A new set of rumors about the next installment to the famous “Assassin’s Creed” series is now making rounds online. The rumor claims that the upcoming game will be officially called “Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok” and will have a single Danish Viking playable male character. The game will reportedly take place in the early part of 1000 on the map of Scandinavia and other places in the British Isles.

“Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok,” according to a new set of rumors shared on Reddit, the major political theme will be set in Saxon Kingdoms and will focus around the conversion to Christianity of the Norse. The claim also revealed that Ubisoft’s Creative Writer Darby McDevitt has a major role in this game, which reportedly suggests that he influenced more Irish history and well-known figures in the upcoming game. Surprisingly, the rumor claimed that the writer has a character named after him in the game, which is Christopher Darby.

The tipster also shared on Reddit that his source is a developer working on “Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok.” There is also a mention of quests in “Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok” happening in Norway and Ireland, with the latter evolving into Celtic folklore mysteries following a search for missing kids while the former has the main character climbing a mountain and seeing a specter of Odin. The early 1000s time frame appears to remove all the doubts about the upcoming game, not centering on First Civilization.

While these new set of rumors about “Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok” is impressive it is still unknown how assassins fit with these sort of details. It can be recalled that “Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey” did not feature assassins, and fans are anxious that the upcoming title might follow its footsteps. But, earlier rumors claim that the next game will be set a millennium following the birth of order, suggesting that assassins might as well return.

In Sept. 2018, Ubisoft Game Director Scott Phillips revealed that all future titles in the “Assassin’s Creed” series would include gender selection, which seems to align with the previous leak that players can choose between a male and female protagonist. It is worth noting that these details are based on rumors with sources that we do not have any way of verifying.

As always, we suggest taking these details with a considerable amount of salt and with skepticism. We will share more exciting information about “Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok” as soon as we stumble upon new ones.
