With several projects in development, Assassin’s Creed is changing in the coming years. At the Ubisoft Forward event on Saturday – early Sunday in India – the publisher unveiled a pinnacle into the future of the franchise through a distilled roadmap. Assassin’s Creed announcements include a standalone mobile game set in China, the Codename Hex title set during witch trials, and the previously leaked Project Red set in the long-requested setting of feudal Japan. At the center of these attractions is Assassin’s Creed Infinity, which is described as a live-service platform for upcoming entries.
With that, let’s take a look at the future of Assassin’s Creed:
assassin’s creed infinity
Following the launch of Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Ubisoft wants to create a central hub that links the various AC games together. Think of it like an animus, which allows players to move through various historical settings through the eyes of a skilled assassin. “Infinity is going to be a hub that will unite all of our different experiences and those of our players in meaningful ways,” said Assassin’s Creed VP Marc-Alexis Cte. With Project Infinity, Ubisoft is looking at bringing back standalone multiplayer experiences in the veins of cooperative mode in Assassin’s Creed Unity.
Assassin’s Creed Red/Japan
Extensive leaks and speculation later, Assassin’s Creed Codename Red is now official. With this entry, players will be sent to the heart of feudal Japan, where they master the art and weaponry of shinobi. As Ubisoft’s next premium flagship title, it will feature the open-world RPG elements that have been trademarked in recent entries. The title is being developed by Ubisoft’s Quebec division – best known for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – under the direction of Jonathan Dumont. More details regarding the same will be available in time.

In the meantime, what is Ubisoft’s Montreal team working on? described As in “the darkest Assassin’s Creed game ever”. Codenamed Hex is set in the later stages of the Holy Roman Empire, particularly during the witch trials of the 16th century, and is led by creative director Clint Hawking, best known for the early Splinter Cell games. Ubisoft released a teaser for the same, in which an A-shaped amulet hangs from branches in a misty forest. during PresentationCote called it “a very different type of Assassin’s Creed game”.
Assassin’s Creed Mobile/Z/China
For the first time ever, Assassin’s Creed will let you create your own custom character. Set in 215 BC ancient China, Codename Z is the first Assassin’s Creed open-world game to grace mobile devices — Android and iOS, we believe — featuring core gameplay mechanics from mainline games. Players can park atop the Great Wall of China, explore bustling cities, engage in intense combat, and even send a drone bird to survey locations.
