Ubisoft’s upcoming Assassin’s Creed Codename Red has been a topic of much speculation and anticipation. The game, set in feudal Japan, is one of the most eagerly awaited entries in the franchise.
A recent leak may have shed some light on the potential release window for this exciting new installment.
A Glimpse into Feudal Japan
Ubisoft has confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Codename Red will transport players to feudal Japan, a setting that fans have long requested. Rumors suggest that the game may feature two main characters, a samurai and a shinobi.
However, it’s unclear whether these characters will have separate narratives or if players can switch between them.
A recent post on LinkedIn by Ubisoft employee Arisa Lagunzad hinted at a 2024 release for the “biggest blockbuster” from Ubisoft. Although the post has since been edited to remove the mention of 2024, the translated text still refers to Assassin’s Creed Codename Red as a title for the next year. This aligns with previous rumors about a similar release window.
The Future of Assassin’s Creed
In addition to Codename Red, Ubisoft is also reportedly working on another project, Assassin’s Creed Codename Hexe. This game is said to be set in late 16th/early 17th century Germany during the reign of the Holy Roman Empire. Both games are expected to be playable via Assassin’s Creed Infinity, a live-service hub for future titles in the series.
While the release window for Assassin’s Creed Codename Red is still speculative, fans are eagerly awaiting more details from Ubisoft.
The next major sequel, Assassin’s Creed Mirage, is set to release in October, providing fans with more Assassin’s Creed action in the meantime.
