KEY POINTS

  • Ubisoft has not yet confirmed if it is working on a new "Assassin's Creed" title
  • Ubisoft Forward E3 2021 event is scheduled for June 12
  • A new report may have revealed some details about "Assassin's Creed 2021"

Ubisoft has not yet announced any details about "Assassin's Creed 2021," but it appears that a recent report may have revealed the game's size.

Bloomberg reporter and industry insider Jaso Schreir may have revealed some details about the next "Assassin's Creed" game. In the new episode of the Triple Click Podcast, Schreier mentioned that he has heard that the next "AC" installment is massive in terms of size. He also noted that the game would be even bigger than "Assassin's Creed Valhalla."

Unfortunately, Schreier did not reveal any other details about "Assassin's Creed 2021." However, he somehow reinforced recent claims that an "AC" game in the works at Ubisoft Sofia was canned and would be transformed into a DLC for "Assassin's Creed Valhalla."

Rumors about the third "Valhalla" DLC recently made rounds online courtesy of Ubisoft insider J0nathan.

Recently, the French content creator revealed that the third unannounced expansion of "Assassin's Creed Valhalla" is in the works. On YouTube, J0nathan mentioned that he has discovered some details strongly suggesting a third expansion that has a code name Meteor. According to him, this DLC is currently being developed by Ubisoft Sofia in Bulgaria. 

The insider also believes that the supposed "Assassin's Creed Valhalla" Meteor DLC centers on Norse mythology and would focus on Musphelheim. The said expansion pack is believed to be set in North Africa. This is based on the entry the insider discovered in the game files, which reads, LocationWorldEntry_ACK_DLC_Muspelheim.

Furthermore, J0nathan believes the "Assassin's Creed Valhalla" Meteor DLC was not part of Ubisoft's original plan. Speculations claim that the sudden change in the game maker's plan may be due to the impressive success of the "Assassin's Creed Valhalla." It is worth noting that nothing in the information revealed by Schreier or J0nathan is official at this time.

Ubisoft has an event at E3 2021 called Ubisoft Foward, which is scheduled for June 12 at 2 p.m. ET. There will be a pre-show for an hour, which means the main event would start at 3 p.m. ET. Fans can watch the livestream of the event on Ubisoft's official YouTube and Twitch channels.
