Have you seen the Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok – Valhalla Edition listings on Amazon Germany or Gamestop Italy? Whatever your answer is, we can assure you it’s totally fake, but don’t lose hope yet.
Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok – Valhalla Edition – Why It’s Fake?
Back in 2018, we had Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and Ubisoft hasn’t yet announced a new title, but Amazon Germany had accidentally leaked this “Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok – Valhalla Edition” and it’s more than dubious.
Previously, Kotaku did a report on the next Assassin’s Creed game, and how it could be Viking-themed and an Easter egg was spotted in Division 2 as well. However, the leaked listings from the two retailers may be fake.
The Division 2 Easter egg was in the form of a poster in the game with a Nordic God that held the Apple of Eden. The Apple of Eden is an essential part of the Assassin’s Creed games, appearing in all of the titles. The theme of the incoming Assassin’s Creed game could be Vikings, but there is nothing official on this. We will surely learn more at E3 from Ubisoft when they should reveal whether they’re planning on releasing another Assassin’s Creed game in the near future or not.
Let’s take a look at the Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok – Valhalla Edition listing and see why they’re fake.
On the left, you can see the one from GameStop Italy, which is fake since it has the same presell number as the Xbox One version of Watch Dogs: Legion – Resistance Edition.
On the right, the Amazon Germany listing looks more legitimate, but Games Radar’s Austin Wood debunked the listing, explaining why it was also a fake. The listing had a rather strange description, saying “It is unknown whether and when this article will be back in stock.”
Austin Wood then used Forensicallyto see if this listing was a clone, and the tool confirmed it was actually a clone of a sold-out listing for Jotun, the Valhalla Edition.
While he cannot confirm this is exactly what happened on Amazon Germany, the listing is too similar to Jotun’s listing.
Nonetheless, Ubisoft may very well be working on a Viking Assassin’s Creed since they did directly tease it in Division 2, and the developer is known to add Easter eggs in their games and tease future titles. Plus, the PS5 and Xbox Series X launch would be a great time for a new Assassin’s Creed game coming to the next-gen consoles.
