Assassin’s Creed: Codename Red (working name) is one of the biggest surprises among those presented on the occasion of the fifteenth anniversary of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. We’re basically talking about the next major chapter of the series, what will come after Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
Very little has been seen of Assassin’s Creed: Codename Red, basically just a suggestive teaser trailers in computer graphics that revealed the setting: feudal Japan, complete with a ninja assassin with a hidden blade. Fans have been asking for a greater Assassin’s Creed set in the East for years and they have finally been satisfied.
After the teaser more were provided generic details: will be a premium title and will resume the RPG structure of Assassin’s Creed Origins, Odyssey and Valhalla. It will of course be open world.
At the helm of development is Ubisoft Québec, the same studio as Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Directing the project is Jonathan Dumont, who has previously directed Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Odyssey and Immortals: Fenyx Rising. Dumont previously worked on Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory and World of Warcraft (for Blizzard Interactive).
Of Assassin’s Creed: Codename Red Ubisoft has not provided one release date or platform details. Making some easy assumptions, it is certain that we will not see it in 2023, the year in which Assassin’s Creed Mirage is released. More likely to arrive at the end of 2024 or 2025. For the platforms, we assume that by then Ubisoft will have abandoned the old generation of gaming machines to focus on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X and S. Of course, take these last statements with due caution , since it is only our speculations, not officially confirmed.
