How trustworthy is the leak?
Jonathan is considered a reliable source in the Assassin’s Creed community: In the past he already correctly predicted the crossover between AC Odyssey and AC Valhalla. Also, prior to the release of Valhalla, he shared some information that turned out to be correct – such as that the Hidden Blade is returning or that the main character will be called Eivor instead of Jora.
Jason Schreier, considered one of the top sources of inside information, also commented on Jonathan’s leak:

According to Schreier, many details of the new leak should be correct: These include the spring 2023 release date, the Baghdad setting and the return of the gameplay to the roots of the series. Again, it shouldn’t be true that you should be able to explore different cities.
The new leak should largely confirm Baghdad as the location of the next part of the series. You can find out which setting the GameStar editors would have liked in the following article:
