Earlier today, there were rumors surfaced online suggesting that the upcoming Assassin’s Creed game might take place during the Aztec era. However, Jason Schreier promptly refuted such rumors. The writer mentioned the upcoming installment in the series will be the more compact, stealth-focused game “Rift”, which would be set in Baghdad.
Basim, a character introduced in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, will appear in a spin-off game that will be developed by Ubisoft, according to Schreier’s earlier this year. According to reports, the game will have a considerably smaller scope than the mainline series and would have a greater emphasis on the franchise’s stealth element.
Before releasing the far more expansive Assassin’s Creed Infinity, Ubisoft will focus on this smaller game.
Only that “Rift” was initially intended to be an extension but seemed to expand in breadth to justify its existence as a standalone title is known about either “Rift” or “Infinity”. Despite receiving poor reviews for some of its most recent games, the Assassin’s Creed brand has been steadily expanding with Valhalla drawing enormous crowds in its first year.
However, the series has significantly strayed from its stealth-action beginnings and developed into a sizable action-RP brand, much like games like The Witcher 3. Many devoted fans of the series feel alienated by the new approach, which has drawn both acclaim and criticism.
If Schreier’s assertions are accurate, perhaps Assassin’s Creed fans will have a game to satiate their need for stealth. It would be fascinating to see what type of timeframe the publisher has for both games because Ubisoft has not yet made an official announcement on the development of their game in the series.
