If you consider yourself an AC fan, then you know the community has been barking at Ubisoft for an AC game that takes place in Japan for some time now. It makes too much sense. This ENTIRE franchise has been about Assassin’s, Templars and their effect on society. Shonibi’s or Ninjas are the MOST famous type of assassin in human history. Ninjas are cool.

So it’s nice to see rumors have hit the net claiming that the next game after AC: Odyssey could be set in the land of the rising sun. So where are these rumors coming from? Reddit.

Only time will tell. Until Ubisoft releases a statement this is all speculation and reaching. Take it all in with a grain of salt. I just hope it’s true.
