Ubisoft reveals five Assassin’s Creed games in development, including highly anticipated Japanese title

Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed celebration event revealed that five new titles are in development for the franchise, in addition to cross-media projects and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla DLC.

As part of Assassin’s Creed’s 15th Anniversary celebration, Ubisoft has unveiled multiple games in the franchise, while also providing additional context to Assassin’s Creed Infinity.

The franchise’s next entry, Assassin’s Creed Mirage, will be a story that “goes back to the roots of the franchise,” Ubisoft revealed, both in terms of setting and mechanics.

Following Valhalla’s Basim two decades before the game’s launch, Mirage will chart the new protagonist’s rise from street thief to assassin as part of the Hidden Ones and beyond.

Set in Baghdad, the game focuses on ‘black box’ assassination missions with the option to set traps and use the environment, as well as faster, agile parkour and a greater focus on stealth.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the next installment in the long-running franchise and is set in Baghdad.

Following on from Mirage, Ubisoft has revealed four more titles in the series in the coming years.

Ubisoft Quebec, which developed the critically acclaimed Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, is working on Codename Red. The title takes place in Feudal Japan in what Ubisoft is calling its next “premium” open-world RPG title for the franchise.

Codename Hexe is being developed by the Valhalla team and led by industry legend Clint Hocking. Given Hocking’s work on titles like Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, it seems that Hexe could be another more stealth-focused title.

There are also two mobile games in development for the franchise. The first, Codename Jade, is set in ancient China in 215 BCE. It will feature a character creation suite and be an open world mobile title. The second is being co-developed with Netflix for its mobile gaming division, but more details have not been revealed.

Ubisoft also revealed more news about Project Infinity. The project, which was expected to be a game-as-a-service title, will be closer to a hub that brings the franchise into one place.

It was also revealed during the stream that Ubisoft is exploring the possibilities for standalone multiplayer experiences within Infinity.

Also revealed was an Assassin’s Creed documentary coming to Netflix in the coming months, and a new DLC search chain for Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla.

The free update, aptly named ‘The last chapter’ will connect a series of unresolved storylines for Eivor and lead them to encounters with historical figures.
