Ubisoft is teasing the next entry in the Assassin’s Creed franchise right now on Twitch. There have been a number of rumors about the newest Assassin’s Creed game for a while now, with many fans suggesting all sorts of theories for where the series could go next, throwing out ideas which include everything from ancient China to the reign of the Aztec peoples.
Some of the most prominent Assassin’s Creed rumors had to do with the age of the vikings. Initially thought to be called Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok, there were a number of spoilers which had been allegedly leaked online earlier this year that indicated Ubisoft was attempting to make the era of Norse mythology the next destination for the series. Although prominent members of the industry discredited these rumors, a leaked achievements list later surfaced which, while it did drop the Ragnarok title, also placed the game, now called Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, squarely in the age of the vikings.

Now, a livestream session is being broadcasted on Twitch as a teaser for the next Assassin’s Creed game, with the help of digital artist BossLogic. Known for his creative projects and incredible fan art mashups, BossLogic is currently dominating Ubisoft’s livestream by simply showing off his artistic skills in real time while soft, relaxing music plays in the background and players are encouraged to answer Assassin’s Creed trivia questions.

It’s unknown just exactly how much the next Assassin’s Creed game is planning on leaning into the stranger parts of its setting’s mythology, if it does indeed take place (as is hinted in the art video above) during the time of the vikings, but it’s likely that the game will eventually feature DLC that, while probably not in-canon, could see the main character batting gods and ancient creatures from Norse mythology just like they did in Assassin’s Creed Origins.
Despite some players who have found the series to become overly repetitive, the Assassin’s Creed franchise still has a large fanbase who are surely very happy to hear of this new game’s announcement, evidenced not only by the over-thirty thousand Twitch viewers who are tuning in to watch BossLogic draw but also by the fact that Assassin’s Creed Unity, widely considered to be one of the worst games in the entire franchise, was recently one of the highest-selling games worldwide after it was put on sale. It’s unclear just how different the next Assassin’s Creed will be from Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and other recent entries, but fans surely are happy to hear of its existence nevertheless.
