To conclude its Assassin's Creed Showcase, Ubisoft shared a look at what the future holds for the series with the reveal of two more upcoming games: Codename Red and Codename Hexe. The former finally takes the franchise to feudal Japan — a setting fans have been clamouring for for years now — and the latter appears to be based on historical witch trials. Neither is expected until 2024 at the earliest, with Assassin's Creed Mirage launching next year.
The very brief announcement trailer for Codename Red can be viewed above, and you can catch Codename Hexe below. Both of these titles will be part of Assassin's Creed Infinity, which is sort of like a hub for all future games in the franchise. You could think of it as a launcher, but details are still very light. It was also confirmed Ubisoft is looking into bringing back Assassin's Creed multiplayer, which is very exciting based on past attempts.
Speaking to VGC, series boss Marc-Alexis Cote confirmed these two upcoming games will skip the PS4 so the team can go all in on current-gen with a PS5 version. "We’ll announce the dates a bit later on, but we wanted to mark a change technologically and gameplay-wise as we’re moving to a fully next-gen — or current gen, I guess we call it — with the PS5 and the Xbox Series X."
