More and more leaks have been coming out lately about Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok, the next apparent Assassin’s Creed title that puts us in the shoes of a Viking assassin. While it hasn’t been officially confirmed, recently an Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok listing has apparently been spotted on Amazon Germany’s web page.
The listing was specifically for Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok: Valhalla Edition, which would likely be the Collector’s Edition version of the game if it ever released. However, the listing has since been taken down, if it ever existed at all.
The last Assassin’s Creed game, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, came out back in 2018, and it’s been a year since then. Ubisoft has made a promise in the aftermath of bug-laden games like Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate that they would stop yearly releases, so they’re at least keeping their word.
Since it’s been that much time since Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, now might be the best time for Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok to come out, likely during the holiday portion of this year to make it a launch title for the Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X.
However, we don’t even have confirmation that Ubisoft is working on the game, despite the Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok listing. An announcement like that would likely be reserved for E3 this year, or some other big gaming event before or after that.
While what we’ve “learned” from the various leaks about Ragnarok sounds interesting, including not just Scandanavia but the British Isles as a location in the game, various politics and interacting with political figures, it’s up to Ubisoft to confirm that those features are actually in place.
With the Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok listing now removed from Amazon Germany (again, if it existed at all), the responsibility is now Ubisoft’s to announce whether the game is coming out or not. Whatever the answer is, we’ll just have to wait.
