Assassin’s Creed 2022 Could Come To Brazil, Says ‘Valhalla’ Dev

Assassin’s Creed 2022 Could Come To Brazil, Says ‘Valhalla’ Dev

The wonderful thing about Assassin's Creed is that the entire history and the entire globe is on offer for players to dive into and explore a unique representation of a historical era. Fans have had plenty of ideas on where the series should head to next, and a writer on Valhalla has suggested that Brazil is the most sensible option.

Personally speaking, part of the attraction of Assassin's Creed are the settings that are reproduced and reinterpreted within the bounds of the series. From the simmering tensions in Boston during the American Revolution, the inescapable grime and cutthroat ambition of England in the Industrial Revolution, the mesmeric and dangerous dunes surrounding Egyptian cities, these are the places that stick with me as the unforgettable backdrops for a likely bizarre story about aliens and apples. Moreover, I seriously love seeing the sights of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, which is set in medieval England for the most part, because I recognise historic names of places near where I grew up. I also get a lot out of trailing after sheep in the fields and trying to take a good screenshot of them. Sheep aren't very photogenic animals, if you could believe it.

Right now, the theory is that the next entry to the series will be set some time during or following the Third Crusade and will involve the Assassins and the Templars at the height of their power and notoriety. It's even possible that the protagonist is a Templar that is then swayed to the cause of the Assassins due to the death of Grand Master Robert de Sablé. These rumours are all very well and good, but the Assassin's Creed community is continually coming up with settings and time periods for the series, and of course, everyone's got an opinion on where and when should be next.

In an interview with The Gamer, Assassin's Creed Valhalla senior writer Alain Mercieca shared their thoughts on the direction of the stealthy and shadowy series. "Personally there are many [possibilities], too many to choose from if I'm being honest," explained Mercieca. "As someone who is obsessed with history you could get me excited about a niche group of warriors in a lost society on the island of Malta and I'd be ready to jump into it and make it pop." However, they did say that there is a tangible gap in the history and geography of Assassin's Creed. "On a grander scale I do feel there is a rich tapestry of culture in South America that the brand has yet to explore fully," they continued. "From the Incas to the Spanish Conquistadors, it is a very fascinating time. Though Black Flag did touch on some of it, I'm feeling more the Brazil region."

Of course, this is hardly a confirmation of Assassin's Creed 2022's setting, it is an interesting admission from one of the members of the team. Presently, Ubisoft will have its hands full with the DLC for Valhalla, the first being Wrath of the Druids in Ireland and the second being The Siege of Paris in France. Once these are done and dusted, work on the next game might start alongside support for a third or fourth DLC, so we'll keep our ears to the ground on anything new about Assassin's Creed.
