting a future installment in Ireland, but this sounds like a good alternative, too.
Whatever it is, we know that the Creed franchise is taking another year out, so we shouldn't expect the new one until closer to Christmas 2020.
