Barely a month after the highly successful launch of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, rumors about the next installment in the Assassin’s Creed series started popping up. According to a leak highlighted by a ResetEra member, the next game in the franchise is titled Assassin’s Creed Adder, and is due for release in 2020.

The alleged leak itself is nearly a month old, first showing up on the Assassin’s Creed subreddit. Reddit user AnonymousLeaker2020 posted an image showcasing the supposed title screen, and provided a short description of the game’s features. The image is fairly low-resolution and looks to be captured from a phone camera.
The author, who seems to be posting from throwaway Reddit account, claims that Adder is a sequel to Origins. The game’s story follows the lead character Aya the Assassin as she forms a guild in Ancient Rome. The leaker notes that Bayek will serve as a supporting character, and will be playable in certain missions.
A tweaked version of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood’s combat system will be implemented in Adder. Furthermore, there is also a new ranking system which allows your ‘Hidden Ones’ to “climb the ranks”.
“The game will be a collaborative project between Montreal and Quebec, with Melissa MacCoubrey making a comeback,” reads the Reddit post. The leaker ends the post with a statement hinting that there might be more leaks in the future.
It goes without saying that you should take this information with a grain of salt. Leaks in the gaming industry, especially for Ubisoft games, are fairly common, and, although unlikely, it’s possible that the image seen above is authentic. Either way, the game will likely undergo numerous changes throughout the development phase. A new Assassin’s Creed game is quite a ways a way, as the leaker claims Adder is due in 2020. It will be a while before Ubisoft treats fans with an official announcement.
