• "Assassins Creed 2020" is the next game installment from Ubisoft
  • It is also called "Assassin's Creed: Ragnarok" by many fans
  • A new game listing reveals that the game has a Mjolnir Editio giving weight to speculations that it will center on Norse Mythology

It is a general knowledge in the gaming industry that Ubisoft is currently working on the next “Assassin’s Creed” game. A massive leak containing the subtitle and several other crucial details about the game near the end of 2019 surfaced, and they seemed legit. Yesterday several sites reported about an Italian Gamestop listing of “Assassin’s Creed 2020” or “Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok” Mjolnir Edition reportedly releasing on Xbox One platform.

Earlier leaks and speculations claimed that “Assassin’s Creed 2020” will center on Vikings and Norse Mythology. It appears to make sense with the new listing revealing the ‘Mjolnir Edition’ of the game. The term Mjolnir refers to the mighty hammer of Thor, the Norse God of Thunder.

It certainly sounds like the name is something Ubisoft would come up with for a special edition of the game is indeed Vikings-themed. Unfortunately, the game listing first shared on Reddit, which is based on an image, could be fake, according to some users. For one, the listing has the same pre-sell code with another Ubisoft game, “Watch Dogs Legion.”

It only means that the image was a sloppy photoshop job. Another noticeable factor is the release timing of “Assassin’s Creed 2020.” Considering that Ubisoft is reportedly releasing “Watch Dogs Legion” sometime this year, it only makes sense that the gaming studio would only release one open-world RPG on the docket. Should Ubisoft release two titles of almost the same genre, it is risking the possibility of commercial cannibalization, according to PSU.

The widespread speculations right now about “Assassin’s Creed 2020” is that it will focus on Vikings and might arrive on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 this year. Last year, Ubisoft already delayed the release of some of its games to enhance them with Sony’s next-generation gaming console. While the listing appears to be a sham, it is fine to expect an official announcement from Ubisoft about “Assassin’s Creed 2020” anytime soon.

But, it is worth mentioning that the gaming studio has not confirmed yet that the “Assassin’s Creed 2020” will be officially called “Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok.” As for the other details associated with the game, it is wise not to get too excited until Ubisoft makes the announcement.
