A number of media outlets have shared information that the next part of Assassin's Creed will tell about medieval Japan, and the game itself will be released under the subtitle Warriors. Also, insiders report that a girl named Akako Shiratori will be the only protagonist.
It is assumed that the new part of Assassin's Creed will be released in 2022 simultaneously on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X. Events will unfold in Japan during the Edo period (1603-1868). The game will be able to recruit assassins, like the jomsvikings in Assassin's Creed Valhalla, as well as fight mythical demons youkai and they. According to an insider, Tokyo will become the main location, but the city received this name only after the Meiji restoration in 1868, previously it was called Edo.
Unlike recent Valhalla, where players could switch between genders on the fly, Warriors will only have one main character. Most of the playing time will be devoted to Tokyo. According to unofficial information, many references to the beliefs and mythology of the Japanese are planned - for example, we will face oni demons and youkai creatures.
Of course, all this at the moment is nothing more than rumors, but players have long been asking for an update to the setting of the Assassin's Creed saga.
