In recent years, Ubisoft has been very restrained with the Assassin's Creed titles that it has been bringing to market. From being an annualized series during the time of PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and the beginning of the generation of PS4 and Xbox One, to having to wait several years between deliveries. The most staunch fans are wondering what happens with the next Assassin's Creed, since they have been giving content to Valhalla for a few years.
Just because they've lowered their release rate doesn't mean they're working less on the series. Recent rumors point to at Ubisoft they are working on about five titles in the series, of which one of them we know, and another would be released near the end of life of current consoles.
Assassin's Creed Mirage is coming with four other assassin games
Ubisoft is expected to showcase four new titles in the Assassin's Creed franchise, including the recently announced Assassin's Creed: Mirage, and a mobile game at Ubisoft Forward on September 10, 2022. The code names and settings of the new games were leaked by a tweet from Idle Sloth, citing a tweet from Tom Henderson, who initially confirmed the reveal.
Aside from the already revealed Assassin's Creed: Mirage, the other three main games include the codenames Nexus, Red, and Hexe. The code name Nexus would be a Virtual Reality game, which could come out on Meta Quest and PlayStation VR or PlayStation VR 2 and more platforms. The other two main games, codenamed Red and Hexe, will be part of the Assassin's Creed Infinity live service, which was first shown in July last year.
According to rumors, Assassin's Creed Infinity would be an open world game set in Japan, while its other part, Neo/Hexe, will be set in the time of the Roman Empire, with witch trials. Mirage is expected in 2023, Project Red is planned to come out in 2024, and Hexe was planned for 2025, but has been pushed back to 2026. More details on all Assassin's Creed titles in development are likely to be revealed at Ubisoft Forward on 10/2022. September XNUMX, along with other games from the French company.
It is not uncommon for there to be games scheduled for 2026, four years from now, because in game development, especially since they are more demanding, it is normal for such a large company to think several years ahead. Assassin's Creed Hexe could now be in the earliest pre-production phase, and if Ubisot's current expectations are met, would come out when PS5 and the Xbox series have been on the market for five years.
