Assassin’s Creed 2019 Rumored Setting Revealed, Here’s What We Know
Assassin’s Creed Origins is currently enjoying a spark of new interest thanks to its newly-released Curse Of The Pharaohs DLC, but developer Ubisoft may already be in deep development of the next installment of their open-world stealth franchise. Rumors have been ablaze about where and when the globe-trotting series could land in 2019, with a bevy of interesting places presenting themselves as contenders over the years. According to one especially noteworthy rumor, Assassin’s Creed 2019 could very well be on its way to ancient Greece.
According to a number of sources with ComicBook, the rumored setting of Greece has been internally suggested from as far back as 2015, while Assassin’s Creed Origins was still being conceived. This led to an initial conclusion that Greece may have been a playable area in Origins, but it has now become apparent that the historical setting has been saved for 2019’s forthcoming adventure.
The site’s Ubisoft sources also state that Assassin’s Creed 2019 is currently in the midst of production, having begun all the way back at the start of 2017. Development is underway for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, but with no mention of a Nintendo Switch port at this time. While it would be a shame for Ubisoft to neglect Big N’s hybrid console, the most likely scenario points to completing development on more prominent platforms before moving on to the Switch.
While ComicBook assures the reliability of their sources, they do admit that a few grains of salt are advised in the off-chance this rumor ends up being false. However, it should be said that one of the rumor’s corroborating sources have unveiled a number of accurate scoops in the past, including the game’s title and a first look at protagonist Bayek before Origins‘ was officially reveal.
What do you think? Are you intrigued by the potential Greek setting, or should Assassin’s Creed 2019 finally go to Feudal Japan instead? Is Ubisoft only going Greek because God of War‘s Kratos has forever left the region behind?
