Although for now there is nothing confirmed, far from it, the next focus in the Assassin’s Creed saga would be called Warriors, for the new generation of consoles and PC, in addition to in 2022.
With an Assassin’s Creed Valhalla still very present, since it arrived just a few months ago and with an intergenerational launch, which also continues to bet on new content and DLCs, it is normal for Ubisoft while they are watching the new installment. And is that since everything started with Assassin’s Creed in 2007, the developer has opted for releases every very little time.
Despite the fact that when the Assassin’s Creed franchise comes to mind as an annual, this time it seems that the new one would not be like that; if the rumors surrounding her are true. The new installment would be known as Assassin’s Creed: Warriors, with release in 2022 and a setting during the Japanese Edo Period.
This time it would be an exclusive game for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S and PC , with a female protagonist named Akako Shiratori , an ” appendix ” to the brotherhood of assassins in Japan . But the leak offers us some more details, such as where it will be and how it will be set.
Set mostly in the city of Tokyo , it seems that the Jomsviking system has even been tried to recruit new assassin recruits. On the other hand, it seems that it will receive a strong inspiration from Japanese mythology, with enemies to face Oni (demons) and Yokai (spirits), all under Japanese folklore.
