With the fifteenth anniversary of the license, it was expected thatUbisoft roll out the red carpet for the license Assassin’s Creed during the last Ubisoft Forward, and that is what happened. Between Assassin’s Creed Mirage and Codename Jadewe were finally able to learn a little more about Assassin’s Creed Infinity, which will therefore not be a game, but a kind of HUB grouping together several games. How it works ? Well we don’t have a precise answer on this yet, but all we know is that the first game of this HUB will fulfill an old fantasy of fans of the series: yes, one Assassin’s Creed in feudal Japan arrives, and it is called Assassin’s Creed Codename Red.

The latest rumors were therefore true, since this Project Red was revealed during the Ubisoft Forward with a very small CGI teaser, which, we can say, does not show much. We obviously assume that it will be an open world, but we still do not know what it will tell or if we can choose between several characters.
All we know is thatit will be developed by Ubisoft Quebec, notably with Jonathan Dumont (Assassin’s Creed Odyssey) at the head of the team in charge of the project. We are now waiting to know the real name of this episode.
The first game to be part of Assassin’s Creed Infinity
With mention of the fact that the game is integrated withinAssassin’s Creed Infinitywe could have feared that it was a smaller and less important experience than a real episode, but that will not be the case a priori.
Assassin’s Creed Codename Red is, according to Ubisoft, built as a real AAA game of the license, and which will be the next premium game after the release of Mirage. We are therefore facing the next big game of the license, which will simply have a link with Assassin’s Creed Infinity which still needs to be clarified.
It is easily understood that Assassin’s Creed Codename Red won’t be released for a few years, 2024 at the earliest. It will therefore be necessary to be patient before learning more (probably after the release ofAssassin’s Creed Mirage), and we also have to see how it will be integrated withinAssassin’s Creed Infinity.
