Game files are often a great source of information about developers' unannounced plans. The latest example of this is Assassin's Creed: Valhalla. French youtuber j0nathan has dug up data that suggests that the game will receive an additional, third DLC.
So far, Ubisoft has only announced two expansions in the form of Wrath of Druids and The Siege of Paris. The potential third expansion in the files is described as Meteor. Most likely, however, it is not a proper title for whatever this project is. In the files, previous DLCs are marked with the names of the locations, in which their action was set. So Wrath of the Druids is listed as "Ireland" and Siege of Paris as "Francia".
Of course, in the case of the third DLC, we don't think we'll be playing on the surface of a meteorite. So the name Meteor most likely refers to something else. It is worth mentioning here a comment for the information published on the facebook profile of the Codex fan community. It reminds us that during the development process the code name for Assassin's Creed: Rogue was "Comet". The action of this game took place in northern North America, so it is possible that the third DLC for AC: Valhalla will once again take us to this continent. In the base game there was a section set in this location ( Vinlandia) and it was warmly received by the players. So setting the action of an entire expansion there would definitely make sense.
Of course, until the official announcement from Ubisoft to this information should be approached with caution. The third DLC might as well have been in the plans initially, but then it was abandoned, and only mentions of the abandoned idea remained in the game files.
It's worth remembering, however, that in February the developers announced that Assassin's Creed Valhalla would be supported longer and more ambitiously than AC: Odyssey. The installment set in ancient Greece received two large expansions, so this declaration of the developers makes the prospect of a third DLC for the latest installment anything but ridiculous.
Assassin's Creed: Valhalla was released in November last year on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4 and PS5 consoles and in the Google Stadia service.
