It appears that four more Assassin’s Creed games are in the works, which could bring the total to eight new titles.
According to the latest rumors online, Ubisoft is putting everything on one card with the Assassin’s Creed franchise and is developing Mirage, Codename Red, Codename Hexe and Codename Jade alongside Assassin’s Creed four more titles.
Assassin’s Creed Project Nexus is set to become a VR game to be unveiled during E3 2023. But there’s more to come if the rumors are true: Assassin’s Creed Codenamed nebula, raid and echoes should also be in the pipeline.
Each project is developed by the different Ubisoft studios. This is how Project Nebula is to be created by Ubisoft Sofia, which has already developed Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation and Assassin’s Creed Rogue.
Ubisoft Chengdu has Project Raid, a cooperative free-to-play game with up to four players and PvE in the making. It is believed that the characters of the title will all come from the Assassin’s Creed universe.
According to other sources, Project Echoes will be created by Ubisoft Annecy and will be a pure multiplayer game.
Also, Ubisoft obviously intends to return to its yearly release cycle, with the big titles said to be quite different from the last. Rumor has it that the first Assassin’s Creed game, Mirage, will be released in August this year, followed by Assassin’s Creed Nexus shortly thereafter (2023). While these are tentative release dates, sources have revealed that Codename Red is planned for 2024, Assassin’s Creed Invictus for 2025, and Assassin’s Creed Hexe for 2026.
It remains to be seen what is true of these rumors.
