Report: More Assassin’s Creed Games Detailed Ahead Of Saturday Reveal –

Ubisoft promised that it would show “the future” of Assassin’s Creed series in September. And according to a new report, that promise will include several new games.

The report in question comes from insider Tom Henderson and TryHardGuides and claims that Ubisoft will talk about this deluge of Assassin’s Creed game below its Ubisoft Forward event on September 10. The first is Assassin’s Creed Mirage, which Ubisoft officially announced after many leaks and reports. As expected, the event will have a deep dive on this entry which is said to be released in the spring of 2023.

Project Red, one of the other games on the list, has also been previously reported but not confirmed. This new report confirms an earlier report by insider Jeff Grubbindicating that it will be set in Japan be a part of Assassin’s Creed Infinitythe upcoming live service game. It also mentions that the main character is a “samurai-style assassin”, and although the concept art showed a woman as a playable character, it’s likely that players will be able to choose to play as a man or woman, just like the last two entries.

Project Hexe, however, is a new title from this latest report. It will reportedly also be part of Infinity and will take place in 16th century Europe and center around witch hunting. It will apparently also be the “darkest” entry in the franchise.

Axios reporter Stephen Totilo also noted that he heard about the game’s previous codename in the report — Project Neo — and said it was “in the context of an effort to bring multiplayer back to the series.” But he admitted he wasn’t sure if it was still in the works or “what kind of multiplayer would take.” The series hasn’t had traditional competitive multiplayer since the 2014s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag where players had to blend in to hide from their opponents while chasing their own objectives.

Project Jade is also another title and is reportedly a mobile game set in China. This would be the second smaller installment set in the country from the 2015s Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China also took place in China.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla‘s final piece of DLC will likely be for the show as well, which was hinted at beforehand. That’s what the company said during the June flow where it spoke of “the final episode of Eivor’s story” before also noting that it would be revealed later this year. It is unclear if this will be a free update or premium DLC.

The last title from the report is about Assassin’s Creed VR game allegedly called Project Nexus. However, the article notes that it is not clear if this game will be part of the event. Convincing footage of Nexus was allegedly leaked in April, showing its menus and mission selection screen. The person who posted it on Reddit also claimed to have played the game and spoke briefly about its combat, mission design, and movement. Ubisoft had already announced one Assassin’s Creed VR title in September 2020, but hasn’t provided official updates since.

This report does not include any information about the rumored remake or remaster of the first one Assassin’s Creed or the crossover mission with Assassin’s Creed Origins. Previous leaks and evidence (as comparison pictures, a new logoand report for the former and one cheeky social media post for the latter) means these still have a chance to appear somewhere, but they remain unconfirmed for now. Either way, it looks like Ubisoft will set the record straight at the end of its upcoming stream.
