Game developer Ubisoft is rumored to be creating an Assassin’s Creed title set to take effect in 2020, but fans are calling for a different procedure this time. Even till now, the rumor persists that the sequel in the Assassin’s Creed series will be titled Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok.

However, Ubisoft is yet to unveil any considerable plans about the future of the franchise, but several leaks and rumors signal towards a Norse and European setting for the next entry in the popular open World Series.

Other rumors of the game speak about the simulation inside the Animus, which is expected to be established in the inception of Assassin’s Creed and Assassin’s Creed: Origins—the game that played the part of a soft reboot for the series.

That’s not all there is to these rumors. There were also things said about what might be included in the upcoming game.—to start with, the game map is rumored to be spread across Scandinavia and the UK, as an instance, also the next title was rumored to have its story focus on the rise of Christianity and the Norse religions.

However, that gives room for the question, ‘what do fans want to see and not see in the game?’ or what features and gameplay mechanics do hardcore Assassin’s Creed fans want to see cut out entirely from the game?

However, Reddit user, ObberGobb, asked, ‘everyone has been talking about what they want to see in Assassin Creed: Ragnarok, but what about what they DON’T to see? The thread begs for an interesting conversation—as any users seem to want Ubisoft to change from the more role-playing focused objective, like that of Odyssey and return to the more classic Assassin’s Creed taste.

As one user stressed, ‘I don’t want a massive sprawling map that has nothing new to offer after having explored 23% of it’, this thread became the one with most votes and engagement. Another user said, ‘character choices, dialogue choices, enemies that are just a waste of game space. I wouldn’t want to see any of these.’

Even critics’ extolled Assassin’s Creed Odyssey for its incursion into RPG territory. However, the more hardcore and vocal fans want the series to return to a more straight-oriented, action-laced roots. Here’s what another user said in the thread. ‘Absolutely no high fantasy stuff unless it complements the game, no dialogue choices. Also, I enjoy seeing RPG/customization mechanics brought back to Assassin’s Creed Origins/Unity, and also no massive empty world where life is not present.’

Then to crown it all, another user said, ‘I don’t want anything that was in Odyssey.’ Why is everyone fed up with Odyssey gameplay? These statements made by hardcore fans paint a stern picture for Ubisoft as its most vocal fans are fed up with the Odyssey pattern, but merely looking at it, the game is meant for everyone not necessarily for these folks on Reddit.

Notwithstanding, Assassin’s Creed titles have always been liked by mainstream, and with successful titles. For example, like The Witcher 3 pushing RPGs into the limelight, well, we can only be hopeful for a classic mode but— Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok would probably end up being similar to Odyssey in both scale and scope.
