A recent For Honor tease hints at an epic crossover event with Ubisoft’s biggest franchise.
The tease comes courtesy of For Honor‘s Twitter account, and it shows the Abstergo logo from Assassin’s Creed mixed in with the logos from For Honor‘s four factions. On top of that, the tweet itself contains Assassin’s Creed’s most famous quote: “Nothing is true, everything is permitted.” A full reveal is scheduled to debut on December 20th at 9 a.m. PT during a Warrior’s Den livestream on Twitch.

While it’s tempting to read this as Ubisoft adding a fifth, Assassin’s Creed-themed faction to its weapon-based fighter, For Honor just announced its Year 3 content roadmap, which includes four new heroes—one per faction—and four seasonal events. What’s more likely is that the first seasonal event will somehow involve Assassin’s Creed, though hopefully there will be more to it than just introducing a few cosmetic items for existing characters. The fact that the tease features the Abstergo Industries logo and not the Brotherhood’s eagle motif also leaves us with some questions.
For Honor‘s biggest expansion to date, Marching Fire, added an entirely new faction in the Wu Lin, which brought four new fighters to the game. On top of that, it introduced the game’s expansive PvE mode, Arcade.
Ubisoft is no stranger to crossover events between its multitude of properties and franchises. Ghost Recon Wildlands recently dedicated an entire event dedicated to Splinter Cell’s Sam Fisher, and its Operation Archangel story addition was a Rainbow Six Siege crossover. Heck, even Assassin’s Creed Origins revealed that Assassin’s Creed and Watch Dogs exist within the same narrative universe. It’s unclear how Ubisoft plans to maintain both series’ canonical stability with an Assassin’s Creed/For Honor crossover, considering one is a fictionalized version of actual human history and the other takes place in an alternate universe where samurai, vikings, and knights all waged the world’s first global conflict, but we’re willing to see where this goes.
