There's a poster in the division 2 with a viking looking guy holding a spear and a apple of eden
In the upper part of the poster is the word Valhalla( viking afterlife for brave warriors)
So could this be the next assassin's creed game
Totaly!!!
I prefer vikings over rome
Proof that this is true:
Locations of the previous games were leaked in older ac games
Ex: origins was leaked in black flag
There's a kotaku journalist that leaked 5 or 6 previous ac games
He said that the legion leak is fake
There's artwork for a viking themed assassins creed
All this results that it's very likely the next game will be set in the viking age
Nothing confirmed tho
I still think rome will be the next game but my opinion is divided
50% rome
50% Vikings

Assassin's at the time of the Vikings hmmm i thought Vikings were more honorable fighters then being assassins. At least that's what i know about Vikings they were not afraid of death as long as it was an honorable death. But maybe i am wrong and that there were cowardly Vikings as well … why not.

So my vote goes out to Rome.

I've seen this video by JorRaptor too. Shortly after watching it, told my friend to buy a new good PC to finally play new AC games XD

Still, I don't think that we're gonna see viking era in the next game. It has to be Rome. Let me tell you why.
Telling the truth, we haven't seen the origins of Assassins. What we've seen in Origins game were just some sort of roots. Bayek and Aya aren't Assassins yet, so I think that there should be a straight strand between the names of "The Hidden Ones" and "Assassins". Also, we haven't seen how was the motto of Assassins created ("Nothing is true, everything is permitted") and three main rules of the Brotherhood.
And, of course, we haven't seen the origins of Templars. The Ancient Ones are, well, look like stupid cult we've seen in Far Cry series. They don't look like the real enemies. As for me, true Templars have some other roots, and these roots can be truly connected to Jesus Christ, and I really hope that there will be some sections (maybe, like breaks from Unity) where you can visit the time when Jesus was alive and see, what really happened.
As we can see, there are lots of plot holes, which should be fixed and called an Ancient Era of Assassin's Creed games.

Still, viking game can be a nice entry for the next-gen Assassin's Creed. Despite Unity was a good game, it is mostly known for its bugs and glitches. It was a completely new version of the Anvil Engine and it didn't really worked well.
The viking setting is not something people want to see. I mean, really. Most people want Japan, but game in Japan just has to be something great and epic in the whole series. Viking setting can be a good platform to work out some mechanics and features.

And yes, we know that Ubisoft do not comment any rumors. They can even close this topic just because this can do something with their plans. So please, do not close it. It is okay to discuss player's discoveries in your games and look forward. Thanks!

Just rumours.... Nothing but rumours. It would be more interesting to see an AC game set in Byzantium. There would be Vikings too, of course. The Varangian Guard of the Eastern Roman empire (Byzantium) was made up of Vikings and later Saxons... So, this hypothetical Byzantine game would combine Romans, Greeks and Vikings at the same time! Also, the map would be huge, including modern day Turkey, Greece and the rest of the Balkans...

When this idea of a Viking Age AC started get attention on here, I didn't dig it. Didn't make sense. But some of the more knowledgeable contributors on here offered some insight into what such a game would be like and I really warmed to it. All the pieces would be there: the sailing, the small villages, Norse gods and mythological monsters. I'd be surprised if we DON'T see a viking game at some point. And I know Feudal Japan tops a lot of player's must-go lists as far as AC settings, but it's my least favorite, seeing as how that Ghost of Tsuhima or whatever it's called it supposed to come out and that looks pretty much like an AC game, minus the lore. I'd still buy it and play it, though.

Who knows if Ubi puts little Easter eggs here and there? The viking Easter egg might only be a fun tease and not really be anything more than that. But I do so love all the fan speculation and rumors.

There still may be a little bit of truth to the 2020 Rome game as a way to close out the trilogy before introducing a completely revamped AC on the new consoles. which (I think) is Ash's current project.

What makes you think assassins are cowards and not honorable fighters?

Cheyenne1894

What makes you think assassins are cowards and not honorable fighters?

Because the way i know assassins ( like in Odyssey ) is that they kill their targets in a sneaky and so a cowardly way and they try to avoid face to face combat.

There is nothing honorable in killing your target in a sneaky not face to face combat.

Same goes for archers snipers soldiers with firearms etc. etc.

AC Vikings............ I hope Ubisoft will make:
1.. character customization or at least choose the gender. Just like Odyssey.
2. I want to play a female character on par or even better than Kassandra. :rolleyes:
3. the rest is up to imagination...... vikings outfits,... YAAAAY!!! If you probably watched Vikings the series, you'll know what I'm talking about.

Νinja/shinobi is the Japanese equivalent of an Assassin: Sneaky and stealthy "non-honorable" killer from the Far East.

On the wiki we see that ragnar lothbrok was part of the norse brotherhood and became master assassin at 22(younger than altair)
So this might say it all
And the argument with "vikings only fought mano a mano and didn't sneak around" are wrong
Becouse who would have tought that assassins creed will take place in the middle of the peloponesian war
Which is a WAR

There are a few reasons I can think of why people are interested in having an Assassin's Creed game set in Japan. After all shinobi are one of the if not the first thing that pops into people's heads when thinking of ancient assassins.

That said I wouldn't want the next game to be Japan since I think a game involving it should be part of it's own trilogy like Ubisoft has been doing lately. So the next one should be Rome or the Vikings to connect to the theme of this trilogy, then the next trilogy could be an East Asia one that goes to places like Japan, China, India, etc.

Given how Odyssey went it'll be the cheesiest pop culture dreck based more on History's Vikings than actual historical sources.

Also, 10 horned helmet variations to loot. And Ragnar Lothbrok, maybe even during beginning tutorial to let people know it's the game about Vikings.

With beautiful and touching music.... and heartbreaking story....It's your chance, developers! Chance for outstanding Game.

I think the leak's fake, as I usually do, despite Kotaku's decent track record in regards to accuracy. But if...IF...there's ANY truth to the rumor, I'm absolutely down with it. Besides, I thought the 2020 game was supposedly Rome to close out Aya's story and the ancient trilogy, at least according to the other "leak."

BTW, what was the video footage being shown? That wasn't supposed to be leaked footage, was it? 'Cause if it was, holeeee $@#*!

DreadGrrl
04-06-2019, 02:29 PM
I’m honestly not overly excited about the idea of Rome: especially since it wouldn’t be a new locale.

A Viking era game is very exciting for me. A bit of info was dolled out about a Viking age Assassin in Rogue’s modern day segments, so I hope that will be expanded on. It was tied in with the Viking invasions of the British Isles. The Viking era could give us a huge map with a lot of water. Naval exploration on a longship might be a lot of fun.

ninja4hire10
04-06-2019, 02:43 PM
I just finished all three vids linked in the above posts, and they do make some interesting points/arguments that make the Viking rumor feasible, even outside Jason's confirmation. I do think they should finish the trilogy first for closure, provided the plan (as rumored) was an AC ancient trilogy.

Originally I was against the Viking thing, but now I'm all for it, 'cause yeah, all the pieces are there: large full scale battles, naval conflict, Norse gods and mythology (having to fight the Fenris Wolf..yeesh.)

So I'm so-so on the truth of the rumor now after the vids, but I'll say ti again: if it's true, yippy. That's my official comment.

04-06-2019, 02:47 PM
Jason Schreier track record might be good but I agree it is more speculation than anything. None the less it excites me. I understand people that are more for a trilogy of sorts and favor a Rome setting.
Personally, I favor the Viking Era.

Honestly would like that. Also, ISU artifact shield sounds like we can have more fun with it as they build on the RPG track they seem to be going.

Either way, if an AC was set in the Viking era, it would be something to want to see.

I really like the idea of both settings. With Kotaku's track record I will say the Viking game is 95% likely. This does not mean I think the Rome setting is not going to happen. I think there is a possibility of the Unity & Rogue situation.

AC Legion - Current Gen

Do you think they’d do that again? It seems risky.

Rogue was ignored by a lot of people (myself included), as it came across as more a consolation prize for previous gen players than a legitimate entry in the franchise.

I’ve now played Rogue, and I think it is terrific. I really don’t think that I’ve Ubisoft did the game justice by not including a version optimized for the Xbox One on release (or shortly thereafter).

Vikings were raiders who travel across the water in attacking the coastlines for goods. There is no way that Vikings are going to be the next AC game setting. Think about this.....Crusades, American Revolution, Italian Ress, French Revolution, Victoria Era, Russian Revolution...all of those setting has a huge impack to the world history. Vikings didn't do anything that could effect the world history. Roman Empire did more then what vikings did.

The whole series of Assassin Creed was about Order vs Brotherhood (aka Chaos or even Free Will) Roman Empire would fit perfect into it. Spartacus would be perfect for an Assassin. History states that Julius Ceasar was Assassinated. History of Crusades was actual lead by a Pope. Pope are Victian citizen. Victian lies within Italy boundaries.

So it's official
The next assassin's creed game is going to be in the viking age
This has been confirmed by a guy at kotaku that also accurately leaked all the previous games since ac4
So ac4, rogue, unity, syndicate, origins and odyssey
6 games leaked by 1 man
You can say this guy knows his stuff
The game is codenamed kingdom but the name would be changed
Some interesting names would be valhalla, ragnarok or maybe slain warrior
Also is very likely that the asssssin logo would be changed for the valknut (symbol of the slain warriors)
Kotaku said that they knew from 2 independent sources that the next game would be vikings
When the division 2 tease got to the surface, kotaku acted
"Never pounce on an advantage as soon as it appears. Wait till it stands to have maximum effect"
Uncle Vesemir's words
They learned from that, and acted in time for this info to get to a wider audience
If they posted the leak earlier, a lot of people wouldn't belive them, but rather that ancient rome was the next setting
This guy im talking about responded to the legion leak saying it was fake
All this proves that the next assassin's creed will be indeed in the viking age
At this point im 99% sure that's the case but unless ubisoft says it it's not written in stone

P.S. i wann hear what are your toughts regarding this

You have no idea freiend
Vikings might be the best seting for a ac game ever
I assume you don't think very highly of them like most people
I know their history and culture
Get some info first then comment
Let me tell you
They were a fascinating civilization and weren't as savage as some describe them
Sure, they liked violence, but that's becouse this was their belief
They weren't afraid of killing becouse their religion permitted them
Not like christianity
It's in human nature, it's in our nature to be killers and we can't fight our own nature
That's why i prefer the norse religion over all the others
I don't belive in odin or the norse gods but their ideals
Christianity is no more than a tool used by the strong to keep the weak in order
They implanted fear in our minds
The fear of hell and eternal suffering
They wanted to stop us from doing immoral things
And they succeed
That's why i think most religions are bad and my creed is the words spoken by the assassins
Nothing is true, Everything is permitted
Reminds us thet no one can't tell us the truth and that we must find it ourselves
And it reminds us that morality or law should not be a dead end, but expand beyond that
All the great people were immoral and none of them were afraid of change, of breaking the rules in order to bring change
The vikings lived by the very same principles by an extent
That's why this setting is perfect
Most people who described vikings were invaded by them
So tell me if i invaded you, would you describe me as how i am or would you describe me as being a barbarian?
They did this to slender they name, did this becouse they knew that their words will remain
So i say their culture was more than you think

DrkLrdLegion
04-07-2019, 09:25 AM
If there is going to be the next AC game, it has to fit perfectly with the idea of ISU.

Another thing, it also has to fit into a setting of where there is two factions
ACI through AC Syndicate: Templar Order vs Assassin Brotherhood.
AC Origins: Cleopatra vs Ptolemy (Ancient Order)
AC odyssey: Sparta vs Athenia. (Ancient Order)

It also has to fit with the theme of settings
Crusades
American Revolution
Italian Ress.
Russian Revolution
Victoria Era
French Revolution

All of the above has a huge effect on world culture


Roman Empire would fit perfect.....
Several Reasons are this......

1. Having Ancient Order finally end completely.
2. Discuss more about ISU culture falling and add more about Adam/Eve's ideas of rebelling against ISU. (Roman God Culture fall apart due to the Rising of Christianity)
3. Roman Empire faced many uprising within their territory, hint "Chaos" among the Order.
4. Roman Empire territory reached the certain area that used to be apart of Persian Empire, Greek Territory, and Egypt.

As far as i know, the vikings invaded parts of Britain and Iceland. But they mostly did plunder coastal regions. They were the best sailors of their time, there are also theories that they discovered "America" long before Columbus. I don't know anything about their culture and i wouldn't designate invading and plundering as culture.

I agree that the "killer instinct" is in human nature, but that only concerns a minority. There are hunters and gatherers and i think that most of us are gatherers. Morality is an instrument to protect gatherers from hunters. Without this protection mankind would not have survived that long :D

Kotaku made accurate predictions in the past but they were all released just months before the game was ready for the public. This time, he made a prediction about a game that will be released one or one and a half year later. So, it is less certain than before.... I want to see AC Vikings as much as the next person, make no mistake. The setting will probably be in South Sweden...
However, if the next game would be AC Byzantium, we would see the Vikings interacting with the Eastern Roman Empire too!

I would love it too :D But this is the same like it was before with "the next AC is 100% from Rome empire!"... just rumors...

I would still prefer Vikings over the antient Rome xD

Ya me too, much as I'm fanatical about Rome... but my beloved Ezio (<3) had 2 games there already.
We won't actually know for sure till official statements are made or closer to release.

I think it would be alot of fun and very interesting

I would like both the Vikings and Ancient Rome as settings so I don't really mind what it would be and I won't take it seriously until we have a confirmation from Ubisoft, but I'm pretty sure they would complete the Ancient trilogy (with Rome or something else) before going to the Vikings, who are in Middle Age.

04-07-2019, 01:27 PM
I was hoping for the next AC to take place in England or Europe during the middle ages, a Viking setting would be the next best thing so I'm perfectly alright with it if it's true.
I would buy it in an instant.
A Roman Empire setting would be okayish I guess but imho a bit to similar to the Greek setting, a Japanese setting would be my last choice of preference.

Jason Schreier has been right a couple times about the next AC game so I think this rumour holds quite some merrit.

Do you think they’d do that again? It seems risky.

Rogue was ignored by a lot of people (myself included), as it came across as more a consolation prize for previous gen players than a legitimate entry in the franchise.

I’ve now played Rogue, and I think it is terrific. I really don’t think that I’ve Ubisoft did the game justice by not including a version optimized for the Xbox One on release (or shortly thereafter).

I do not know if they will do it or not, but I certainly think it is possible.

I was one of the people who bought Rogue instead of Unity at the time, because I was still on last gen.

The gameplay itself was a lot like Black Flag, but the story was new. Personally, I thought it was a good game.

The difference this time around is that there is no new game in 2019.

If there is going to be the next AC game, it has to fit perfectly with the idea of ISU.

Another thing, it also has to fit into a setting of where there is two factions
ACI through AC Syndicate: Templar Order vs Assassin Brotherhood.
AC Origins: Cleopatra vs Ptolemy (Ancient Order)
AC odyssey: Sparta vs Athenia. (Ancient Order)

It also has to fit with the theme of settings
Crusades
American Revolution
Italian Ress.
Russian Revolution
Victoria Era
French Revolution

All of the above has a huge effect on world culture


Roman Empire would fit perfect.....
Several Reasons are this......

1. Having Ancient Order finally end completely.
2. Discuss more about ISU culture falling and add more about Adam/Eve's ideas of rebelling against ISU. (Roman God Culture fall apart due to the Rising of Christianity)
3. Roman Empire faced many uprising within their territory, hint "Chaos" among the Order.
4. Roman Empire territory reached the certain area that used to be apart of Persian Empire, Greek Territory, and Egypt.

I like the idea of an Assassins Creed in the Ancient Roman Empire this would end the Ancient Trilogy very good.

An Assassins creed in the vikings era would be pretty cool but I would like to see first an game what ends the Ancient Timeline.Like the did it with ACIII, IV and Rogue. Unity and Syndicate had no connection and I think this was bad.

But Ubisoft dont want to connect the games anymore and the confirmed wen they made an new game to go first for the time period and then to story, characters etc.

Vikings? Seriously, I am so tired of Viking themed games it would be nice to have a change. There are so many cultures out there, its sort of impossible to imagine these devs are running out of ideas. Personally, I am so bored of Vikings. Its always the same endless Norse mythology drivel. Give us Franks! Gauls! Anglo-Saxons! Frisians! Scotland! Something different. There are so many different cultures around the same time Vikings lived (I find Anglo-Saxon and other European cultures far more interesting than Vikings). I understand Vikings sell, almost always because the people buying these products have misconceptions about Vikings and somehow idolise them.

The fact here is that we need more than Vikings to teach us more about the world. Vikings had a strong role in shaping many nations and as a pirate entity they were quite brutal, but at the same time other European people fought back against those vermin and ended up defeating them. We need to hear more about those. How about an Assassin's Creed where you play a Briton trying to survive an Anglo-Saxon take over? I mean how cool would that be?! What about some of the German tribes fighting against Rome? We need more Ubisoft.

What about Incan/Aztec/Mayan empires? I am sure a lot can be told about them and you could somehow tie Black Flag to the Mayan/Aztec portions of the game? Please consider other histories!

Like the idea of a viking setting , and Jason from Kotaku normally is right about these "leaks"

He is.

I guess I'm just skeptical still this time because there doesn't seem to be any sort of concrete evidence along with it. Often the leaks come with something, even if it's just a grainy screenshot. But anonymous "sources" just seem kind of sketchy.

But if Jason trusts them, there must be something to it.

Keep in mind that it appears there are two teams working on these games.

So, even if there had been some sort of validity to that leak (which is definitely not confirmed) the Montreal team was still working on Origins at that time.

It's possible something changed between then and now.

Pic above is awful. Vikings should look more realistic! Not like in children's books, on the development of reading skills. But at the same time game about vikings can't be without a bit fantasy. All good games about vikings use some fantasy. Without it game will be rather dry!

Why do people around the world like The Witcher 3 so much? Because the game has a spirit of paganism and its erotism. Paganism in good sense. Paganism as closeness to nature. Europe is christian only 2 thousand years. But tens of thousands of years it was pagan. And paganism is still deep inside of us. All of the most favorite religious holidays today have a pagan basis. Just let's take only Easter. Millenium by millenium of paganism.....not all of europeans were so happy to accept new, brought from afar, Middle East religion, enforced by ruling elites. The resistance was everywhere. But the cruelty against "disagreed" had no borders. It was real henocide.History is written by victors and we know not so much about that. Game about vikings must be imbued with the spirit of paganism!

The name Ragnar Lodbrok comes from old norse sagas/mithology so its a figure taken out from rl history which means it cud be used here as well. There is no rl evidence of him acctualy living outside of stories and myths but he is a well known figure in norse colture and mythology.
Dont get me wrong that doesnt mean the leak is true just saying there is no reason to not use his name if they will be making AC series set in viking age.

I think it says the main character is an ally of radnar Lodbrok. I'm a bit excited, Britain is gonna be included, I hope Scotland gets a good look in, & I hope the picts aren't just prey. Cos the picts kicked ***! We kicked the crap out of the romans (They needed to build 2 walls for their protection).
I have to say that I am not happy about the co-op stuff. I just want to play any & all AC games the way I want to play them, on my own & on my own time. If I want to pause a game to do stuff in SP, it doesn't affect my game in anyway, shape or form. But playing multiplayer or co-op is a pain in the ares! If co-op is optional, then that is fair enough, because I know some players on this forum have asked for it. But only as an option! And don't put in any trophies like complete 5 co-ops or use xxx ability in co-op. Please at this not too late a stage in development. Allow me to play the game & achieve 100% playing on my todd!

The info states playing an **ally** of Ragnar. But yeah, playin an assassin with norse mythology in the mix? I'm game, especially if it's going to be an evolved form of Od. Kinda sad to see naval combat will be toned down. Expansion of gear and builds is (almost) always nice. It'd be amazing if the areas show our influence on the local economy; poor to wealthy, run down to built up, etc. I'd love to be able to destroy or (re)build settlements. Of course, nothing is official, but it's definitely fun to speculate about it.

IF this is partly accurate, I really hope there's more intriguing things to this game than what I read here.

Toning Naval battle down... does that mean in how you fight or that you won't be doing much of it in story or side missions? Either way, why bother having it at all?

I'm not into the CoOp thing so I won't be doing any of that. I kinda like the notoriety build up in different kingdoms thing.
It sounds like there won't really be a main homebase, but settlements with a little customization we can do... I'm basically ok with that, but I'd prefer that we can really make them awesome, and hopefully there's more to settlements than just existing. Maybe they'll have crafting in them or buying items we need (reminds me of Fallout 4).

I like the Conquest Battles to weaken enemy territories. It would be fun to be able to have reasons in story to raise up or take down whole territories like a War game...
I usually don't believe most of this stuff, so we'll wait & see but some of it sounds decent depending on how they structure it.
Some of it sounds pretty passive and mild, so if it's true, I'd hope they go the other way and make it stronger than weaker

The screenshots out there look more like quick mechanics tests before the artwork has been added, either that or they’re targeting low spec mobile.

If this is all true then I’m glad to see more of the strategy game element coming out in terms of territory control, not so happy about the reduction in naval warfare (especially for such a famously seafaring people), I’d rather they refined and improved this ever further with more naval roles than just warship (fishing perhaps). But it’s still pretty dubious as a leak and even if it were accurate we all know what’s planned now could totally change within 2 years.

Well if we say the rumors are true and next AC will be about vikings the reason for reduction of naval warfare is pretty logical, and that is that the viking longship design was never meant for ship vs ship fighting its not what their ships were designed or used for so it actualy makes perfect sence to tone down on sea compat up to a point of pretty much eliminating it completly as far as ship vs ship combat goes if they want to be historicly correct about it.

You won't play as ragnar
But an ally
Even read what i said?

Relax bro, it was a joke reference to Fallout 4. A name sounds better than, "Ally of name". Even play video games?

The question is, will they have to have an extra long wrist blade in order to get through all those layers of animal fur? :P

On the wiki we see that ragnar lothbrok was part of the norse brotherhood and became master assassin at 22(younger than altair)
So this might say it all
And the argument with "vikings only fought mano a mano and didn't sneak around" are wrong
Becouse who would have tought that assassins creed will take place in the middle of the peloponesian war
Which is a WAR

This. Listen to any historians who really know their stuff, and the word "assassination" is going to come up when referring to Viking Britain because that is exactly how the Danelaw was established. The tribal kings were targeted and eliminated in order to make a final two-state division possible.

I used to think this too, but it turned out that I was wrong. Not only did Vikings fight at sea, the "row fast and disable the enemy by ramming" technique is really a very Viking technique. It's Odyssey where the prevalence of this strategy is a bit out of place. The Vikings also used combinations of spearmen and archers as part of their ship-to-ship warfare.

It's also true that the Vikings were into sneak attacks on coastal targets with smaller ships under cover of darkness, which tallies with their guerilla tactics on land: another reason why the Assassin thing actually fits quite well with Viking culture.

I cud be wrong about this though if i rember my history correct the viking longship was primarly a transport/exploration ship, it certanly didnt have any sort of ram to hit other ships with, also while i am sure vikings participated in some naval battles that rly wasnt their specialy as far as their naval accomplishments go its more about exploration, navigation and their method of ship building.
Since primary strong points of a longship are shallow draft, very high speed and manuvrability, light design and being duble endeed(meaning they didnt rly have a back and front), so while a superb desing for raiding and exploration not rly an optimal one for naval warfare.

Again i cud be a bit rusty in my history so if you have any info of the viking sea battles i wud be gratefull if you share it cuz i wud love to read about it.

Also about ramming being out of place in Odyssey i certanly cant agree on that since raming was a signature move of the ancient Greek warships

PS: i went and rechecked and while your description of the viking naval combat is correct it is also a historical fact that it was a relativly rare occurance outside of vikings fighting other vikings but you were right on tactics used and it defenatly did happen. Than again as i said before naval combat wasnt rly their primary strongpoint which comes down to the design of the ships they used.

The screenshots are fake.

Doesn't bode well for the leak itself now.

This doesn't matter to the theme itself. It boils down to Kotaku's record on AC leaks; if they've ever been wrong about a setting after declaring it confirmed, then it must have been a long time ago because I don't remember it!

(And in particular, Jason Schrier. He's never been wrong, and it was yet another confirmation via him)

I'd love a game in the Vikings area and the setting seems really interesting, but I really hope the leak is not entirely true because I don't want to co-op missions at all. I disliked the fact that we were forced to play those missions in Unity to have more ability points and I hope it won't be the case again.

I feel that a Viking setting would fill out the 'trilogy' perfectly, with Egyptian, Greek, and Norse mythology and settings/cultures. A Roman setting might actually be too close to Greek, plus we already had Roman antagonists in Origins. A Viking setting would also somewhat bridge the gap between the previous two games and Altair.

My hope for the following generation of AC games would be to move east. Settings like ancient or medieval China or India could combine urban and wilderness settings, plus lots of ancient ruins.

I watched vikings, the wohole thing i mean
And yeah, the show is partly why im excited about this
But mark my words
Ubisoft might disappoint you
The characters won't be as likely as the characters in the show
We might not see them at all couse it could be set in another time period
Before or after ragnar
And you might wanna know that rollo wasn't the brother of ragnar
He was just a random clan chief

Or maybe like The Last Kingdom series like urter raddison something adopt by ragnar raddisson ,and have young ragnar in that series

Ragnar was not the only Viking in the world! Vikings' world was much bigger than only Lothbroks! No need to keep fixating on one person, no matter how great he is. Frankly speaking, I don't want to see Assassin's Creed about vikings as some poor variation of Vikings series! Just take only Iceland sagas....every saga is a possible movie or game masterpiece! https://bit.ly/2JHgnAP

Rumours about Assassin's Creed Legion have failed. There will be Watch Dogs Legion. And now.... most probably next game will be about vikings!
