Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok May have just leaked, could be biggest game in series

A number of retailers have recently — and prematurely — listed a game called Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok on their websites. The only problem? Ubisoft hasn’t announced the game yet, although an alleged leak of information about the title points to it being the biggest Assassin’s Creed game yet, for better or worse.

An apparent leak of information on Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok was posted to the message board site 4chan and subsequently shared on Reddit. Because of the potential for hoaxes here, we advise you to not get your hopes too high over this information, but it sounds as believable as anything else we’ve heard about the game.

According to the user, the game will be a cross-generational title and launch this September. It will apparently support four-player cooperative player, with a single protagonist that can be either male or female, similar to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The leak also said the game will continue to emphasize role-playing mechanics and will introduce weapon durability. It will also bring back sailing, as well as the hidden blade, the latter of which was absent in the last game.

According to the leak, the map will also be ridiculously big, covering most of northern Europe, and will include cities like Paris, London, and Kiev. It will take place in the 9th century, and should deal with Norse mythology, much like how God of War shifted away from Greek mythology in 2018. The user made mention of several temples protected by mythical beasts, including a dragon and a snake. Heavy emphasis was put on these sorts of battles in Odyssey.

We’ve had details “leak” about Ubisoft games in the past that ended up not being true, but this isn’t the first time we’ve heard that the series would shift to a Viking story. In fact, the first appeared to be from Ubisoft itself in The Division 2, and the leaker’s information seems to line up with what Kotaku reported in 2019. We’ll have to wait and see when Ubisoft likely announces the game later this year. Depending on how much information begins leaking out, that could be ahead of E3 instead of at one of the press conferences in June.

Ubisoft on Thursday announced that it delayed "a smaller unannounced premium game" to next year along with Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. It turns out that the premium game in question is Assassin's Creed Rift, and it has been delayed to spring 2023, Bloomberg confirmed on Friday.

An unnamed source familiar with Ubisoft's plans told Bloomberg's Jason Schreier that the game publisher's office in Bordeaux, France, which is heading the project, asked for more time to develop and polish Assassin's Creed Rift because it was falling behind in terms of the development schedule. The spring 2023 release window means that it could come out anywhere between March and June of next year. Ubisoft said in a press release that it would release the game in fiscal year 2023-24.

The Assassin's Creed franchise has become an integral part of video game culture. With 12 major titles under their belt, Ubisoft Montreal and Quebec have been expanding the ever-so-secret society of Assassins on a relatively yearly basis. Assassin's Creed: Valhalla was the biggest game yet, with over 100 hours of content between the base game and current DLCs, but Ubisoft is dreaming even bigger.

Assassin's Creed Infinity is starting to sound like the biggest game of all time, but news on the front has taken a backseat as of late. Ubisoft seems more focused on Skull and Bones, due out November 8, 2022.  That said, here's everything we know about Assassin's Creed Infinity, including release date, gameplay, multiplayer, and more.

Ubisoft made the announcement earlier this month that it was shutting down online support for 15 of their older titles, including Ghost Recon Future Soldier, Far Cry 3, and multiple Assassin's Creed titles. While fans knew Assassin's Creed Liberation HD was included in this list that would lose online and DLC functionality, a message on its Steam page suggested that even players who owned the title would no longer be able to access the game at all after September 1.
