The new Assassin's Creed: Instead of Mexico and the Aztecs, it will be set in Baghdad

The information appeared from a relatively reliable leaker that the next Assassin's Creed will visit the ancient civilization of the Aztecs. And while the Aztecs and southern Mexico will not be completely dismissed, maybe it will be found in one of the following titles (like the Infinity project), the next installment still goes to the other side of the world.

That's what Jason Schreier says, whose word is stronger than any other. Schreier followed up on a report from earlier this year that claimed the new Assassin's Creed Rift would be a smaller and more focused experience. It evolved into a separate title from the expansion for Valhalla.

The main character will be Basim, a popular assassin from Valhalla, and now he added on Reddit that his journey will take him to Baghdad. Rift will not feature a massive open world like recent titles and will focus on stealth gameplay.

Schreier also referred to Infinity, a massive Assassin's Creed title that will evolve over the years through new worlds and stories, and will somehow pack all (or at least most) of the previous ones into one game.

"The next AC game is Rift, which is set in Baghdad”. said Schreier. “After that will be AC ​​Infinity, and while that’s going to include a bunch of different games/experiences/biomes/whatever you want to call them, I’ve heard about the main two and neither of them are Aztec." he says.

Assassin's Creed Infinity, a massive online project that will evolve over time, has been revealed Jason Schreier revealed and Ubisoft confirmed the new Assassin's Creed project. The new AC, codenamed Inifinity, is Ubisoft's biggest project so far, and it will be more of a platform than a game, that is, it is a live-service game that will be upgraded and changed over time.

While the classic Assassin's Creed games are all set in a specific historical period and geographical environment, Infinity will be a mix of everything and everything, will develop and upgrade over time, and will somehow be connected to the classic Assassin's Creed titles that Ubisoft still plans to release.

Schreier expects a smaller and more focused AC Rift by the end of this year or sometime in 2023, and Ubisoft will almost certainly reveal it on 9/10 of this year when it has scheduled a big Ubisoft Forward presentation. Ubisoft Forward is back, this time with two events showcasing never-before-seen news, gameplay, reveals, and more." reads the official blog.
