AC Valhalla Screenwriter Explains What Happened to the Ending

What happened to Eivor after the recent events of Assassin's Creed Valhalla? That's the question fans asked the main screenwriter.

Fans of Assassin's Creed had their a field day yesterday. Darby McDevitt, head screenwriter of Valhalla, held a session on Reddit, during which he answered some questions from the players.

Internet users took the opportunity to ask him about various facts, from his favorite assassins, scenes, characters and cut scenes to issues related to the development of AC: Valhalla or the game's storyline. A question was also raised about Eivor's fate after the game.

Reddit user SA090 asked McDevitt what happened to Eivor after the character left the village. Fans have long known that the heroine (or hero) was buried in Vinland (i.e. America), but even the last chapter did not explain what exactly Eivor was doing there after the events of Valhalla.

McDevitt replied that "presumably" Eivor was staying with the Indians befriended during the visit, and trying to learn as much as possible about the true nature of Odin, without the mythological envelope. So, as the screenwriter stated, sooner or later Eivor had to take an interest in the Great Temple, well known to the fans from Assassin's Creed III.

As you can see, Ubisoft does not intend to hide these events. So why wasn't it shown in the game? Apparently, the "map" of Vinland doesn't include the entire temple (only the door), and on top of that McDevitt didn't want Basim to have "too clear memories." Adding to the conundrum: what might the Great Temple look like in his time, i.e. in 2022?

Therefore, the screenwriter decided to focus on, in his opinion, the most important thing - showing that Eivor is striving to learn the true history of Isu.
