Four new Assassin’s Creed games announced at Ubisoft Forward 2022

Four new Assassin’s Creed games announced at Ubisoft Forward 2022-featured

Publisher and developer Ubisoft conducted the Assassin’s Creed  2022 Showcase as a part of Ubisoft Forward 2022, providing a thorough roadmap for the popular gaming franchise’s future, in part to commemorate its 15th anniversary. Four new titles were unveiled and described, along with the start of a documentary series, a few more morsels regarding products, and the confirmation of one more piece of expansion material for AC Valhalla.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage

Before Ubisoft Forward, Assassin’s Creed Mirage was already well-known due to several leaks that led to the corporation confirming its existence. And sure, the rumors were essentially accurate.

The story of Mirage, which takes place in Baghdad in the ninth century, centers on the development of Basim from a street robber to a skilled assassin. Mirage takes set 20 years before the events of AC Valhalla, where Basim previously made an appearance as a supporting character.

Mirage is a narrative-driven action-adventure game that takes off many of the RPG-like advancement features seen in more recent titles like Valhalla. It will return the franchise to its roots. It will emphasize assassination, parkour, and stealth tasks. Baghdad is being constructed to accommodate the increased emphasis on stealth and parkour and will be divided into four distinct districts.

Assassin’s Creed Codename Red

The series is, as was revealed at Ubisoft Forward, finally moving to feudal Japan. Since Assassin’s Creed Codename Red will be the next significant mainline AC game and will keep the RPG mechanics from Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla, the much-desired historical setting will become a reality.

A brief clip showed a ninja (or shinobi) standing on a rooftop with a concealed blade and ninja to a short sword.

Ubisoft Quebec is in charge of the game’s development, while Jonathan Dumot serves as the creative director. Dumont served as the game’s creative director for Immortals Fenix Rising and AC Odyssey in the past.

Assassin’s Creed Codename Hexe

With Assassin’s Creed Codename Hexe, Ubisoft has hinted at what they’re calling a “new sort of Assassin’s Creed game.” The word “Hexe” means “witch” in German, and this new book assumes that it takes place during the Holy Roman Empire’s 16th and 17th-century witch trials in or around present-day Germany.

Only a gothic woods environment and the series emblem made of twigs were seen in the short teaser.

Clint Hocking, a seasoned Ubisoft designer, is in charge of the project, which makes the idea of a “different kind of game” particularly intriguing. Hocking is renowned for creatively twisting gameplay mechanics to support player-driven narratives; he has previously worked on Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, Far Cry 2, and Watch Dogs: Legion.

Assassin’s Creed Codename Jade

Four new Assassin’s Creed games announced at Ubisoft Forward 2022


Aristocrat’s Creed An open-world AC game called Codename Jade will take place in Tang Dynasty-era China. Codename Jade, which has yet another popular historical setting, will be a touch-friendly mobile game for iOS and Android phones and tablets.

Given the enormous market for mobile games in China alone, which we anticipate would respond favorably to the setting of Codename Jade, this makes a lot of sense. For the first time since AC Unity, a custom character builder will be included in the game.

Marc-Alexis Cote, the former creative director of AC Syndicate, is leading the development of this project.

AC Codename Jade has no stated release date.

Along with its TV series adaption for the video streaming service, Ubisoft also revealed at these announcements that yet another AC mobile game was being developed with Netflix Games. Other information was withheld.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: The Last Chapter

After two years of post-launch DLC for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Ubisoft is now ready to wrap up Evior’s breathtaking journey. To promote the next free quest line, which he claims will premiere in only “a few months,” game director Gareth Glover attended the Ubisoft Forward conference. According to reports, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: The Last Chapter “ties together parts of the narratives developed throughout the game” and even includes a few unexpected historical characters. I’m not sure whether I’m ready for it all to stop, especially as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has shown to be among the finest Assassin’s Creed games.

Assassin’s Creed Codename Jade

The development of Assassin’s Creed Codename Jade is a huge project for Ubisoft. According to reports, it will have “all the famous Assassin’s Creed gameplay but designed for an experience on touch controllers,” and it will be the publisher’s first open-world Assassin’s Creed game for mobile devices. Assassin’s Creed Jade will finally let you “parkour over the Great Wall of China,” let you build your character, and be set in China (a country the franchise previously visited in Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China in 2015). Sadly, no release date for Assassin’s Creed Jade was provided, although it seems that it won’t happen until at least 2024.

Assassin’s Creed Netflix series

In 2020, Ubisoft said that it was developing an Assassin’s Creed Netflix series, but nothing further has been known since then. Fortunately, Marc-Alexis Cote, executive producer of the Assassin’s Creed series, was there to provide some further information. Although the Netflix Assassin’s Creed series is still “early in production,” Cote suggests that Netflix, Ubisoft Film and Television, and showrunner Jeb Stuart have worked closely on it. This is fantastic news as Stuart is not only the showrunner of Netflix’s Vikings: Valhalla, but he also wrote the screenplays for some of the greatest action films ever made, like Die Hard and The Fugitive.

Assassin’s Creed Netflix game

Ubisoft and Netflix are collaborating on several projects in addition to the Assassin’s Creed franchise. Although the publisher provided few details, it did state that it is developing a brand-new Assassin’s Creed mobile game that would only be made available via the Netflix Games platform. As part of its rapid expansion into the video game industry, Netflix has made numerous well-known acquisitions, such as Oxenfree’s Night School Studio. In the next years, this mobile game will likely become quite popular. Expect to see Netflix Games Studio take more action in this area.

Assassin’s Creed Codename Red

Fans of the franchise have dreamed about Assassin’s Creed Japan ever since Altair first dove into a bale of hay, and Assassin’s Creed Codename Red makes that ideal a reality. That’s right, Ubisoft Quebec, the studio behind Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, will allow us to experience a “very strong shinobi fantasy” in what the publisher refers to as the “next premium flagship product and the future of our open-world RPG games on Assassin’s Creed.” Although it seems like we’ll have to wait until 2024 at the earliest to play it, it is thrilling to have the chance to explore medieval Japan in an Assassin’s Creed game.

Assassin’s Creed Codename Hexe

Although I’m unsure of what to think of this one, I do know that I’m eager to see more of it. With a spooky teaser that included barking dogs, decaying woods, and a wooden Assassin’s Insignia dangling over an open flame, Assassin’s Creed Codename Hexe made its premiere. The tone of the Assassin’s Creed series has drastically changed, and Ubi promises that Hexe will be “a different sort of Assassin’s Creed game.” Ubisoft Montreal, the company that created Assassin’s Creed Valhalla most recently, is working on this next flagship game, and we can’t wait to learn more about it. Unfortunately, it seems like we’ll have to wait a long, particularly since Codename Red and Assassin’s Creed Mirage are scheduled to be out before Hexi.
