Ubisoft dedicated an entire segment to the franchise Assassin’s Creed at Ubisoft Forward 2022. The block saw the announcement of four projects coming from the series, including a mobile game, a new main title, an experience hub, and another flagship game coming alongside the rest.
The biggest of these announcements is Ubisoft Quebec’s upcoming mainline Assassin’s Creed game, currently dubbed Assassin’s Creed: Codename Red. Like recent flagship entries in the series, Codename Network is taking the globetrotting open world series to a new country and culture with a feudal setting of Japan. To top it off, the main character of the game is a shinobi. Not much else was said about the title and it doesn’t have a firm release date.
A second Assassin’s Creed game is also coming, though it’s a bit more of a mystery. This one comes from Ubisoft Montreal with the help of Clint Hocking, a former designer and director at LucasArts and Valve. nicknamed Assassin’s Creed: Project Hexe, the title just got a quicker teaser showing an Assassin’s Creed logo made of twigs hanging in the woods. Ubisoft notes that the game is not a traditional installment in the series, but did not elaborate on how far removed it is.
Both titles will live within Assassin’s Creed Infinitya curious new project from Ubisoft. Project Infinity it is a hub that will unite various games, although it is not clear how it works. Ubisoft did mention, however, that it is looking to create standalone Assassin’s Creed multiplayer titles, which would also live in the hub.
In addition to all that, Ubisoft also showed Assassin’s Creed: Project Jade. This entry in the series is a mobile game where players create their own assassins and explore an open world set in ancient China. It’s a different project from another Assassin’s Creed mobile game announced during the show, which will be exclusive to Netflix.
No release details have been given for the upcoming titles, but Ubisoft states that infinity and the projects within it will be released “in the next few years.”
