Ubisoft Reportedly Has Annual Assassin’s Creed Releases Stacked Up To 2026
Ubisoft has reportedly reverted to its annual Assassin’s Creed release schedule all the way up to the year 2026.
According to Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier, Ubisoft is all set to announce several new entries in its flagship franchise at Ubisoft Forward this Saturday, including one that takes place in feudal Japan and another that is set is based around the witch trials of the Holy Roman Empire.
Meanwhile, Tom Henderson took to Twitter to reveal that Assassin’s Creed Mirage is scheduled for release sometime in 2023, while Project Red, the game set in feudal Japan is scheduled for 2024. Lastly, the third game in the series i.e. Project Hexe, was originally intended for 2025, but has since been pushed to 2026, claims Henderson. This suggests that the publisher is looking to return to its annual release schedule for the Assassin’s Creed series in future.
Previously, it was reported that Assassin’s Creed Mirage will mark a return to basics for the series. Youtuber j0nathan claimed that the game will take place in Baghdad between the years 870-860, and it will bring the series back to its basic origins, with heavy inspiration from the first Assassin’s Creed game. He added that it will not feature RPG elements, such as the leveling system, dialogue choices, gender choice found in recent Assassin’s Creed games. He also claimed that AC Mirage will feature lots of NPCs in the streets, and that the goal is to have as many as the ones seen in Assassin’s Creed Unity.
In another leak involving AC Mirage, information regarding the game’s future DLC was extracted via the Ubisoft store. The information essentially revealed the name of its DLC, which is titled The Forty Thieves. The Ubisoft store leak lends further credibility to prior leaks that suggested the game takes place in the city of Baghdad in Iraq. The Forty Thieves is a popular story from the One Thousand and One Nights in Iraqi folklore.
