New Assassin's Creed stars Vikings, coming in 2020

This Division 2 poster has "Valhalla" written across the top of it and depicts what appears to be a Viking holding the Apple of Eden.

A rather interesting Easter egg has been spotted in Tom Clancy's The Division 2, which has set the tongues of Assassin's Creed fans everywhere a-wagging.

The Assassin's Creed series is easily one of the longest-running modern video game franchises, right up there with the likes of Call of Duty and Battlefield.

That report comes courtesy of Jason Schreier at Kotaku, who says that he received confirmation of the game's setting from two independent sources, months ahead of the teaser's inclusion in The Division 2. This Norse Assassin's Creed is said to be codenamed "Kingdom", and will come out in 2020 (Ubisoft has announced there will be no major AC game in 2019).

Dallas selected the 27-year-old pass rusher out of Boise State with the No. 34 pick of the 2014 National Football League draft. Flowers is a great player, but he has not produced at anywhere near the level Lawrence has since joining the Cowboys in 2014.

One of Assassin's Creed's Pieces of Eden, the Apple, has been one of the most prominent ties in the Ubisoft franchise, with versions of it appearing in the original game, Assassin's Creed II, Brotherhood, Revelations, III, Syndicate, and Origins, as well as numerous comics, novels, and the live action movie.

Interestingly, this Viking rumor (and it is still a rumor, so take it with a grain of salt) would seem to bust previous rumors that the next Assassin's Creed would be set in Rome.

The Apple of Eden, for the unaware, is a powerful relic in the Assassin's Creed franchise.

Before moving forward, it's worth mentioning that this is not the first time a Viking theme has been teased for Assassin's Creed. Both Origins and Odyssey have detailed how forgotten members of history discovered the value of killing key figures as opposed to waging wars, giving rise to the Hidden Ones.
