Assassins's Creed games in order

Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed is one of the most popular video game franchises. The series takes the players to different moments of history, mixing fiction with real events and historical characters to create a narrative about the Assassins' order and their fight against the Templars throughout thousands of years.

The franchise started in 2007 when the first title was released. Since that moment, the series has been loved by players and lauded by critics while winning several awards. This helped to create a constant flow of developing, in an almost yearly frequency, new Assassin's Creed games.

The last title of the series, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, was released in 2020 and was a massive success after becoming the most sold Assassin's Creed game ever, and possibly the one fans have most enjoyed. It takes the players to a new location: the Vikings' lands and the Norse mythology. This installment has been the twelfth major title and the twenty-forth (counting spin-offs and sub-series) of the franchise.
