RUMOR: Assassin’s Creed Legion – Coming 2020 & Set in Ancient Rome?

Home / News / RUMOR: Assassin’s Creed Legion – Coming 2020 & Set in Ancient Rome?

Last year, it was officially announced that there will not be an Assassin’s Creed main title in 2019. Today, a user on 4Chan reports that the next Assassin’s Creed is reportedly called “Legion”, set in Italy in the era of Marcus Aurelius, during the struggles of his son Commodus and the year of five emperors.

According to the rumor, the game is set to feature two protagonists; Cassius or Lucia, who are descendants of the protagonists of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and it’s unclear if the canon is going to work like Syndicate or Odyssey, but it’s meant to feature heavy RPG elements and a story for both characters.

The game is being created by Ubisoft Sofia, and is the conclusion to the “Ancient Trilogy” and is coming in 2020 on next generation systems. It’s also the most First Civilization-focused game to date.

The main story is more involved in assassins and politics with first civilization and flashbacks to other points in Rome history being secondary.

According to the rumor, Ubisoft wants to make it feel more like assassins creed while feeling like Odyssey to make old and new fans happy. The game map is mainland Italy as well as a small part of Gaul and Germania like Libya in Origins and is set to feature a revised mercenary and cultist system. Big cultists and main story assassinations have those memory things.

Of course, none of the information above is backed by any official source, therefore it remains an unconfirmed rumor. For the original article, click here. Stay tuned for more updates!
