According to a new report by well-known journalist Jason Schreier, Ubisoft will announce several new Assassin’s Creed games during this Saturday’s Ubisoft Forward event. Check out the complete details below.
Multiple New Assassin’s Creed Games To Be Revealed at Ubisoft Forward
According to Schreier, we will see a mobile game and two other titles for PC and console at this weekend’s event of Ubisoft Forward. The first of the latter two, codenamed Red and developed by Ubisoft Quebec City, is set in Japan. The second, however, is called Hexe, is in progress at Ubisoft Montreal, is set in the period of the Holy Roman Empire, and has to do with witch trials.
Schreier says both Red and Hexe will be part of Assassin’s Creed Infinity, which was announced last year. Neither game is expected to arrive before 2024.
Assassin’s Creed Jade, on the other hand, will be a mobile chapter set in China. Then there is also a VR Assassin’s Creed Project Nexus: chapter playable only through VR devices. It may be announced, but not shown during the Ubisoft Forward. And finally, a new DLC of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be announced as well.
Here’s the list of new Assassin’s Creed games that are to be announced during Ubisoft Forward 2022:
- Assassin’s Creed Mirage
- Assassin’s Creed Project Red
- Assassin’s Creed Project Hexe
- Assassin’s Creed Project Jade
- Assassin’s Creed Project Nexus
- Assassin’s Creed Valhalla DLC
Also on Saturday, Ubisoft will show more on Assassin’s Creed Mirage, the existence of which was confirmed last week. Schreier says that “Assassin’s Creed Mirage will veer away from the role-playing game elements established in recent series entries and instead aim to return to the stealth focus of early titles, in which players sneak around to perform assassinations.”
As for Ubisoft, yesterday the Chinese giant Tencent announced that it had increased its shareholding by buying almost half of Guillemot Bros.
Recall that the Ubisoft Forward live broadcast will be held on Saturday 10 September at 12 PM PT / 3 PM ET / 8 PM BST / 9 PM CEST, and on this occasion, there will be updates and news on various games and projects from all the Ubisoft teams in the world. September’s Ubisoft Forward will be broadcast on YouTube, Twitch, and the official Ubisoft website.
