Fans have been asking an Assasin’s Creed game set in Japan since forever
Since its release in 2007, the main series of the French video game publisher, Assassin’s Creed, has sold more than 155 million copies. The settings and historical eras included in each book in the series vary, for example, ancient Egypt or America during the Revolutionary War.
At its Ubisoft Forward event on Saturday, Ubisoft has hinted that new games would be released, claiming it will provide “a peek at the future of the franchise.” Two big games and a mobile game will be showcased by the corporation, according to the persons who requested not to be identified discussing confidential material.
Japan is the setting for the company’s first big game, code-named Red and created in Quebec City by Ubisoft. The second big game, Neo or Hexe, was created by the Montreal branch of Ubisoft and takes place during the last days of the Holy Roman Empire and centers on witch trials.
According to a Bloomberg report published last year, Red and Neo are both a part of Assassin’s Creed Infinity, a framework for upcoming games in the series that would have many settings. The two video games probably won’t be available until 2024 at the earliest. A representative for Ubisoft declined to comment.
Additionally, Ubisoft intends to showcase more of Assassin’s Creed Mirage on Saturday. The developer revealed the game last week after numerous leaks. According to earlier this year’s Bloomberg article, the game, code-named Rift, was originally intended to be an expansion for the previous title, Valhalla, and is set in Baghdad during the 800s.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage will depart from the role-playing game elements established in later series installments in an effort to return to the stealth focus of early games, in which players sneak around to carry out kills.
Let me clear the air on this; I need to corroborate more.
I've seen some stuff, but I'm not 100% confident on reporting on it yet.
People do a lot of witchcraft sometimes (photoshop etc.)
This week has publically shown how crucially important corroboration is. https://t.co/ftOqytacAD
