Assassin's Creed Persia Is Inevitable Says AC Art Director

Assassin's Creed Odyssey's Legacy of the First Blade DLC introduced fans to a new character named Darius from Persia. Upon seeing Darius, fans were expecting the next Assassin's Creed game to be set in Persia. With the launch of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, it seemed that Ubisoft may not be working on a new game set in Persia.

However, a Twitter user has claimed that according to the Assassin's Creed art director, "AC Persia is inevitable." If the statement is true, then fans can expect the series to feature Middle Eastern locations like Iran, Persia, and others.

If Assassin's Creed Persia happens, it will be interesting to see the timeline in which the game will take place. The way I see it, there could be two timeline possibilities: One could connect the events of Assassin's Creed Odyssey with Assassin's Creed Persia, but the game would be set way back in 400 BC. The second timeline possibility could be between the 9th and 10th century, connecting Assassin's Creed Valhalla to Assassin's Creed 1.

While it is exciting to hear that Ubisoft is looking into an Assassin's Creed game set in Persia, the claim made by the Twitter user cannot be taken as a confirmation. In fact, the AC art director didn't even reply to the tweet. There's no official word on this matter, and even if Ubisoft is planning Assassin's Creed Persia, chances are that the developer would not reveal it quite so soon. Currently, Ubisoft is busy with its recently released Assassin's Creed Valhalla, which is also set to receive two post-launch DLC updates next year.

Speaking of Persia, Ubisoft's Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake is set also set to release in January 2021. The Sands of Time remake was announced in September, but it seems that fans are really happy with the artistic look of the game. According to Ubisoft, the Sands of Time remake will feature new enemy character models, new cinematic sequences, enhanced voices, sounds, parkour animations, and a beefed up soundtrack.
