Not to get too ahead of ourselves but we're already looking forward to the next instalment of Assassin's Creed. Every time a new game in the series comes out it focuses on a new place and new time that lets you explore the culture and geography of a new era. So when we found out about Assassin's Creed Valhalla we were excited to explore a long-forgotten Britain. Now Valhalla has been released, we can't help but wonder where we're headed next. Right now it looks like that could be Persia.

First spotted by The Gamer, apparently, a fan asked the artistic director of the AC franchise, Rafael Lacoste when the franchise was going to reach Iran and the response they got was "AC: Persia is inevitable, do not worry."

This is going by the word of a fan though, it's not at all confirmed, however, it's not unlikely that Assassin's Creed would visit Persia just from the series history alone. Although Assassin's Creed has been around since 2007, Ubisoft was working on the Prince of Persia games before that. It's where the formula for a lot of the parkour mechanics and puzzles came from that went on to make Assassin's Creed the success it has been.

The Gamer article points out it's also essential to visit Iran to officially introduce the beginning of the real assassins the AC universe is loosely based on. The Persian Order of Assassins is the inspiration for the mysterious group of individuals influencing historical events and even "Nothing is true; Everything is permitted" is part of the real history of the order.

In Valhalla Eivor is introduced to the order with very little knowledge of the secrets the assassin's kept - it would be fantastic to see the order from the perspective of an initiate at the beginning of the order's life, even before the first Assassin's Creed game takes place.

Revisiting Persia but in the skin of an Assassin feels very fitting, so we can't wait to see if we do get the opportunity to explore an all-new part of the globe.
