With Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, Ubisoft decided to turn the tables by making Kassandra the most relevant protagonist for the installment. The French company already looks at the new generation with Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, the rumored Viking game that has already been made official and that aims at the end of the year for the current and the next-gen. A new installment that we will soon see in motion, and in which it will not matter to choose male or female protagonist. Why? Why both will be canon.
How will they do it? That is a surprise that the team is kept until we can play it. Darby McDevitt, narrative director of this new installment, has been the one who has explained that the Eivor man and the Eivor woman will be equally valid for the development of the history of this installment and, also, of the saga in general. "Both options are canon"
Both choices are canon, but we're not going to spoil how we managed that trick until you play the game. 😎

A step with which they differ from the previous installment, despite offering the same option to choose the gender of the main character. Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla aspires to be much bigger than all previous games, as well as to take advantage of the benefits of new generation consoles. But the question of how two such different options have managed to make canonical sounds very interesting. Perhaps that is why they have chosen the name Eivor.
We will be able to see more of the game soon, although its launch is not expected until the end of the year, probably with the new generation already in stores.
