A user on 4Chan leaked that the next Assassin’s Creed game codenamed “Legion” is rumoured to be a cross-gen game releasing on 2020. It will be set in Italy at the end of the reign of Marcus Aurelius and during the struggles of his son Commodus and the year of 5 emperors. Players will get to play as Cassius or Lucia – a descendant of characters from Origins and Odyssey. It’ll feature Odyssey like features including choices and heavy RPG elements and same story for both characters.
It is made by Ubisoft Sofia to tie up some loose ends for the “Ancient Trilogy” and currently is more first civilization intensive than other game. Ubisoft wants to make it feel more like Assassins Creed while feeling like Odyssey to make old and new fans happy. The map is based on mainland Italy and a small part of Gaul and Germania.
